Researchers Design Small Robot Similar to Shape of Jellyfish

According to a new report, researchers from the New York University have designed a flying machine, which looks similar to shape of jellyfish. Leif Ristroph and Stephen Childress are the two scientists who are planning to create a small robot for monitoring traffic.

A meeting was held at the American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics and Leif presented their views in the meeting regarding the making of such robot. Robots are capable of solving all tasks whether it is manufacturing of bulky devices or the development of humanoid helpmates.

Researchers said that they have designed a robot that resembles a jellyfish, which is held in an upright flight motion. The main feature of this robot is that it could be useful to monitor wide range of surveillance activities. Researchers said that the major difficulties faced by them is making of this project is the process of achieving stability. The main drawback of this robot is that it can be limited by the weight it carries.

Ashutosh Saxena, Microsoft Faculty Fellow in Cornell University's Department of Computer Science, said: "In research in this area, turning to the right kinds of new designs are very important". He said that many things are to be kept in mind at the time of creation of new designs.
