The High Performance Robotics Lab at the UC Berkley, funded by the Berkeley Fellowship for Graduate Study, and the NSF GRFP, developed a quadcopter that can change its shape mid-flight, operate in four configurations, and has the ability to continue hovering in three of the configurations.
This research can have potential applications in constructions, search and rescue missions, and inspections in dangerous environments.
