Watch a video of U of I Coordinated Science Lab’s “RoboBat”

The description of the YouTube video reads, “A fully autonomous robotic bat is coming soon.”

Developed by a team of U of I professors including CSL Professor Seth Hutchinson, CSL and Aerospace Engineering Assistant Professor Soon-Jo Chung, CSL and Aerospace Associate Professor Timothy Bretl and Civil and Environmental Engineering Assistant Professor Mani Golparvar-Fard, the mechanical “bat” was developed with a $1.5 million National Science Foundation grant.

The RoboBat was developed for use on construction sites… for something. See it fly below.
