Description

Researchers have worked out a way to get pesky flocks of birds in a flap - the RobotFalcon.
Collisions between birds and airplanes can damage aircraft, resulting in delays and cancellation of flights, costing the international civil aviation industry more than £1.2 billion annually.
The University of Groningen and partners, therefore, developed an artificial raptor, inspired specifically by a peregrine falcon.

    BeschrijvingMankind has always been interested in taking to the skies and flying as free as the birds. Now people can travel on airplanes that soar in the air, usually above the birds. But sometimes not. .Birds have been a problem for airplanes since the beginning of aviation. According to CNN, collisions between birds and airplanes kill over 10,000 birds a year and endanger airplanes. But now there is a solution.

    BeschrijvingA wildlife strike is when an animal (typically a bird) hits an airplane as it’s taking off, flying, or landing. (Think Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger’s “Miracle on the Hudson”) About 16,000 wildlife strikes occur each year in the U.S.—posing an abnormally large risk to pilots and passengers. While most prevention methods involve delaying takeoff or landing until bird activity dies down, it can cause disruptions to already strained flight schedules and systems.

    BeschrijvingAirplanes and birds have been sharing the skies since the first ever flight back in 1903.
    However, to say this has led to some issues, particularly over the last few decades, is something of an understatement.
    Collisions between birds and aircraft are the cause of thousands of bird deaths every year.
    Such incidents, known as bird strikes, can also result in aircraft damage, as well as delays and cancellation of flights, costing the International Civil Aviation Organization a reported $1.4 billion each year.
    Airport wildlife management teams currently employ a number of deterrents, such as drones and birds of prey -- including falcons -- to try to scare birds away from the airport surroundings. However, breeding and training falcons isn't exactly cheap, and the birds can be difficult to manage.
    But could a robotic peregrine falcon developed by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands be the solution?

    BeschrijvingA flying robot that resembles a peregrine falcon can be used to scare away flocks of birds in fields, performing better at this task than a standard drone.

    RobotFalcon resembles a peregrine falcon in size, shape and colouration with a wingspan of 70 centimetres, weighs 245 grams and flies at 15 metres per second. It was created by Rolf Storms at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and colleagues. To test its efficiency, the researchers conducted trials on 54 separate flocks. RobotFalcon was able to clear all the targeted birds within 5 minutes, while a standard drone could only clear 80 per cent of the birds in 56 separate flocks over the same time period.

    RobotFalcon could replace traditional bird deterrents including scarecrows, recordings of bird distress calls or lethal approaches, such as guns. However, the current prototype has a battery life of just 15 minutes and requires a human operator. In the future, the control mechanism could be automated to reduce the need for human intervention.
