The DALER robot can fly and walk

Deployable Air-Land Exploration Robot can walk and fly.

Inspired by a vampire bat, this wing-morphing, shock-proof DALER robot can walk and fly. Inside the wings there is a foldable skeleton mechanism. Covered with a soft fabric, it can change it’s shape so that they can be used both as wings and as legs. For now it can fly to a location, land and walk. Future development of the DALER includes to hover and to take off autonomously from the ground in order to allow the robot to return to the air.
