Anti-Turbulence System Inspired By Birds | RMIT University

Published on Oct 27, 2014 Inspired by nature’s own anti-turbulence devices – feathers – RMIT University researchers have developed an innovative system that could spell the end of turbulence on flights. Researchers from RMIT’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Research Team have lodged a provisional patent on the system, which mimics the way feathers help birds detect disturbances in the air.
