Flybot: Mimicking Fruit Fly Response Patterns for Threat Evasion

Check out Flybot, a +Google Science Fair project that uses biomimicry to enable flying robots used in search and rescue missions to evade moving threats. Created by 14 year old High School Freshman +Mihir Garimella, Flybot aims to create a simpler, faster, and more practical method of onboard threat evasion for flying robots, inspired by the way fruit flies detect and respond to dynamic threats.

Mihir designed a computationally and physically lightweight sensor module, modeled after the fruit fly's rudimentary but fast visual system and escape behaviors, and verified Flybot’s effectiveness both experimentally and through a still image comparison to fruit fly escape.

Love what Google is doing here: "We believe that the field could benefit from a large, standard set with benchmarks for easy comparison and experiments with new modeling techniques. To that end, we are releasing scripts that convert a set of public data into a language model consisting of over a billion words, with standardized training and test splits ... [and] the processed data in one convenient location, along with the training and test data. This will make it much easier for the research community to quickly reproduce results, and we hope will speed up progress on these tasks. The field needs a new and better standard benchmark. Currently, researchers report from a set of their choice, and results are very hard to reproduce because of a lack of a standard in preprocessing. We hope that this will solve both those problems."
