Have you ever wondered exactly how an insect swarm works? How it maintains flight or even how for example a Locust Plague may be therefore devastating in such short periods of time and even travel 1000 miles in less than a week? Effectively 1 set in a web-based think tank recently asked these questions. One part stated;
“If air velocity increases, as I think that it lets you do, would it not can main reason that every bee would need to expend MORE energy to maintain flight, not less? It would be like flying into a head wind. The ground velocity is less on the exact speed of the head wind. We basically all are alert to this particular effect”
I believe when you are going to figure in the rest of the concepts as well as actual airflows you’ll see the way they get it done and in addition take into consideration the soil cushion. Faster relative wind caused by all of the other units in the swarm increase effectiveness of the wing. Just like the faster you go the more airflows with the wing of an aircraft, meaning a lot more lift. Everyone wins in the swarm. Except the poor bastard who is the target; that’s saying the attackee.
The inquiring member next states; “Some several other element should play a part of the flight ability of the bee. I think that something is a good wave, backpressure from sound power which each bee produces with the beat of the wing
Well indeed this’s why I am entertaining your line of thinking is that it’s intriguing and a decent question. And as far as I’m concerned, even in case you’re wrong, well I could care less because, I believe we can make a hardware Insect which did therefore better natures design and style and exploiting sound as an additional tool.
Not only for flight, but for communication among Micro-MAVs or MEMs, as well as the single power source by delivering actually BLOS sound waves to a point at that the micro MAV swarm or SmartDust happens to be sent to. I’m keen on this, way ahead of the screwing around with insects.
Certain lets learn what nature can help us and then never ever negate 400 million years of evolution of these fantastic creatures, but let’s build a much better bug bulb (mid-day.Com) for other applications. Maybe to work together with the bees to assist them do the job of theirs better aiding us pollinate the fields and we are going to build them better and safer starting structures from predators and climate for their honeycomb domiciles? Imagine this in 2006.
