Like the SmartBird the eMotionButterflies are flying solely by the propulsion of the wings.
They are radio controlled by a central computer localizing the eMotionButterflies at millimeter precision 160 times per second. The eMotionButterflies are flying in a controlled area like a small swarm. Usually four butterflies are flying simultaniously, however a lot more can be tracked at the same time.
- Intially shown at the Hanover Fair in April 2014
- JNTec developed all electronics and programming for the system integration. Additionally the SkySpirit System is used for automatic control of the eMotionButterflies.
