Tiny birdlike claws allow drones to hang in a tree and save power.

When creating the mount, scientists were inspired by the claws of the birds, which allow them to fasten or hang

on almost any surface. The device consists of several bent legs on hinges, as well as one small mount.

When looking for a place to land a dronescans the space nearby using lidar. Having found a suitable surface, the system compares it with images of the most suitable surfaces from the library.

We have developed a modular and drive design.landing gear for unmanned aerial vehicles with a rotating wing, consisting of an activated capture module and a set of contact modules that are installed on curved legs. This modularity has significantly expanded the range of possible structures that can be used for recreation, compared to bird claws.

Previously, the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States (FAA) obliged all drones owners to attach license plates on them that can be seen from a long distance.
