Prof. Grau’s recent research has huge implications for small UAVs
His recent research is on paper electronics and lightweight aircraft.
Dr. Grau and colleagues from the University of California, Berkeley, successfully printed a flexible transistor onto paper to manipulate simple flaps on a lightweight glider.
The entire glider weighs less than eight grams, and the approach could enable the low-cost manufacturing of unmanned aerial vehicles for sensing and monitoring applications.
