This cool little Quadrotor was designed by Arash Kalantari and Matthew Spenko, engineers from the robotics laboratory at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
This robot can not only fly but even move on the ground. All this is possible because of a rolling cage that allows the robot to roll easily on the ground.
The cage also makes HyTAQ a crash-proof Quadrotor. It further acts as a shock absorber and can avoid HyTAQ banging into walls. While the primary purpose of the cage is to allow ground mobility, it does actually protect the rotors.
The engineers say that this Quadrotor can operate in both indoor and outdoor environments. Even the Wind gusts can't forbid its motion.
