Students Build Multi-Use Drop Vehicles

November 21, 2016

The challenge: Prove the practicality of a compact cube-shaped vehicle transforming into a drone, navigating to a particular destination and then dropping its payload at the targeted spot. Over the summer, three rising mechanical engineering sophomores in the Students Tackling Advanced Research (STAR) Scholars Program took on this ambitious task. The result is a prototype that shows promise in its early stages. So-called drop vehicles can be used to deliver food and medical care packages to war zones, online orders to front doors or ultimately, probes to outer space to explore planets.

Spotlight on Research

Ripplocation spotlight 2016

Every material can bend and break. Through nearly a century’s worth of research, scientists have had a pretty good understanding of how and why. But, according to new findings from Drexel University materials science and engineering researchers, our understanding of how layered materials succumb to stresses and strains was lacking. The report suggests that, when compressed, layered materials — everything from sedimentary rocks, to beyond-whisker-thin graphite — will form a series of internal buckles, or ripples, as they deform.
