An innovative aerial vehicle (UAV) has been developed by a team of researchers from the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H). With its help, packets of different weight and size can be picked up. Its name is Elasticopter. According to a report by Indian Express, this drone vehicle has been developed by Suraj Bonagiri, aged 24 years. It is considered a big step in drone technology. UAV is also undergoing a patent process.
Many deficiencies in existing delivery drones
The biggest reason behind this latest innovation is the inability of existing delivery drones, which can operate according to the size difference. However, the packets to be delivered are not according to the size. Suraj told The Indian Express that any forced filling and lifting of inappropriate payloads makes the drone ineffective, unstable and also messes with security.
On the other hand, the UAV developed by Suraj and other researchers is a regular shape drone with the ability to expand and collapse according to the packet size / size. The UAV is designed in such a way that it does not have to experience any disturbance in flight.

Can spin in all directions
Professor Prakash Yala, who is the Technology Transfer Officer (TTO) and Head of Product Labs of IIIT-H, told Indian Express that innovation is big and the Quadcopter is a drone vehicle that people have been considering for a long time. Explaining the unique features of the device, he said that apart from moving in all directions and holding the package of all weight, the drone vehicle can be bigger and smaller as per the requirement of the package.
