A jellyfish-inspired drone supposed to fly in zero gravity in a space station (like jellyfishes do in water).

This project is solving the ZERO GEE Bee – Your Friendly Neighborhood Drone challenge.


Our aim is to design and simulate a drone that emulates the jellyfish movement in water. Jellyfishes are claimed to be the most energy efficient animal in water movement, and we believe that zero-g is somehow similar to floating in water. We are developing the CAD sketch of the drone, then we will populate a Gazebo world set in ISS with our drone and show how it will be able to move in that model. .
