On the same day, organized by the Intelligent Biomimetic Design Lab of the College of Engineering, robotic fish and quadrotor UAVs put up a show in the water and in the air. Twelve robotic fish raised up the school badge slowly from underwater in the Weiming Lake, while another eight bionic robotic fish stretched the celebration banner horizontally in water. In addition, 54 small quadrotor UAVs form a group of drones in the air. Based on GPS information, they use artificial intelligence technology such as deep learning to realize the transformation of the autonomous cooperative formation of UAVs. The flight altitude is 50 meters, showing patterns of PKU, COE and the 120th Celebration logo.
