Drones have been increasingly used in various domains, including ecological monitoring in forests. However, the endurance and noise of drones have limited their deployment to short flight missions above canopies. To address these limitations, we introduce ALBERO: a framework comprising a mechanical solution and an optimal planner to realise...

Traditional landing gear consists of rigid linkages with dampers. They require a flat surface to function. In unstructured environments such as lunar craters or the martian polar region, these conditions are not always met. In this work, we equip a conventional quadrotor with four continuously deformable passive landing limbs with a logarithmic...

Mobile robots have revolutionized the public and private sectors for transportation, exploration, and search and rescue. Efficient energy consumption and robust environmental interaction needed for complex tasks can be achieved in aerial–terrestrial robots by combining advantages of each locomotion mode. This review surveys over two decades...

In this paper, we present the ADAPT, a novel reconfigurable force-balanced parallel manipulator for spatial motions and interaction capabilities underneath a drone. The reconfigurable aspect allows different motion-based 3-DoF operation modes like translational, rotational, planar, and so on, without the need for disassembly. For the purpose of...

Sensor launching is an approach to remote sensor placement which can accurately deploy sensor nodes while maintaining a safe distance from obstacles, making it a promising method for hazardous environments such as nuclear facilities. Moreover, as long as the sensor’s trajectory can be accurately predicted, up to ±5 cm precision can be achieved...

Aerial manipulators have the unique ability to cover wide-spread areas within a single mission, making them ideal for the transport and placement of sensors required to build an instrumented environment. Recent work in the field has focused on controllers for aerial interaction that account for compliance during contact-based tasks, omitting...

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are widely used for environmental surveying and exploration thanks to their maneuverability and accessibility. Until recently, however, these platforms were mainly used as passive systems that observe their environments visually and do not interact physically. The capability of UAVs to physically interact with...

The tasks that unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have taken upon have progressively grown in complexity over the years, alongside with the level of autonomy with which they are carried out. In this work, we present an example<br/>of aerial screwing operations with a fully-actuated tilt-rotor platform. Key contributions include a new control...

Flapping wing micro aerial vehicles (FWMAVs) are known for their flight agility and maneuverability. These bio-inspired and lightweight flying robots still present limitations in their ability to fly in direct wind and gusts, as their stability is severely compromised in contrast with their biological counterparts. To this end, this work aims at...

Flyers in nature equip different airflow sensing mechanisms to navigate through wind disturbances with remarkable flight stability. Embracing bio-inspiration, airflow sensing with conventional sensors has long been utilized in flight control for larger micro air vehicles (MAVs). Bio-inspired flapping wing MAVs (FWMAVs) have extremely limited...
