Flight endurance is still a bottleneck for many types of unmanned air vehicle (UAV) applications. While battery technology improves over the years, for flights that last an entire day, batteries are still insufficient. Hydrogen-powered fuel cells offer an interesting alternative but pose stringent requirements on the platform. The required...

Flow visualisations are essential to better understand the unsteady aerodynamics of flapping wing flight. The issues inherent to animal experiments, such as poor controllability and unnatural flapping when tethered, can be avoided by using robotic flyers that promise for a more systematic and repeatable methodology. Here, we present a new...

Insects are among the most agile natural flyers.Hypotheses on their flight control cannot always be validated by experiments with animals or tethered robots.To this end, we developed a programmable and agile autonomous free-flying robot controlled through bio-inspired motion changes of its flapping wings.Despite being 55 times the size of a...

Autonomous flight of Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles (FWMAVs) is a major challenge in the field of robotics, due to their light weight and their flapping-induced body motions. An FWMAV is presented weighing a mere 20 g while all its sensors and processing for autonomous flight are onboard. The navigation is based on a 4-g stereo vision camera...

During flight, natural fliers flap, twist and bend their wings to enhance flight performance. Lift and thrust benefit from flexibility as well as from both passive and active wing deformation. At the same time, the active deformations are used for flight control. In this study, we investigate strategies of control moments generation in a bio...

The DelftaCopter, a tilt-body tailsitter UAV, endures large gyroscopic moments due to the single helicopter rotor providing its thrust. In previous research by de Wagter et al.[1] the DelftaCopter’s attitude dynamics were modeled using a rigid rotor, as is customary for small helicopter modeling. A controller based on this model was unable to...

Enlarging the flight envelope of aircraft has been a goal since the beginning of aviation. But requirements to fly very fast and to hover are conflicting. During the design of the DelftaCopter, a tail-sitter hybrid UAV with a single large rotor for lift in hover and propulsion in forward flight, the design of the rotor needs to properly balance...

To participate in the Outback Medical Express UAV Challenge 2016, a vehicle was designed and tested that can autonomously hover precisely, takeoff and land vertically, fly fast forward efficiently, and use computer vision to locate a person and a suitable landing location. The vehicle is a novel hybrid tail‐sitter combining a delta‐shaped...

One of the emerging tasks for Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) is autonomous indoor navigation. While commonly employed platforms for such tasks are micro-quadrotors, insectinspired flapping wing MAVs can offer many advantages, such<br/>as being inherently safe due to their low inertia, reciprocating wings bouncing of objects or potentially lower noise...

Maintaining stable flight during high turbulence intensities is challenging for fixed-wing micro air vehicles (MAV). Two methods are proposed <br/>to improve the disturbance rejection performance of the MAV: incremental nonlinear dynamic inversion (INDI) control and phaseadvanced pitch probes. INDI uses the angular acceleration measurements to...

Despite an intensive research on flapping flight and flapping wing MAVs in recent years, there are still no accurate models of flapping flight dynamics. This is partly due to lack of free flight data, in particular during manoeuvres. In this work, we present, for the first time, a comparison of free flight forces estimated using solely an on...

Autonomous flight of pocket drones is challenging due to the severe limitations on on-board energy, sensing, and processing power. However, tiny drones have great potential as their small size allows maneuvering through narrow spaces while their small weight provides significant safety advantages. This paper presents a computationally efficient...

The study investigates the relation between wing deformation and unsteady force generation of the flapping-wing MAV DelFly II in hovering flight configuration. The three-dimensional wing deformation was measured with a stereo-vision system, while fluid forces were acquired simultaneously with a force sensor. Comparison of the results for...
