Gonzalez Archundia, Guillermo (author)
The continuous improvement and miniaturisation of elements in drones have been essential for making flapping-wing drones a reality. This thesis presents an integral approach for accurate indoor position control and estimation on flapping-wing drones. The approach considers three main aspects to enhance transient response of the drone. The first...

Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicle (FWMAV) technologies are emerging due to the vast number of applications that they can be utilized in. Researchers and scientists are constantly seeking to push the boundaries to the extreme in terms of miniaturization of this technology, making it smaller, lighter and better performing. In order to achieve this...

Flapping wing micro air vehicles (FWMAV's) are a subcategory of unmanned aerial vehicle which use flapping wings for thrust generation. The high agility and maneuverability of FWMAV's are very favorable attributes, making them more applicable in cluttered spaces. A tailless FWMAV called the Delfly Nimble has been developed at the Delft...

In recent years, an increasing amount of research projects contributed to the development of flapping-wing-micro-aerial-vehicles (FWMAV) that can fly and perform hovering flight in confined spaces. However, scaling laws have a negative influence on the aerodynamic efficiency and actuator efficiency. Consequently, FWMAVs suffer from very limited...

The most simplistic acts in nature can be incredibly complex to replicate. Among which, insects in general, are profound micro-machines with evolution as the backbone for their most optimized features. This study focuses on developing an efficient sensing and processing strategy for autonomous flight maneuvers in Atalanta, a bio-inspired robotic...

Tiny flying platforms with a wingspan of up to 20 centimetres are build to mimic flying insects: Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles (FWMAVs). Flying insects have the required size and also their flying capabilities are highly interesting. In order to maximize the energy efficiency of a FWMAV, the vehicle is usually driven in one of the resonance...

This thesis studies a controllability approach for general resonant compliant systems. These systems exploit resonance to obtain a specific dynamic response at relatively low actuation power. This type of systems is often lightweight, is scalable and minimizes frictional losses through the use of compliant hinges. Some insect-inspired Flapping...

Lightweight vibrating structures (such as flapping wing micro air vehicle (FWMAV) designs) often require some form of control. To achieve controllability, local structural property changes (e.g., damping and stiffness changes) might be induced in an active manner. The stroke-averaged lift force production of a FWMAV wing can be modified by...

Lu, Y. (author)
Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) is a group of unmanned aerial vehicles that is autonomous and with a size restriction. Thanks to its possible application ranging from civil search-and-rescue missions to military surveillance missions, there is rising interest in the MAV related topics. From the previous work of the Atlanta Project, a vehicle is designed...
