Development of insect-inspired flight control strategies, with a focus on wind gusts rejection. A collaboration with Experimental Zoology group at Wageningen UR, funded by NWO-TTW.

Flow measurements near the wings and in the wake of a free-flying flapping wing robot using PIV and PTV techniques, with an optical motion tracking system in the loop for robot’s position control. A collaboration of MAVLab and Aerodynamics group of TU Delft.

A lightweight, yet fully autonomous insect-inspired flapping wing robot controlled by an onboard autopilot computer and a stereo vision system. Its capabilities were demonstrated in a multiroom exploration task.
