Flapping wing robots show promise as platforms for safe and efficient flight in near-human operations, thanks to their ability to agile maneuver or perch at a low Reynolds number. The growing trend in the automatization of these robots has to go hand in hand with an increase in the payload capacity. This work provides a new passive morphing wing prototype to increase the payload of this type of UAV. The prototype is based on a biased elastic joint and the holistic research also includes the modelling, simulation and optimization scheme, thus allowing to adapt the prototype for any flapping wing robot.
An earlier video shows the ornithopter autonomously flying outdoors, around a field of sunflowers to be exact and crop monitoring would be a task that could be within its capabilities, The project is funded by a Griffin ERC Advanced Grant, which explains the ghostly apparition superimposed on this video:
