In the DelFly project, we design and study autonomous flapping wing MAVs. Our approach is to always work with flying platforms that can carry payload such as a camera. On the one hand, we work toward ever more autonomous flapping wing MAVs that can be used for actual applications, ranging from search-and-rescue to entertainment. On […]

Autonomous flight of Micro to Nano Air Vehicles

The challenges in the autonomous flight of MAVs derive from the stringent weight and power requirements of MAVs. For example, the DelFly II flapping wing MAV weighs around 16 gram, including battery, sensors, and processing. In the same time, MAVs move rather quickly and have to respond in real time to their environment in order […]
