Most current bird-inspired flapping wing air vehicles (FWAVs) use a single actuator to flap both wings. This approach couples and synchronizes the motions of the wings while providing a variable flapping rate at a constant amplitude or angle. Independent wing control has the potential to provide a greater flight envelope. Driving the wings independently(More)
A tactile sensing architecture is presented for detection of surface features that have a particular target size, and the concept is demonstrated with a braille pattern. The approach is akin to an inverse of mechanical profilometry. The sensing structure is constructed by suspending a stretchable strain-sensing membrane over a cavity. The structure is moved(More)
