Efficient Modeling of Morphing Wing Flight Using Neural Networks and Cubature Rules

  title={Efficient Modeling of Morphing Wing Flight Using Neural Networks and Cubature Rules},
  author={Paul Ghanem and Yunus Bicer and Deniz Erdoğmuş and Alireza Ramezani},
Fluidic locomotion of flapping Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) can be very complex, particularly when the rules from insect flight dynamics (fast flapping dynamics and light wings) are not applicable. In these situations, widely used averaging techniques can fail quickly. The primary motivation is to find efficient models for complex forms of aerial locomotion where wings constitute a large part of body mass (i.e., dominant inertial effects) and deform in multiple directions (i.e., morphing wing…

Computational Structure Design of a Bio-Inspired Armwing Mechanism
This work demonstrates that several biologically meaningful degrees of freedom can be interconnected to one another by mechanical intelligence and, as a result, the responsibility of feedback-driven components is subsumed under computational morphology.

Bayesian optimization for learning gaits under uncertainty
Bayesian optimization, a model-based approach to black-box optimization under uncertainty, is evaluated on both simulated problems and real robots, demonstrating that Bayesian optimization is particularly suited for robotic applications, where it is crucial to find a good set of gait parameters in a small number of experiments.
