Flight force measurements for a micromechanical flying insect

  title={Flight force measurements for a micromechanical flying insect},
  author={Robert J. Wood and Ronald S. Fearing},
Key to the success of the micromechanical flying insect project is developing sensors for flight force measurement. At the lowest level of MFI control is the wing control system which will rely on wing and thorax mounted force sensors. These sensors will have the dual function of stroke by stroke force characterization and system identification as well as use in feedback control for all levels. There are two methods for force sensing on a flying robotic insect, measurements directly on the… CONTINUE READING
