Design of a Wing-Morphing, Tailless Aerial Robot for Active Pitch Adjustment during Gliding

Gissler, Ronan O.


  • In this work we present the design of a robot inspired by flying squirrels that can actively adjust pitch mid-flight to modulate its gliding performance. The robot controls its pitch angle by sliding its two wings along the length of its body, thereby shifting the Center-of-Pressure (COP)—where the aerodynamic force acts—relative to the Center-of-Mass (COM)—where the weight force acts.
