Navigation and trajectory control of a robotic hummingbird

Units : Department of control engineering and system analysis | ULB809

Description :

This project is a part of the COLIBRI project, which aims at building a robot mimicking the flight of a natural hummingbird. The
objective of the research is to integrate appropriate sensors (such as vision-based sensors) to the COLIBRI control board in order
to, in one hand, increase the accuracy of the hovering flight and, on the other hand, utilize it as a navigation system to perform
desired trajectories. Then a control algorithm will be developed to process the real-time signal obtained by the integrated
sensor in order to steer the robot through the desired trajectory. The performance of the proposed control algorithm including sensor
integration will be evaluated by flight experiments.
