AbstractThis proposed study intends to find ways to improve the mechanical efficiency of robotic and remotely piloted flapping winged vehicles through the incorporation of elastic components. This will allow the manufacture of such vehicles with greatly enhanced flight duration and agility. Work will include the design, prototyping, and testing of micro air vehicle wing flapping mechanisms with tunable elastic components for increasing throughput power transmission efficiency.
