Biologically inspired and self-powered dynamic systems

Funding body

Brunel University


Project description

This research investigates the development of robots and systems inspired by animal and nature. The examples include bird- and insect-inspired micro air vehicles, developing control systems inspired by nature (e.g. Psi control) for multi-robot/vehicle collaboration, and bio-inspired energy systems such as vertical axis wind turbines inspired by fish schooling. For more information see: http://people.brunel.ac.uk/~mestffk/Bioinspired.htm

On the self-powered systems research, the topics are related to solar-powered autonomous aerial vehicles (e.g. airships), solar-powered ground vehicles and aircrafts, self-powered control systems, etc. For more information see: http://people.brunel.ac.uk/~mestffk/SelfPowered.htm
