Bio-inspired Soft Aerial Robotics
About the Workshop
With the increased interest in adopting smart and functional materials in creating soft aerial robots, we have seen a wide variety of innovative and morphologically adaptive structures utilized for flying systems. This workshop, extending from a successful debut last year at RoboSoft 2022, continues to aim to bring together experts working in the field of soft aerial robotics. The workshop will explore current challenges in: (1) improving maneuverability and flight efficiency through bio-inspiration; (2) multi-modal mobility between aerial, terrestrial, and aquatic environments; (3) robustness to landing and collision through structural adaptions; (4) adaptive manipulation and perching in aerial systems; (5) bio-inspired aerial construction and nesting; (6) bio-hybrid flying structures, biodegradability, and sustainable transient aerial robotics; (7) modeling and control of soft aerial robots; (8) Soft sensing for aerial vehicles and morphing wings.
