Avian Sensors for Aerospace Applications Public

The goal of this project is to develop and test a new sensor, for robotic aircraft, that has the ability to sense airflow conditions, similar to that of a bird. This project focuses on the concept of having numerous sensors to detect the environment instead of a single sensor such as a pitot tube, which is often used on standard aircraft. By using their feathers, birds have the ability to sense the airflow over their entire wing. This is why they are capable of more stable, yet complex flight patterns. This biologically inspired sensor is designed, constructed, and tested to be utilized on a robotic aircraft platform.
