Abstract:In the report a test setup was made for the Robird using parallel leaf springs. The goal was to design it in such a way that when placed in a wind tunnel the Robird would be kept in place but would other oscillate and pitch at it would during actual flight. Two prototypes were designed, the second a lighter version of the first, and both showed a response similar to the mathematical model made. Time of Flight sensors were to be used to measure the displacement of the Robird’s body and while these operational they cannot yet be implemented properly. The prototypes made serve as a proof of concept, but more work needs to done on making the setup lighter, investigating the pitchingmotion, and implementing the sensors. Robotics andMechatronics
