A Mesoscale Robot that can Run, Fly, and GraspThe agility and ease of control make a quadrotor aircraft an attractive platform for studying swarm behavior, modeling, and control. The energetics of sustained flight for small aircraft, however, limit typical applications to only a few minutes. Adding payloads – and the mechanisms used to manipulate them – reduces this flight time even further. To solve this problem, we envisioned, designed and fabricated a novel robot platform having three main capabilities: walking, grasping, and flight.
