Landing strategies in honeybees and applications to uninhabited airborne vehicles
An application of insect visuomotor behavior to automatic control of landing is explored. Insects, being perhaps more reliant on image motion cues than mammals or higher vertebrates, are proving to be an excellent organism in which to investigate how information on optic flow is exploited to guide locomotion and navigation. We have observed how bees perform grazing landings on a flat surface and have deduced the algorithmic basis for the behavior. A smooth landing is achieved by a surprisingly...[Show more]
