Prototypage d'un objet volant mimant l'insecte

Abstract : This manuscript reports a work which aims to develop a tiny flying robots inspired by natural flyers. Our main objective is to devise a flying robot mimicking insects in terms of kinematics and scale using MEMS technologies in order to answer the scale challenges: the large-scale manufacturing and the system's small scale. The success this project faces different challenges such as aeroelastic aspects of wings and drone autonomy.In this work we propose the use of original concepts like resonance and passive torsion of the wings which are implemented on all-polymer prototypes obtained using a micromachining SU-8 photoresist process. In order to achieve a better efficiency of the prototype, each element of the energy transduction has been carefully examined and optimized. Especially, the actuation, the transmission and the wings in order to increase the lift. These improvements demonstrate experimentally that the prototype is able to produce a complex kinematic and compensate 75 % of its weight.
