DESIGN AND MODELLING OF NANO AERIAL VEHICLE HUMMINGBIRD ON HOVER FLIGHT
In nature, there are thousands of flapping insects and flying bird’s species. Each one has spectacular flight stability, dynamic and operated in high diversity of flight speed and mission. Each one has superior effectiveness and high efficiency. In this article, relates with designing and modelling for effective and efficient hummingbird mechanism design during hovering flight. This mechanism represents new and different concept for point of Nano aerial vehicle’s (NAV’s) mechanism design. Flapping wing tip path for hummingbird was generated from morphological experiment data’s. Slider crank mechanism designed to be an effective mechanism and same motion with path of hummingbird and analyzed on Simulink with driving crank hummingbird flapping frequency as 25 Hz. During hovering, forces were calculated. After that, structural components were designed in terms of consideration strengths and deflections. The system modelled on MATLAB using of Sim-mechanics Toolboxes.
