Micro-Quadrotor Perching with Dry Adhesive – Drone that sticks to walls!

Perching on several surface orientations using a micro-quadrotor at UMD’s Autonomous Vehicle Lab (Dr. Sean Humbert) with directional adhesives and attachment mechanism from Stanford’s Biomimetics and Dextrous Manipulation Lab (Dr. Mark Cutkosky). The mechanism converts the kinetic energy of the quadrotor into opposed forces to load the gecko-like adhesives. The surface is a sheet of acrylic. This project was completed by Stanford’s Morgan Pope and UMD’s Andrew Kehlenbeck partly under ARL MAST.
