We study bird flight in two free flight arenas using high-speed cameras and food rewards.
We build a one-of-a-kind wind
tunnel for birds to find inspiration for designing aerial robots. The wind tunnel has
very low turbulence (<0.03%) and is acoustically optimized. The test section
is 1.0 x 0.8m and the wind speed is 0 - 50 m/s. Details can be found in our RSOS paper and check out the
construction in this time-lapse.
