This book discusses novel ultra-light flying robots and control systems designed for fully autonomous indoor aerial navigation. Among the aspects discussed are the non-negligible weight and energy constraints, as well as the need for rapid (but low-energy) sensory-motor mapping. The book explores the application of biological principles to the development of navigaition controllers allowing flying robots to fly autonomously while avoiding collisions.
