This video describes recent advances in grasping unstructured objects from a hovering Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platform. Typically, rotorcraft avoid contact with objects in the environment due to both coupled and uncoupled flight dynamics. We introduce the Yale Aerial Manipulator and demonstrate a working system for stable grasping while hovering. We discuss the platform’s underactuated gripper and its contribution to aircraft stability while grasping.
