A micro-aerial vehicle (MAV) is a kind of minor version of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which has a size restriction. MAVs have a wide range of applications in commercial, research, government, and military purposes. UAVs are valuable tools due to some of their useful advantages such as safety, flexibility, relatively low cost of ownership, and ease of operation. Bio-inspired robots have been presented that can both fly and move on land, either by jumping or walking. One of the most critical parts of such vehicles (MAVs) is the vision (visual perception) system. In this chapter, different technologies for designing the vision systems for bio-inspired MAVs will be reviewed.
