Insect inspired robot sensors

As we know there is interest in insect navigation from engineers who are interested in lightweight controllers for robots, this is particularly true for flying robots where there exists a greater premium for weight. These two papers represent insect inspired sensors for flying robots. Garratt et al have demonstrated the efficacy of a snapshot based hover controller and Sturzl and Carey have implemented a polarisation detector which can extract compass information and calculate sun position even given an moving robot platform.
