Abstract: This paper focuses on the autonomous take off and landing technology of bird like flapping wing aerial vehicle. Firstly, the motion mechanism of natural birds during take off and landing is analyzed through literature research. Then the domestic and foreign research on autonomous take off and landing technology for bird like flapping wing aerial vehicle is analyzed, and four types of technologies are summarized, including vertical take off and landing technology, jumping take off and landing technology, taxiing take off and landing technology, and gliding take off and landing technology. Finally, the future development trend and research content of autonomous take off and landing technology for bird like flapping wing aerial vehicle are prospected. 

Key words: Bird like flapping wing aerial vehicle (BFAV), Autonomous take off and landing, Take off mechanism, Jumping take off, Take off and landing mechanism
