In the previous work, it was demonstrated that one can effectively employ CTRNN-EH (a neuromorphic variant of EH method) methodology to evolve autonomous neuromorphic flight controllers for a flapping wing robot. This paper further explores the similar prospective by evolving non-autonomous neuromorphic controllers, which would render them potentially deployable controllers in a realistic micro-scale flapping wing robot. A summary of the previous work related to evolving autonomous flight controllers for a flapping-wing mechanical insect is provided along with the incentives towards evolving the non-autonomous controllers for the same. Further, the details of the experimental design and the outcomes of experiments to evolve non-autonomous flight controllers are provided with appropriate discussion and implications for possible future work.
