By analyzing physiological structure and motion features of bird wings, this paper aims to design bird wings' driving and complying planar structures from two angles of Bionics: the structure of flapping bird wings' bone and the discipline of flying. In addition, this paper studies the discipline of bird wings' tangential motion in order to design a drive mechanism which fulfills driving tangential wings' structure. At last, we researchers conduct a simulation of kinematics and get a satisfying result, so as to provide a basis for design large-scale bird bionic machine.
