Active flow control utilizes small and microscale perturbations to manipulate and redirect airflow. It could be tiny inlets and outlets embedded in the wing cross-section or even active pneumatic systems that actually blow air air over the surface of the wing, usually located at the front wall, to manipulate and optimize airflow. And yes, this could allow the craft to change direction without requiring the use of ailerons and such.

Alternatively, you could do passive flow control separate or in tandem. For example, how the dimples on a golf ball work

We used this technology for wind turbine generators in an architectural application which is how I am familiar with them
