QUADROTOR TECHNOLOGY


A quadcopter, also called a quadrotor helicopter or quadrotor, is a multirotor helicopter that is lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadcopters are classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is generated by a set of rotors

There is currently a limited diversity of vehicles capable of Vertical Take-Off and Landing. However there is a visible interest by scholars and admirers of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for a particular type of aircraft called quadrotor . This work aims precisely at the design and

Nonlinear dynamic modeling for high performance control of a quadrotor

In this paper, we present a detailed dynamic and aerodynamic model of a quadrotor that can be used for path planning and control de- sign of high performance, complex and aggres- sive manoeuvres without the need for iterative learning techniques. The accepted nonlinear dynamic

Dynamics, control and planning for cooperative manipulation of payloads suspended by cables from multiple quadrotor robots
free download

We address the problem of cooperative transporta-tion of a cable-suspended payload by multiple quadrotors. In previous work, quasi-static models have been used to study this problem. However, these approaches are severely limited because they ignore the payload

This paper presents a novel adaptive control algorithm solving the trajectory tracking problem for quadrotor aerial vehicles. The control law is derived using a backstepping procedure. A technique derived from dynamic surface control is used to simplify the

Modelling of the flight dynamics of a quadrotor helicopter

Historically, helicopters with four rotors (quadrotors) have not been very common, mainly because most of the usual payloads could be lifted using one or two rotors. However, the quadrotor possesses some special characteristics that make it attractive. One, of course, is

Modeling, simulation and flight testing of an autonomous quadrotor

Rotary-wing Unmanned Mini Aerial Vehicles (RUMAV) represent a useful class of flying robots because of their strong abilities of VTOL, high maneuverability and controllability, especially in enclosed areas. In this paper, we present the development of an autonomous

Different approaches of PID control UAV type quadrotor
free download

In this paper we focus on the different control strategies for the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The control task is formulated as an angular stabilization of the quadrotor platform, and also as a tracking problem of chosen state variables. The PID algorithm has been

This thesis presents research directed towards the development of practical quadrotor robot helicopters. Most existing quadrotor robot vehicles have been based on consumer flying toys that do not offer the performance necessary to consider commercial applications. The This chapter presents an overview of the rigid body dynamics of a quadrotor as well as several controllers for the quadrotor . First, the Newton-Euler equations of motion that govern the quadrotor motion are described, and it is shown that the quadrotor model is differentially
