Flight Results of Autonomous Fixed-Wing UAV Transitions to and from Stationary Hover
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-08)
Fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with the ability to hover have significant potential for applications in urban or other constrained environments where the combination of fast speed, endurance, and stable ...
Development of an Autonomous Aerial Reconnaissance System at Georgia Tech
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-07)
The Georgia Tech aerial robotics team has developed a system to compete in the International Aerial Robotics Competition, organized by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems, International. The team is a multi-disciplinary ...
Georgia Tech Aerial Robotics Team: 2009 International Aerial Robotics Competition Entry
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-07)
This paper examines the use of low-cost range and target identification sensors on a stable flying vehicle for suitability in solving the 5th Mission proposed for the 2009 International Aerial Robotics Competition. The ...
Adaptive Trajectory Control for Autonomous Helicopters
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005)
For autonomous helicopter flight, it is common to separate the flight control problem into an inner loop that controls attitude and an outer loop that controls the translational trajectory of the helicopter. In previous ...
Real-Time System Identification of a Small Multi-Engine Aircraft
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-08)
In-flight identification of an aircraft's dynamic model can benefit adaptive control schemes by providing estimates of aerodynamic stability derivatives in real time. This information is useful when the dynamic model ...
