Longitudinal Motion Planning for Slung-Loads Using Simplified Models and Rapidly-Exploring Random Trees
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-01)
A randomized motion-planning approach to providing guidance for helicopters with under-slung loads is presented. Rapidly-exploring Random Trees are adapted to plan trajectories for simplified helicopter-load models. Four ...
Guidance, Navigation, Control, and Operator Interfaces for Small Rapid Response Unmanned Helicopters
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-04)
This paper focuses on the development of small rapid response reconnaissance unmanned helicopters (1 to 3 kg, electric), for use by the military in urban areas and by civilian first responders, in terms of system ...
Fourteen Years of Autonomous Rotorcraft Research at the Georgia Institute of Technology
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013)
This paper presents a brief history and description of capabilities of the Georgia Tech Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Research Facility, while extracting and summarizing many significant and applicable results produced in the ...
Indoor GPS-denied Context Based SLAM Aided Guidance for Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-08)
Autonomous exploration and mapping of environments is an important problem in robotics. Efficient exploration of structured environments requires that the robot utilize region-specific exploration strategies and coordinate ...
Benchmarking of UAV Guidance Systems in Nap of the Earth (NOE) Flight
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-05)
This paper describes the development of a proposed framework of metrics for the evaluation of the performance of aircraft guidance systems. The methodologies and metrics developed remain generally agnostic to whether or ...
