Design Optimization of a Quad-Rotor Capable of Autonomous Flight Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
An autonomous quad-rotor is an aerial helicopter with four horizontal rotors designed in a square configuration capable of locating lost or jeopardized victims, gathering military intelligence, or surveillance. The project team designed a miniaturized quad-rotor able to determine its own attitude through an onboard sensor system. A computer program using formulated control equations and an onboard processing system enables the quad-rotor to fly to a pre-determined position while correcting its attitude, which results in steady level autonomous flight.
