Abstract—Bio-inspired methods can provide efficient solutions to perform autonomous landing for Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs). Flying insects such as honeybees perform(More)
In science and engineering there often is a need for the approximation of scattered multi-dimensional data. A class of powerful scattered data ap-proximators are the multivariate simplex B-splines. Multivariate simplex B-splines consist of Bernstein basis polynomials that are defined on a geometrical structure called a triangulation. Multivariate simplex(More)
Goal-finding in an unknown maze is a challenging problem for a Reinforcement Learning agent, because the corresponding state space can be large if not intractable, and the agent does not usually have a model of the environment. Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning has been shown in the past to improve tractability and learning time of complex problems, as(More)
To verify the safety of a dynamic system, one important procedure is to compute its reachable set of states. There are different methods of computing reachable sets, namely interval integration, capture basin, methods involving the minimum time to reach function and level set methods. This work deals with interval integration to compute subpavings to over(More)
This paper proposes a taxonomy of conflict detection and resolution (CD&R) approaches for operating unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in an integrated airspace. Possible approaches for UAVs are surveyed and broken down based on their types of surveillance, coordination, maneuvering, and autonomy. The factors are combined back selectively, with regard(More)
This paper deals with the active fault-tolerant control for quadrotors which are subjected to a total rotor failure. Previous studies assume that the fault has been detected and isolated and then design a fault-tolerant controller. The present paper proposes a complete active fault-tolerant control system which copes with not only fault detection and(More)
The design of unknown-input decoupled observers and filters requires the assumption of an existence condition in the literature. This paper addresses an unknown input filtering problem where the existence condition is not satisfied. Instead of designing a traditional unknown input decoupled filter, a Double-Model Adaptive Estimation approach is extended to(More)
