In this paper we address the stabilization of the attitude and position of a birotor miniUAV to perform autonomous flight. For this purpose, we have implemented a Kalman-based sensor fusion between inertial sensors (gyros-accelerometers) and the optical flow (OF) provided by the vehicle. This fusion algorithm extracts the translational-OF (TOF) component(More)
This paper describes the modeling, control and hardware implementation of an experimental tilt-rotor aircraft. This vehicle combines the high-speed cruise capabilities of a conventional airplane with the hovering capabilities of a helicopter by tilting their four rotors. Changing between cruise and hover flight modes in mid-air is referred to transition.(More)
