In this paper, we present the design and implementation of an autonomous flight control law for a small-scale unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) helicopter. The approach is decentralized in nature by incorporating a newly developed nonlinear control technique, namely the composite nonlinear feedback control, together with dynamic inversion. The overall control(More)
—We present in this paper the modeling and flight-control-system design for the yaw channel of an unmanned-aerial-vehicle (UAV) helicopter using a newly developed composite nonlinear feedback (CNF)-control technique. The CNF-control method has been proven to be capable of yielding a fast transient response with no or very minimal overshoot in tracking a(More)
Keywords: Hardware-in-the-loop simulation UAV Helicopter Flight control a b s t r a c t We present in the paper the design of a hardware-in-the-loop simulation framework and its actual implementation on our custom constructed unmanned-aerial-vehicle (UAV) helicopter systems. Real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation is one of the most effective methods for(More)
In this paper, we present a comprehensive design for a fully functional unmanned rotorcraft system: GremLion. GremLion is a new small-scale unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) concept using two contra-rotating rotors and one cyclic swash-plate. It can fit within a rucksack and be easily carried by a single person. GremLion is developed with all necessary avionics(More)
In this paper, we present an unmanned system design methodology for a fully functional unmanned rotorcraft system: GremLion, developed with all necessary avionics and a ground control station. It has been employed to participate in the 2012 UAVForge competition. The proposed design methodology consists of hardware construction, software development, dynamic(More)
