This paper describes the design of fault diagnosis and active fault tolerant control schemes that can be developed for nonlinear systems. The methodology is based on a fault detection and diagnosis procedure relying on adaptive filters designed via the nonlinear geometric approach, which allows obtaining the disturbance de-coupling property. The controller(More)
This work proposes a feedback control strategy to let the dynamics of an under-actuated Vertical TakeOff and Landing (VTOL) aerial vehicle to track a desired trajectory thanks to an adaptive robust compensation of the aerodynamic disturbances. The novelty of the proposed approach consists in employing an aerodynamic disturbance observer derived using the(More)
