A Survey of Autonomous Control for UAV

  title={A Survey of Autonomous Control for UAV},
  author={Hai Chen and Xin-min Wang and Yan Li},
  journal={2009 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Computational Intelligence},
This paper presents the autonomous control for UAV. The autonomous control concept and Autonomous Control Level (ACL) metrics that can measure autonomy of UAVs are introduced. Compared with manned aircraft control task in battlefield, the functions of autonomous UAV system are organized. According to the laws of Increasing Precision with Decreasing Intelligent (IPDI), the architecture of autonomous control for UAV is given. The architecture can be divided into three levels: Execution Level… CONTINUE READING
