Aerial Robotic 44 . Aerial Robotics

  title={Aerial Robotic 44 . Aerial Robotics},
  author={Eric Feron and Eric N. Johnson},
A wide array of potential applications exist for robots that have the level of mobility offered by flight. The military applications of aerial robotics have been recognized ever since the beginnings of powered flight, and they have already been realized to sometimes spectacular effect in surveillance, targeting, and even strike missions. The range of civilian applications is even greater and includes remote sensing, disaster response, image acquisition, surveillance, transportation, and… 



Design, construction and control of a large quadrotor micro air vehicle

A design for a complete micro air-vehicle thruster that combines fixed-pitch small-scale rotors and embedded control that produces a mechanically simple, high-performance thruster with high reliability is developed.

A Fully Autonomous Indoor Quadrotor

This paper presents a general navigation system that enables a small-sized quadrotor system to autonomously operate in indoor environments and systematically extend and adapt techniques that have been successfully applied on ground robots.

Linear Programming and Language Processing for Human-Unmanned Aerial-Vehicle Team Missions

This paper presents a manned-vehicle/unmanned-aerial-vehicle (UAV) mission system that enables an operator in a manned aircraft to issue mission level commands to an autonomous aircraft in real time.

Towards Intelligent Miniature Flying Robots

This paper derives a nonlinear dynamics simulation model, performs a simulation with a PD test controller and test successfully the robot in a real flight, confident that “OS4” is a significant progress towards intelligent miniature quadrotors.

Maneuver-based motion planning for nonlinear systems with symmetries

An approach for the efficient solution of motion-planning problems for time-invariant dynamical control systems with symmetries, such as mobile robots and autonomous vehicles, under a variety of differential and algebraic constraints on the state and on the control input.

A Practical Visual Servo Control for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

An image-based visual servo control is presented for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) capable of stationary or quasi-stationary flight with the camera mounted onboard the vehicle using control Lyapunov function design techniques.

Autonomous obstacle avoidance and maneuvering on a vision-guided MAV using on-board processing

We present a novel stereo-based obstacle avoidance system on a vision-guided micro air vehicle (MAV) that is capable of fully autonomous maneuvers in unknown and dynamic environments. All algorithms

The Stanford testbed of autonomous rotorcraft for multi agent control (STARMAC)

The design and development of a miniature autonomous waypoint tracker flight control system, and the creation of a multi-vehicle platform for experimentation and validation of multi-agent control algorithms are outlined.

PIXHAWK: A micro aerial vehicle design for autonomous flight using onboard computer vision

The main contribution is a MAV system that is able to run both the vision-based flight control and stereo-vision-based obstacle detection parallelly on an embedded computer onboard the MAV.

Adaptive Image-Based Visual Servoing for an Underactuated Quadrotor System

The results confirm that the target image is successfully placed at the desired position of the image plane and the quadrotor state variables are properly regulated, showing robustness in the presence of sensor noise, parametric uncertainty, and vibration from motors.
