Attitude control for a quadrotor UAV using adaptive fuzzy backstepping

  title={Attitude control for a quadrotor UAV using adaptive fuzzy backstepping},
  author={Kai Zhao},
With improvements on automation, computer, electronics and other technologies, applications of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have expanded from pure military field to civilian areas. As a multirotor aircraft, a quadrotor UAV has the advantages of simple structure, small size, high manoeuvrability, etc. On the basis of summarizing the current research situation of the quadrotor UAV, a deep research has been conducted on the attitude control system of the quadrotor UAV and two controllers are…
