  journal={2009 American Control Conference},
This paper focuses on the design and validation of a control framework for a Ducted-Fan Miniature Aerial Vehicle (MAV) realized by the University of Bologna in order to pursuit simple high level operations like surveillance, video capture, etc. After a description of the aircraft prototype and the nonlinear control law, two different control scenarios are then addressed, the first one characterized by a continuous interaction with the human operator (denoted as Remotely Operated Vehicle Mode… CONTINUE READING
