Given significant mobility advantages, UAVs have access to many locations that would be impossible for an unmanned ground vehicle to reach, but UAV research has historically focused on avoiding interactions with the environment. Recent advances in UAV size to payload and manipulator weight to payload ratios suggest the possibility of integration in the near future, opening the door to UAVs that can interact with their environment by manipulating objects. Therefore, we seek to investigate and… Expand

TLDR
This paper describes an approach to coordinate the redundant degrees of freedom of an aerial manipulation system that will drive the UAV to a position that allows the manipulator to assume a joint-space configuration that maximizes reachability, thus facilitating the arm's ability to compensate for undesired UAV motions without the need for an external pose estimation system.
