  • Published 2012
  • Engineering
This paper constructs a relationship between attitude and translational movement of a quadrotor, and presents a PD logic tracking control design algorithm capable of not only stabilizing attitude but also tracking a desired trajectory accurately. In contrast to conventional flight control systems, the artificial inner/outer-loop structure is eliminated via using a third-order time optimal tracking-differentiator. Simulation results demonstrate a better performance than that of conventional ones…
