Abstract

The design and the initial realization of control on an experimental in-door unmanned autonomous quadrotor helicopter is presented. This is a hierarchical embedded model-based control scheme that is built upon the concept of back-stepping, and is applied on an electric motor-driven quadrotor UAV hardware that is equipped with an embedded on-board computer, inertial sensor unit, as well as facilities that make it suitable to be involved in an in-door positioning system, and wireless digital communication network. This realization forms an important step in the development process of a more advanced realization of an UAV suitable for practical applications; it aims clarification of the control principles, acquiring experience in solving control tasks, and getting skills for the development of further realizations.
