  1. 1. Analysis of autonomous flight algorithms for an unmanned aerial vehicle

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Mattias Sjöberg; [2018]
    Keywords : UAV; SLAM; Split-And-Merge; APFA; V-REP; Inverse dynamics; FBLC; EKF;

    Abstract : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) have been heavily studied in the past decade, where autonomous flights have been a popular subject. More complex applications have led to higher requirements on the autonomous flight algorithms and the absence of performance data complicates the selection of what algorithm to use for various applications.

    Keywords : UAV; drone; CPS; multicopter;

    Abstract : The 2018 CPS-VO challenge is a competition focusing on the development of a drone which has the ability to search a area for a lost drone and recover it to a specific destination, all this is to be done autonomous. To participate in the challenge three thesis projects was done by three different teams. READ MORE

  3. 3. Path Planning with Weighted Wall Regions using OctoMap

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Bergström Jerker; [2018]
    Keywords : UAV; path planning; A*; wall weights;

    Abstract : In the work of the Control Engineering research group of the Department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineering, Signals and systems at Luleå University of Technology a need had arisen for a path planning algorithm. The ongoing research with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles(UAVs) had so far been done with any complicated paths being created manually with waypoints set by the uses. READ MORE

  4. 4. Motion Planning and Controlof Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI); KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Vilhelm Dinevik; Paula Carbo; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The core of this project focuses on how to makeaerial vehicles fly autonomously from an initial position to agoal. This is done by making a mathematical model for the UAV,a brief study of the sensors needed to estimate the UAVs state,then designing an LQR controller for the trajectory trackingand finally using an artificial potential field function for thenavigation.

  5. 5. Safe Navigation of a Tele-operated Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Daniel Duberg; [2018]
    Keywords : unmanned aerial vehicle; safe navigation; tele-operated; robotics; drones; UAV; indoor; collision avoidance; human-UAV interface; interface; human-robot interface; computer science;

    Abstract : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can navigate in indoor environments and through environments that are hazardous or hard to reach for humans. This makes them suitable for use in search and rescue missions and by emergency response and law enforcement to increase situational awareness. READ MORE
