Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines

Springer Science & Business Media, 30 Μαρ 2006 - 252 σελίδες

Problems in the motion control of aircraft are of perennial interest to the control engineer as they tend to be of complex and nonlinear nature.

Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines is an exposition of models developed for various types of mini-aircraft:

  • planar Vertical Take-off and Landing aircraft;
  • helicopters;
  • quadrotor mini-rotorcraft;
  • other fixed-wing aircraft;
  • blimps;

for each of which it propounds:

  • detailed models derived from Euler-Lagrange methods;
  • appropriate nonlinear control strategies and convergence properties;
  • real-time experimental comparisons of the performance of control algorithms;
  • review of the principal sensors, on-board electronics, real-time architecture and communications systems for mini-flying machine control, including discussion of their performance;
  • detailed explanation of the use of the Kalman filter to flying machine localization.

To researchers and students in nonlinear control and its applications Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines provides valuable insights to the application of real-time nonlinear techniques in an always challenging area.

Rogelio Lozano has worked in worked at a number of institutions with a high reputation for control engineering – the University of Newcastle in Australia, Nasa’s Langley Research Center and now as CNRS Research Director at the University of Compiègne. He is a very experienced author in the control field being an associate editor of both Automatica and International Journal of Adaptive Control and Signal Processing. He is the co-author of 3 previous titles for Springer all of them in the Communications and Control Engineering series:
