Optimization of Commercially Off the Shelf (COTS) Electric Propulsion System for Low Speed Fuel Cell UAV
Fuel cell technology offers higher energy density than any other onboard electric power source. However, despite its high energy content per unit mass, the fuel cell is lacking in power density ratio compared to Lithium-Polymer ...
Auto Takeoff and Precision Landing using Integrated GPS/INS/Optical Flow Solution
Auto takeoff and landing has been considered as the most challenging part in performing a flight with a high degree of autonomy. Hence, many researchers have addressed the problem of developing a precise auto takeoff and ...
Non-Linear Modeling and Control of Unmanned Air Vehicle
The aim of this thesis is to design and simulate a Dynamic Inversion based autopilot for a fixed wing aircraft. The autopilot provides the aircraft motion stability by commanding the different aircraft control surfaces and ...
AUS-UAV HILS Setup of Dynamic Flight Path Planning
My research will utilize the existing UAV test-bed consisting of the TRI-60 RC airplane, the Avionics Unit, the embedded controller system, and the Ground Station to test minimum time flight path algorithms and mission ...
Mazari UAV Adaptive Autopilot System Design and Implementation
Autonomous unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) research started at AUS in 2005. Linear and nonlinear aircraft models and system identification of the aircraft system were developed to design flight control laws. Proportional-i ...
