Minimal Models to Capture the Dynamics of a Rotary Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Choi, R.L.W.; Hann, C.E.; Chen, X. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2014)This paper presents a method for characterising the primary dynamics of a rotary unmanned aerial vehicle. Based on first principles and basic aerodynamics, a mathematical model which explains the rigid body dynamics of a ...
Modelling and Model Based Control Design For Rotorcraft Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Choi, Rejina Ling Wei (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2014)Designing high performance control of rotorcraft unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) requires a mathematical model that describes the dynamics of the vehicle. The model is derived from first principle modelling, such as rigid-body ...
GNSS Based Attitude Determination for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Pinchin, James Thomas (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)This thesis is concerned with determining the orientation of small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles(UAVs). To make commercial use of these aircraft in aerial surveying markets their attitude needs to be determined accurately and ...
