Aeronautical Engineering Project On Vision and Control for an Autonomous Flying Vehicle

Title: Biologically Inspired Vision and Control for an Autonomous Flying Vehicle
Project Summary: A closed-loop simulation of the Eagle helicopter has been developed using SIMULINK. The model incorporates realistic sensor models, state estimation and control. In simulation, a position control loop scheme using PID control with an attitude feedback inner loop has been shown to be a practical means of controlling the helicopter. The simulation will be used in the following chapters to demonstrate the feasibility of various sensing and control schemes.
