Nonlinear automatic landing control of unmanned aerial vehicles on moving platforms via a 3D laser radar
This paper presents a motion tracking and control system for automatically landing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) on an oscillating platform using Laser Radar (LADAR) observations. The system itself is assumed to be mounted ...
Additive manufacturing in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs): Challenges and potential
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are gaining popularity due to their application in military, private and public sector, especially being attractive for fields where human operator is not required. Light-weight UAVs are more ...
Ground Stereo Vision-based Navigation for Autonomous Take-off and Landing of UAVs: A Chan-Vese Model Approach
This article aims at flying target detection and localization of a fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) autonomous take-off and landing within Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)-denied environments. A Chan-Vese ...
Tracking of a moving ground target by a quadrotor using a backstepping approach based on a full state cascaded dynamics
In this paper, a tracking controller is formulated for a quadrotor to track a moving ground target. The quadrotor exhibits distinct hierarchical dynamics that allows its position to be controlled by its attitude. This ...
