A key requirement for effective control of quadrotor vehicles is estimation of both attitude and linear velocity. Recent work has demonstrated that it is possible to measure horizontal velocities of a quadrotor vehicle from strap-down ac-celerometers along with a system model. In this paper we extend this to full body-fixed-frame velocity measurement by exploiting recent work in aerodynamic modeling of rotor performance and measurements of mechanical power supplied to the rotor hub. We use...[Show more]
