Modelling and control of a large quadrotor robot

Pounds, P; Mahony, Robert; Corke, Peter


Typical quadrotor aerial robots used in research weigh <3kg and carry payloads measured in hundreds of grams. Several obstacles in design and control must be overcome to cater for expected industry demands that push the boundaries of existing quadrotor performance. The X-4 Flyer, a 4. kg quadrotor with a 1. kg payload, is intended to be prototypical of useful commercial quadrotors. The custom-built craft uses tuned plant dynamics with an onboard embedded attitude controller to stabilise flight....[Show more]
