It would be useful if the arducopter gurus help me to understand the input parameters to NN i.e. the configuration of the copter while in flight, my understanding:
Assumption: desired Roll, Pitch and Yaw to be 0 radians and height H fixed. Not worrying about drift for this example. No external force e.g. wind. Payload might not be at GC. Actuation numbers are deltas + or -
Input:
1. 3 angles: Roll, Pitch and Yaw
2. 4 speeds for 4 motors
3. height
Output
1. 3 actuation numbers for Roll, Pitch and Yaw
2. 4 speeds for 4 motors
3. Thrust actuation number

From Birol the developer for FNNTOOl, I think he is a brilliant person to join us here:
time now = tn
Speed of Motor = Sm ( eg Sm1 Speed of Motor 1)
Delta Roll = Dr = Roll( tn ) - Roll ( desired )
Delta Pitch = Dp= Pitch ( tn ) - Pitch ( desired )
Delta Yaw = Dy= Yaw ( tn ) - Yaw ( desired )
Error Roll = Er = Roll ( desired ) - Roll (tn-1)
Error Pitch = Ep = Pitch ( desired ) - Pitch (tn-1)
Error Yaw = Ey = Yaw ( desired ) - Yaw (tn-1)
Inputs : Dr ,Dp,Dy,Er,Ep,Ey,Sm1,Sm2,Sm3,Sm4
Outputs : Sm1 (tn+1) , Sm2 (tn+1) , Sm3 (tn+1) , Sm4 (tn+1)
Hello Dara,
Look at this document, may be that this will help you.
Neural Networks for Control by Martin T. Hagan, School of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Oklahoma State University
The purpose of this tutorial is to provide a quick overview of neural networks and to explain how they can be used in control systems. We introduce the multilayer perceptron neural network and describe how it can be used for function approximation. The backpropagation algorithm (including its variations) is the principal procedure for training multilayer perceptrons; it is briefly described here.
Good reading,
Jean-Louis
Thank you Sir, it is actually very useful.
I will code the math in Mathematica to model the NN control theory and make up examples. It is much more visual and analytic than C or Python.
I will post some stuff shortly.
Ok so what we know so far is that others have done NN control for UAVs, we suspect we do not need any specialized hardware, and we suspect NN control system for Ardu family is a reality, and perhaps porting some code from here and there might start a nice prototype to test.
I am very happy with this development of events and discussions, it ignites my passion to do something new.
Thank you again
Dara
