"Update for Future Viewers of this thread: The current release of Simulink has the Arduino Support Package built into it which means you don't need to grab the files from the File Exchange for basic functionality. All you need to do is MATLAB…"

"Hi William and hi all, I think you can get even more accurate results using a similar strategy but working in the Frequency Domain. Here is what you can do (without so much effort): 1. Conduct experiments where you give inputs that correspond to a…"

"@ Hyon_Lim I have experimentally implemented MPC in Quadrotors. You are right about the computational complexity but this is something that can be accomplished using model embedded CPUs.    @ James Goppert I'll send you some articles…"

"LQG is a linear controller and assumes that all states can be estimated through a LINEAR observer. On the contrary all quadrotors (and MAVs genearally) use Nonlinear Kalman Filters (mainly EKF). So do you think that designing - experimentally…"

"So we can conclude that there is a meaning on this approach. Let's go a step ahead. What type of MAV do you think is the most appropriate? What type of rotorcraft? With what sensors and based on what MCU?"

Wireless sensor network control Drones?

Posted on May 11, 2010 at 2:43am 7 Comments

Hello to community!

It is a great fact that UAVs tend to miniaturization. Despite the high technology advances on microprocessors and embedded systems it is clear that only simple control laws can be implemented into Miniature Autonomous Vehicles. Note that i am not talking for rf manned control but for fully autonomous solutions. So what about Wireless Sensor Network control for Drones? It is an idea implemented widely in ground robots. The main approach is to implement on-board only… Continue

Interfacing MATLAB and Arduino

Posted on December 1, 2009 at 7:56am 9 Comments

Hi friends!

I have just found and tested a Blockset that interfaces MATLAB/SIMULINK and Arduino. You may find this at:


I highly suggest this program since it offers rapid prototyping capabilities to the famous and cheap arduino. The guys have build a block that interfaces with the Real Time Workshop of… Continue
