Ewoud Smeur commented on Ewoud Smeur's blog post Disturbance Rejection with Incremental Control of Accelerations
"@Julien Thanks for looking into the code! I think you are referring to the attitude control code, where I have the distinction between the simple and full version. Indeed I was using the full version. However, what the video is mainly about is the…"

"Impressive results! I looked at your implementation in paparazzi and I'm guessing this is the full version implemented? Are the results far off by using the simple version with the [p,q,r] rates instead of the four rotor rates?"

"@Ewoud: Ok. Your controller looks great! The PID definetly looks less efficent here. I was just wondering how it would perform in gusty wind with a random pattern. The controller actually has a big effect on energy consumption. A very aggressive…"

"@Ivan No, in my research I usually work with Paparazzi. Nonetheless, the code is not that complex, so it wouldn't take that much effort to make it available for Arducopter. @Charles This was not really a point of concern for this research. My…"

"Cool. Have you considered the power usage of the controller compared to a PID? When flying in open environment, lower controller constants might increase flight time and range."

Disturbance Rejection with Incremental Control of Accelerations

Wind GustsDrones have the potential to perform many useful tasks, such as search and rescue, package delivery and aerial imaging. But in order to perform these tasks in an outdoor environment, the vehicles need to be able to control their position under the influence of wind gusts. This is especially true when flying close to obstacles, as a position error due to a wind gust might result in a collision.Incremental controlAt the…See More

About Me:
I am a PhD student at Delft University of Technology. My research is on the topic of control for hybrid drones (VTOL with forward flight capability).
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am interested in UAV control, especially in new ideas with practical applicability. Also, I like to keep it simple.

Cyclone Hybrid Vehicle (Tailsitter)

Posted on July 19, 2017 at 2:00am 5 Comments





Together, the Dronelab at ENAC in Toulouse and the MAVLab at TU Delft have developed the Cyclone. It is a hybrid drone of the tailsitter type, with just 4 actuators. In the video, we show autonomous flight, ranging…
