Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines is an exposition of models developed to assist in the motion control of various types of mini-aircraft: a€c Planar Vertical Take-off and Landing aircraft; a€c helicopters; a€c quadrotor mini-rotorcraft; a€c other fixed-wing aircraft; a€c blimps. For each of these it propounds: a€c detailed models derived from Euler-Lagrange methods; a€c appropriate nonlinear control strategies and convergence properties; a€c real-time experimental comparisons of the performance of control algorithms; a€c review of the principal sensors, on-board electronics, real-time architecture and communications systems for mini-flying machine control, including discussion of their performance; a€c detailed explanation of the use of the Kalman filter to flying machine localization. To researchers and students in nonlinear control and its applications Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines provides valuable insights to the application of real-time nonlinear techniques in an always challenging area.Available at Altu I†g E., Ostrowski J.
