Mathematical model, computer aided design and programming of a multifunctional flying object

The quadrocopter, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), is a type of aerodynamic object using thrust generated by the propellers revolving around the rotor mast. The main areas of focus for complete design and engineering research should be on its stabilization and realization of tasks to be performed during flight. To accomplish these tasks, it is necessary to consider the following stages: modeling of motion dynamics, computer-aided design, programming of the control unit, precise implementation, carefully selected motors and sensors, i.e. a gyroscope, accelerometer, camera, communication module, GPS module, and others. The presented results of research and experiments carried out at Lodz University of Technology in the Department of Automation and Biomechanics take into consideration most of these issues.
