System identification, estimation and control for a cost effective open-source quadcopter
Sa, Inkyu & Corke, Peter (2012) System identification, estimation and control for a cost effective open-source quadcopter. In Papanikolopoulos, Nikos (Ed.) Proceedings of the 2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, IEEE, River Center, Saint Paul, Minnesota, pp. 2202-2209.
This paper describes system identification, estimation and control of translational motion and heading angle for a cost effective open-source quadcopter — the MikroKopter. The dynamics of its built-in sensors, roll and pitch attitude controller, and system latencies are determined and used to design a computationally inexpensive multi-rate velocity estimator that fuses data from the built-in inertial sensors and a low-rate onboard laser range finder. Control is performed using a nested loop structure that is also computationally inexpensive and incorporates different sensors. Experimental results for the estimator and closed-loop positioning are presented and compared with ground truth from a motion capture system.
