Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the Queensland University of Technology Uninhabited Airborne Vehicle (QUAV) Project. The undergraduate student project focuses on the development of a low-cost UAV for civilian airspace integration trials and as a test platform for research being conducted by the Airborne Avionics Research Group (AARG).This paper presents an overview of the avionics architecture and airworthiness framework developed and provides a discussion on the challenges to low-cost UAV development. Results from flight testing and the implementation of the airworthiness framework are presented as are design experiences such as the shift to Real-time Operating Systems (RTOS) and utilisation of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components for rapid prototyping.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
