Control of drones

Quadrotors are the most popular type of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). They can be achieved from cheap off-the-shelf components due to their simple and robust mechanical design. Furthermore, they are able to hover as well as takeoff and land vertically while still being able to perform agile maneuvers.

Quadrotors are deployed in numerous applications where sensors or payloads need to be moved to locations that are hard to reach or even unreachable for humans or ground robots. Among these applications are inspection of various infrastructure, monitoring and analysis in agriculture, surveillance, transportation, and aerial photography, which, together, form a multi-billion-dollar market.

The research focuses on control methods that makes quadrotors more autonomous and more agile brings the benefit of requiring fewer operators and completing tasks faster.
