Autonomous aerobatic flight of a fixed wing unmanned aerial vehicle
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-03)
This thesis relates to the successful development of a flight control system to perform a range of aerobatic manoeuvres autonomously. The project is the first to try to extend the flight control capabilities of the ...
Presisie landing van 'n onbemande vliegtuig
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-12)
This thesis presents the design of a control system for the autonomous precision landing of an unmanned aerial vehicle aided by an infra red camera for precision position measurements. An optimal kinematics state estimator ...
Autonomous flight of a model aircraft
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2005-03)
The successful development of a conventional flight autopilot for a model aircraft is presented. All aspects of the autopilot design are considered, from modeling to flight tests. A mathematical aircraft model, as a ...
Agressive flight control techniques for a fixed wing unmanned aerial vehicle
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
This thesis investigates aggressive all-attitude flight control systems. These are flight controllers capable of controlling an aircraft at any attitude and will enable the autonomous execution of manoeuvres such as high ...
