Quadcopter control approaches and performance analysis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This article presents the kinematic and dynamic model of a X8 quadcopter, as well as control methodologies based on the PID controller and Sliding Mode Controller. The main contributions are centered on the controllers tuning based on particle swarm optimization algorithm and on the controllers performance comparison for nominal operation and for faulty situations. In order to show the overall performance, simulation results for trajectory and orientation tracking control are presented.
