Embedded flight control based on adaptive sliding mode strategy for a quadrotor micro air vehicle uri icon


  • © 2019 by the authors.The design of an embedded flight controller for a quadrotor micro air vehicle, which is subject to uncertainties and perturbations, is addressed. In order to obtain robustness against bounded uncertainties and disturbances, an adaptive sliding mode controller is proposed. The control adaptive gains allow using only necessary control to satisfy the task, reducing the chattering effect and at the same time reject external perturbations. Furthermore, a stability analysis of the closed-loop system is given. Finally, simulations and experimental results carried out on a commercial micro air vehicle demonstrate the feasibility and advantages of the proposed flight controller.
