UAV lab

The UAV Research Group is focused on development and implementation of a low-cost, open source small Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV) flight research facility. The goal of this facility is to support research activities within the department including control, navigation and guidance algorithms, embedded fault detection methods, and system identification tools. The system is built mostly out of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components to minimize the overall material and development costs. The entire architecture, which includes a MATLAB/Simulink nonlinear simulation, is open and available to any researchers or organizations who wish to collaborate on the development or application of the UAV capabilities (http://www.uav.aem.umn.edu). In addition to the researchers from AEM department, the UAV Research Group is collaborating with researchers at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in Hungary.
