Description

Design of Control laws and State Observers for Fixed-wing UAVs provides readers with modeling techniques, simulations, and results from real-time experiments using linear and nonlinear controllers and state observers. The book starts with an overview of the history of UAVs and the equations of motion applied to them. Following chapters analyze linear and nonlinear controllers, state observers, and the book concludes with a chapter discussing testbed development and experimental results, equipping readers with the knowledge they need to conduct their own stable UAV flights whether in simulation or real-time.

Key Features

  • Presents aerodynamic models for fixed-wing UAVs that can be used to design control laws and state observers
  • Applies linear and nonlinear control theories and state observers to fixed-wing UAVs
  • Provides real-time flight and simulation test results of fixed-wing UAVs with linear and nonlinear controllers
  • Outlines a testbed that can be adapted by readers to suit their specific needs

Readership
