The goal of this project is to develop an autonomous aerial robot as a testbed of an integrated approach to intelligent systems, intelligent control architectures for unmanned air vehicles, and software-enabled control. The robot would be capable of flying autonomously, recognizing and locating target objects, and performing navigation. A model helicopter is used as the airframe of the robot, which has various flight modes such as hovering, forward/backward flight, sideways flight, vertical climb/descent, etc. This results in a helicopter with unparallelled maneuverability to achieve the task. To develop a suitable control scheme for autonomous flying, a simulation program of the helicopter will be developed.
