Drone Simulator in Virtual Reality VR

Drone Simulator in Virtual Reality VR

In the previous lesson, we learned how to create a UGV that can move, grab and release objects in VR. In fact, we learned how to make a robot pick up a box or release a box in virtual reality (VR). robot picking up a box in VR This lesson will explain how to create a drone simulator that allows the drone to move and grab/release an object in virtual reality. Drone Flight Simulator in Virtual Reality VR The contents of the entire course on developing a VR Robotics Simulator are as follows: Introduction to the Course (1/15) Install VR…

Mid-air Reconfigurable Quadcopter

Mid-air Reconfigurable Quadcopter

The High Performance Robotics Lab at the UC Berkley, funded by the Berkeley Fellowship for Graduate Study, and the NSF GRFP, developed a quadcopter that can change its shape mid-flight, operate in four configurations, and has the ability to continue hovering in three of the configurations. Image credit: The High Performance Robotics Lab at the UC Berkley This research can have potential applications in construction, search and rescue missions, and inspections in dangerous environments.

Implementing Dynamics and Control of a Quadrotor in MATLAB

Implementing Dynamics and Control of a Quadrotor in MATLAB

In this post, we will implement the dynamics and control of a quadrotor in MATLAB and Simulink. Stabilizing and tracking controllers are simulated and implemented on Quadcopter. A square trajectory is specified for the tracking controller. The reference of the simulation equations is the paper "Modeling and control of quadcopter" by Teppo Luukkonen. You can download the paper HERE! It has a table of values that we will use for the simulation. Objective: Simulation of Dynamics and Control of a Quadrotor in MATLAB and Simulink The objective is to implement a simulation of the quadcopter dynamics by implementing the equations…
