Project Description and Objectives


This project focuses on the research of autonomous quadrotor landing on moving platforms. The autonomous landing of the quadrotors on moving platform is one of the recent research hotspots. Due to underactuation of the quadrotor dynamical system and difficulties of estimating the states of the quadrotor, this problem remains a challenge to be further investigated. The project plan to use the down-facing camera and IMU to accurately estimate the states of the quadrotor. At the same time, the down-facing camera is also used to estimate and predict the motion states of the moving landing platform. Taking dynamical underactuation as well as visibility issue into account, the project can optimize landing trajectory planning work, and thus realize the task of autonomous quadrotor landing performance.
