The goal of this research is to design, construct, and demonstrate a model-sized vertical take-off and landing aircraft using a quadrotor configuration. The quadrotor will be capable of both way-point guided autonomous and remote-controlled flight, and will possess an onboard control system with power supply. Part of the research includes mathematical modeling and simulation of the quadrotor motion and stability control system using MATLAB® Simulink® Toolbox. In addition to providing input to the control system, onboard sensors will also collect environmental data, such as altitude, speed, GPS position, and temperature, and transfer it to a base-station via a wireless mess sensor network. Real-time video will also be transferred from an onboard camera. The quadrotor uses commercially available components, including brushless DC motors, and sensors. Sensor input and control is implemented using the open source Arduino Mega 2560 microcontroller and programming environment.
