Project Type MQP Submission date 2011-04-27 Authors Robert John D'Angelo, ECE Robinson Cooper Levin, RBE URN E-project-042711-122042 Title Design of an Autonomous Quadrotor UAV for Urban Search and Rescue Advisors Cyganski, David, EE Duckworth, R. James, EE Availability unrestricted
Abstract This project entailed design and testing of an indoor quadrotor UAV capable of autonomous take-off, landing, and path finding. The propulsion system produces 1500g of thrust at 46% throttle using 7" propellers, minimizing craft size, but allowing for sufficient payload to carry a LIDAR, a CMOS camera, and rangefinders. These sensors are interfaced to an Overo processor, which sends high-level commands to a low-level flight controller, the HoverflyPro. Flight tests were conducted which demonstrated flight control and sensor operation.
