    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.
