PX4 Autopilot Quadrotor GPS Flight


Damian Aregger

Semester Thesis, HS12 (10212)

This Semester thesis focuses on the development of an autonomous position controller for quadrotor outdoor navigation with the PX4 Autopilot System1 at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich. In previous work [1] all of the quadrotor hardware was built and a suitable Global Positioning System receiver was evaluated. The main aspects of this work are the development of an position and velocity estimator as well as an appropriate controller. The ultimate goal of the project called for a stepwise evolution of the design process. Launched by different indoor laboratory test setups the algorithms were refined towards the real world conditions and finally tested there. The results of this progress are shown and a conclusion with further enhancement options is drawn.
