Abstract [en]

In the Conceive – Design – Implement - Operate (CDIO) project course in automatic control, an autonomous unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is constructed, utilising an existing radio controlled model aircraft. By adding an inertial sensor that measures acceleration and rotation, together with a Global Positioning System (GPS) sensor, the aim is to construct an accurate positioning system. This is used by an onboard computer to calculate control surface signals to a set of servos in order to follow a predefined way-point trajectory. The project involves 17 students and comprises both positioning, control and hardware design. The main pedagogical goal is for students to apply their theoretical knowledge within a project framework in order to improve important aspects of their engineering skills in a realistic manner.
