Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis describes the design and implementation of a Bluetooth controlled blimp with autonomous capabilities through Dead Reckoning. Reasonable research was conducted on current autonomous systems, wireless communication techniques, and suitable microprocessors that could handle the required processing. Building a remotecontrolled blimp requires a light understanding of mechanics to build the blimp itself and a strong understanding of electronics in order to design the remote-control and built-in computer systems. This thesis will focus on the various blocks necessary to create a remote-controlled, autonomous blimp that does not rely on GPS, all while explaining the design process we faced as well as the final results. Dead Reckoning is used in place of GPS to control the blimp’s navigation. All design decisions are backed up with concrete data and logical conclusions. The end system met the specified requirements and could successfully navigate around large, stationary objects, but further improvements to the Dead Reckoning system are still required.
