Abstract or Summary
  • Creating intelligent robotics is at the cutting edge of technology. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are of particular interest for surveillance applications. UAVs have the potential to provide quick and cheap aerial data that would be difficult to obtain by conventional means. UAVs also have the ability to navigate without being hampered by ground terrain, which presents an enormous advantage over land-based, autonomous vehicles. Achieving autonomy, especially in small-scale aircraft, continues to be a difficult task. A basic design for an autonomous helicopter based on the DraganFly Innovations DraganFlyer V Ti is explored. The design, implementation, and results of the undergraduate engineering project, called the AeroBot, will be analyzed with the purpose of providing a foundation for future projects relating to this topic. The concept behind achieving autonomy through sensor integration is explored, followed by a breakdown of the AeroBot design, and finally an investigation into the results of the project. The information should provide practical insight into the construction of an autonomous, aerial vehicle for future endeavors in this field of engineering.
