On March 3, we organized a scientific seminar on “Simple Controller Tuning for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles using Governors “. The scientific seminar was led by Raphael Dyrska, a PhD student at the chair of Automatic Control and Systems Theory, Ruhr Universität Bochum. The scientific seminar was organized in the framework of the FrontSeat project, as part of the seminar series on “Research Seminar on Smart Cybernetics”.

A simple governor-based controller tuning is implemented and tested for the application to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). We show that the governor-based tuning approach enables the high-level tuning of the existing controller of the UAVs by using a single tuning parameter only. We implement the approach on two UAV platforms of different sizes and controller frameworks to prove the versatility of the given approach. The validation is performed with experimental data collected for the UAVs flying in the supervised environment of an indoor flight laboratory.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon under grant no. 101079342 (Fostering Opportunities Towards Slovak Excellence in Advanced Control for Smart Industries).
