Synopsis

Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines is an exposition of models developed to assist in the motion control of various types of mini-aircraft:

* Planar Vertical Take-off and Landing aircraft;

* helicopters;

* quadrotor mini-rotorcraft;

* other fixed-wing aircraft;

* blimps.

For each of these it propounds:

* detailed models derived from Euler-Lagrange methods;

* appropriate nonlinear control strategies and convergence properties;

* real-time experimental comparisons of the performance of control algorithms;

* review of the principal sensors, on-board electronics, real-time architecture and communications systems for mini-flying machine control, including discussion of their performance;

* detailed explanation of the use of the Kalman filter to flying machine localization.

To researchers and students in nonlinear control and its applications Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines provides valuable insights to the application of real-time nonlinear techniques in an always challenging area.

Rogelio Lozano has worked in worked at a number of institutions with a high reputation for control engineering - the University of Newcastle in Australia, Nasa's Langley Research Center and now as CNRS Research Director at the University of Compiegne. He is a very experienced author in the control field being an associate editor of both Automatica and International Journal of Adaptive Control and Signal Processing. He is the co-author of 3 previous titles for Springer all of them in the Communications and Control Engineering series: Landau, I.D., Lozano, R. and M'Saad, M. Adaptive Control (1997) 3-540-76187-X Lozano, R., Brogliato, B., Egeland, O. and Maschke, B. Dissipative Systems Analysis and Control (1999) 1-85233-285-9 Fantoni, I. and Lozano, R.
