  1. 1. Fuzzy Control for an Unmanned Helicopter

    University dissertation from Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Bourhane Kadmiry; Dimiter Driankov; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Helicopter; Robust control; Fuzzy gain scheduling; Gradient descent method; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : The overall objective of the Wallenberg Laboratory for Information Technology and Autonomous Systems (WITAS) at Linköping University is the development of an intelligent command and control system, containing vision sensors, which supports the operation of a unmanned air vehicle (UAV) in both semi- and full-autonomy modes. One of the UAV platforms of choice is the APID-MK3 unmanned helicopter, by Scandicraft Systems AB. READ MORE

  2. 2. The spectral reflectance of coniferous tree stands and of barley influenced by stress : an analysis of field measured spectral data

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Johan Kleman; [1985]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; spectral reflectance; field measurement; middle infrared; crops; fertilisation; irrigation; coniferous forest; helicopter; measuring geometry;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the spectral signatures for vegetation. Knowledge about the spectral characteristics of different vegetation types is imperative for an efficient use of existing remote sensing systems, and also to provide guidelines for sensor development. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Use of Case-Based Reasoning in a Human-Robot Dialog System

    University dissertation from Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Karolina Eliasson; Erik Sandewall; Jan Alexandersson; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dialog manager; machine learning; case-based reasoning; case-based planning; helicopter; natural language; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap Datalogi;

    Abstract : As long as there have been computers, one goal has been to be able to communicate with them using natural language. It has turned out to be very hard to implement a dialog system that performs as well as a human being in an unrestricted domain, hence most dialog systems today work in small, restricted domains where the permitted dialog is fully controlled by the system.

  4. 4. Prediction as a Knowledge Representation Problem A Case Study in Model Design

    University dissertation from Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Patrik Haslum; Patrick Doherty; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; WITAS; Unmanned irial Vehicle UAV ; helicopter; raffic surveillance; remote photogrammetry; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : The WITAS project aims to develop technologies to enable an Unmanned Airial Vehicle (UAV) to operate autonomously and intelligently, in applications such as traffic surveillance and remote photogrammetry. Many of the necessary control and reasoning tasks, e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Navigation Functionalities for an Autonomous UAV Helicopter

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Gianpaolo Conte; Patrick Doherty; Marconi Lorenzo; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Unmanned Aerial Vehicle; Control System; Path Following; Path Planning; Sensor Fusion; Vision Based Landing; Kalman Filter; Real-Time; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis was written during the WITAS UAV Project where one of the goals has been the development of a software/hardware architecture for an unmanned autonomous helicopter, in addition to autonomous functionalities required for complex mission scenarios. The algorithms developed here have been tested on an unmanned helicopter platform developed by Yamaha Motor Company called the RMAX. READ MORE
