|Abstract||The category of "Laboratory Courses, Projects, Seminars" includes courses and laboratories in various formats designed to impart practical knowledge and skills. Moreover, these classes encourage independent experimentation and design, allow for explorative learning and teach the methodology of project work.|
|Objective||The objective of this P&S is to make a real-world quad-rotor fly autonomously by applying the control and estimation theory taught in class.|
Details of this P&S course can be found at: http://www.dfall.ethz.ch/pands.php
A video showing highlights from HS2018 can be see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEg-XHSXd58
In the first half of the P&S, we will introduce the physical model for a quad-rotor and use this to apply the control and estimation techniques that are taught in the 5th semester in the Control System 1 class. The students will then create their own control function for a quad-rotor and test these in simulation. The second half of the course will involve the students implementing the control and estimation algorithms they design in the real-world on our fleet of nano-quad-rotors. Once stable flight is achieved, the students will have the freedom to perform tasks with the quad-rotor. By implementing the control and estimation algorithms on a real-quadcopter, the students will gain experience with how decisions in the modelling and design stage affect real-world performance.
Students must be in the 6th semester.
The first class will be Monday, September 21 for all students.
Classes will then occur every second week. The students will be split into two groups and the classes for each group will occur on alternating weeks.
It is preferable to be taking the Control Systems 1 (CS1) course but not mandatory. Those students who are not taking CS1 will need to complete some extra reading to understand some aspects of this P&S.
Due to COVID-19, the course will be offered in an online setting with classes being held over Zoom. The students will be able to take a real-world quad-rotor to their homes in order to implement the control and estimation algorithms taught in the course.
