Abstract:This paper deals with leader-following fonnation control and heading synchronization for a group of quad copters. Unlike most of the existing works that involve a complex design of nonlinear formation and heading control laws for quadcopters, this work proposes a simple linear law especially for quadcopters in leader-following formation. In fact, the quadcopter dynamics involves state variables being coupled nonlinearly. However, it is shown that the dynamics can be treated as a linear system via a feedback li… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
