BIOGRAPHY

Micro Autonomous Air Vehicles [BPN388]
This project considers the design and implementation of a guidance and control system for
small scale autonomous air vehicles, in particular helicopters. A two gram inertial navigation unit
has been designed and built for this purpose, using a three axis angular rate sensor and three axis
accelerometer for trajectory measurements, along with a microprocessor and 2.4 GHz 802.15.4 radio. A
smart IR camera is used to determine localization information. This extremely low mass wireless
enabled sensor mote can be used as a platform for two-fist sized autonomous vehicles, and this system
has been used as a controller for a small off-the-shelf model helicopter with the goal of developing
an autonomous micro air vehicle (MAV).
