Abstract

In general, Quad copter are very much difficult to control by only manual control without using any sensors. So, if we use some specific motion sensors and apply some algorithms to the values read from these sensors, the Quad copter can itself balance its motion. If we use this technique to control the Quad copter, it can then be called as "Autonomous”. The payload of our Quad copter design includes a camera and telemetry that will allow us to watch live video from the Quad copter on a laptop that is located up to 400 m away. The continuation of work on the Quad copter to improve performance and controllability will be continued. Our project has verified that it is possible to build a small-scale Quad copter that could be used for both military and commercial use. These constraints have forced compromise in components selected and methods used for prototype development. Our team’s Quad copter prototype is a very limited version of what could be created in a production facility using more advanced technology. We used smartphone as remote control device. Currently our Quad copter has achieved stability to flight as well as autonomous altitude hold. We are working on our software so that we can achieve better controllable flight. It is possible to produce a small scale UAV that performs functions of interest to the military as well as commercial/industrial applications.
