This paper discusses the design, modeling, implementation, and testing of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) controller. The controller is based on a single-chip stand-alone embedded system (E-controller). The system uses a sensor pack, Global Positioning System (GPS) and an RF transceiver to monitor and report crucial parameters such as altitude, speed, pitch, roll, and position. An embedded software algorithm has been developed to enable the aerial vehicle accomplish the required autonomy and maintain satisfactory flight operation.
