    Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are playing increasingly important roles on the battlefield and in our everyday lives. In military missions, they perform intelligence gathering, surveillance, and reconnaissance. In the civilian arena, UAVs provide climate monitoring [1], [2]; pipeline inspection [3]; farm management [4], and pollution monitoring [5]. Some enterprising realtors have even used them ...

    This article described a control law for stabilizing the vertical motion of a flapping-wing MAV and developed a system architecture that is potentially beneficial in realizing the autonomous flight of flapping-wing MAVs fewer than 10 g. The article began with a brief introduction to the Golden Snitch, including its development history and the development of the overall system. The vertical dynamic... View full abstract»

    Worldwide, there has been growing interest in the use of autonomous vehicles to execute missions of increasing complexity without constant supervision of human operators. A key enabling element for the execution of such missions is the availability of advanced systems for motion control of autonomous vehicles. Usually, the problems of motion control for a single autonomous vehicle are roughly clas... View full abstract»

    There is a growing demand for unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) with combat capabilities in battlefield scenarios [1]. Whether this capability is for evasive maneuvers or for flying attack patterns, unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAVs) are expected to operate in dense and often threatening environments that require aggressive trajectory planning and controls [1]. These trajectories often require the us... View full abstract»

    The ability of autonomous systems to make complex decisions is becoming an increasingly commonplace requirement for many cooperative control operations, including the management of teams of robots such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Central to this research is the requirement to optimize the vehicle decisions, such as route planning and allocation of team resources, while operating in a dynami... View full abstract»
