Guidance, Navigation and control of MAEU-01 UAV using MEMS inertial sensors
- Applying Micro Electro-mechanical Systems (MEMS) inertial sensors for the Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC) of an autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAY) is an extremely challenging area. This paper presents a practical approach of applying an Inertial Navigation System (INS) using MEMS inertial sensors, Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, Magnetometer and Barometer for the GNC. The INS/GPS/Mag/Baro integrated navigation loop provides continuous and reliable navigation solutions to the guidance and flight control loop. The guidance loop computes the guidance demands from the current UAV states to satisfy mission requirements. The flight control loop generates actuator control signals to transports the UAV to the desired location. The whole GNC algorithm was implemented within an embedded flight control computer.
