Design and Synthesis of a Hierarchical Hybrid Controller for Quadrotor Navigation

Abstract There has been exciting progress in the area of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) in the last decade, especially for quadrotors due to their nature of easy manipulation and simple structure. A lot of research has been done on achieving autonomous and robust control for quadrotors. Recently researchers have been utilizing linear temporal logic as mission specification language for robot motion planning due to its expressiveness and scalability. Several algorithms have been proposed to achieve autonomous temporal logic planning. Also, several frameworks are designed to compose those discrete planners and continuous controllers to make sure the actual trajectory also satisfies the mission specification. However, most of these works use first-orde... (more)
