Abstract

This study considers a simple velocity-free controller for altitude/attitude regulation for the highly nonlinear model of a quadrotor-type helicopter. Some useful structural properties of the proposed closed-loop system are considered for studying stability when time-delay appears in the feedback loop. Numerical and simulation results demonstrate the impact of the time delays on the system dynamics.
