Unmanned autonomous flying helicopter

An autonomous flying helicopter system has been developed. The system is able start, land and fly a model helicopter of the 2 m class in a three-dimensional navigational space as long as it comes with the necessary sensor equipment. The development focused on the hardware prototype development, sensor fusion and control algorithms. One goal was to implement the system on a single embedded microcontroller while being able to use different kinds of sensors.
