Develop | Control | Fly
Our 3-week program aims at providing you key concepts about the flying equation system and about how to build and control drones with a robotic arm. First, with the expertise of our team, you will learn how to design a robot using one of
the most used robotic environments: Robot Operating System. Second, you will build, stabilize, and make a real bicopter fly.
The cultural fun is garanteed by the interactive visits and intercultural workshops all along the 3-week program.
Week #1: INTRODUCTION TO DRONES
➢ What is a drone?
➢ The control Types of drones (according to applications)
➢ The control design problem
➢ The orientation estimation problem
Week #2: MULTI-ROTOR SYSTEMS
➢ Quadrotor drone
➢ Quadrotor modeling and control
➢ Control of the orientation
Week #3: FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE
▪ Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)
▪ Ultrasonic sensors
▪ Topics and services
▪ Defining controlling the robotic arm
▪ Attach the robotic arm to a drone
▪ Control the drone using ROS
