Abstract

The control design of an unmanned Tilt Tri-Rotor aerial vehicle is the subject of the present article. Tilt-Rotor UAVs are well-known for their capabilities in performing well both as rotorcrafts as well as fixed-wing aerial vehicles. This makes them suitable for missions requiring the speed and flight endurance of a fixed-wing vehicle design as well as the vertical take-off and landing and aggressive manoeuvring capabilities of a helicopter. The work presented consists of the Tilt Tri-Rotor vehicle design, a presentation of the derived model based on the system's nonlinear dynamics and the controller design based on the extracted model's characteristics.
