Product Description/Project Objective Statement
- MAV Family Objective:
- To build a semi-autonomous, tending towards full autonomy, air vehicle that will be used in the future for Multidisciplinary Senior Design and for graduate studies in the college of engineering and the college of imaging science.
- To have a hands on aeronautical project for undergraduate students that is of low cost and simplicity as to be able to be made by hand.
- To provide an incentive for students as well as exposure of engineering at RIT by competing in the more aggressive United States/Europe MAV competition
- P09122 Project Objective:
- To design and build a flight control system for the Micro Aerial Vehicle, that will lead to a fully autonomous system.
Key Business Goals/Project Deliverables
- Make the MAV as autonomous as possible.
- A control system able to stabilize and control the flight of the MAV based on inputs.
- A control system that can be adapted for flight conditions, payloads and platform characteristics.
- A control system that will allow the desired
flight qualities to be achieved.
- Stabilize the platform if unstable of increase damping.
- A fully tested control system capable of integrating to the MAV platform.
- System capable of competing in the 2010 MAV Competition.
Primary Market/Project Opportunities
- The primary market is the MAV team and future projects in order to develop a fully autonomous vehicle.
Secondary Market/Project Opportunities
- Coast Guard
- HAZMAT Teams
- National Weather Service
Assumptions and Constraints
- 22 week time frame
- Size and weight capable of being integrated with the platform.
- Some remote control input if necessary.
- Capable of operating for duration of MAV flight.
- Dr. Kozak
- MAV Team
- Other 2009 MAV projects
