Abstract

The main objective of the present paper is to design a mathematical model to estimate the behavior of flying robots with four motors (quadcopters) controlled by three algorithms; P depends on the present errors; I on the accumulation of past errors, and D a prediction of future errors (PID controller design) with simple strategy. In this regard, a governing equation of motion based on Newton Euler’s formularies for rigid body dynamics is presented. In order to design the control algorithm some assumptions are made such as the ignorance of the blade flapping, surrounding fluid velocities. This exclusion of parameters makes the model flexible, simple, and allows the control to be more efficiency and easy to designed without the need of expensive computation. The simulation studies are carried out using MATLAB program.

Keywords: Quadcopters, PID controller, Newton Euler’s Equations, Matlab.
