About Me

I've always been inspired by flying vehicles and, found myself passionated about the science behind flying and building and controlling machines that can fly. Whether it is an airplane or an UAV or MAV. During my education and also after my graduation, I've had pretty good chances to get involved in designing and building a few numbers of UAVs and drones with diverse applications. My field of interests and experience covers automation, control, design, dynamic simulation, system modeling and implemation of these machines and other similar robots. In this website, you can find some projects which I've had the opportunity to be a part of them that helped me gain more experience and knowledge in mentioned fields. For further information please send me a message in contact section.

Paper

Cooperative Aerial Payload Transportation Using Two Quadrotors


A. Rajaeizadeh, A. Naghash, and A. Mohamadifard.
In International Micro Air Vehicle Conference and Flight Competition 2017, Toulouse, France, 2017, p. 73-80.

  • ABSTRACT

In this paper, we consider the problem of con- trolling multiple quadrotors fastened to a payload and cooperatively transport it in 3 dimensions. We model the quadrotors as a group rigidly attached to a payload. Then we develop the equations of motion of this rigid system. We propose a rigid-body formation system controller based on LQR method as well as a Paparazzi-based guidance scheme for the payload mission trajectory. Also a PD controller is developed and its results are compared with the main controller's results. A simulation study with two quadrotors cooperatively stabilizing, and transporting a payload along two differ- ent desired three-dimensional trajectories is presented.
