Nonlinear Kalman Filter for Multi-Sensor Navigation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle covers state estimation development approaches for Mini-UAV. The book focuses on Kalman filtering technics for UAV design, proposing a new design methodology and case study related to inertial navigation systems for drones. Both simulation and real experiment results are presented, thus showing new and promising perspectives.
- Gives a state estimation development approach for mini-UAVs
- Explains Kalman filtering techniques
- Introduce a new design method for unmanned aerial vehicles
- Introduce cases relating to the inertial navigation system of drones
Jean-Philippe Condomines is Assistant Professor in Guidance Navigation and Control in the UAV team at the French National Civil Aviation University (ENAC), in Toulouse, France, where he contributes to the development of an open source pilot for the Paparazzi project. He received in 2015 his Ph.D. in Automatic Control from the Higher Institute of Aeronautics and Space (ISAE), in Toulouse, France.
