Robotic Airships

Airships are a favorable type of flying vehicles when it comes to automatic control. They continue operation even if their control system fails for a short time. They remain in the air due to the buoyant force. On the other hand, an airship as a control plant has a number of features that should considered during the synthesis of control laws.

Our institute has completed seven projects creating control systems for airships of various designs in collaboration with the leading enterprises of Europe and China.

Robotic Helicopter

The helicopter control task is complicated. This holds back their civil and military applications. At the same time, helicopters are capable of solving a wide spectrum of tasks impossible for other types of flying vehicles.

In our institute the researchers have developed a generalized nonlinear mathematical model of a helicopter and a method of adaptive position-path control for a robotic single-rotor helicopter with a tail rotor, and a design method for creation of a software-hardware test bench for modeling the dynamics of helicopter-type flying vehicles.

Intelligent planning and group control of multicopters

The problem of intelligent path planning and group control of multicopters is being solved. It serves as a test for checking the results of the scientific research supported the grant of the Russian Scientific Foundation “Development of the theory and methods of creation of intelligent position-path control systems for vehicle under the conditions of uncertainty” (14-19-01533).

Integrated system for modeling and virtual testing of UAV-based robotic complexes

The project goal is to create an integrated environment for informational support and control facilitating the design and functioning of the perspective UAV-based robotic systems, besides, the systems of intelligent control should be created both for the separate objects and integrated systems as a whole.
