A Novel Design for Aerial Robotsto Enhance Flight Performance

Bahador Beigomi and Afshin Banazadeh
Abstract—In this study, a novel idea for a vertical takeoff and landing aerial robot is proposed to overcome the defects in conventional designs. Here, the coupling between translational and rotational movements that usually end up reducing flight performance and increasing control effort is eliminated by decreasing the number of main rotors and adding extra small ducted fans in an innovative scheme. The robot, named TubeDuct, can reach any position in space in a favorable horizontal attitude in order to accomplish the predefined mission with less power consumption and better performance. A linear control strategy is also proposed for this vehicle. The results are supported by nonlinear mathematical modeling and simulation, using ANSYS and MATLAB Simulink.

Index Terms—TubeDuct, aerial robot, dynamic modeling, nonlinear simulation.
