This book offers a complete overview of fault-tolerant flight control techniques. Discussion covers the necessary equations for the modeling of small UAVs, a complete system based on extended Kalman filters, and a nonlinear flight control and guidance system.
Between 2002 and 2004, Guillaum Ducard worked with the team designing the Pac-Car 2, designing hardware and control software for embedded fuel cell systems. The vehicle holds the world record for fuel economy. Since 2004, Doctor Ducard has been interested in hardware and software for unmanned aerial vehicles including fixed-wing aeroplanes, high-altitude atmospheric air ships and quadricopters. He received his Dr.Sc. degree from ETH in 2007. His current research involves the design of navigation algorithms, flight control and guidance systems for quadricopters. Guillaume Ducard is a member of the IEEE and of the AIAA.
