Abstract

This paper presents a Model-Based approach to develop UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) autopilot software. It employs Simulink to design the flight controller, Stateflow to implement control logic and Matlab coder to automatically generate embedded C code from the model developed. Software in the loop (SIL) and hardware in the loop (HIL) simulations are performed in the laboratory to validate the software developed. Flight trial cost and risks are minimized and the design cycles are greatly shortened. The feasibility and the effectiveness of the approach are verified through results from lab simulations and field trials.
