Quadrotor modelling and Control with SimMechanics

File Information

Quadrotor modelled with SimMechanics using the Solidworks link and PID control with Control toolbox.

I've did not received the 3d printed parts yet but as soon as I receive them I will also update the plant with the System Identification toolbox.

Currently I have problems to get the state-space representation from this model (I'm trying with linmod) if someone know better how to do this please give some feedback ;)


This file inspired Mulit Quadrotor Control Using Simulink And Sim Mechanics.

Nice work!

I get the same error as @Chen, when I try to run the model:
"Variant Subsystem block 'QuadRotor_PID_Simulink3d/Plant_Quad_Base' contains no active variant objects."

What is the problem here?

When I run the simulation, It popped out that "Variant Subsystem block 'QuadRotor_PID_Simulink3d/Plant_Quad_Base' contains no active variant objects.", how can I fix this problem?

great sim. Have you tried using the LINEARIZE command instead of linmod?
