I am currently in the process of building a quadrotor from scratch and before I get to far into development of code and such I was wondering if there were any actual micro controllers that I could buy in a reasonable price range and that would be able to run the C code generated by Simulink generator? This way I could focus on the control theory rather than worry about code all the time and its flaws.. Will this controller also be able to take inputs such as the gyroscope/accelerometer data and use it in real time with the code?
There are lots of rapid prototyping systems on the market. TMW has a few too. I don't know what is the "reasonable price" for you. You can find a list of company/product at http://www.mathworks.com/products/connections/prod_task_real_index.html. Select Task->Realtime systems
Hi guys, I was working on modelling and controlling a quad rotor flying robot. And finally I am done with the whole process. However, lately I thought of simulating the robot in a 3D trajectory plane or may be an environment to track it's path and see the differences UN-controlled and after controlling. I don't wanna write lots of complex mathematical equation to describe what I wanna do in order to make it easy for anyone to help me.
My question is simple as follows: I have 6 equations that give 6 different outputs (X Y Z theta Phi Epsi). All what I need from anyone is tell me how to connect 6 different equation with 1 block diagram that translates these outputs in a 3D space.
*Hi Zack , in MATLAB Library there is SimScape which includes SimMechanics , it has many useful blocks. Also there is the Aerospace Blockset where you will find output animation for planes ... and a menu called "Axes Transformation" for rotational and translation matrices .
by the way .. am also working on simulation on MATLAB for Quadroto(Quadcopter), for my project in mechatronics and would like to share ideas if u are open to that :)
