Quadcopter Simulation and Control Made Easy

Ryan Gordon, MathWorks

Join MathWorks engineer, Ryan Gordon, as he demonstrates how to build a quadcopter simulation by importing data from a 3D CAD program into Simulink. Using this simulation he will then design a simple controller that will allow the vehicle to take off and hover. The modeling, simulation, and control principles used in this webinar can be applied to systems of varying complexity.

About the Presenter: Ryan Gordon has over 6 years of experience with MATLAB and Simulink. Prior to joining MathWorks Ryan developed guidance and control systems for unmanned aircraft.
