Airspace’s increasing demand is a current concern without a solution. Different research projects aim to expand its available capacity by improving software performance, for example, concerning trajectory prediction and conflict detection methods. This research contributes to this goal by investigating the effect of different look-ahead time...

This study investigates the effectiveness of vehicle dynamics and road environment data for predicting lateral accelerations and yaw rates. This prediction is used to preposition a simulator in anticipation of this motion. A prediction model was created using the road curvature at a specific look-ahead<br/>time and the current vehicle velocity....

Testing novel concepts in the allocation and use of aircraft is commonly done in air traffic simulators. Current day simulators rely on proprietary models and often propose questionable solutions. This paper uses BlueSky as simulator, in cooperation with performance models OpenAP and BADA. BlueSky aims to provide the user with full freedom to...

Since 2019, the FAA and the EASA impose to all airline pilots to follow, as part of their training, a stall and recovery training. To mitigate the risks, this training takes place in ground-based simulators. To make it happen, models of the aircraft behaviour at high angle of attack need to be developed. Among the different modeling approaches...

Semantic segmentation methods have been developed and applied to single images for object segmentation. However, for robotic applications such as high-speed agile Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) in Autonomous Drone Racing (ADR), it is more interesting to consider temporal information as video sequences are correlated over time. In this work, we...

This study has researched what are defining factors on the attitude toward a new technology within the group of Area Control (ACC) at Luchtverkeersleiding Nederland (LVNL) and how these factors shape an Air Traffic Controller’s (ATCo) attitude toward the technology in an exploratory way. The outcomes of the research suggest that dominant factors...

To fully optimize the synergy between human operators and machines in modern day’s highly automated vehicle control tasks, a real-time quantitative feedback of skill level is required. Direct feedback of skill level could be used to enable scalable levels of autonomy of the controlled system, or to provide a warning when sudden skill level...

Micro robotic airships offer significant advantages in terms of safety, mobility, and extended flight times. However, their highly restrictive weight constraints pose a major challenge regarding the available computational power to perform the required control tasks. Thus, spiking neural networks (SNNs) are a promising research direction. By...

Abstract—During the transition from manual driving to (partially) automated driving, conflicts between human and automation should be minimized. An important factor to reduce the human-machine interaction risk is by increasing the trust drivers have in the system. A system including human-like behaviour tends to be trusted more. Accurate models...

Model predictive control is an optimal, model-based control method that has the powerful capability of directly including input and output constraints. Next to this, it is known that helicopters are hard to fly with its complex, unstable and highly coupled dynamics. With the introduction of the concept of handling qualities, guidelines for...

Fault-tolerant flight control faces challenges as developing a model-based controller for each unexpected failure is unrealistic, and online learning methods can handle limited system complexity due to their low sample efficiency. In this research, a model-free coupled-dynamics flight controller for a jet aircraft able to withstand multiple...

hen observing an Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) race, one would be hard-pressed to call it racing as the actual velocities attained are extremely low. This article addresses this shortcoming by proposing a method of generating and executing a racing trajectory for a UAV, through a series of position objectives representative of a racing...

Online Adaptive Flight Control is interesting in the context of growing complexity of aircraft systems and their adaptability requirements to ensure safety. An Incremental Approximate Dynamic Programming (iADP) controller combines reinforcement learning methods, optimal control and Online identified incremental model to achieve optimal adaptive...

In recent years, developments in the field of aerospace materials and structures has been bringing major breakthroughs in the construction of air vehicles to be more lightweight yet with higher strength. However, the aircraft body can deform more appreciably due to the occurrence of flow separation and flutter. Therefore, active control is...

Traditional analysis of human manual control behaviour is currently constrained by the linear time-invariant assumption of the state-of-the-art “cybernetic” approach. This implies that time-varying and nonlinear aspects of human behaviour are generally overlooked, while these could be critical characteristic factors in, for example, the...

Quadrotors lack redundancy in their actuators making actuator faults risky. One way to cope with actuator failures on quadrotors is to sacrifice yaw control and use the remaining rotors to land directly or maintain forward flight. In order to apply an appropriate control strategy, these active fault tolerant control (AFTC) methods require a...

This thesis project aims to increase the safety of multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems by researching Fault Detection and Diagnosis (FDD) modules to fit into an Active Fault-Tolerant Control (AFTC) system designed to recover a damaged multicopter, hence avoiding crashes. In order to meet the ever-increasing safety standards set by...

This thesis presents a new control philosophy based on Direct Force Control (DFC) for over-actuated aircraft. It is predicated on simultaneously controlling all six Degrees of Freedom (DoF). The Innovative Control Effectors (ICE) aircraft with its thirteen-part control effector suite is the subject of study. Active-Set (A-S) based Incremental...

Better predictability of future aircraft locations will result in more efficient air-traffic management operations and therefore an increase in airspace capacity. However, flight paths tend to have a stochastic character causing their predictability to decrease with the look-ahead time. In this research a quantitative analysis is made of the...
