A Pipeline for Data-Driven Dynamics Modelling For UAVs Using Flight Logs - Manuel Galliker, ETH Zurich

Feedback form is now closed.
In this talk, I will present our work on a data-driven dynamics modelling pipeline for UAVs operating with PX4. This open source project provides a framework to identify a parametric model using flight logs from a standard PX4 sensor suite. Tools to assess identification data distribution and parameter quality are further included. I will briefly introduce the main components and concepts of the pipeline and how to leverage its modular design to extend it to the drone type or needs of the operator. Multi-copter and fixed-wing UAV examples will be presented. Functionality is additionally included to automatically import generated vehicle dynamics models into the PX4 SITL Gazebo simulation environment. This will be demonstrated with a short video.
