  • The Effects of Rewards on Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
           Operations Using Reinforcement Learning
    • Authors: Hemali Virani, Dahai Liu, Dennis Vincenzi
      Pages: 349 - 360
      Abstract: Unmanned Systems, Volume 09, Issue 04, Page 349-360, October 2021.
      The effects of rewards on the ability of an autonomous UAV controlled by a Reinforcement Learning agent to accomplish a target localization task were investigated. It was shown that with an increase in the reward obtained by a learning agent upon correct detection, systems would become more risk-tolerant, efficient and have a tendency to locate targets faster with an increase in the sensor sensitivity after systems achieve steady-state performance.

  • A Novel Framework for Multiple Ground Target Detection, Recognition and
           Inspection in Precision Agriculture Applications Using a UAV
    • Authors: Shahbaz Khan, Muhammad Tufail, Muhammad Tahir Khan, Zubair Ahmad Khan, Javaid Iqbal, Arsalan Wasim
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: Unmanned Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have been recently used for different civilian applications such as remote sensing, search, and rescue (SAR), precision agriculture (PA), etc. A UAVs ability to sense and find targets remotely and, based on that, hover close to the target for a particular action makes it an ideal platform for the aforementioned applications. There has been extensive work carried out in the field of visual-based detection, navigation, and control, but the problem of detecting different ground targets and performing certain actions is still an open research area. This study proposes a novel framework for multiple target detection, recognition, and navigation of the UAV to the desired target and closely inspect it. This proposed framework can be deployed for accurately spot spraying in PA applications or SAR. The target detection and recognition in the framework are achieved through a computationally efficient Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) trained model, whereas the close inspection of the target is achieved through a PID-based tracking algorithm which ensures the UAV hover around the target for few seconds. The developed framework performed the desired objective in five stages employing Lawson’s control theory of sense, process, compare, decide and act. The target detection and recognition in the framework were validated with the field experiment, while the entire framework was validated through a variety of simulation flights conducted in Gazebo and PX4. The experiments’ results showed the versatility of the developed system to many complex missions where the targets are added or removed.

  • A Comprehensive Review on Reconfigurable Drones: Classification,
           Characteristics, Design and Control Technologies
    • Authors: Saddam Hocine Derrouaoui, Yasser Bouzid, Mohamed Guiatni, Islam Dib
      Pages: 1 - 27
      Abstract: Unmanned Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Recently, reconfigurable drones have gained particular attention in the field of automation and flying robots. Unlike the conventional drones, they are characterized by a variable mechanical structure in flight, geometric adaptability, aerial reconfiguration, high number of actuators and control inputs, and variable mathematical model. In addition, they are exploited to flight in more cluttered environments, avoid collisions with obstacles, transport and grab objects, cross narrow and small spaces, decrease different aerial damages, optimize the consumed energy, and improve agility and maneuverability in flight. Moreover, these new drones are considered as a viable solution to provide them with specific and additional functionalities. They are a promising solution in the near future, since they allow increasing considerably the capabilities and performance of classical drones in terms of multi-functionalities, geometric adaptation, design characteristics, consumed energy, control, maneuverability, agility, efficiency, obstacles avoidance, and fault tolerant control. This paper explores very interesting and recent research works, which include the classification, the main characteristics, the various applications, and the existing designs of this particular class of drones. Besides, an in-depth review of the applied control strategies will be presented. The links of the videos displaying the results of these researches will be also shown. A comparative study between the different types of flying vehicles will be established. Finally, several new challenges and future directions for reconfigurable drones will be discussed.

  • Solar Panel Effect on Low-Speed Airfoil Aerodynamic Performance
    • Authors: Mostafa El-Salamony, Mohamed A. Aziz
      Pages: 1 - 15
      Abstract: Unmanned Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Recently, a great interest in search of alternate means of power for the traditional fuel for aircraft propulsion is raised so as to decrease gas emissions and reduce operating costs. For the small and micro unmanned aerial vehicles or small transportation aircraft, there are many challenges in the direction of constructing an electric or solar powered airplane whose wings may possibly be sheltered with photo voltaic PV solar panels to harvest sun’s energy for propulsion. Greatest remarkably success solar powered aircraft has attracted the attention of researchers other than UAV and small aircraft supporters. Although the solar panel is thin, its thickness is considerable compared to the airfoil thickness. This paper aims to evaluate the impact of adding the solar panel over a low camber airfoil suitable for low-Reynolds number flights, as mini UAVs. Three panel installation configurations are examined to stand on the most suitable configuration, in terms of aerodynamic efficiency. The analysis is based on the airfoil characteristics (lift, drag, and moment) and the pressure distribution over the airfoil surface. A parametric study is conducted to study the effect of the solar panel size, thickness, and position on the aerodynamic performance.

  • Reverse Engineering and Database of Off-the-Shelf Propellers for
           Middle-Size Multirotors
    • Authors: Yeong-Ki Jung, Kyoungsik Chang, Sang-Hwan Park, Van Thanh Ho, Ho-Joon Shim, Min-Woo Kim
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: Unmanned Systems, Ahead of Print.
      In this work, 22 off-the-shelf propellers of 15–40 inches in diameter are reverse-engineered using a scanning system and reverse engineering software. Geometric information, including the diameter and pitch of the propeller and its airfoil sections, are extracted, and the chord length and twist angle of the extracted airfoil sections are investigated. All processes for reverse engineering are validated through comparison with design drawing information, product and performance data of the KPROP propeller designed by Korea Aerospace Research Institute. Based on the validated process, a database of 22 commercial propellers from four companies is constructed containing all the reverse-engineered information. The chord length, the maximum length and twist angle with respect to the diameter of the extracted airfoil section are analyzed in comparison with each other depending on the company and propeller size. In addition, the thrust and torque are simulated using computational fluid dynamic methodology, and the predictions are compared with reference data provided by the manufacturers.

  • Impact of N-Shaped Wing Morphing on Solar-Powered Aircraft
    • Authors: Mostafa E. El-Salamony, Mohamed A. Aziz
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: Unmanned Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Generally, unmanned aerial vehicles and micro aerial vehicles depend on batteries or conventional fuel as a source of energy. These sources of energy have limited flight time, relatively high cost, and also a certain level of pollutants. Solar energy applied to aerial vehicles is an excellent alternative way to overcome other sources of energy’s disadvantage. This study aimed to design a solar-powered aerial vehicle to achieve continuous flight on Earth. The efficiency of the solar system is related to the absorbed sun rays. The concept of an anti-symmetric N-shaped morphing wing is a good idea to increase the collected solar energy during the daily sun path. But this comes with the penalty of side forces and moments due to the anti-symmetry of the wing. This paper introduces a study for two parameters that strongly affect the aerodynamics of the N-shaped morphing wing; the dihedral part angle and the dihedral part length. The impact of the dihedral angle decreases the lift coefficient and increases the drag coefficient. The impact of the morphing wing on the aircraft performance is also considered.

  • A New Nonlinear Control Design Strategy for Fixed Wing Aircrafts Piloting
    • Authors: A. Hamissi, K. Busawon, L. Dala, Y. Bouzid, M. Zaouche, M. Hamerlain
      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: Unmanned Systems, Ahead of Print.
      This paper proposes a novel nonlinear feedback control strategy for velocity and attitude control of fixed wing aircrafts. The key feature of the control design strategy is the introduction of a virtual control input in order to deal with the underactuation property of such vehicles and to indirectly control the orientation of the aircraft. As such, the proposed strategy consists of three control loops each realizing a specific task. Simulations are carried out by using the jetstream-3102 aircraft in a real-time virtual Simulation Platform for the development of Aircraft Control Systems (SP-ACS). The proposed approach of control is model-based for which we have introduces an identification part before test and validation. We use the Total Least Squares Estimation (TLSE) technique to identify the aerodynamic parameters, which are unknown, variable and classified. Each aerodynamic coefficient is defined as the mean of its numerical values. All other variations are considered as modeling uncertainties that will be compensated by the robustness of the piloting law. Simulation results on Jetstream-3102 aircraft show very good performance in terms of convergence towards the desired reference trajectories and in terms of robustness with respect to modeling uncertainties.

  • Investigation of Orientation Estimation of Multiple IMUs
    • Authors: Simone A. Ludwig
      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: Unmanned Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) were first applied to aircraft navigation and large devices in the 1930s. At that time their application was restricted because of constraints such as size, cost, and power consumption. In recent years, however, Micro-electromechanical (MEMS) IMUs were introduced with very favorable features such as low cost, compactness, and low processing power. One of the disadvantages of these low cost IMU sensors is that the accuracy is lower compared to high-end sensors. However, past experimental results have shown that redundant Magnetic and Inertial Measurement Units (MIMUs) improve navigation performance such as for unmanned air vehicles. Even though past simulation and experimental results demonstrated that redundant sensors improve the navigation performance, however, none of the current research work offers information as to how many sensors are required in order to meet a certain accuracy. This paper evaluates different numbers of sensor configurations of an MIMU sensor array using a simulation environment. Differently rotated MIMU sensors are incrementally added and the Madgwick filter is used to estimate the Euler angles of foot mounted MIMU data. The evaluation measure used is the root mean square error (RMSE) based on the Euler angles as compared to the ground truth. During the experiments it was noticed that the execution time with increasing number of sensors increases exponentially, and thus, the parallelization of the code was designed and implemented, and run on a multi-core machine. Thus, the speedup of the parallel implementation was evaluated. The findings using the parallel version with 16 sensors are that the execution time is less than twice the execution time of having only 1 sensor and 24 times less than using the sequential version with the added benefit of a 26% increase in accuracy.
