Autonomous “Figure-8” Flights of a Quadcopter: Experimental Datasets
AbstractThis article describes the data acquired from multiple flights of a custom-built quadcopter. The Quadcopter was programmed to fly a pre-defined “Figure-8” flight path, at a constant altitude. The data set includes flights with a varying number of waypoints (10 and 15 waypoints in each lobe of the “Figure-8”) and at two different velocities (1.5 and 2.5 m/s). The data also contains information on the output of the flight controller in terms of the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signals to each of the four Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC) driving the motors, the recorded outputs of the Inertial Measurement Unit (linear accelerations ax, ay, az and angular velocities p, q, r), GPS data (Latitude, Longitude, altitude, Horizontal Dilution of Precision (HDOP) and Vertical Dilution of Precision (VDOP). The data are included as Supplemental Material. View Full-Text
