Motion control theory applied to multi-rotor aerial vehicles (MAVs) has gained
attention with the recent increase in the processing power of computers, which
are now able to perform the calculations needed for this technique, and with
lower cost of sensors and actuators. Control algorithms of this kind are
to the position and the attitude of MAVs. In this presentation, we present a
review of recent developments in position control and attitude control of
multi-rotor aerial robots systems. We also point out the growth of related
research, starting with the boom in multi-rotor unmanned aerial robotics that
began after 2010, and we discuss reported field applications and future
challenges of the control problem described here. The objective of this
presentation is to provide a unified and accessible presentation, placing the
classical model of a multi-rotor aerial vehicle and the proposed control
approaches into a proper context, and to form a starting point for researchers
who are initiating their endeavors in linear/nonlinear position, altitude or
attitude control applied to MAVs.
