A collaboration with Prof. Alexis-Lussier Desbiens.
Students: Étienne Gendron, Bastien Périard.
Partner: Hydro-quebec Subjects: Controls, sensing, estimation, drone dynamics.
The goal of this project is to make autonomous the LineDrone developed by Hydro-Quebec. Control challenges to address include high-bandwidth localisation of the drone with respect to the cable, robust motion controller that can resist wind gusts, planing trajectories in uncertain environments.
