This paper presents a method for designing a virtual sensor in the case of Fault Tolerant Control. The whole approach, described in the paper, is applied to a winding machine. The process is modelled by a Linear Time Varying (LTV) model. The control of the web tension is based on the estimated or...
In this paper, an autonomous takeoff and landing control strategy is designed and implemented for a prototype coaxial unmanned helicopter with ducted fan configuration. The control strategy is designed such that longitudinal and lateral controls use ground forces, attitude and drifting feedbacks....
