Introduction

Introduction

  • UAVs play an important role in military and civilian applications. The development of UAV simulators are an important role in the development, training, and data analysis. The design of this project was to design a simulator that provided the trajectory of multiple UAVs from an initial point to a target point.


Research

Research

  • MATLAB

    • Programming syntax

    • Form controls

    • Commonly used MATLAB commands

  • Simulink

    • Simulink 3D animation Toolbox

      • vrsink

      • vrtrace

  • Virtual Reality Model Language (VRML)

    • Design Methods

      • Worlds

      • Objects

      • Viewpoints

      • Nodes


Purpose of the simulator

Purpose of the Simulator

  • 3D

    • Rotation

    • Position

    • Scaling

  • Trajectory

    • Map the path

    • Show the path

    • Show all points

    • Static Mode

    • Dynamic Mode

  • Built using Simulink, MATLAB, VRML


Simulator capabilities

Simulator Capabilities

  • Moves from an initial point to a target point

  • Follows a trajectory created by a Simulink Model

  • Uses VRML, Simulink, MATLAB

  • Easy to use


Graphical user interface

Graphical User Interface

  • Allows the creation of up to three virtual UAVs

  • Has a Static and Dynamic Mode

    • Static for moving to a target point from an initial point instantaneously

    • Dynamic is controlled by a Simulink model

  • Easy to input initial and target point data

  • Contains a table to store Dynamic coordinates

  • Embedded 3D Virtual World


Simulink model

Simulink Model

  • Calculates the velocity and angular velocity of an initial and target point

  • Returns a matrix with all points up to the target point

  • Calculates rotation

  • Easy to implement

VRML

  • Easy to use

    • 3D graphics is hard to work with, VRML offers an easy way to work with 3D objects

  • 3D World Builder

    • V-Realm

      • Packaged with Simulink 3D animation block set

      • Can be used instead of text editor


Results

Results

  • An easy to use application was developed

  • Easy to add other options to the application

  • Used technology available to the University

    • Cost effective

    • Easy to find personnel to contribute to the development of the application

  • Able to jump from one the initial point to the target point

  • Able to follow a path created by a Simulink Model


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • A simulator that is easy to manipulate and easy to use with the ability to map the trajectory of an aircraft was developed.

  • MATLAB, Simulink, and VRML was used to develop the application.

  • An easy to use application was created

  • Easy to teach other developers how to create a better system
