Abstract:
Team 1313 of the Honeywell sponsored Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Development (UAV) project completed the following report during the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters as part of ENGR 498A/B. The main purpose of the project was to investigate the potential benefits of a ducted UAV versus a nonducted UAV. The product was initially designed for use by emergency responders such as firefighting crews. The team was also responsible for updating the electronic and avionic systems as well as redesigning a more stable flight platform. Team 1313 converted the original two motor UAV to a four motor quad copter design. The team also upgraded the electronics and flight software. The following report displays Team 1313’s success in developing the ducted UAV system and details the different design components, software architecture, graphical user interface, design analysis, acceptance testing, and challenges.
