Student thesis: Master's Thesis


An automatic landing system for fixed-wing UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) was designed in this study verified in the hardware-in-loop simulation and with the goal of real flight test Because of the landing procedure for UAV was different from civil aviation the landing data collected from real flight tests were analyzed for design the automatic landing strategy The experimental platform is the Spoonbill-100 UAV system which was designed by the Remotely Piloted Vehicle & Micro Satellite Research Laboratory (RMRL) at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) For fast development and verification the fuzzy logic controller was applied on the flight control system which was including lateral control longitudinal control and navigation strategy Especially the adaptive fuzzy was applied on the altitude control from change the membership function of the fuzzy controller The adaptive altitude control made the UAV have better response during landing process About the real flight test the most important data were position and altitude Those data was provided by the Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) which was a good reference for testing the automatic landing system
