Design and Simulation of Blending Function for Landing Phase of a UAV
Keywords: UAV, landing phase, glide slope, flare path, blending function, simulation, unmanned airvehicle
AbstractThis paper aims to achieve the autonomous landing of unmanned air vehicle (UAV). Itmainly deals with glide path design, flare path design, design of blending function, andinterfacing the glide and flare paths with the blending function. During transition from glideslope to flare path, a UAV will tend to the unstable region. In a manned aircraft, the pilotcontrols the unstability that occurs during the change of phase from glide slope to flare, butwhich is impossible in UAV till now. A blending function has been formulated for use in a UAVto overcome this unstability during transition. This simulation is done with the Matlab Simulinkand the results are reported.
