Autonomous drone control using UWB indoor positioning and communication.
2019 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to develop and test a autonomous drone system with

the use of Ultrawideband(UWB)-indoor positioning system and

communication. New indoor positioning technologies are the key to

autonomous vehicles where existing once such as GPS is not available

in the indoor environments. The drone is an agile and stable air

craft able to fly in the areas and spaces of a broad range of sizes

in both outdoor and indoor situations.

The goals of this thesis is to build a prototype for an autonomous

drone capable of receiving a signal over UWB communication and then

fly to the received location using a UWB positioning system.

The finished prototype was tested. The results show that it can find

its own location with an accuracy of around 10 cm inside the UWB

positioning system consisting of four anchors. It was also able to

receive a new location over UWB communication link and send back its

own current location in the two way communication. The drone can

compare its current location to the wanted received one and adjust

the signals to the motors accordingly to fly to that position.

Adding more sensors such as a magnetometer, barometer or another UWB

tag while cutting down the weight of the drone would be a big

improvement in the future. This would allow

the drone to fly for a longer time.
