Networked Control of Unmanned Air Vehicles

It is not just our phones that are getting smarter, it is the buildings as well. Connecting multiple sensors in a house to a main control unit allows this smart building to control things that a human normally would have to. Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) are aircrafts that are capable of piloting without a human on board and is a great addition to the smart building environment. The main goal of this project is to investigate the possibility of integrating UAVs to smart buildings by implementing a PID steering controller and an obstacle avoidance algorithm. In order to make the smart building more autonomous new applications for UAVs are discussed. As a conclusion we are able to show that the UAV used in this project successfully avoided a wall and then managed to navigate through a window in order to reach a reference point located at the other side of the wall.
