This paper focuses on the problem of performing a robust textit{transition maneuver} for a particular class of tail sitter V/STOL (Vertical/Short Take-Off and Landing) aerial vehicles in which a switch from the hover flight towards the more efficient level flight configuration can be obtained by a change of the attitude. By considering also the presence of wind disturbances, this work proposes a control strategy based upon a path planning approach in order to improve the flight envelope protection of the airframe. Simulations are presented to show the effectiveness of the results.

Abstract

This paper focuses on the problem of performing a robust textit{transition maneuver} for a particular class of tail sitter V/STOL (Vertical/Short Take-Off and Landing) aerial vehicles in which a switch from the hover flight towards the more efficient level flight configuration can be obtained by a change of the attitude. By considering also the presence of wind disturbances, this work proposes a control strategy based upon a path planning approach in order to improve the flight envelope protection of the airframe. Simulations are presented to show the effectiveness of the results.
