Quadcopter Drone Model in Simscape

Quadcopter with multibody, electrical and thermal models follows a path to deliver a package.
Updated 6 Dec 2023
This example models a quadcopter that navigates a path to deliver a package.
  • Electric motors and battery enable estimation of current draw and drone range
  • CAD files of the chassis and propellers model the mechanical system
  • Cascaded PID controllers adjust motor speeds to control altitude and attitude
  • Path following and speed controllers provide high-level commands
  • Python queries to a weather database obtain location-specific wind conditions
  • Wind gust profiles test stability of drone controllers
  • Profitability analysis in a MATLAB App enables exploring technical and business tradeoffs
