UAV Flight Log Analysis with MATLAB
Flying a drone, either manually or autonomously, is a complex task. A drone includes several critical parts such as a chassis or platform, motors and sensors. There are numerous reasons why a drone can crash – from incorrect sensor reading to battery issues. It is essential to tune the performance by analyzing the reasons for any failure in simulation or after the test flight.
A flight log analysis tool takes a drone’s log file as an input and provides various plots for flight analysis. You can use the Flight Log Analyzer app with UAV Toolbox in MATLAB for analyzing UAV autopilot flight logs by creating a customized series of plots. You can load different telemetry log files including TLOG, ULOG, and custom file types. You can also use flight log analysis functions to extract and map signals from a telemetry log for generating custom plots.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Use Flight Log Analyzer app
- Analyze UAV autopilot flight logs
- Import custom flight log and signal data
- Troubleshoot flight issues by identifying anomalies in flight data
