Abstract

The goal of this project was to develop a system of coordinated micro aerial vehicles along with an unmanned ground vehicle in order to advance the development of collaborative systems. The design objectives were to maximize flight time and mobility of a quad-rotor, and to minimize the size of the system. Analysis, design, construction, and testing of an autonomous quad-rotor and ground vehicle for collaborative operations were completed. The resulting system was capable of deployment and hover.
