Abstract:This report is about the research and development of a controller that enables the Robird to go into ’glide mode’. Currently there is already such a controller implemented in the Robird, but this is not very accurate nor very fast. Research on the Robird was done to determine what the possibilities were to design this controller. An embedded system, a Ramstix, was used for this purpose. Read-out and control of the systemis done by the Ramstix and eventually a working controller was developed. Extensive testing of this controller in several set-ups is done to proof the concept. For the controller to work inside a flying Robird only one thing is left to be done; implementing this controller onto a smaller embedded system that fits inside the Robird. Recommendations for such an embedded system are also given in this report.
