Abstract

This paper discusses on the development of autonomous attitude control of a quadcopter unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The Quadcopter system is modeled using state-space equations and simulated in MATLAB/SIMULINK. The paper describes the controller design method for automatic attitude control of UAV to enable the system to operate based on the task of the navigation unit. To be specific, the PID controller is designed to control and stabilize quadcopter attitude.  Then Quadcopter acceleration control system will be designed. This system is designed by combining the attitude control on Quadcopter rigid body with acceleration control Quadcopter movement. Through the obtained results, the proposed PID controller managed to control the acceleration of quadcopter well.
