Abstract

A new control strategy is presented for a VTOL aerial robot with four rotors. A kinematics control law is first derived using Astolfi's discontinuous control, after introducing a chained form transformation with one generator and three chains to the original model. This was motivated by the fact that the discontinuous kinematic-model without using a chained form transformation assures only a local stability of the kinematic based control system, instead of guaranteeing a global stability of the control system. Finally, a computer simulation is given to demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach.
