Description/Abstract

The research pertains to improving the efficiency of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), or commonly referred to as Drones. In addition, the research aims to show the feasibility of smart materials in UAVs. The research is conducted to improve the efficiency, stability and control of a Quadcopter using piezoelectric materials. A senior design team from the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department is working on the design and implementation of smart materials to the propellers. A flight controller is being coded using Simulink. A generator is being designed using electromagnetic induction.
