Two Degrees of Freedom Helicopter Testbed

Two degree of freedom testbeds are an important tool for understanding and testing control algorithms for dynamic vehicles such as helicopters. The UNCA Joint Engineering Mechatronics Program is developing a low cost option for testing attitude control algorithms for a two degree of freedom helicopter system. This test bench tracks rotation in both pitch and yaw directions allowing for the testing of control algorithms in a safe, crash free environment. This device will allow students to rapidly test and develop control algorithms in future projects, and increase educational opportunities in the engineering program.
