ETH Zurich's Omnicopter Plays Fetch

IEEE Spectrum Robotics Channel

Even aircraft designed to hover, like helicopters and quadrotors, have preferential directions of orientation and travel where their particular arrangement of motors and control surfaces makes them most effective. ETH Zurich's Omnicopter goes about flying in a totally different way. We have developed a computationally efficient trajectory generator for six degrees-of-freedom multirotor vehicles, i.e. The fetching work comes from Dario Brescianini and Raffaello D'Andrea at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control (IDSC), ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
