Estimating wind using a quadrotor


The aim of this work is to estimate the average wind influencing a quadrotor drone only based on standard navigation sensors and equations of motion. It can be used in several situation, including atmospheric studies, trajectory planning under environmental constraints, or as a reference for studying flights in shear layer. For this purpose, a small quadrotor drone with spherical shape has been developed. Flight data are recorded from telemetry during indoor and outdoor flight tests and are post-processed. The proposed solution is based on a calibration procedure with global optimization to extract the drag model and a Kalman Filter for online estimation of the wind speed and direction. Finally, an on-board implementation of the real-time estimation is demonstrated with real flights in controlled indoor environment.
