Abstract

This paper presents a brief history and description of capabilities of the Georgia Tech Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Research Facility, while extracting and summarizing many significant and applicable results produced in the last fourteen years. Twenty-six selected publications are highlighted, which are representative of the research conducted at GT-UAVRF since 2000. The papers are divided into three groups: 1) development of a fault-tolerant adaptive flight control system, 2) development of vision-based navigation and control algorithms, and 3) special applications. For each group, the research and results are described, with references to the relevant paper(s).
