Abstract

Due to the economy's tremendous growth and the technology's impressive advancement, the practicality of UAVs has become a hot topic of concern for all sectors of society at present. According to the classification of flight platform configuration, drones may be split into many different types. Quadrotor drones are a common type of aerial robot, which is widely used in civilian and military fields at this stage. The safety and stability of the UAV in use are particularly important, so its flight attitude must be humanly tuned and controlled. This paper mainly analyzes the attitude control technology of quadrotor UAVs. Firstly, the key components and technical difficulties of attitude control are analyzed. Then some common control methods and application scenarios of current mainstream control methods are introduced and analyzed in detail. Finally, future research directions are analyzed and summarized based on the existing methods.

Keywords

quadrotor drones, attitude control, application scenarios, future research directions.
