Flight Control System Onboard Embedded Software for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
The onboard software of the flight control system (FCS) plays important role for small unmanned aerial vehicles’ performance. In this paper, the characteristics difficulties of the FCS software are analyzed firstly, then the compositions of the software are introduced using HIPO method. A genetic architecture of onboard software is presented to coordinate and organize the software and function modules, and an unique task scheduling strategy is designed and applied to realize multi-task processing. Finally, on the basis of the elementary operation procedure of the software, the flight experiment is implemented, and the feasibility and reliability of the onboard software is validated.
