Design of Hardware-in-Loop Simulation System for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
Hardware-in-loop simulation (HILS) is an important approach to the development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems. In this paper, a complete HILS system for UAV was constructed based on the dSPACE real-time simulator. To simulate the real world situation, problems such as the GPS signal and accelerometer signal imitation were addressed in the dSPACE framework. The HILS simulation of a UAV’s take-off process was exhibited with comparison to the digital simulation; the results show effectiveness of the proposed HILS system.
