Research of Redundancy Management on Fight Control Computer for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle


Article Preview

Redundancy technology is very important to improve the reliability and fault tolerant of redundant flight control computer for unmanned aerial vehicle. The key technology is redundancy management strategies and methods. The redundancy management strategies and methods are researched based on hardware redundancy and software management for the sample redundant flight control computer The redundancy management strategies make full use of the advantages of distributed systems and the CAN bus transmission characteristics, and solve the problem of fault diagnosis and fault treatment and system reconfiguration. Results show that the strategies meet the design specifications of application requirements.
