Maplesoft’s suite of tools for modeling and analyzing engineering systems creates a robust simulation environment in which a detailed plant model of a quadrocopter can be used for LQR controller development and testing. The development of the plant and controller in the same Maplesoft environment:
- reduces the need for inefficient tool-swapping
- accelerates the design process
- optimizes the design of the controller
The combination of MapleSim, Maple and the MapleSim Control Design Toolbox allows an engineer to produce faster and more accurate results, thereby dramatically reducing the time and cost typically associated with control design.
