Control system for lightweight inertially stabilized camera platform
Author: Salášek Jan
The aim of this thesis is to design and implement complete control system for a light-weight inertially stabilized camera platform. This platform is intended to be used in small UAVs. The purpose of the platform is tracking moving or standing target while attenuating base disturbances to hold the line-of-sight stationary. Stabilization is based on measurement of camera inertial angular rates. Correction movements are produced by standard DC motors with gears. To compensate backlash in gears dual motors are employed. Thesis presents brief introduction to mechanical configuration, description of control loops and design of electronic boards. Functionality of the designed system was verified by laboratory experiments and in real operational conditions.
