Abstract

An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or UAV is a vehicle that can fly with minimal intervention. This project involves in designing and integrating UAV technologies into a prototype that stabilizes itself while navigating in the harsh conditions of oil and gas plant. The project does not use existing commercial UAVs and flight controller board in the market. A self-fabricated prototype of UAV is built from scratch. The prototype consists of a structure made of aluminum and four brushless DC motor to provide lift-off and maneuver the flight motion. The controls is embedded in a microcontroller and is equipped with electronic speed controllers to drive the motor, sensors such as gyroscopes and accelerometers to give orientation feedback and uses wireless communications via Xbee modules. The microcontroller receives command from a personal computer via the Xbee modules. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) is developed in software called Processing for monitoring and maneuvering purposes. For the chassis, it is modeled using Autodesk Inventor software to ensure design is applicable. The expected outcome of this project is a complete prototype that can be controlled from a personal computer (PC).
