Abstract : This article presents the Cartesian position control of a quadrotor system in the indoor environment.
Prior to applying the position control to a quadrotor system, the quadrotor is localized to measure the status of
the quadrotor system under the vision system. Due to the expensive cost of motion-capturing sensors, a single
camera is used to detect the heading angle and the position by using the color of markers on the top of the quadrotor
system. Since a single camera cannot detect the distance from the object, compensation methods for the position and
height are presented. Localization for the height can be done by using local information on the basis of the regular
rectangular shape of the tiles on the floor. Control performances of the hovering, heading angle and trajectory are
evaluated by empirical studies.
