Index Terms: Flight Control System, Kalman Filter, PID Controller, UAV, MATLAB.



Abstract: Kalman and PID controller are used to design UAV (Unmanned Air Vehicles) formation flight control system for speed and pitch angle. UAV adjusted the PID parameters to realize control stability of UAV flight. The simulation results will show that Kalman and PID controller have better dynamic performance than the traditional controller in respect of simpler design, higher precision, easier implement, etc. At the same time, the control effect will be significantly improved. In addition, Kalman & PID control is superior in short transition, good stability, anti-disturbance, good control and etc, it also fulfills the requirement of real-time and accurate control.
