What is it about?

This paper proposes a solution to the attitude tracking problem for a novel quadrotor tailsitter UAV called swiveling biplane quadrotor. The vehicle is underactuated in attitude configuration manifold. An output tracking problem is posed which results in a single equivalent rigid body attitude tracking problem with second-order moment dynamics. The proposed controller is uniformly valid for all attitudes and is based on dynamic feedback linearization in a geometric control framework.
