Flight Animation Framework for MATLAB/Simulink Visualization

A concrete and ready-to-use visualization package written in Matlab for flight simulation.

  • Provides a compact and easy way to generate animations from flight simulation data.
  • Encapsulates and concentrates individual 3D rendering functions into a single function to provide a clean and concrete interface.

OptiTrack Processing Package

The OptiTrack ROS node is responsible for processing the position and attitude feedback for quadrotor experiments inĀ Flight System and Control Lab (FSC). The OptiTrack node must be downloaded and installed on the ground station desktop/computer. This package supports an arbitrary number of rigid bodies defined in the argument of the launch file. The names of the rigid bodies should be the same as the ones used in the Motive software.
