Hybrid unmanned aerial vehicles combine the advantages of vertically landing helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. By construction, they have the ability to change the direction of their thrust vector. Hence, they can take off and land without the need of a space consuming runway, but are able to transition into an energy efficient forward-flight.

Especially the automation of this transition phase between hovering and forward-flight poses a challenging control problem since the highly non-linear system structure changes.

This research project addresses two main topics: On the one hand, we aim at establishing techniques for a redundancy analysis of over-actuated nonlinear systems. On the other hand, powerful control strategies for enabling the safe transition between hovering and forward-flight and vice-versa are developed.
