UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) / flying robots

Aerial robots are very complex machines to control, since every flying object has 6 degrees of freedom that need to be controlled, namely, the gross movements (x, y, z), and the 3 orientation rotations (roll, pitch, yaw).  Mechatronic technologies  can be used to control such degrees of freedom, to make it much easier to control hovering and flying aircraft.
