Abstract [en]

The excellent maneuverability and the availability of a large number of sensors including good quality video cameras make quadcopters attractive for surveillance systems. Most video surveillance systems need a real-time high quality video stream from the cameras on the quadcopter to the base station which requires a stable and reliable radio link. Moreover, to ensure a controlled flight, it is essential to maintain a good quality radio link from the base station to the quadcopter. The quality of this link depends on the distance between base station and quadcopter as well as the ambient noise. Towards this end, we present a controller to hover a quadcopter at the maximum distance from the base station while maintaining the link quality at a given value indicated by the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). There are existing solutions in the field of robotics that incorporate the concept of link aware mobility. However, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first link-quality aware mobility implementation on a quadcopter.
