Abstract

This paper presents a small robotic flight system based on an airship. This system operates autonomously in its environment in order to carry out various applications in the field of surveillance and surface monitoring. Here, we report about the construction of our blimp-type airship and we present a mathematical description as a first modeling approach for this flight system. Then we describe the internal sensorics of this flying robot and we present some basic control strategies.
