Using of the SPSA method to improve the accuracy of the UAV following a given route under the action of wind loads
In the modern world, UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) are increasingly used in everyday life in solving civilian tasks. One of the main applications of UAVs is data collection with their reference to a given coordinate system. For example, for the task of aerial photography, it is necessary to accurately link each image to the global coordinate system. In addition to the exact location of coordinates, it is worth the exact movement of a given route,
to collect data of exactly those places that are needed. Thus, it is very important to ensure the minimum deviation of the UAV from the given route under the conditions of external disturbances (wind disturbances) acting on it. The article describes a procedure for assessing wind speed and direction for a UAV control system using the SPSA method. The simulation results of the algorithm operation, confirmed during flight tests on an ultralight UAV with an ardupilot autopilot, are presented.
