Design and Flight Tests of a Drone for Delivery Service
Kim, Seong-Hwan; Lee, Doo-Ki; Cheon, Jae-Hee; Kim, Seung-Jae; Yu, Kee-Ho;
In this paper, an unmanned delivery service using drone was proposed and verified the feasibility. The multicopter has GPS for autopilot and a camera for remote control by human operator. The gripper for manipulation of delivery object was designed and evaluated. The multicopter flies to a given position automatically based on GPS, and approaches to the prepared delivery desk by remote control of human operator using the received image from the multicopter. GPS sensor verification and experimental PID tuning were performed to ensure the flight stability. The flight tests were carried out to verify the feasibility of delivery service.
