Tipo tesi RICERCA
Descrizione Drones are becoming increasingly popular as they provide simple yet effective solutions to a number of problems, from agriculture and rescue missions, to aerial photography. On the other hand, drones are extremely complex systems, not only in terms of mechanics but also in the design of their energy management: to ensure proper operation, they must be autonomous and allow effective power management and reduce the need to recharge and replace batteries.
The thesis involves the development of a drone simulator that includes functional aspects, energy-related aspects, like consumption and energy production/management, and mechanical aspects:
• the functional aspects rely on a RISC-V simulator implemented in C (GVSoC), which can run the drone control software;
• the mechanical model includes various physical dynamics, including the aerodynamics of the rotor-propeller assembly, the electromechanical dynamics of the engine, and dynamics of the rigid body of the cell;
• the power model includes consumption estimation and modeling of the energy distribution system, including a LiCoO2 battery.
The simulation infrastructure is C-based, as the RISC-V simulator is implemented in C and both extra-functional models will be modeled in SystemC-AMS. The integration between GVSoC and SystemC-AMS is already partially implemented.
