AbstractIn this paper, we developed a novel Cross-Entropy Optimization (CEO)-based Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) for Fail-Safe UAV to expand its collision avoidance capabilities in the GPS-denied environments using Monocular Visual-Inertial SLAM-based strategy. The function of this FLC aims to control the heading of Fail-Safe UAV to avoid the obstacle, e.g. wall, bridge, tree line et al, using its real-time and accurate localization information. In the Matlab Simulink-based training framework, the Scaling Factor (SF) is adjusted according to the collision avoidance task firstly, and then the Membership Function (MF) is tuned based on the optimized Scaling Factor to further improve the control performances. After obtained the optimal SF and MF, 64 % of rules has been reduced (from 125 rules to 45 rules), and a large number of real see-and-avoid tests with a quadcopter have done. The simulation and experiment results show that this new proposed FLC can precisely navigates the Fail-Safe UAV to avoid the obstacle, obtaining better performances compared to only SF optimization-based FLC. To our best knowledge, this is the first work to present the optimized FLC using Cross-Entropy method in both SF and MF optimization, and apply it in the UAV. © Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2013.
