Autonomous Cooperative Control of Emergent Systems of Systems (ACCESS) Laboratory

Software

X-Plane Simulator: X-Plane is a comprehensive and powerful flight simulator for personal computers consisting of realistic flight models, which can be used as an engineering tool to predict the flying qualities of fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft with incredible accuracy. X-Plane contains subsonic and supersonic flight dynamics, allowing users to predict the flight characteristics of aerial vehicles in different modes. Through the plugin interface, users can create external modules that extend the X-Plane interface, flight model or create new features.

AeroSIM RC Simulation software: AeroSIM RC simulator is a computer program that is used to train pilots of radio-controlled aircraft in ACCESS lab to practice on a computer, without the risk and expense of a damaging a real model.

Pix4Dmapper: The collected images will be processed by Pix4Dmapper LT 3DR Edition software which is a fully automatic mapping and modeling solution. The software can convert and join thousands of images to highly accurate, georeferenced and orthorectified 2D mosaics.

LabView: Labview is a software development environment and a visual programming language from National Instruments which is used as a system-design and platform and an integration tool in ACCESS lab.

Matlab/Simulink: The MATLAB software and Simulink are extensively used in ACCESS lab for developing and simulating different control algorithms.
