AAU HeliSim is a mathematical model of a generic helicopter and it has been developed at Aalborg University, Denmark. The purpose of the model is to support research and education in autonomous helicopters.
# Available for Linux and Windows
# Many parameters are user accessible allowing you to customize your helicopter.
# AAU HeliSim is based on publicly available literature where all formulas and assumptions are well-described.
# The mathematical model is a first principles model so all changable parameters have real physical meaning.
# Runs 'out of the box', so all you have to do is download, unpack, open Matlab and press run.
# Include functions for generating trim values based on user specifications.
# 3D graphics based on the Irrlicht engine visualizes the helicopter in flight and in real time.
# The graphics includes shading, shadows, smoke etc to give a more realistic appearance.
# AAU HeliSim makes it very easy to test controllers and estimators for helicopters, and to quickly become familiar with helicopter dynamics.
