Traditional quadcopters have generally been operated by a controller in real time. This has often required precious manpower and time. In recent years, research and development in the field of robotics has led to the creation of autonomous flying quadcopters, which save more manpower and time when compared to traditional quadcopters. This project presents the model development and implementation of an interface for the autonomous Nano quadcopter using Simulink. MATLAB Simulink was selected as the platform for simulation owing to its robustness, security and real-time simulation capabilities. A Simulink model was developed for the autonomous flight of the Nano quadcopter and an interface with MATLAB level 2 S-function was created to communicate with the quadcopter. Real-time simulation of the autonomous flight maintaining constant altitude was then achieved using a predefined set of control values.
