lateral controller

lateral controller

[′lad·ə·rəl kən′trōl·ər]
(aerospace engineering)
A primary flight control mechanism, generally a part of the longitudinal controller, which controls the ailerons; often resembles an automobile steering wheel but may be a control column.

Since there is complex dependence between total autonomous flight performance cost index and the constraints on the optimization variables (3 P-I-D gains for longitudinal controller, 3 P-I-D gains for lateral controller, and 2 passive morphing parameters of TUAV and 2 active morphing parameters of TUAV, entire of 10 parameters), computation of cost function derivatives with respect to these parameters is not analytically possible.
Besides, the maximum roll angle command generated by autopilot is less than 35[degrees], due to our improvement on lateral controller.
Most existing lateral controllers such as VSC and AFS (active front steering) is based on the assumption that wheel slip angle is less than 4 deg [9-11].
