Goals

  • Create an algorithm to describe the movement of a nanosatellite around a larger satellite. The micro-inspector must be able to launch safely, move autonomously from point to point, and maintain a safe distance from the satellite being inspected.
  • Test the algorithm using increasingly more complex models. The algorithm will be tested in Simulink, Gazebo, and the testbed.

Objectives

  • Finish model in Simulink by Week 3
  • Finish model in Gazebo by Week 6
  • Finish testing on testbed by Week 10

Technical Challenges

  • Using Gazebo
  • Using Linux
  • Programming in C++ and MATLAB
  • Using Simulink
  • Learning about controls

Approach

  • Go through MATLAB and C++ tutorials
  • Learn more about Gazebo and find out if anyone has used Gazebo to model spacecraft
  • Read online controls textbook
  • Use Linux computers as often as possible
