Abstract—In our project a complete system is designed and implemented, in which the motion of a quad copter is stably controlled. We focus on developing a cost effective and easy-to-setup. The performance of the controllers is further improved by the use of inertial sensors of the quad copter. The ultimate goal of our project is to monitor radiation exposure in nuclear power plant where human life is endangered and another application of our project is detection of Carbon monoxide which is displayed on LCD display. In this approach, we use a camera for live video coverage for aerial photography. In this project a Quadrotor is built from scratch using commercial components. A microcontroller unit (MCU) is used to control the air craft, with an appropriate control loop that is in corporate with the integration of a gyroscope sensor to provide stability with minimal drift. A Quadrotor has several advantages over other UAV’s types such as; its maneuverability which makes it agile and fast. Since the components used are electrical, explosions and fire- related risks were eliminated. Quadrotors have variety of applications including; search, small packages transportation, military exploration, aerial photography, and scientific exploration.
