The aim of my thesis is to model, control and simulate a quadrocopter, which already has the hardware, but not the suitable software.

Nowadays the fast development of technology enables engineering sciences to help and serve in particular ways with its applications.

The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or commonly known as drones are for instance used for military purposes such as search and rescue operations or surveillance.

Its use is extending on account of the parts of a quadrocopter have become more accessible, moreover looking back to the military, its utilisation can save the lives of pilots.

The computing speed of microcontroller systems is increasing whilst the number of integrated functions is also augmenting, though the physical size of the system is decreasing. This trend allows to realize the complex and elaborate elements of control theory, like nonlinear controlling.

The thesis demonstrates the modelling of the system, the selection of the control modules' type. This thesis also tries to explain the design and simulation of the control modules, as well as the encountered problems and their solutions. Finally mentions the experiences gained while simulating the quadrocopter.
