Dual-rotor aerospace experiment with reconfigurable dynamic components for mechatroncis and controls exploration.

The Quanser AERO is a fully integrated lab experiment, designed for teaching mechatronics and control concepts at the undergraduate level, as well as for advanced aerospace research applications.

  Designed for mechatronics and control applications

Reconfigurable for various aerospace systems, from 1 DOF attitude control and 2 DOF helicopter to half-quadrotor. Integrating Quanser-developed QFLEX 2 computing interface technology, the Quanser AERO offers flexibility in lab configurations, using a PC, or microcontrollers, such as NI myRIO, Arduino and Raspberry Pi. 

  • Reconfigurable 1 and 2 DOF applications
  • Computer interfacing options for multidiscipline use

 Compact, highliy responsive system

The Quanser AERO' is a light-weight dual propeller system capable of highly responsive movements. The compact base includes a built-in amplifier with an integrated current sensor, built-in data acquisition device, and an interchangeable QFLEX 2 interface panel. The experiment comes with additional propellers to illustrate the efficiency of different propeller designs and effects of cross-coupling.

  • Equiped with optical encoders, current and voltage sensors
  • Slip ring allows for continuous 360° yaw rotation
  • Inertial measurement unit (IMU) with accelerometer and gyroscope

 QFLEX technology for easy I/O configurations

The Quanser AERO is available with two different, easily interchangeable interface panels:

  • USB QFLEX panel: interfaces to Quanser’s control software running on your lab’s PC via a standard USB 2.0 connection. Can be used with MATLAB®/ Simulink® and Quanser QUARC software, or with LabVIEW™ using the Quanser RCP software. With the USB version of the experiment, you can take full advantage of the comprehensive course materials and lab experiments for your controls-based courses and projects.
  • Embedded QFLEX panel: interfaces to your microcontroller (not included) via SPI connection. No additional software required. This option is ideal to expose students to various microcontroller techniques, as well as for capstone projects in mechatronics, control, or other similar programs.

Quanser AERO Features

Low cost teaching platform for mechatronics and controls 

The Quanser QUBE™-Servo 2 is a fully integrated, modular servomotor lab experiment designed for teaching mechatronics and control concepts at the undergraduate level.

 Affordable solution for undergraduate labs

The QUBE-Servo 2 consists of a DC motor with an optical encoder, providing position and velocity feedback, a built-in amplifier with integrated current sensor, a data acquisition device, and a QFLEX 2 computing interface. Two modules - inertia disk and pendulum - are included with ABET aligned curriculum. You can design and 3D print your own add-on modules to expand the scope of the experiment, or to create an engaging student projects. User-controllable tri-color LED strip can be programed to indicate state, power, or other control performance parameters.

  • Affordable, high quality integrated experiment with built in optical encoder, amplifier with current sensor, and data acquisition device
  • Tool-less quick connect interface for efficient modular changes
  • Programmable LED strip
