## Inertial Frame and Body Frame

Inertial Frame

denotes the position of the center of mass of the quadrotor in A. -The inertial coordinate A system is an earth xed coordinate system with origin at the dened home location.

Body Frame

-The origin of the vehicle frame B is at the center of mass of the quadrotor.

## -On the Inertial frame,

-On the rotated body frame,

## -The projections of and on the inertial frame are given by

respectively . -Since both, the projections and it follows that are expressed on the Inertial frame,

## -Define the matrix

the above matrix is the so called rotation matrix, which is nonlinear mapping that rotates any vector from the inertial frame to the body frame and vice versa, the yaw angle - The mapping is an orthonormal matrix , i.e.,

Inertial Frame

-Newtons second law only applies to inertial systems. -Newtons law applied to the translational motion is Body Frame

Inertial Frame

-Coriolis equation: given a vector that rotates with respect to B, its time derivative w.r.t. A can be computed as follows

Body Frame

where denotes the time derivative of with respect to the inertial-frame and with respect to the body-frame. -Using the above coriolis equation and the rotation matrix , the translational and rotational motion equations can be rewritten as

the above equations are alternative forms of the movement equations. In the literature, they use both of them arbitrarily.
