Hello Friends in this article i am gone to share Coursera Course: Robotics: Aerial Robotics All Weeks Quiz & Assignment Answers with you..
ABOUT THIS COURSE
How can we create agile micro aerial vehicles that are able to operate autonomously in cluttered indoor and outdoor environments? You will gain an introduction to the mechanics of flight and the design of quadrotor flying robots and will be able to develop dynamic models, derive controllers, and synthesize planners for operating in three dimensional environments. You will be exposed to the challenges of using noisy sensors for localization and maneuvering in complex, threedimensional environments. Finally, you will gain insights through seeing real world examples of the possible applications and challenges for the rapidlygrowing drone industry.
Mathematical prerequisites: Students taking this course are expected to have some familiarity with linear algebra, single variable calculus, and differential equations.
Programming prerequisites: Some experience programming with MATLAB or Octave is recommended (we will use MATLAB in this course.) MATLAB will require the use of a 64bit computer.
SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN

WEEK 1 QUIZ ANSWERS
1.1 Quiz Answer
Question 1)
Which of these factors has NOT contributed to the rapidlyincreasing commercial interest in multirotor vehicles?
 Mechanical simplicity
 Inexpensive components
 Ability to hover in mid air
 Efficiency in forward flight
Question 2)
In how many ways can you translate and rotate this robot in free space? Enter your answer as a numeric value (e.g. 1 instead of one).
Answer: 6
Question 3)
How many independent control inputs does the vehicle shown above have?
 6, because there are six motors
 6, because a rigid body has six degrees of freedom
 4, since it is similar to a quadrotor, except with more motors
Question 4)
Based on the lecture content in this course, which of these components are incorporated in commercial products mentioned in lecture such as the DJI Phantom or the Parrot Bebop? (Select all that apply.)
 Mapping
 State estimation
 Autonomous control
 Planning to avoid obstacles
Question 5)
An Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) is an important sensor used in aerial robotics. A typical IMU will contain an accelerometer and a rate gyro. Which of the following information does a robot get from an IMU? (Select all that apply. Choose only quantities that are directly reported by the IMU. Do not include quantities that can be computed from the IMU measurements but cannot be obtained directly. Additional research to find information about IMUs is allowed and encouraged!) (Select all that apply)
 Position
 Linear velocity
 Angular velocity
 Linear acceleration
 Angular acceleration
 Orientation
Question 6)
What does Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) software do? (Select all that applies.)
 Navigates the robot in a cluttered environment
 Controls the robot’s flight through the environment
 Estimates the location of features in the environments
 Causes the robot to avoid obstacles in the environment
 Estimates the position and orientation of the robot with respect to the environment
1.2 Quiz Answer
Question 1)
You observe the response of a system shown in the figure below
What should you do to decrease the oscillations in the response?
 Decrease the proportional gain (Kp)
 Increase the derivative gain (Kv)
 Increase the proportional gain (Kp)
 Increase the integral gain (Ki)
Question 2)
Download the simulation GUI attached below and unzip the contents into a folder of your choice. This is NOT the same GUI that was used in the invideo questions.
Note: If the GUI plots do not show up and you are currently running MATLAB on Chrome, try running the GUI on a different browser (e.g. Firefox, Edge).
Open MATLAB in the directory where the unzipped files are and type “runsim” in the MATLAB Command Window to start the GUI.
Given that the derivative gain K_v=5K
v=5, find the proportional gain K_pK p (up to two decimal places) such that the rise time is less than 1s and overshoot less than 5%.
Answer: 12
Question 3)
Assuming we are using the F550 + E310 + 4 cell battery with a 200g onboard computer and a laser (270g), what is the thrust to weight ratio of the platform? (We use the term “weight” and “thrust” loosely. Except for Thrust/Weight and Propeller, all units are in grams)

Answer: 2.264
Question 4)
Why don’t all the rotors of a quadrotor spin in the same direction?
 Spinning all rotors in the same direction uses more battery power.
 Spinning all rotors in the same direction will cause the robot to constantly rotate.
 Spinning all rotors in the same direction does not allow the quadrotor to fly upside down.
Question 5)
Given that a quadrotor consumes 200 W to carry a mass of 1kg, which component contributes more to the quadrotor’s total power consumption?
A 100g computer that consumes 30W for operation or a 200g laser which consumes 20W for operation?
 The laser.
 The computer.
 Both contribute the same to the power consumption.
