PX4 Hardware-in-the-Loop (HITL) Simulation and Visualization with VTOL

This series of examples shows how to use the UAV Toolbox Support Package for PX4® Autopilotsto verify a UAV controller design using a MATLAB® Project template as a reference application. This is done using Hardware-in-the-loop (HITL) simulation on Pixhawk autopilot and simulating the VTOL tilt-rotor UAV Dynamics in Simulink. Then, you run and visualize the VTOL aircraft in Unreal Engine while flying a mission within an urban environment.

The process of simulating and visualizing VTOL consists of these steps:
