Documentation Status

Simulation of multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehicles in python.

This package provides an object-oriented interface for modeling and simulating motors, propellers, and airframe of a UAV. Additionally, an OpenAI gym-compatible environment is provided for Reinforcement Learning experiments.

See the Demo jupyter notebook in the repository for a walkthrough.

Install from the Python Package Index (PyPI):

pip install multirotor

Or, clone repository and install for development. This will allow you to change the code of the package so the changes show up when you import multirotor in other projects.

git clone
cd multirotor
pip install -e .

# to also install dependencies for building package/documentation
pip install -e .[DEV]
pip install -r docs/requirements.txt

Code organization

The following main classes are available in the code. For simulating the vehicle:
