One challenge facing coordination and deployment of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) today is the amount of human involvement needed to carry out a successful mission. Currently, control and coordination of UAVs typically ...
Optimal Multi-UAV Convoy Protection
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04)
In this paper, we study time-optimal trajectories for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to provide convoy protection to a group of stationary ground vehicles. The UAVs are modelled as Dubins vehicles flying at a constant ...
An Optimal Timing Approach to Controlling Multiple UAVs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-06)
In this paper we address the problem of having a single operator control a team of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This is achieved by having the team execute a leader-follower coordinated behavior, where the leader ...
