Mobility Strategies based on Virtual Forces for Swarms of Autonomous UAVs in Constrained Environments

Abstract : The usage of autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has recently become a major question. For wide area surveillance missions, a swarm of UAVs can be much more efficient than a single vehicle. In this case, several aircrafts cooperate in order to fulfill a mission while avoiding collisions between each other and with obstacles. This article proposes original distributed mobility strategies for autonomous swarms of UAVs, the goal of which is to fulfill a surveillance mission. Our work is based on virtual forces and our approach allows narrow areas crossing that require a compact formation of the autonomous swarm.
