We address the problem of multi-UAV-based surveillance in complex urban environments with occlusions. The problem consists of controlling the flight of UAVs with on-board cameras so that the coverage and recency of the information about the designated area is maximized. In contrast to the existing work, sensing constraints due to occlusions and UAV motion(More)
This paper describes a new agent framework that fuses an HTN planner, through its underlying conceptual model, with the mental attitudes of the BDI agent architecture, thus exploiting the strengths of each. On the one hand, the practical and proven ability to reason about actions that is the strength of HTN planning fleshes out the option generation(More)
We present an agent-based coordination and planning method for autonomous aerial surveillance of multiple urban areas using a group of fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The goal of the surveillance is to observe a set of ground points of interest within the target areas as often as possible. The method differs from the existing work by explicit(More)
