Optimal search strategies where targets are observed at several different angles are found. Targets are assumed to exhibit rectangular symmetry and have a uniformly-distributed orientation. By rectangular symmetry, it is meant that one side of a target is the mirror image of its opposite side. Finding an optimal solution is generally a hard problem.(More)
We provide an optimal strategy for an autonomous vehicle to detect a target in a mine hunting operation or in a search & rescue mission. We assume that the target exhibits mirror symmetry. By mirror symmetry, we mean that the left hand side of a target is the mirror image of the right hand side of the same target, and the probability of detection is(More)
