— We present a simple control strategy to visually track a ground target with a fixed wing UAV. The approach uses a lateral guidance law that aims at reaching a given target view angle, which is determined on the basis of simple geometric considerations. Simulations compare our approach with previous contributions in terms of target visibility ratio, and(More)
— We present a control strategy that permits a fixed wing UAV to visually track a ground target. A pursuit-evasion strategy aims at optimizing the visibility of the pursuer UAV after having predicted the best action for the evading target. This is achieved by using two iterative methods that optimise various mission based criteria: obstacle avoidance and(More)
