Collaborating unmanned aerial vehicles can efficiently perform surveillance, mapping, and other tasks without human risk. Currently deployed unmanned aerial vehicles demonstrate a need for increased autonomy and cooperation. We present a software architecture and UAV hardware platform that have demonstrated single-user control of a fleet of aircraft, distributed task assignment, and vision-based navigation. This is the only such system known to the authors to have demonstrated in-the-air task… CONTINUE READING
