In this paper, we present a new approach that is able to efficiently and fully-autonomously navigate a team of Unmanned Aerial or Underwater Vehicles (UAUV's) when deployed in exploration of unknown static and dynamic environments towards providing accurate static/dynamic maps of the environment. Additionally to achieving to efficiently and fully-autonomously navigate the UAUV team, the proposed approach possesses certain advantages such as its extremely computational simplicity and scalability… CONTINUE READING
