Co-ordination and Control of Multiple UAVs

  title={Co-ordination and Control of Multiple UAVs},
  author={Arthur Richards and John Bellingham and Michael Tillerson and Jonathan P. How},
This paper addresses the key problems of autonomous task allocation and trajectory planning for a fleet of UAVs. Task assignment must account for differing UAV capabilities and types of waypoints. Timing constraints, no-fly-zones, and different vehicle dynamics must also be included in the trajectory planning. The overall objective is to minimize the mission completion time for the fleet. The resulting optimization is a highly-coupled combination of the task assignment problem, involving… CONTINUE READING
