Energy Maps for Long-Range Path Planning for Small- and Micro - UAVs


This paper presents a method for planning trajectories which exploit atmospheric energy to enable long distance, long duration flights by small and micro unmanned aerial vehicles. It introduces the energy map, which computes the minimum total energy required to reach the goal from an arbitrary starting point while accounting for the effect of arbitrary wind… (More)
