Fixed-Wing UAV Formation Control Design With Collision Avoidance Based on an Improved Artificial Potential Field
This paper proposes a collision avoidance control algorithm based on the virtual structure and the “leader–follower” control strategy in 3-D space that can avoid the obstacle effectively and then track the motion target and provide a new concept for multi-UAV formation avoidance of an obstacle.
Path Planning for Multi-UAV Formation
An efficient and feasible algorithm for the path planning problem of the multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (multi-UAVs) formation in a known and realistic environment and has a good path planning ability for the single UAV and the all UAVs formation.
Consensus-based cooperative formation control with collision avoidance for a multi-UAV system
This paper describes how the cooperatively controlled UAVs avoid collisions while they are flying to desired position for formation, and proposes a consensus-based cooperative formation control strategy with collision-avoidance capability for a group of multiple unmanned aerial vehicles.
A survey on vision-based UAV navigation
This article is to present a comprehensive literature review of the vision-based methods for UAV navigation, specifically on visual localization and mapping, obstacle avoidance and path planning, which compose the essential parts of visual navigation.
Leader-follower formation control using artificial potential functions: A kinematic approach
This paper presents a novel formation control technique of a group of differentially driven wheeled mobile robots employing artificial potential field based navigation and leader-follower formation
Guaranteeing persistent feasibility of model predictive motion planning for autonomous vehicles
The conditions that guarantee persistent feasibility of a model predictive motion planning scheme are studied and two approaches to compute control invariant sets for the motion planning problem, the linearization-convexification approach and the brute-force search approach.
Cooperative Encirclement Control for a Group of Targets by Decentralized Robots with Collision Avoidance
An online collision avoidance algorithm combining the sub-targets and Artificial Potential Fields (APF) approaches was proposed, which ensures that the paths of robots are collision-free.
UAV-ReID: A Benchmark on Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Re-identification
A benchmark study is conducted by extensively evaluating different Re-ID deep learning based approaches and their variants, spanning both convolutional and transformer architectures, to facilitate the development of machine learning solutions in multi-camera environments.
