In this paper a real-time cooperative path decision algorithm for UAV surveillance is proposed. The surveillance mission involves multiple competing objectives. To handle these competing objectives, a layered decision framework is proposed, in which different objectives are deemed relevant at different decision layers depending on their priorities. Compared to previous work, in which multiple objectives are integrated into a single global objective function, this layered decision framework… CONTINUE READING
