Online Path Planning for UAV Using an Improved Differential Evolution Algorithm

Abstract

This paper presents a 3D online path planning algorithm for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flying in partially known hostile environment. In order to provide a smooth fight route for UAV, the algorithm adopts B-Spline curve to describe UAV’s path whose control points are optimized by an improved differential evolution algorithm. The planner gradually… (More)
