Unmanned Aerial Vehicle formation flying using Linear Model Predictive Control


A team of three Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) accomplishes a line abreast, triangular and cross formation based on high-level Linear Model Predictive Control (LMPC). All flight tests respect Reynold's rules of flocking, where the UAVs avoid collisions with nearby flockmates, attempt to match velocity of other team members and attempt to stay close to… (More)
