Mobility Strategies based on Virtual Forces for Swarms of Autonomous UAVs in Constrained Environments

Ema Falomir, Serge Chaumette, Gilles Guerrini

Abstract

The usage of autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has recently become a major question. For wide area surveillance missions, a swarm of UAVs can be much more efficient than a single vehicle. In this case, several aircrafts cooperate in order to fulfill a mission while avoiding collisions between each other and with obstacles. This article proposes original distributed mobility strategies for autonomous swarms of UAVs, the goal of which is to fulfill a surveillance mission. Our work is based on virtual forces and our approach allows narrow areas crossing that require a compact formation of the autonomous swarm.
