UAV Formation Control: Theory and Application

Anderson, Brian; Fidan, Baris; Yu, Changbin (Brad); Van der Walle, Dirk


Unmanned airborne vehicles (UAVs) are finding use in military operations and starting to find use in civilian operations. UAVs often fly in formation, meaning that the distances between individual pairs of UAVs stay fixed, and the formation of UAVs in a sense moves as a rigid entity. In order to maintain the shape of a formation, it is enough to maintain the distance between a certain number of the agent pairs; this will result in the distance between all pairs being constant. We describe how...[Show more]
