  1. 1. Increasing Autonomy of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Through the Use of Imaging Sensors

    Author : Piotr Rudol; Andrzej Szalas; Pascual Campoy; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; UAV; UAS; UAV autonomy; human-body detection; color-thermal image fusion; vehicle tracking; geolocation; UAV indoor navigation;

    Abstract : The range of missions performed by Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) has been steadily growing in the past decades thanks to continued development in several disciplines. The goal of increasing the autonomy of UAS's is widening the range of tasks which can be carried out without, or with minimal, external help. READ MORE

  2. 2. Autonomous and Cooperative Landings Using Model Predictive Control

    Author : Linnea Persson; Bo Wahlberg; Tor Arne Johansen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cooperative control; autonomous landings; rendezvous; UAV; drone; USV; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Cooperation is increasingly being applied in the control of interconnected multi-agent systems, and it introduces many benefits. In particular, cooperation can improve the efficiency of many types of missions, and adds flexibility and robustness against external disturbances or unknown obstacles. READ MORE

  3. 3. Selected Aspects of Navigation and Path Planning in Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    Author : Mariusz Wzorek; Andrzej Szałas; Jacek Malec; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Path planning; motion planning; autonomous Unmanned Aircraft Systems UAS ; Hierarchical Concurrent State Machines HCSM ; UAV;

    Abstract : Unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) are an important future technology with early generations already being used in many areas of application encompassing both military and civilian domains. This thesis proposes a number of integration techniques for combining control-based navigation with more abstract path planning functionality for UASs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Navigation Functionalities for an Autonomous UAV Helicopter

    Author : Gianpaolo Conte; Patrick Doherty; Marconi Lorenzo; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Unmanned Aerial Vehicle; Control System; Path Following; Path Planning; Sensor Fusion; Vision Based Landing; Kalman Filter; Real-Time; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis was written during the WITAS UAV Project where one of the goals has been the development of a software/hardware architecture for an unmanned autonomous helicopter, in addition to autonomous functionalities required for complex mission scenarios. The algorithms developed here have been tested on an unmanned helicopter platform developed by Yamaha Motor Company called the RMAX. READ MORE

  5. 5. Complex Task Allocation for Delegation : From Theory to Practice

    Author : David Landén; Patrick Doherty; Silvia Coradeschi; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Multi-agent systems; task allocation; distributed constraint satisfaction; delegation; UAV; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The problem of determining who should do what given a set of tasks and a set of agents is called the task allocation problem. The problem occurs in many multi-agent system applications where a workload of tasks should be shared by a number of agents. READ MORE
