|Typical small UAV (AscTec Pelican)|
In a joint work with István Fehérvári, Evsen Yanmaz and Wilfried Elmenreich (me), we evolve controllers for a team of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with the task to observe or cover a partially obstructed area.
The respective agents are limited in their sensory inputs to local observations of the environment without the ability to determine their absolute position or those of others. Each agent is equipped with a number of sensors that can detect the presence of other agents, an obstacle and the border of the area.
|Simulation and evaluation model|
The work was presented in a talk at the European Meeting on Cybernetics and Systems Research (EMCSR 2012) in Vienna, Austria. Slides are available via slideshare:
