This project aims to develop
- a simple and easily deployable localisation solution for UAVs to operate in GPS-denied environments with high accuracy and reliability.
- distributed algorithms for an autonomous organisation of UAVs to provide specific coverage of static 3D structures under resource and time constraint.
The research team has developed a localisation
system consisting of multiple anchor nodes, which allow UAVs to seamlessly measure the relative distance and estimate their existing positions. An effort has also been made to develop a control law that regulates the distance between multiple UAVs, which constantly communicate among themselves while exploring in an unknown region.
Indoor flight test with four UAVs Structural health inspection
at a minimum distance of 1.75 m. in a GPSless environment.
Localisation in forest Demonstration of cooperative surveillance,
and clustered environment search and rescue in an urban environment.
