The demand for autonomous decision-making algorithms to support automated air confrontation as a solution for relative ground distance control for unmanned vehicles. In this paper, it is shown Author: Victor M. Becerra. Abstract. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is a type of autonomous vehicle for which energy efficient path planning is a crucial issue. The use of UAV has been increased to replace humans in performing risky missions at adversarial environments and thus, the requirement of path planning with efficient energy consumption is by: 3. The objective of this book is to prepare the reader to do research in the exciting and rapidly developing field of autonomous navigation, guidance, and control of unmanned air vehicles. The focus is on the design of the software algorithms required for autonomous and semi-autonomous flight. To work in this area, researchers must be familiar.
The dynamics of air vehicles add additional complexity to the autonomous control problem, while the design of a fleet of Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) for desirable system performance involves. We present and discuss a modular flight control system suitable for video tracking natural structures with Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs), like rivers, roads or canals. The control system is modeled in the framework of hybrid automata, where each state corresponds to different control by: 7.
