  1. 1. Distance and orientation-based formation control of UAVs and coordination with UGVs

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för reglerteknik

    Author : Stevedan Ogochukwu Omodolor; [2022]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Nowadays, research in autonomous drones has increased thanks to the advancement of drone technology. Nevertheless, there are still limitations when performing specific missions due to flight duration, computational load and mission complexity. This thesis investigates ways to solve this problem by taking advantage of multiple UAVs and UGVs. READ MORE

  2. 2. GPS-Free UAV Geo-Localization Using a Reference 3D Database

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för systemteknik

    Author : Justus Karlsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Deep Learning; Machine Learning; ML; AI; UAV; GPS-Free; CNN; 3D CNN; GCNN; 3D Database; geolocalization; geo-localization; georegistration; Hidden Markov Model; HMM; satellite; satellite database; Batch-Hard; triplet loss; PyTorch Geometric;

    Abstract : The goal of this thesis has been global geolocalization using only visual input and a 3D database for reference. In recent years Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have seen huge success in the task of classifying images. The flattened tensors at the final layers of a CNN can be viewed as vectors describing different input image features. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Positioning System for Landing a UAV on a UGV in a GNSS-Denied Scenario

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för systemteknik

    Author : Tim Wiik; [2022]
    Keywords : Sensor fusion; UAV; UGV; NIR-LED; Extended kalman filter; Unmanned Aerial Vehicle; Unmanned Ground Vehicle; Autonomous Landing; GNSS-denied Scenario;

    Abstract : A system of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) collaborating with an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) for use in for example surveillance, reconnaissance, transport and target acquisition is studied. The project investigates the problem of estimating the relative position, velocity and orientation between the UAV and the UGV required to autonomously land the UAV on the UGV during movement.

  4. 4. Intelligent Drone Swarms : Motion planning and safe collision avoidance control of autonomous drone swarms

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för systemteknik

    Author : Hilding Gunnarsson; Adam Åsbrink; [2022]
    Keywords : Artificial Potential Field APF ; Control Barrier Function CBF ; Leader Follower control; Micro Aerial Vehicle MAV ; Optimal motion planning;

    Abstract : The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), so-called drones, has been growingrapidly in the last decade. Today, they are used for, among other things, monitoring missions and inspections of places that are difficult for people to access. Toefficiently and robustly execute these types of missions, a swarm of drones maybe used, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Autonomous Landing of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle on an Unmanned Ground Vehicle using Model Predictive Control

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för systemteknik

    Author : Emil Boström; Erik Börjesson; [2022]
    Keywords : Model predictive control; MPC; Unmanned aerial vehicle; UAV; Unmanned ground vehicle; UGV; Path planning; Vehicle dynamics; Autonomous systems; Autonomous landing; Quadcopter; Gazebo; ROS;

    Abstract : The research on autonomous vehicles, and more specifically cooperation between autonomous vehicles, has become a prominent research field during the last cou- ple of decades. One example is the combination of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) together with an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV). READ MORE
