  1. 1. 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.

  2. 2. 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

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