Abstract

For multiple unmanned Aerial Vehicles to collaborate in execution of a mission, a design of the mission, tasks and way points is first developed. Core to the design is determination of proper architecture and practical algorithms for the whole system. The architecture helps in integration of sensing, control, communication and planning while the algorithms are necessary for information sharing, task assignment and conflict resolution. In this paper a review of the principles of cooperative architectures and algorithm is presented. It hopes to extrapolate their importance in design hence provide essential knowledge to designers with interests in multiple vehicle cooperative control.
Keywords— Control Algorithms, Cooperative control architectures, Multi Vehicle Cooperative control.
