Project Name: unmanned aerial vehicle outdoor collaborative handling project of Nankai University

Site: Outdoor

Key words: UAV cluster collaborative control


  Project background

The application research of multi-agent theory began in the mid-1980s, and has shown a significant growth trend in recent years. Especially in the past 10 years, the theory and technology of agents and multi-agent systems have frequently appeared in the design of a large number of application systems. At present, multi-agent systems have been widely used in the fields of aircraft formation, sensor networks, data fusion, multi machine collaborative equipment, parallel computing, multi robot cooperative control, network resource allocation and so on. The research on multi-agent collaborative technology has become a hot spot in the field of artificial intelligence. The teachers in the laboratory of Nankai University verified the cooperative handling flight algorithm in the outdoor scene based on the UAV cluster research and development platform of the flight lab.
