Cooperative control of mobile sensor platforms in dynamic environments
We develop guidance algorithms to control mobile sensor platforms, for both centralized and decentralized settings, in dynamic environments for various applications. More precisely, we develop control algorithms for the following mobile sensor platforms: unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with on-board sensors for multitarget tracking, autonomous amphibious vehicles for flood-rescue operations, and directional sensors (e.g., surveillance cameras) for maximizing an information-gain-based objective function. The following is a brief description of each of the above-mentioned guidance control algorithms. ...
