Paper accepted in ACM MobiSys Workshop-DroNet 2015

Our paper “An Autonomous Multi-UAV System for Search and Rescue,” is accepted in ACM MobiSys Workshop DroNet 2015 (Workshop on Micro Aerial Vehicle Networks, Systems, and Applications for Civilian Use).

This paper proposes and evaluates the modular architecture of the autonomous unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) system for search and rescue missions demonstrated here. The system is implemented in the Robot Operating System (ROS) and is capable of providing a real-time video stream from a UAV to one or more base stations using a wireless communications infrastructure. The system supports a heterogeneous set of UAVs and camera sensors.
