Paper accepted in ICRA 2017

Our paper entitled “Multi-Objective UAV Path Planning for Search and Rescue” is accepted for publication in IEEE ICRA 2017.

We propose a multi-objective optimization algorithm to allocate tasks and plan paths for a team of UAVs. Our genetic algorithm approach aims to minimize the mission completion time, which includes the time to find the target (area coverage) and the time to setup a communication path (network connectivity). We evaluate strategies using a data mule, a relay chain, and a novel hybrid approach to communicate with the ground personnel. The algorithm can be tuned to prioritize coverage or connectivity, depending on
the mission demands.
