Avoiding collisions at any (low) cost: ADS-B like position broadcast for UAVs [article]

Franco Minucci, Evgenii Vinogradov, Sofie Pollin
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Aircraft use a system called Automatic Dependent System-Broadcast (ADS-B) to continuously broadcast their position and speed but this system is not suitable for small drones because of its cost, complexity  ...  Broadband technologies such as Wi-Fi beacons are more suited for such dense scenarios, and they also offer the benefit of wide availability and low cost.  ...  A full fledged ADS-B transponder for UAV, like the ping1090 by uAvionix [29] , costs 2000 $.  ...

Cost Adaptation for Robust Decentralized Swarm Behaviour [article]

Peter Henderson, Matthew Vertescher, David Meger, Mark Coates
2018 arXiv   pre-print
To allay this problem, we use a meta-learning process -- cost adaptation -- which generates the optimization objective for D-RHC to solve based on a set of human-generated priors (cost and constraint functions  ...  However, combining a set of different goals, costs, and constraints to form an efficient optimization objective for D-RHC can be difficult.  ...  As more agents are added, we see search times decrease as expected, without any collisions.  ...
