Multi-UAV Surveillance with Minimum Information Idleness and Latency Constraints

Jurgen Scherer, Bernhard Rinner
2020 IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters  
We discuss surveillance with multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) that minimize information idleness (the lag between the start of the mission and the moment when the data captured at a sensing location  ...  In our approach, multiple UAVs cooperatively transport the data in a store-and-forward fashion along minimum latency paths (MLPs) to guarantee data delivery within a predefined latency bound.  ...  This is different from our previous work on persistent multi-UAV/robot surveillance where permanent [25] , [27] or intermittent [26] connectivity to the BS was considered.  ...
