Relative localization (RL) is essential for the successful operation of micro air vehicle (MAV) swarms. Achieving accurate 3-D RL in infrastructure-free and GPS-denied environments with only distance information is a challenging problem that has not been satisfactorily solved. In this work, based on the range-based peer-to-peer RL using the...

Distributed formation control has received increasing attention in multiagent systems. Maintaining certain geometry in space is advantageous in many applications such as space interferometry and underwater sensing. At present, there is a variety of distributed solutions for agents to converge to desired formations and track a series of...

Relative localization is a key capability for autonomous robot swarms, and it is a substantial challenge, especially for small flying robots, as they are extremely restricted in terms of sensors and processing while other robots may be located anywhere around them in three-dimensional space. In this article, we generalize wireless ranging...

In the last decade, the research field of aerial swarms has grown at a rapid pace. These multi-robot systems possess desirable abilities including mobility in 3D spaces, efficient task execution in parallel, and redundant characteristics for fault tolerance. Many applications with multiple flying robots have already been demonstrated, such as...

A high-level neural controller for leader-follower flight is presented. State of the art range-based relative localization schemes that rely exclusively on onboard sensors present an additional challenge to the leader-follower control problem since they restrict the flight conditions that guarantee observability. This novel controller was...

We present a range-based solution for indoor relative localization by micro air vehicles (MAVs), achieving sufficient accuracy for leader–follower flight. Moving forward from previous work, we removed the dependency on a common heading measurement by the MAVs, making the relative localization accuracy independent of magnetometer readings. We...

In this paper a range-based relative localization solution is proposed and demonstrated in practice. The approach is based on wireless range measurements between robots, along with the communication of their velocities, accelerations, yaw rates, and height. It can be implemented on many robotic platforms without the need for dedicated sensors....

To avoid collisions, Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) flying in teams require estimates of their relative locations, preferably with minimal mass and processing burden. We present a relative localization method where MAVs need only to communicate with each other using their wireless transceiver. The MAVs exchange on-board states (velocity, height,...

A current limitation of using Micro Air Vehicles in teams is the high risk of collisions between members. Knowledge of relative location is needed in order to perform evasive maneuvers from such collisions. We propose an on-board Bluetooth-based relative localization scheme. Bluetooth is a light-weight and energy efficient communication...
