Paper on swarms of drones is accepted in IEEE LARS-SBR

The article “Autonomous and Collective Intelligence for UAV Swarm in Target Search Scenario” has been accepted for the IEEE LARS/SBR 2021 (Latin American Robotics Symposium/Brazilian Robotics Symposium).

The paper addresses the application of a swarm of drones with autonomous intelligence in a search scenario for unknown targets. The swarm of UAVs applies AI techniques to obtain autonomous and distributed intelligence for cooperative search. Results showed an improvement in the efficiency of the swarm when applying distributed decision-making heuristics.

The article was one of the results obtained by students of the course Simulation of Drones and Applications (SC-249) of the Graduate Program on Electronics and Computer Engineering at the Aeronautics Institute of Technology.
