Swarming involves the cooperation of single autonomous units, with strong communication and synchronization among them. Varying from two UAVs playing ball, to a team of UAVs observing an disaster area, up to a fleet of UAVs imitating a fireworks at an art festival. This field of research opens new dimensions in the usability of AscTec UAVs.

Example configuration: Swarm

  • Several AscTec Hummingbirds
  • Wireless datalink XBee Pro
  • Ground PC with position control
    and communication algorithms
