A proposed architecture for coordinating first response through small unmanned aerial systems Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2016 IEEE. A system of small unmanned aerial vehicles (SUAV) that can coordinate and assist multiple teams of first responders (FR) is proposed. Initially the system assesses the situation using information available from onboard sensors and human operator input. It then uses this assessment to predict energy, time, and entropy costs for specific combinations of possible responses that are allowed by constraints prescribed by FR. A response that best utilizes the available resources, while ensuring thoroughness as well as time efficiency is selected. This assessment is done in a manner that is time efficient, so as to allow for dynamic operation.
