Project Title: An Approach to UAV Subswarm Communication for Geospacial Cooperative Search

Faculty Sponsor: Mark Allison

Department: Computer Science



Project Description: This project seeks to investigate an approach to autonomous drone cooperation in swarms. The application context is search and rescue which incorporates aspects of pattern recognition and analysis. Specifically we will be simulating the approach utilizing a agent -based platform and collecting data.

Student Tasks & Responsibilities:  Student will be required to program simulations and collect data for analysis.

Minimum Student Qualifications: Student should be able to quickly absorb new concepts and be able to program in a Object Oriented language (preferably java). Student should also understand how to incorporate an API.
