The focus of this talk will be autonomous control technologies and cooperative control techniques for micro air vehicles (< five foot wingspan). An overview will be given of autopilot hardware and software developed at BYU, as well as successful flight demonstrations. Real-time path planning, trajectory generation, collision avoidance, and vision guided navigation algorithms will be discussed. Cooperative control techniques and their applicability to micro air vehicles, with a focus on application to cooperative forest fire monitoring, persistent surveillance, and multiple vehicle consensus will be presented.
