Robust Communications for Autonomous Swarms

Fall 2015

Presents concepts, principles, and algorithms of swarm behaviors of various biological systems and applies them to mechanical systems in the physical world.   Options for communicating among nodes in a swarm are presented as well as the advantages of multiple antenna systems.  Topics covered includes basic swarm behaviors and modeling, communication techniques, adaptive signal processing, information security/integrity, sensors, single and multi-rotor airborne platforms, embedded system development, and multiple antenna systems.  Students define a mission, develop the appropriate algorithms, test them in an open-source development environment, and instantiate them on a UAV platform.
