The SUAAVE project is funded by EPSRC under the WINES wireless networking initiative to consider issues of multiple aerial vehicles communicating and collaborating in performing tasks, and involves teams from University College London, University of Ulster, and the University of Oxford. The focus of SUAAVE lies in the creation and control of swarms of UAVs that are individually autonomous (i.e. not under the direct real-time control of a human) but that collaboratively self-organise: to sense the environment in the most efficient way possible; to respond to node failures; and to report their findings to a base station on the ground. As the focus is on developing algorithms, rather than rugged hardware, the authors are using small off-the-shelf electric quad-rotor vehicles with payloads of a few hundred grams.
