Simulation framework for testing performance of multi-UAV missions

Authors:   E. Santana, R. Moreno, C. Sánchez, M. Ŕ. Piera


In this paper, we present a Software-in-the-Loop simulation framework for multi-UAV systems which allows test the implementation of cooperation algorithms, sense & avoid algorithms, etc., without taking any risk. In our proposed framework, we can test the correct execution of algorithms, and since our setup is inherently multi-UAV, we can also test the communication flow among the vehicles. The simulation framework has been developed as a functional extension of Mission Planner, open source software aimed to plan, control and analyze data from missions of a single UAV driven by Ardupilot flight controllers.
