Abstract

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) swarm control platforms have many applications in rescue, commercial, and government fields. The goal of this ongoing project is to construct a space solely dedicated to investigating this important discipline through the control of quadrotor clusters (groups of quadrotor UAVs). This space is equipped with a motion capture system, test control station, and numerous quadrotor UAVs. The test control station utilizes MATLAB-Simulink for data management and control law development. A significant benefit to this construction is its seamless ability to test researchers' control law in a 'plug and play' manner, as Simulink is widely used in the controls community. To date, the testbed includes a vehicle enclosure, multiple quadrotor agents, the motion capture system, and a ground station. Current and future work includes the final integration of these components and experimental data collection.
