Remote sensing and actuation using networked unmanned vehicles.


Remote sensing and actuation using networked unmanned vehicles.

Chao, Haiyang and YangQuan Chen.



198 pages



IEEE Press series on systems science and engineering


Chao (mechanical and aerospace engineering, West Virginia U.) and Chen (electrical and computer engineering, Utah State U.) explain how to design and employ unmanned vehicles for remote sensing and distributed control purposes in the current information-rich world. They emphasize environmental and agricultural applications such as surveillance of rivers and reservoirs, wind profiling, monitoring and controlling chemical leaks, and so on. They begin with single aircraft, including real flight experiments with AggieAir, a small and low-cost unmanned aircraft system designed for environmental monitoring missions. Then they turn to ground tests and simulations of networked unmanned vehicles for future sensing and control missions such as formation control, monitoring wind profile, and neutralizing control.
