A Vision-based Quadrotor Swarm for the participation in the 2013 International Micro Air Vehicle Competition (Toulouse, France)

We present a completely autonomous solution to participate in the 2013 International Micro Air Vehicle Indoor Flight Competition (IMAV2013). Our proposal is a modular multi-robot swarm architecture, based on the Robot Operating System (ROS) software framework, where the only information shared among swarm agents is each robot's position. In order to present a completely visual-based solution the localization problem is simplified by the usage of visual markers.

A System for the Design and Development of Vision-based Multi-robot Quadrotor Swarms

We present a cost-effective framework for the prototyping of vision-based quadrotor multi-robot systems, which core characteristics are: modularity, compatibility with different platforms and being flight-proven. The framework is fully operative and was demonstrated with the participation in the 2013 International Micro Air Vehicle Indoor Flight Competition (Toulouse, France) where it was awarded with the First Prize in the Indoors Autonomy Challenge.
