Keywords: uav, formation, reconfiguration, collision, avoidance
Guidance law based on differential geometry is proposed for UAV formation flight and collision avoidance. Differential geometry based guidance strategy makes it possible for multiple UAVs to avoid dynamic obstacles and keep formation simultaneously. Formation reconfiguration strategy and decision making process are proposed as well.
