Paper Abstract

We illustrate an approach for planning UAV sensing actions in urban or constrained domains. We plan and optimize a collection strategy for a target of interest using Design Sheet, a numeric/symbolic algebraic constraint propagation package. Once a set of sensing plans have been developed, we use a probabilistic roadmap planning algorithm to plan a route for a fixed wing UAV through urban terrain to collect that information. This planner has several novel features to improve performance for urban domains.
