|Abstract:||A methodology for monitoring the periphery of propagating phenomena with multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) is presented. The methodology utilizes a coordination policy on top of a boundary estimator to decrease the cumulative uncertainty of the monitored periphery. The estimator reconstructs the boundary and improves the knowledge of its current expected value. The strategy to assign UAVs to track a periphery is compared with a policy which considers uncertainties. After the coordination policy is determined, the algorithm is tested in a multi-UAV dynamic simulation. Presented is a detailed numerical analysis of the proposed algorithm and extensive simulation results.|
