Software Architecture for Autonomous and Coordinated Navigation of UAV Swarms in Forest and Urban Firefighting

Abstract: Advances in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have led to an exponential increase in their market, thanks to the development of innovative technological solutions aimed at a wide range of applications and services, such as emergencies and those related to fires. In addition, the expansion of this market has been accompanied by the birth and growth of the so-called UAV swarms. Currently, the expansion of these systems is due to their properties in terms of robustness, versatility, and efficiency. Alo… Show more

“…Homogeneous robots, i.e., identical or similar robots, share the same functionalities. Their collaboration enables them to perform tasks by coordinating the robots' actions to achieve specific objectives [5]. Compared to heterogeneous robots, this kind of collaboration may lack the ability to solve tasks in complex scenarios, as demonstrated in [2].…”

“…An important aspect to be mentioned in cooperation between robots is the fact that most of the research in the literature encompasses homogeneous multi-robot systems due to their simplicity and scalability [5,6]. The heterogeneity among robot teams enhances performance in various aspects [6].…”

“…In [154], authors introduced UAV-fog to reduce latency and improve scalability and real-time communication for UAV-IoT-based applications. In another work [155], the authors presented a software architecture framework for autonomous operations of a UAV swarm network to carry out coordinated firefighting operations in dense urban or forest environments. The software architecture includes a set of complementary methods that allow UAVs to communicate autonomously for cooperative navigation and establish a scalable, robust, and secure communication system for firefighting in dense environments.…”

“…Since 2021, a platform has been already made use of to manage a number of UAVs in order to spread the liquid on wildland fires (Ausonio et al, 2021). Nowadays, a lot of teams have been focusing on the frameworks of UAV swarms because a single UAV is not enough for a big fire or wildfire so that more UAVs will be applied in the near future (Ausonio et al, 2021;Innocente & Grasso, 2019;Madridano et al, 2021;Roldán-Gómez et al, 2021).…”
