Notes

Abstract: Currently when a person gets lost a rescue team is called into action to utilize a wide range of terrain specific methods and tools to help locate the missing person. This current method is problematic for several reasons, namely high costs and the increased risk of the rescuers becoming rescuees. Quadcopters are ideal for simulating a network of UAVs in a search and rescue situation because they can be outfitted with a range of situation specific sensors, are easily mobilized, and can reduce the risk to the rescuers. The Swarm-Copters system utilizes: multiple sensors to assist with flight, a camera system to provide a real-time view of the search area, and a centralized base station to control the search and rescue operation. The system was developed using a swarm style approach which allows for two or more autonomous quadcopters to work together in completing a scan of a search grid.
