Swarm control of vehicles – Implant

The invention relates to a system and a method for the coordinated execution of a mission consisting of a sum or sequence of sub-missions, comprising a plurality of vehicles, each vehicle having a control unit designed to control a propulsion unit for autonomous movement of the vehicle in space is.

Systems are known from the prior art for carrying out a monitoring mission, in which a certain, usually relatively small number of highly complex and specialized autonomous aircraft, so-called “drones”, which are also known in the English as “unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)” be controlled by a central control unit on the ground. For the UAVs to be able to carry the necessary monitoring equipment, especially color and infrared cameras, they must be correspondingly large and powerful. Likewise, wireless controllability over a certain distance requires correspondingly high-performance communication and communication.
