    Project Title:

    Drones Reordering in Swarm-based Services

    Project Description:

    Drone swarms used for delivery may fly in different formations for energy conservation purposes. Depending on the wind direction, a swarm may undertake different fly formations to reduce drag forces that consume energy. The reordering of swarm members is a common behaviour that occurs in nature (eg. bird flocks) to conserve energy. A swarm member’s energy consumption is typically determined by its position in a formation. We propose reordering a drone swarm formation to reduce the load on the most energyconsuming positions and efficiently distribute energy use. In this project, we use real drones to learn the effect of reordering a formation on the energy consumption through data collection and analysis. Machine learning algorithms would be implemented to predict the optimal reordering mechanism given the different intrinsic (eg. payload and battery capacity) and extrinsic constraints (eg. wind conditions).
