Which UAV platform (quadcopter) should I use to develop and implement outdoor decentralized swarm motion control algorithms? I need a customizable platform so that I can integrate other required hardware and software. By implementing swarm motion control first I want to achieve following:- 1. Formation Flight (make formation) 2. Dynamic formation 3. Object Tracking 4. Onboard image processing
Most important communication between UAVs.
For software platform, I am thinking to use ROS for simulation and px4 for UAVs. Can I simulate multiple UAVs with decentralized control with ROS integrated with px4?
Please suggest which hardware platform should I use among: -
