Summary The main objective of this project is to develop theory and algorithms of computational methods for optimal UAV trajectory planning in obstacle-rich environment. The proposed research is to explore the application of the state-of-the-art in computational optimal control to optimal UAV trajectory planning in a challenging environment with obstacles, a problem that cannot be satisfactorily solved using existing technologies. NPS has expertise in computational optimal control, and the Co-PI from NUS leads a UAV team who builds two fully functional UAV helicopters (HeLion). The mathematical model and control architecture of HeLion will be used as a core example in the problem definition and simulations. The method and simulation results developed at NPS will be delivered to NUS for test in experimentation.
