Abstract

This paper presents a cooperative perception system for multiple heterogeneousUAVs. It considers different kind of sensors: infrared and visual cameras and fire detectors. Thesystem is based on a set of multipurpose low-level image-processing functions includingsegmentation, stabilization of sequences of images and geo-referencing, and it also involves datafusion algorithms for cooperative perception. It has been tested in field experiments that pursuedautonomous multi-UAV cooperative detection, monitoring and measurement of forest fires. Thispaper presents the overall architecture of the perception system, describes some of theimplemented cooperative perception techniques and shows experimental results on automaticforest fire detection and localization with cooperating UAVs.
