New energy-efficient algorithm keeps UAV swarms helping longer

(American Institute of Physics) A new energy-efficient data routing algorithm could keep unmanned aerial vehicle swarms flying longer, report an international team of researchers this month in the journal Chaos. UAV swarms are cooperative, intercommunicating groups of UAVs used for a wide and growing variety of civilian and military applications. In disaster response, UAV swarms linked to one or more local base stations act as eyes in the sky, providing first responders with crucial damage and survivor information.
