Abstract:

CONCLUSION Communication Propagation Model Communication propagation model was developed, which include the effects of the path loss, antenna pattern loss, and the orientation of aerial platforms Proposed models were validated through real flight tests Self-tuning Extremum Control for UAVs Location On-lie adaptive gradient estimator was integrated into an expremum control architecture Proposed self-estimating extremum control is robust to even low signal-to-noise ratio signal Effectiveness of the self-tuning optimizer was validated through real time flight tests Applicable for Decentralized Network Coverage Control.
