Speech Title: Research on Multi-UAV Cooperative Control Based on Consistency Theory and Fuzzy Control

Abstract: Multi-UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) systems have been the focus of research in the military field at home and abroad in recent years. UAV combat systems have also evolved from “single-platform remote control operations” to “multi-UAV autonomous cluster operations”, supporting combat systems with the characteristics of coordination, autonomy, flexibility under uncertain tasks and environments. The report briefly introduces the development of UAVs, UAV system models, UAV autonomy levels, and UAV cooperation issues. The cooperative control principle based on consistency theory and fuzzy control is given, the cooperative control of formation and obstacle avoidance is introduced, and the cooperative control algorithm based on virtual force is constructed. A brief description of the next research plan is given.

Keyword: Multi-UAV; Cooperative control; Consistency; Fuzzy control; Formation and obstacle avoidance
