Three-Dimensional Off-Line Path Planning for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Using Modified Particle Swarm Optimization
This paper addresses the problem of offline path
planning for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in complex threedimensional
environment with obstacles, which is modelled by 3D
Cartesian grid system. Path planning for UAVs require the
computational intelligence methods to move aerial vehicles along the
flight path effectively to target while avoiding obstacles. In this paper
Modified Particle Swarm Optimization (MPSO) algorithm is applied
to generate the optimal collision free 3D flight path for UAV. The
simulations results clearly demonstrate effectiveness of the proposed
algorithm in guiding UAV to the final destination by providing
optimal feasible path quickly and effectively.
