Intercepting a Target with Sensor Swarms
MetadataShow full item record
This paper introduces a new coordination method to intercept a mobile target in urban areas with a team of sensor platforms. The task is to intercept the target before it leaves the area. The approach combines algorithmic concepts from ant colony and particle swarm optimization in order to bias the search and to spread the team in the search area. The algorithms introduced are tested in simulation experiments on grids. The success probabilities measured are relatively high for most parameter combinations, and the target is intercepted in roughly half the simulation time on average. Furthermore, the experiments reveal robust behavior with regard to the parameter setting.
