In this postdoctoral position, we aim to develop a mission manager algorithm for a fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles, and then validate it through simulation tools and experimental validations. This mission planning algorithm must take into account the guidance targets and resources constraints. The main optimization objectives are to minimize the flight time, increase the quality of measurement/mission while avoiding the obstacles (dynamic and static) and other team members. The application context will be dynamic pollution localization and atrcking or surveillance of ships leaving/entering the roadstead. A special attention to be payed on the energetic autonomy of the drones while executing the mission. Optimization algorithms based on mathematical models or game theory can be used, such as MILP, nonlinear, population dynamics, or optimal control.


The recruited junior researcher will have to concieve and develop the mission manager algorithm. She/He will have to be in interaction with the other partners and write the reports of the project in relation with her/his work. Two postdoc positions are available with different application fields. The two recruited people will have to work together.


Knowledge in Control Theory, optimization and Computer Science
Knowledge in ROS will be appreciated
Taste for experimentation
