Search Operations Using Quadcopters
Swarm robotics is a novel area for search applications. Victim search & rescue operations with swarm robots
in some disaster scenarios have attracted increasing attention within the field of multi-agent research community. Swarm
robots possess the potential to save lives by providing the rescuers location of victim during the most critical early hours. In
this paper a Search operation has been developed using swarm algorithm and successfully implemented using quadrotors. This
algorithm uses particle swarm optimization for search operations.
