Planning to Monitor Wildfires with a Fleet of UAVs

Rafael Bailon-Ruiz

We present an approach to plan trajectories for a fleet of fixed-wing UAVs to observe a wildfire evolving over time. Realistic models of the terrain, of the fire propagation process, and of the UAVs are exploited, together with a model of the wind. The approach tailors a generic Variable Neighborhood Search method to these models and associated constraints. Simulation results show ability to plan observation trajectories for a small fleet of UAVs, and to update the plans when new information on the fire are incorporated in the fire model.
