Abstract [en]

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) equipped with remote visual sensing can be used in wide range of applications. However, guaranteeing the full coverage of the area and translating this coverage in a path planning problem, it is a quite challenging task. Thus, in this article a well-known and well-investigated family of hard optimization problems, covering a polygonal region (target area) with fixed size rectangles (camera frustrum), is studied. The problem is formulated mathematically and solved using metaheuristic optimization algorithms. The proposed novel algorithmic scheme requires an a priori 2D model of the target area, while it tries to maximize the coverage with a minimum number of fixed size rectangles. Finally, multiple simulation results are presented that prove the efficacy of the proposed scheme
