[Paparazzi-devel] Multiple UAVs

Hi there !

I follow this list for few weeks now and I really like the community spirit here. I'm a developer (and more projet manager now) and also a private pilot, but I'm quite new to the drone thing. I try to learn quickly, which is somewhat possible thanks to your huge wiki ! And I have to, because I have quite a big project : I want to make lot of fixed wings fly together!

I tested differents open source ground station and it appears none is really advanced. Paparazzi core is multi uav oriented, which makes it a great candidate. I read the limit is about 255.

But I would like to have your feedback on this :

1. what are the other contraints? (radio, ground management, take off, landing)

2. anti collision : the module currently existing based on tcas computed on the ground is limited. Is there any work in progress about it? (maybe integrating last works of MIT about drones finding a path in a forest for exemple, if possible )

3. hmi : the ground station is quite geek oriented. What are the option to make it more user friendly, so multiple operators could manage uav groups ?

4. multiple uav management : I like the inflight updatable waypoints, is it possible for multiple uav to use the same wp ? (1 wp moved, n uav updated?)

OK, it seems enough for a first message.

Looking forward to reading you,
