Multi-layer Fault-tolerant Drone Network Design for Survey Applications

Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) or drones have numerous applications in different industries. Data-based agriculture is an emerging field that can widely benefit from the drone technology through accurate data collection via drones. However, drones have limitations like short flight time, limited flight range, and they are prone to failure. To mitigate these limitations, we propose using a cooperative group of drones. The resulting parallel operation increases the efficiency and reduces required flight time.
