Reconfigurable UAV-Aided 3D Sustainable Surveillance in Classified Air-Spaces
Source of Publication
The recent advancement of smart UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) allows its applicability to wide-range fields covering time-critical reports, emergent item delivery, virtual emotion services and so on. In particular, the surveillance can be supported by a fleet of smart UAVs in cooperation with various system components including sensors, mobile robots, autonomous vehicles and so on. Additionally, it is crucial to consider the reconfigurable capabilities of smart UAVs leveraging for rapid movement in disregarded airspace. In this paper, we introduce a reconfigurable UAV-enabled 3D sustainable surveillance in classified air-spaces to provide energy-efficient monitoring and security surveillance enforcement. We formally define a problem to maximize the reconfigurable UAV-aided sustainable surveillance efficiency with optimal height in 3D classified air-spaces avoiding excessive resource consumption and waste. To solve this issue, two different schemes of Lined-Up and Zig-Zag are proposed. Furthermore, we analyze their performances based on the gained numerical results through expanded simulations with detailed discussions.
