Autonomous Multi-Drone Aerial Surveys of Antarctic Penguin Colonies

Autonomous Multi-Drone Aerial Surveys of Antarctic Penguin Colonies

Aerial surveys of penguin colonies have been conducted before, usually with helicopters or a single drone. The helicopter method produces great image quality but is expensive, fuel-inefficient and risks disturbing the birds. The single drone survey is time-consuming and - because the drones must be launched from a safe distance, about five kilometers from the colony - difficult to navigate.
