Collision Avoidance on UAV Using Neural Network Pipelines and Flow Clustering Techniques
Drone technology undergoes continuous advancement, with safety standards consistently at the forefront of each progression. A fundamental component of integrating drones into urban landscapes is their capacity to navigate obstacles, ultimately minimizing collisions and ensuring seamless operations. The UAV industry is actively proposing solutions to mitigate potential hazards, and we would like to present our research contribution – solution in this critical matter.

Delving Into the Challenge- Why is collision avoidance so crucial?

Airborne drones face numerous challenges, particularly in navigating moving objects, which demand a sophisticated approach for effective resolution. Objects such as other UAVs, debris, or birds can pose significant obstacles, requiring swift detection to avert collisions and mitigate potentially severe accidents. Industries necessitating precise aerial operations and navigating complex environments rely heavily on collision avoidance systems. For instance, operations conducted within congested construction sites demand stringent safety measures to ensure accident-free aerial inspections. Similarly, drone delivery services, particularly in densely populated urban areas with congested airspace, require advanced safety protocols to operate safely and efficiently.

Current Measures to Address Collision Risks

Presently, technological solutions and regulatory measures have notably mitigated the risk of collision in UAVs. Nonetheless, they might not be entirely sufficient to ensure the highest safety standards. Factors like sensor accuracy, the velocity of moving objects, and human errors during piloting, along with regulatory loopholes, can undermine the efficacy of these measures. Moreover, the advent of new technology introduces additional safety concerns, as every innovation brings along its own set of risks. For instance, the proliferation of autonomous drones and urban air mobility vehicles adds complexity to airspace management and collision avoidance. Consequently, continuous efforts are imperative to address existing limitations and adapt to evolving risks effectively.

Challenges in current measures

While technological solutions and regulatory measures have indeed made strides in addressing collision risks in UAVs, several challenges persist:

The Collision Avoidance Algorithm

Amidst these challenges, our research suggests a solution to transform collision avoidance in UAVs. At the core of our innovation lies the Collision Avoidance Algorithm, a sophisticated fusion of Neural Network Pipeline (NNP) components. This advanced algorithm incorporates Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), Recursive Neural Network (RNN), and Feed-forward Neural Network (FNN) elements to enable swift detection and response to dynamic obstacles encountered during flight.

Utilizing Object Trajectory Estimation (OTE) Algorithm

To establish an efficient framework for collision prevention, our solution partners with the Object Trajectory Estimation (OTE) algorithm, utilizing optical flow analysis. This strategic collaboration boosts the precision of collision avoidance and aids in generating a comprehensive dataset encompassing various scenarios. This dataset enriches research on collision avoidance, paving the path for future advancements in UAV safety technology.
