Graphical User Interface for Control of a Drone Swarm and Collision Avoidance

The purpose of this project is to investigate the question “Does haptic feedback with visual feedback offer better boundary control for robot swarms than just visual feedback?” Moving large swarms of agents can be challenging so the goal of this project is to reduce agent collisions with fixed objects by giving the operator a vibrational type of haptic feedback. The metrics that will be measured are number of collisions and time it takes operators to navigate through the maze. The information produced by this project can help decide if vibrational feedback is a viable solution for control of swarms.
