Autonomous Aerial Vehicle Based on Non-Monotonic Logic

Abstract : In this article we study the case of an autonomous motor-glider. The aims of the aircraft is to maintain its flight as long as possible, taking advantage of the rising air from the ground, known as thermals, despite of limited energy resources and possible external influences, such as turbulences. The pilot task being to make decisions with incomplete, uncertain or even contradictory information, as well as driving to the desired path or destination. We propose the formulation of a model from the point of view of logical theory, using non-monotonic logic and more specifically default logic, to tackle these problems. Finally, we present the results of a simulation for further application in a glider(reduced model) which use solar cells for power management in embedded system.
