A crucial task of a UAV cluster is quickly completing the exploration and construction of unknown environments. However, the formulation of a realtime detection map-based online autonomous exploration strategy remains a problem that requires discussion and improvement. The Distributed Next-Best-Path and Terminal (DNBPT) method is a distributed unknown environment exploration framework we propose in this paper for a UAV cluster that takes path and terminal state gain into complete account. In order to guide the UAV's subsequent decision, this method calculates the gain by comprehensively calculating the new exploration grid brought about by the exploration path and terminal state guidance to the unexplored area. We propose a reasonable multistep particular inspecting strategy and a better Discrete Parallel Molecule Multitude Enhancement calculation for way streamlining. The simulation shows that the DNBPT can explore multiple scenes quickly under high coverage conditions.


UAV cluster • Sampling and optimization • Distributed path planning


Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are currently utilized extensively for a variety of tasks in a variety of settings, particularly in scenes that are unfamiliar and complex. Exploring an unknown environment, which is frequently used for search and rescue and dangerous area reconnaissance, is one of the typical tasks. Under the condition that there is no prior environmental information to achieve a fully independent construction of highly saturated environmental information, unknown environment exploration means that unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or a cluster of UAVs can make decisions regarding their own actions in real time by relying on their detection equipment. Unknown environment exploration lacks prior map data in comparison to other missions. In order to finish the environmental construction of the entire region as soon as possible, it is essential to establish the autonomous strategy of the exploration action. Additionally, the cluster's coordination and the avoidance of repeated exploration must be taken into consideration.

Literature Review

The ploughing method is used for complete coverage path planning in traditional exploration of unknown environments, but it only targets specific conditions without environment obstacles. The ploughing method uses a straightforward wall-following strategy to avoid sudden obstacles in the path, which has significant limitations as well. Yamauchi pioneered a frontier-based exploration strategy and expanded it to include multiple robots, which is regarded as a significant traditional strategy for exploring the unknown environment. The boundary that separates the explored grid from the unexplored grid is referred to as the frontier. The explored obstacle grid is not included in this definition. The boondocks based technique gets investigation data by exploring the robot to the wilderness network. Frontier-based exploration is the foundation for many of the most cutting-edge strategies. fostered an outskirts determination system that limits the adjustment of speed important to arrive at it to accomplish the high velocity development of quad rotors proposed frontier information (FIS)- based hierarchical planning framework that enables a UAV cluster to quickly investigate indoor environments [1].

Another particularly efficient method for exploration is the sampling-based one. The main idea is to figure out the sampled state's information gain and pick the best one to use, which can work with many different ways to calculate gain and is very flexible. The frontier-based method works well with the samplingbased method as well. For instance, the SRT calculation drives the movement update of the robot through testing in the sensor security space and the choice of irregular investigation points. The Following Best-View (NBV) is an investigation technique presented from 3D recreation and has turned into a broadly utilized example based investigation strategy [2].


The Receding Horizon Next-Best-View was proposed by the authors, who found a fine effect in indoor exploration and reconstruction mapping by combining NBV with a path planning algorithm that was similar to RRT and RRT*. A method for looking into UFOs was proposed by the authors in. The exploration decision was made based on the nearest point with the most information gain rather than the maximum information gain, which achieved the effect of rapid exploration at a minimal cost to computing resources and was based on the rapidly updated map format known as the UFO Map. Additionally, machine learningbased exploration strategies are regarded as having tremendous potential and numerous academics are carrying out pertinent research. However, there are only a few engineering applications for exploring unknown environments and its ability to generalize to different environments is weak, necessitating additional investigation and investigation.

The cluster is usually used for big scenes, like underground garages or big factories, to make sure the job can be done quickly. In this scenario, the distributed cluster structure is thought to be superior for exploring the environment of a robot cluster. It is able to handle the impact of poor communication in the cluster or sudden failures in a flexible manner to minimize efficiency loss in addition to avoiding excessive pressure on central computing resources. Nonetheless, for disseminated bunches, planning the investigation procedure of every stage to keep away from rehashed investigation and complete the investigation rapidly under the reason of group crash evasion is as yet a troublesome issue [3].

Although the preceding method appears to only take into account the state of the subsequent step when calculating its gain, the motion process's impact on exploration is thought to be negligible, particularly when the sensor's field of view (FOV) is restricted or is located near an obstacle; dynamics should also be taken into account to improve efficiency. As a result, the path and terminal gain are taken into account when developing a distributed exploration framework for unknown environments in this paper. By taking into account the dynamic constraints imposed by the state sequence, this framework generates a number of exploration paths, with optimization techniques being used to find the best one [4].

The energy loss of dynamics, the expansion of map exploration in the path process, the advantages of the terminal state for subsequent exploration and collision avoidance in the cluster are the evaluation factors. The paths are planned for a certain amount of time in the future and the first one will be used until the cluster's exploration coverage meets the requirements. An efficient improved Discrete Binary Particle Swarm Optimization (BPSO) algorithm, a gain calculation method for path exploration and a multistep selective optimal sampling method are provided to guarantee the effectiveness of online planning. The outcomes show the viability and predominance of the calculation in the investigation of obscure conditions of a UAV group in various scenes [5,6].


In this paper, we propose a DNBPT method for UAV clusters to explore unknown environments. The gain is calculated by comprehensively considering the contribution of the path process and the terminal state to the exploration and the optimal path is evaluated and selected by multistep optimal sampling and the improved BPSO algorithm. The simulation results show that this method has advantages in different types and sizes of scenes. In addition, this method has strong generality and can be transplanted to other robot platforms.
