Swarm

module load swarm

This module is a GUI for managing swarms of vehicles (typically 2-10 vehicles).

It allows individual or group-based simultaneous control of swarm members.

The swarm parameters (SYSID_THISMAV and FOLL_SYSID) should be configured beforehand.

The GUI will show each swarm as a single row, with the swarm leader being the leftmost vehicle.

Any vehicles not in a swarm will be shown in the “Unassigned vehicles” row at the bottom.

The GUI itself allows:

  • Mode changes (single and swarm-based)
  • High level information about each vehicle shown
  • Arm and disarming
  • Kill-switch to immediately disarm
