Online planning for human – multi-robot interactive theatrical performance

This paper describes a full system for controlling multi-robot teams online, meaning that plans do not have to be designed prior to operation. The system is specifically illustrated with quadrotors in the context of an improvisational theatrical performance. The robot system interprets commands received from a human operator into dynamically feasible and collision free trajectories, and smoothly transitions from currently executing plans to the new trajectories in real time.

Fast and Agile Vision-Based Flight with Teleoperation and Collision Avoidance on a Multirotor

We present a system capable of flying fast and with agility while avoiding obstacles and obeying user commands. Our flying hexarotor robot can be flown as aggressively as a racing drone by an untrained operator while actively avoiding collisions with the surrounding environment.
