Abstract

We consider the problem of the joint mission planning in teams of heterogeneous physical agents in the search and rescue domain. In order to address the several issues arising as a result of the complex agents' interactions, we propose a general strategic framework based on the promotion or enforcement of spatio-temporal relations among the search trajectories of the agents. In this way, enabling the mission planner to obtain solutions that maximize the area coverage and, at the same time, control the spatial proximity among the agents. We demonstrated the application of the proposed framework to address common issues arising in real-world search and rescue missions.
