Development and Simulation of Safety Scenarios for Quadrocopters Using Gazebo

Quadrocopter drones are an important upcoming technology that also poses safety issues.

In this thesis, one should perform a safety analysis for quadrocopter swarms. Based on the safety analysis concrete safety scenarios should be implemented using the Gazebo simulator. For example, a safety scenarios could be that a quadrocopter lands when it reaches a very low level of battery. Another example would be that quadrocopter changes its height when it notices that there is another quadrocopter approaching. During the course of this study, it is necessary to utilize various sensors, as well as ROS (Robot Operating System) plugin for the Gazebo simulator.
