ABSTRACT
In this article, a novel nature-inspired autonomous guidance is investigated regarding the honey bee motion algorithm for aerial robots and fuzzy logic. Combination of the bee al- gorithm and fuzzy logic is proposed to achieve an on-line guidance for methodology of this research. The main idea of this work belongs to a novel analogy between honey bees and aerial robots motions. Moreover, information links between the aerial robots are demon- strated to construct a formation of vehicles by updating motions based on fuzzy decision making. Three dimensional simulations for the aerial robots are considered to show the ef- ficient performance of autonomous guidance. The simulation results show precise ability of the proposed method for aerospace and robotics engineers based on a nature phenomenon to present an innovative guidance method.
