Abstract:
Recently, the civilian applications of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are gaining more interest in several domains. Due to operational costs, safety concerns and legal regulations, Agent- Based Simulation (ABS) are commonly used to implement models and conduct tests. This has resulted in abundant research works addressing ABS in UAVs. This paper aims at providing a comprehensive overview of this domain by conducting a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) on relevant research works in the previous ten years. Eight research questions are considered at the beginning of the review, including the understanding of the evolution of UAV simulations in multi-agent systems in the last decade, identifying the key components of the agent-based UAV models and frameworks. From the SLR results, seven research directions are highlighted, including problems related to autonomy, explainability, security, flight duration, integration within smart cities regulations, and validation & verification of the models.
