Quantum Wind Driven Optimization for Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle Path Planning
AbstractUnmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) path planning aims to calculate the optimal or suboptimal flight path considering the different threats and constraints under the complex battlefield environment. This flight path can help the UCAV avoid enemy threats and improve the efficiency of the investigation. This paper presents a new quantum wind driven optimization (QWDO) for the path planning of UCAV. QWDO algorithm uses quantum rotation gate strategy on population evolution and the quantum non-gate strategy to realize the individual variation of population. These operations improve the diversity of population and avoid premature convergence. This paper tests this optimization in two instances. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is feasible in these two cases. Compared to quantum bat algorithm (QBA), quantum particle swarm optimization (QPSO), wind driven optimization (WDO), bat algorithm (BA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), and differential evolution (DE), the QWDO algorithm exhibited better performance. The simulation results demonstrate that the QWDO algorithm is an effective and feasible method for solving UCAV path planning. View Full-Text
