UAV swarm locating a gas plume

I thought I would post some information about some research I have done for my doctoral thesis. Those videos show a simulation of UAVs swarming with an advanced control algorithms. A swarm of UAVs are shown, which find a source of fumes or aerosols by measuring the concentration at their actual position. Due to communication and a distributed Extended Kalman Filter they estimate the fumes position. These UAVs fly at a certain concentration line, which in the video is marked blue. This is just a demonstartion of one kind of task for the swarm.
