Incorporating Geovectors into the Process of Conflict Resolution for UAV Airspace

In order to enable the safe and efficient integration of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles into very low level airspace, modern day research focuses on the development of new traffic services and procedures. One of these is the geovectoring protocol, which aims to reduce traffic complexity by setting limits on the velocity vector of UAVs. Problems with priorities emerge when performing conflict resolution maneuvers in geovector airspace, as the limits are ignored in this process. An extension to the Modified Voltage Potential (MVP) ruleset is proposed, based on Velocity Obstacle theory. Making use of an alternative resolution maneuver which respects the geovector, five resolution strategies are defined with different priority settings for the geovector. All resolution strategies show improvements on the ability to adhere to the limits, albeit at the expense of safety and stability. It is recommended to further investigate the performance of the geovector resolution strategies for other airspace types.
