In this article we address the problem of cooperative pose estimation in a group of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in a bounded-error context. The UAVs are equipped with cameras to track landmarks, and with a communication and ranging system to cooperate with their neighbors. Measurements are represented by intervals, and constraints are expressed on the robots poses (positions and orientations). Pose domains subpavings are obtained by using set inversion via interval analysis. Each robot of the group first computes a pose domain using only its sensors measurements. Then, through position boxes exchanges, the positions are cooperatively refined by constraint propagation in the group. Results with real robot data are presented, and show that the position accuracy is improved thanks to cooperation.
