Dronet'21: Proceedings of the 7th Workshop on Micro Aerial Vehicle Networks, Systems, and Applications
Drone aircraft -- Industrial applications, Drone aircraft
Networked drones have the potential to transform various applications domains; yet their adoption particularly in indoor and forest environments has been stymied by the lack of accurate maps and autonomous navigation abilities in the absence of GPS, the lack of highly reliable, energy-efficient wireless communications, and the challenges of visually inferring and understanding an environment with resource-limited individual drones. We advocate a novel vision for the research community in the development of distributed, localized algorithms that enable the networked drones to dynamically coordinate to perform adaptive beam forming to achieve high capacity directional aerial communications, and collaborative machine learning to simultaneously localize, map and visually infer the challenging environment, even when individual drones are resource-limited in terms of computation and communication due to payload restrictions.
