Thank you for a great experience at Wi-UAV 2012

Wi-UAV 2012 has successfully taken place in Anaheim, USA on December, 7th. We thank all participants for the inspiring presentations and productive discussions. The presentations can be found here. We hope to see you again next year in Atlanta.

Aims and Scope

Unmanned autonomous systems are increasingly used in a large number of contexts to support humans in dangerous and difficult-to-reach environments: e.g. ground-based robotics, aerial sensor systems, space and underwater applications. In order to fulfill particularly challenging tasks, visionary scenarios foresee unmanned vehicles to be organized in networked teams and even swarms. The corresponding wireless networks need to provide highly reliable and delay-tolerant control links for the management of the behavior of the unmanned vehicles as well as data links to reliably transfer telemetry and sensor data respectively. At the same time, unmanned vehicles offer the capability to provide ad-hoc wireless networks, for example to facilitate temporary hot spots and compensate network outages in case of public events and emergencies.

The focus of the workshop will be solely based on projects and research aiming at civilian applications.
