Wireless Networking and Control for

Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles:

Architectures, Protocols and Applications

co-located with
IEEE International Conference on Global Communications (GLOBECOM 2013)


Wi-UAV 2013 in Atlanta

We are very happy to announce the key note speaker of this year's wi-UAV workshop:
Prof. Fumin Zhang will give a talk on the fascinating challenges and opportunities of "Control and Sensing Co-Design for Maritime Robotic Sensor Networks.

The program of the workshop is online.

This year's Wi-UAV features sessions of scientific papers on:
Session 1: Communications and Localization in Robotic Networks
Session 2: Aerial Relays and Base Stations
Session 3: UAV-based Sensing and Detection

We are looking forward to meet you 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.
