A Distributed Framework for Supporting 3D Swarming Applications
2014 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
In-flight wireless sensor networks (WSN) are ofincreased interest owing to efficiency gains in weight and operationallifetime of IP-enabled computers. High impact 3Dswarming applications for such systems include autonomousmapping, surveying, servicing, environmental monitoring anddisaster site management. For distributed robotic applications,such as quad copter swarms, it is critical that the robots are ableto localise themselves autonomously with respect to other robotsand to share information. The importance of fast and reliabledissemination of localised information in these elastic threedimensionalnetworks provides us sufficient reason to presenta distributed framework and hardware settings for passing thisinformation pervasively through the swarm. The research field ofInternet of Things (IoT) have for several years been addressingissues around low-power, low-bandwidth wireless communication.By applying IoT technologies to the challenges around swarming,new opportunities are created. However, since IoT have beenprimarily used with stationary devices, the introduction of flyingsensors will add more challenges to address.
