Austria establishes a test field for 5G mobile systems. It can be used by companies and research institutes to advance their prototypes and products. The concept was presented in a press conference at the ministry for transport, innovation, and technology this week.
A multidisciplinary team at the University of Klagenfurt is due to deliver initial insights on the efficient operation of a drone-based delivery network. Doctoral student Pasquale Grippa will present the results at the Robotics: Science and Systems event taking place at MIT this week.
An interdisciplinary workshop on self-organization and swarm intelligence in cyber physical systems was held at Lakeside Labs this week. Experts presented their work and discussed open issues in this exciting field.
An analysis of robotics conferences of the past four years shows that Austria has relatively low visibility. It also shows that expertise is distributed among a handful of universities.
Samira Hayat and I attended re:publica 2017 in Berlin. It was an exciting event not least because Samira gave a very personal talk about drones and their application in disaster response.
It was an honor and pleasure of visiting the Center for Aerial Robotics Research and Education (CARRE) in Toronto. I gave a talk on wireless communication and job selection for drones and discussed research topics with many awesome colleagues.
Lakeside Labs is a non-profit organization for scientific research and development of self-organizing networked systems. Our goal is to apply and improve self-organization in the areas of IoT, robotics and transportation. It has been a successful year.
We highlight research issues for wireless networking in aerial systems consisting of multiple small autonomous drones. Among these challenges are video streaming, synchronization, security and safety, and interference management.
Samira Hayat from my team told her personal story at this year’s TED event at CERN and reported on our research activities in the field of multi-drone systems.
A newly published survey gives an overview of the characteristics and requirements of drone networks from the viewpoint of wireless communications and networking.
