The annual list Rising Stars in Computer Networking and Communications recognizes ten up-and-coming female researchers to honor their great career start. This year’s list features Samira Hayat, doctoral graduate from the University of Klagenfurt and now researcher at Lakeside Labs and founder. She is the first Austrian-based scientist to receive this award.
Wireless communications is essential for many applications with commercial drones. Omid Semiari interviewed Christian Bettstetter about this exciting topic at the interface of communications and robotics for the latest IEEE ComSoc TCCN newsletter.
Daniel Neuhold, researcher in the team of Christian Bettstetter, received a “scholarship of excellence” from the Federation of Austrian Industries (Carinthia) and the Economic Chamber for a six-month research stay abroad.
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.
