The 11th International Workshop on Wireless Sensor, Robot and UAV Networks
in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2018, Honolulu, HI, USA, April 16th, 2018
Wireless Sensor, Robot and UAV networks are the confluence point where the traditional fields of wireless communications, robotics and control theory meet. In this kind of networks, nodes collaborate to accomplish distributed sensing and actuation tasks. Leveraged by the control and mobility of actors, the networking process and applications embrace a whole new set of possibilities. Autonomous cooperative systems, made of intelligent devices (such as robots and UAVs), may deploy, repair and relocate sensors to improve coverage, build routes and fix network partition to ensure data communication, change network topology to shape routing patterns and balance energy consumption, and respond to reported events in a timely and effective manner. The benefits are limited only by imagination. As an emerging field, the 5G architecture foresees explicitly the usage of these specialized systems and offer new networking techniques, by which they can fully exploit their particularities and potentials.
WiSARN aims at bringing together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification and implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for current and future applications of such systems.
