Description Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or drones, have emerged as versatile tools for various applications, including surveillance, environmental monitoring, and delivery services. However, establishing reliable communication links among UAVs remains a critical challenge due to factors such as flight conditions, distance, and channel errors. Mesh technology based on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth offers a promising solution to address these challenges by enabling dynamic, self-configuring networks among UAVs. This proposal outlines a master's thesis project aimed at researching and enhancing mesh technology for reliable UAV communication.
Objectives: The primary objectives of this thesis project are as follows:
Investigate the feasibility and performance of mesh technology based on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth for connecting UAVs, with a focus on small drones like
the Crazyflie 2.1.
Develop and optimize communication protocols tailored to the specific
constraints and requirements of UAV applications, considering factors
such as reliability, latency, and scalability.
Implement the proposed solution on mini Linux-powered boards, with a
particular emphasis on ESP8266 or ESP32 processors, while exploring
alternative options.
Evaluate the performance of the developed system through simulations
and real-world experiments, considering various flight conditions,
distances, and channel error scenarios.
Explore the integration of automatic control principles to enhance the
resilience and adaptability of the mesh network in dynamic environments.
