Description In the context of the research activities of the Internet Media Group within the PIC4SeR center (https://pic4ser.polito.it), we are looking for master thesis students interested in studying and implementing systems to allow real-time communications between robots (drones/rovers) using mobile devices, such as smartphones. The activity will be carried out by extending an Android application which has been already developed in a previous master thesis. In this work it is expected to be able to tightly control communication latency in order to transmit time-sensitive information such as positioning, as well as to eventually develop a simple communication protocol that allows direct communication between the devices even when access point support is missing.
The activity can be carried out without being physically present on a day-to-day basis at the Politecnico. At the end of the development it will be possible, if desired, to experiment with actual robots (either rovers or drones).
Required skills Basic ability to program mobile applications in an Android environment, Basic knowledge of networking principles, protocols and applications
