Abstract

This paper is concerned with the integration and control of UAVs and wireless sensor networks, an approach that is useful in isolated areas where communication between ground nodes might be difficult. We present the preliminary design for a fixed-wing aircraft carrying a wireless sensor node which acts as a mobile gateway for information gathering. Experiments were conducted using a low cost UAV platform to measure the range and amount of data that can be exchanged between ground-based and airborne nodes. Field test results demonstrate the feasibility of this approach and the viability of a combined UAV air and ground wireless sensor network.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
