Deployment and connectivity repair of a sensor net with a flying robot
Corke, Peter, Hrabar, S., Peterson, R., Rus, D., Saripalli, S., & Sukhatme, G. (2006) Deployment and connectivity repair of a sensor net with a flying robot. In Proceedings of the 9th International Symposium on Experimental Robotics.
We consider multi-robot systems that include sensor nodes and aerial or ground robots networked together. Such networks are suitable for tasks such as large-scale environmental monitoring or for command and control in emergency situations. We present a sensor network deployment method using autonomous aerial vehicles and describe in detail the algorithms used for deployment and for measuring network connectivity and provide experimental data collected from field trials. A particular focus is on determining gaps in connectivity of the deployed network and generating a plan for repair, to complete the connectivity. This project is the result of a collaboration between three robotics labs (CSIRO, USC, and Dartmouth). Â© Springer-Verlag Berlin/Heidelberg 2006.
