Autonomous deployment and repair of a sensor network using an unmanned aerial vehicle
Corke, Peter, Hrabar, S., Peterson, R., Rus, D., Saripalli, S., & Sukhatme, G. (2004) Autonomous deployment and repair of a sensor network using an unmanned aerial vehicle. In Proceedings - IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation.
We describe a sensor network deployment method using autonomous flying robots. Such networks are suitable for tasks such as large-scale environmental monitoring or for command and control in emergency situations. We describe in detail the algorithms used for deployment and for measuring network connectivity and provide experimental data we collected from field trials. A particular focus is on determining gaps in connectivity of the deployed network and generating a plan for a second, repair, pass to complete the connectivity. This project is the result of a collaboration between three robotics labs (CSIRO, USC, and Dartmouth.).
