Paper accepted in IEEE Networking Letters

Paper entitled “Dynamic Relay Selection and Positioning for Cooperative UAV Networks” is accepted for publication in IEEE Networking Letters.

This letter analyzes resource reservation for networking purposes in drone teams deployed for search and rescue missions. Building on a well-known static relay positioning technique that minimizes the number of drones, we propose a positioning and trajectory planning algorithm for relay nodes to provide connectivity to drones that are on a search and rescue mission.

Our paper “Neighbor Cardinality Estimation with Low-Power Transceivers: Implementation and Experimental Results,” is accepted in IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference- Spring 2014.

The paper provides a proof-of-concept and performance test of neighbor estimation algorithms with an implementation on low-power wireless sensor devices. We illustrate the challenges of implementing the recently proposed multi-feedback estimator (MFE)  on Z1 sensor devices. We compare the performance of MFE to that of simple neighbor counting.
