Multi-interface network framework for UAV management and data communications
Víctor Sánchez Agüero, PhD Student at IMDEA Networks Institute, Madrid, Spain
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) technologies are frequently presented as a potential way to improve the safety and efficiency of civil transport. Recent efforts to manage UAV/drone operations in European civilian environments have resulted in the development of U-space, the European Union’s UAS Traffic Management (UTM) concept of operations. This talk presents the primary purposes of the H2020 Labyrinth project (mainly focusing on the communications architecture), which has as its main challenge to create and validate UAV applications through the research and development of path-planning algorithms and new UTM services.
