A Distributed Method to Organize Terrestrial Nodes to Facilitate Short Drone Routes in WSNs (bibtex)
by Konstantinos Skiadopoulos, Konstantinos Giannakis, Konstantinos Oikonomou, Ioannis Stavrakakis, Sofia Fanarioti
Abstract:
Drones are currently the focus of increased interest for various purposes related to actual applications and communication systems. Although their autonomous capabilities allow them to operate as a distinct network themselves, it is common to use them in combination with traditional communication networks, such as Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), the Internet of Things applications, etc. Energy constraints and limited automated control of drones are challenging in certain cases, where a network is obligated to operate distributedly with limited control from outside. In this work, a setting involving a ground wireless sensor network and one drone is studied, taking into account the limited energy capabilities of a drone. In particular, the relation between a drone's route (in terms of traveled distance) and the communication cost (in terms of exchanged messages) is addressed, by proposing a novel algorithm that clusters nodes under a simple, cost-effective way. Simulation results depict that sufficient advantage is gained using the proposed solution.
