Drones to ride land transport? And interesting idea we elaborate in our new paper that got accepted for publication in IEEE VTC2019-Spring

What if we let drones/UAVs to ride land #transport (buses) to extend their batteries lifetime i.e. their missions coverage in terms of time and space? This is the idea we have elaborated in our article entitled “Exploiting Land Transport to Improve the UAV’s Performances for Longer Mission Coverage in Smart Cities” that has been accepted for publication and presentation at the upcoming 89th edition of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference VTC2019-Spring that will be hold on 28 April – 1 May 2019 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This work is an outcome from our NPRP project DroneITS which is funded by the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF).

Flying Road Side Unit (RSU), a solution we have developed using drones (UAV) to quickly deploy an RSU at locations that were not included in the initial deployment plan.

A good RSUs network is important for enabling the V2X technology especially in the early deployment stages. Indeed, before reaching a good penetration of enabled vehicles in the park, there will be a need for deployment of enough RSUs around the city at strategic locations.
