报告题目:5G & Beyond: Embracing the New Era of Internet-of-Drones (IoD)

报告摘要:The past few years have witnessed a tremendous increase in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones in various civilian applications, such as for aerial surveillance, traffic control, photography, package delivery, and communication platforms. Despite their widespread applications, how to enable high-capacity, low-latency and ultra-reliable wireless communications between UAVs and their associated ground entities is still an open challenge. Cellular-connected UAVs is a promising solution to achieve this goal, by integrating UAVs as new aerial users in the existing and future cellular networks. However, the integration of UAVs into 5G-and-beyond wireless systems calls for a paradigm shift on the design of traditional cellular networks, to enable a highly heterogeneous network architecture with coexisting terrestrial and UAV users. In this talk, we will provide a comprehensive overview of the potential applications, networking architectures, the latest research findings and key enabling technologies for cellular-connected UAV communications, to embrace a forthcoming new era of Internet-of-Drones (IoD).
