The use of terrestrial or flying robots carrying radio equipment is the new promising frontier in our quest towards ever more flexible,adaptable wireless networks. Interestingly, robot-augmented networks are not only useful towards connectivity: They provide unique sensing capabilities. The ultimate selling point of in-network robots lies in their ability to self-navigate in 2D or 3D so as to optimize their data collection and consequently their sensing performance. In this talk we review recent work on sensing and localization using UAVs. Real-life experiements using muliple cooperative UAVs are also reported.
Prof. David Gesbert (Fellow, IEEE) is serving as Director of EURECOM,Sophia Antipolis, France (www.eurecom.fr). He received the Ph.D. degree from TelecomParis, France, in 1997. From 1997 to 1999, he was with the Information Systems Laboratory, Stanford University. He was a founding engineer of Iospan Wireless Inc., a Stanford spin off pioneering MIMO-OFDM (currently Intel). Before joining EURECOM in 2004, he was with the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo. He has published about 350 articles and 25 patents, 7 of them winning IEEE Best paper awards. He has been the Technical Program Co-Chair for ICC2017 and has been named a Thomson-Reuters Highly Cited Researchers in computer science. He is a Board Member for the OpenAirInterface (OAI) Software Alliance. He was a previous awardee of an ERC Advanced Grant in the area of future networks. In 2020, he was also awarded funding by the French Interdisciplinary Institute on Artificial Intelligence for a Chair in the area of AI for the future IoT. In 2021, he received the Grand Prix in Research jointly from IMT and the French Academy of Sciences.
