BPN916: Mesh-Networked Micro-Air-Vehicle Systems


The goal of this project is to develop mesh-networked multi-agent robotic systems that can improve connectivity in network-adverse conditions. Mesh-networking enables longer communication range for multi- MAV systems with limited radio power and provides scalable peer-to-peer communications.  This system is based on OpenWSN, which is an open-source implementation of the 6TiSCH networking protocol, whose underlying technology has been successful in mesh networks for industrial process automation. These successful mesh- networking technologies were originally intended for static network nodes, so node mobility wasn’t explicitly supported.  The goal of this research is to develop multi-agent control policies that decrease the mobility limitations of contemporary mesh-networking technologies.
