Saving Lives at Sea with UAV-assisted Wireless Networks
|Title:||Saving Lives at Sea with UAV-assisted Wireless Networks||Authors:||Fontanesi, Gianluca; Zhu, Anding; Ahmadi, Hamed||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10897||Date:||12-Sep-2018||Online since:||2019-07-12T08:57:59Z||Abstract:||In this paper, we investigate traits and tradeoffs of a system combining Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)s with Base Station (BS) or Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RAN) for extending the terrestrial wireless coverage over the sea in emergency situations. Results for an over the sea deployment link budget show the trade-off between power consumption and throughput to meet the Search and Rescue targets.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Volume:||2018-September||Start page:||1159||End page:||1160||Copyright (published version):||2018 IEEE||Keywords:||Power demand; Unmanned aerial vehicles; Throughput; Wireless networks; Computer architecture; Europe||DOI:||10.1109/PIMRC.2018.8580670||Other versions:||http://pimrc2018.ieee-pimrc.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications, PIMRC||Conference Details:||PIMRC 2018: IEEE 29th Annual International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications, Bologna, Italy, 9-12 September 2018||ISBN:||9781538660096|
