Resilient Delay-Tolerant Operation of Robots/UGVs

Bachelor Thesis, Master Thesis

Unmanned-Ground Vehicles are becoming increasingly important, especially in areas such as disaster recovery. While these robots are highly dependent on communication links, such links are oft also disrupted during disasters. Therefore, it is vital to cope with fluctuating connectivity on the protocol level and provide ways to receive telemetry data and send commands even without direct connections. Intermediate hops can be used to route data, but if even this is not possible, store, carry and forward architectures provide another alternative for such use-cases.
