Disruption-Tolerant Control Channel for UAVs

Bachelor Thesis, Master Thesis

Unmanned-Aerial Vehicles have multiple uses in daily life. Furthermore, in disaster response they are commonly used for tasks such as taking aerial pictures, sensor readings or providing means of communication. Standard protocols for UAV control such as MAVlink are designed for direct real-time links. This limits the range of operation of such a system, especially if the communication infrastructure is damaged, e.g., during a disaster. Thus, alternative extensions build on disruption-tolerant networking which is also used for deep space communication should be explored to increase usability in challenging network conditions.
