Currently, drones are both a toy and an assistant in photography and monitoring, support in topography surveying, as well as a delivery tool and a weapon for various military tasks. Just as drones differ in the specifics of their application, they also tend to vary in their design and capabilities: large and small, quiet and not so discreet, fast and slow, low-flying and cloud-skimming.
After all, whatever the parameters and tasks of the drone, it is controlled by a person by using Radio Frequency spectrums such as 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz bands, and a GPS receiver is required for successful interaction.
The summer school “IoT of Drones: GPS-Less Navigation” seeks to find out whether drones would be able to perform assigned tasks autonomously and without the use of GPS. Along with the matters of navigation, the summer school will focus on issues related to computer vision, the symbiosis of artificial intelligence, and new-generation transmission systems aimed at improving the level of autonomy of drones.
The program includes workshops and lectures in:
Internet of Things (IoT) and Sensor Networks;
Challenges and Trends for Fifth-Generation (5G) Technology Implementation;
High-Speed Data Telecommunication Networks;
Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO);
Physical and Environmental Exposures;
Alternative Device Communications.
