Communication Technologies Enabling Effective UAV Networks: a Standards Perspective

Abstract

Recent developments in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) field have put in evidence the need for a standardization process of the communication technologies supporting direct information exchange, thus enabling UAV-to-UAV networking. We consider this is necessary to achieve all sorts of cooperative tasks requiring real-time (or near-real-time) synchronization, including swarm formation and collision avoidance. In this paper, we therefore argue in favor of introducing a new standard that would address this specific area, highlighting why current technologies are not adequate, what are the different steps towards a rapid standardization, and which lessons have been learned from related fields, namely the vehicular and the robotic environments, in the past few years.
