In Search And Rescue missions, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) equipped with cameras allow for efficient scanning of large areas. Yet, delivering high resolution images to rescuers also requires high-speed communication. In this paper, we investigate the potential and challenges of wireless communication between UAVs in such scenarios. Our fleet of UAVs supports both a high-bandwidth network for bulk data transfer (802.11n) as well as a long-range radio for control messages (XBee-PRO 802.15.4… CONTINUE READING
