Constraint-Aware Trajectory for Drone Delivery Services

  title={Constraint-Aware Trajectory for Drone Delivery Services},
  author={Jermaine Janszen and Babar Shahzaad and Balsam Alkouz and Athman Bouguettaya},
Drones are becoming a novel means for delivery services. We present a demonstration of drone delivery services in a skyway network that uses the service paradigm. A set of experiments is conducted using Crazyflie drones to collect the data on various positions of drones, wind speed, wind direction, and battery consumption. We run the experiments for a range of flight patterns including linear, rectangular, and triangular shapes. Demo: https://youtu.be/tlXnUSIrRp0

Constraint-based Formation of Drone Swarms
An adaptive formation is presented in which a swarm adjusts to extrinsic constraints and changes the formation pattern in-flight, and a heuristic-based A* algorithm is used to route a drone swarm in a skyway network.
Service-Based Drone Delivery
This work proposes a novel service-oriented approach to enable the ubiquitous delivery of packages in a drone-operated skyway network and discusses the benefits, framework and architecture.


Package Delivery Using Autonomous Drones in Skyways
This work presents a multi-stop drone service system to deliver packages anywhere anytime within a specified geographic area, and describes a graphical user interface to monitor the real-time package delivery in the skyway network.
Robust Composition of Drone Delivery Services under Uncertainty
A Probabilistic Forward Search (PFS) algorithm to select and compose the best drone delivery services under uncertainty to illustrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed approach.
Constraint-Aware Drone-as-a-Service Composition
A heuristic-based multi-armed bandit approach to compose drone services minimizing delivery time and cost and a skyline approach is proposed that selects the optimal set of candidate drone services to reduce the search space.
Resilient Composition of Drone Services for Delivery
Provider-centric Allocation of Drone Swarm Services
A novel framework for the allocation of drone swarms for delivery services known as Swarm-based Drone-as-a-Service (SDaaS) ensures minimum cost (aka maximum profit) to drone swarm providers while meeting the time requirement of service consumers.
Formation-based Selection of Drone Swarm Services
A novel formation-guided framework for selecting Swarm-based Drone-as-a-Service (SDaaS) for delivery that considers extrinsic constraints including wind speed and direction.
Autonomous Recharging and Flight Mission Planning for Battery-operated Autonomous Drones
Several contributions to automated management systems for battery-operated autonomous drones are presented, including algorithms for solving the problem of flight mission planning and recharging optimization and a robotic charging system prototype that can recharge drones autonomously by the drone management system.
A Game-Theoretic Drone-as-a-Service Composition for Delivery
A novel game-theoretic approach for drone service composition considering recharging constraints and a non-cooperative game algorithm for the selection and composition of optimal drone services is proposed.
