DroNet 2017 - 3rd ACM Workshop on Micro Aerial Vehicle Networks,

Systems, and Applications

Co-located with ACM MobiSys 2017

Robot vehicle platforms, often called “drones”, offer exciting new

opportunities for mobile computing. While traditional mobile systems

respond to device mobility (such as smartphones), drones allow

computer systems to actively control device location, allowing them to

interact with the physical world in new ways and with new-found scale,

efficiency, or precision. The startup cost to experiment with and

build real drone applications has dropped dramatically in recent

years, also thanks to technological developments driven by the

smartphone industry and the rise of the “makers” and DIY

movements. Recent popular applications employing drones are

3D-mapping, search and rescue, surveillance, farmland and construction

monitoring, delivery of light-weight objects and products, and video


DroNet welcomes contributions dealing with all facets of drones as

mobile computing platforms, including system aspects, theoretical

studies, algorithm and protocol design, as well as requirements,

constraints, dependability, and regulations. We are particularly

looking for papers reporting on experimental results of deployed

systems, summaries of challenges or advancements, measurements, and

innovative applications. The primary focus of this workshop will be on

civilian applications of drones.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Novel applications of drones

    Drone system design and deployment

    Drone ad-hoc networks

    Micro flying systems

    Aerial communication protocol design

    Drone operating systems

    Programming systems

    MAC and routing protocols for drone fleets

    Theoretical analysis and models for drone networks

    Solutions for sparse and dense fleets of drones

    Spectrum and regulatory issues

    Mission and context-aware solutions

    Drone coordination

    Mobility-aware and 3D communication

    Delay-tolerant networks and ferrying

    Energy-efficient operation and harvesting

    Integration of drones with backend systems

    Drone-based sensor networks

    Positioning and localization

    Swarm movement, coordination, and behavior

    Autonomous flight

    Artificial intelligence techniques for drones

    Vision and object tracking

    Human drone interaction

    Cooperative surveillance, smart cameras and sensors

    Acceptance, security, and privacy aspects

    Experimental results of aerial communication

    Drone testbeds

DroNet invites submission of original work not previously published or

under review at another conference or journal. Accepted papers will be

published by ACM and considered for the Best Paper Award. A Best

Presentation Award will be decided at the workshop.  For more
