Aims and Scope

Recently, the rapid development of Unmanned Vehicles (UVs) such as Unmanned
Ground Vehicles (UGVs) (i.e., robots) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
(i.e., drones), has highlighted a myriad of new emergent applications such
as infrastructure inspection and surveillance, smart agriculture,
monitoring, search and rescue, parcel delivery, communications, and
post-disaster recovery, just to mention a few. In all these novel
applications, ground and aerial vehicles may jointly work together, and
also coexist with ground Internet of Things (IoT) devices. For instance,
multiple UGVs can perform particular tasks relying on the IoT sensors'
perceived data, while a swarm of UAVs can assist the UGVs relaying the
collected data by the UGVs to the base station, in order to infer opportune
decisions and take actions. Therefore, efficient data collection and
networking algorithms should be devised for.

For this workshop, we are looking for papers that combine the design of
novel algorithms and testbed implementations to develop the theoretical
foundations for UVs as well as the synergies with IoT devices. The numerous
emergent applications raised by IoT may require an interdisciplinary
approach, involving techniques from algorithm foundations and different
areas, such as computer networks, artificial intelligence, concurrent,
parallel and distributed computing, networking, security, digital signal,
image and sound processing.
