AWARE Project (IST-2006-33579)
The general objective of the project is the design, development and experimentation of a platform providing the middleware and the functionalities required for the cooperation among aerial flying objects, i.e. autonomous helicopters, and a ground sensor-actuator wireless network, including mobile nodes carried by people and vehicles. The platform will enable the operation in sites with difficult access and without communication infrastructure. Then, the project considers the self-deploying of the network by means of autonomous helicopters with the ability to transport and deploy loads (communication equipment and nodes of the ground network).
To reach the above mentioned main goal, the project has the following technical objectives:
In order to verify the success in reaching the objectives, the project considers the validation in two different applications: Civil Security/Disaster Management and Filming dynamically evolving scenes with mobile objects. Three general experiments in a common scenario will be conducted in order to integrate the system and test the functionalities required for the above validations.
The expected results and techniques will be transferable to many potential applications involving wireless networking of heterogeneous objects.
