AWARE Project (IST-2006-33579)


Platform for Autonomous self-deploying and operation of Wireless sensor-actuator networks cooperating with AeRial objEcts.
(June 1, 2006 - August 31, 2009)

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).
