Wireless Sensor, Robot and UAV networks are characterized by the coordination and mobility of nodes that are able to accomplish distributed sensing and actuation tasks. Leveraged by the control and mobility of actors, the networking process and applications embrace a whole new set of possibilities. Specialized networked systems, made of intelligent devices (such as robots and UAVs), may deploy, repair and relocate sensors to improve coverage, build routes and fix network partition to ensure data communication, change network topology to shape routing patterns and balance energy consumption, and to respond to reported events in a timely and effective manner. Also, they might be able to integrate within existing and upcoming mobile infrastructures (e.g. the 5G), by enabling the sensing operations on complex and dynamic scenarios, and to process the data on the edge or to offload them toward existing cloud services. The benefits are limited only by imagination. As an emerging field, ground and aerial robotic systems are in need of new networking techniques as well as of novel cloud/edge architectures for data gathering and processing that might unlock the potentials of such systems.

To this purpose, WiSARN aims at bringing together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification and implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for current and future applications of sensor robotic and aerial networks. IEEE WiSARN 2020 will serve as incubator for scientific communities that share a particular research agenda in the area of the workshop’s topic. Moreover, it will provide its participants with opportunities to understand the major technical and application challenges of UAV/Robot networking as well as exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas related to their architecture, protocol, algorithm, and application design.




Original, unpublished contributions are solicited in design, implementation and evaluation of wireless sensor, robot and UAV networks. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

– UAV-aided wireless sensor networks

– Communication protocols and wireless technologies for robotic systems

– UAV and robot networks in 5G systems

– Emergent behavior in robotic systems

– Cloud/fog/edge computing platforms in robotic systems

– Data management, gathering and aggregation issues in robotic systems

– Modeling and control of fleet of UAVs

– Autonomic and self-organizing coordination and communication in Robot and UAV networks

– Sensor-robot and robot-robot coordination

– Energy-efficient and real-time communication protocols in Robot and UAV networks

– Distributed control and management for Robot and UAV network deployments

– Map exploration and pattern formation of mobile robots

– Robot task assignment

– Biologically inspired communication systems for Robot and UAV networks

– Software-Defined Aerial Networks

– Endurance Management

– Context-awareness and decision making for UAV systems

– Path planning, and target tracking in UAV networks

– Quality of service, security and robustness issues
