Daniel Bonilla Licea presents When Robotics Meets Wireless Communications: An Introductory Tutorial

The seminar will present the tutorial 'When Robotics Meets Wireless
Communications: An Introductory Tutorial' which was published in Proceedings of
the IEEE.


The importance of ground mobile robots (MRs) and unmanned aerial vehicles
within the research community, industry, and society is growing fast. Nowadays,
many of these agents are equipped with communication systems that are, in some
cases, essential to successfully achieve certain tasks. In this context, we
begun to witness the development of a new interdisciplinary research field at
the intersection of robotics and communications. This research field has been
boosted by the intention of integrating UAVs within the 5G and 6G communication
networks and will undoubtedly lead to many important applications in the near
future. Nevertheless, one of the main obstacles to the development of this
research area is that most researchers address these problems by
either the robotics or the communications aspects. Doing so impedes the ability
to reach the full potential of this new interdisciplinary research area. In
tutorial, we present some of the modeling tools necessary to address problems
involving both robotics and communication from an interdisciplinary
As an illustrative example of such problems, we focus on the issue of
communication-aware trajectory planning in this tutorial.

The seminar will take place in room E 218.

The seminar will be of length (40 minutes + 20 minutes discussion).
