Weekly Seminar: “Wireless Channel Modelling of Drone-Ground links using RF measurements”

ABSTRACT:

In this talk, Prof. Hari will briefly introduce the motivation to study channel modeling followed by a brief overview of the experiments in channel measurements leading to the IEEE 802.16 standard. He will present the challenges in developing a communication system for drone communication links using current systems like LTE and the motivation to study the wireless channel models for such networks. Also, he will present the drone-ground wireless channel measurement system design, data collection methodology,  and preliminary results of the analysis based on the experiments that have been carried out on the campus of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
