Wi-DroIT 2022 - 4th International Workshop on Wireless Sensors and Drones
in Internet of Things

May 30 – June 1, 2022
co-located with DCOSS 2022
Marina Del Rey, LA, California, USA

Website: https://widroit2022.github.io/
Submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=widroit2022

COVID-19 Pandemic Planning
Unless substantial, unforeseen developments occur, DCOSS 2022 will be held
as a physical, full in person event, at a high quality venue which pays
special attention to hygiene and safety. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register for the conference and attend it. Remote
presentation of a paper may exceptionally be allowed in special cases
(travel bans, medical issues) when physical participation is not possible.
Every paper accepted for DCOSS 2022 (presented in person or virtually) will
be published in the IEEE proceedings.

Aims and Scope

Recently, the rapid development of Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs),
also known as drones, has highlighted a plethora of emergent applications
such as infrastructure inspection and surveillance, smart agriculture, seek
and rescue, parcel delivery, communications, and post-disaster recovery. In
all these applications, UAVs may coexist with ground Internet of Things
(IoT) devices. For example, UAVs autonomously perform remote sensing
relaying the collected data by the sensors. Moreover, single or multiple
UAVs can cooperatively collaborate providing services that require
efficient protocols where multiple objectives and constraints should be
accounted for.

For this workshop, we seek papers that combine the design of algorithms and
testbed implementations to develop the theoretical foundations for UAVs as
well as the synergies with IoT devices. The numerous emergent applications
raised by IoT may require an interdisciplinary approach, involving
techniques from algorithm foundations and different areas, such as computer
networks, artificial intelligence, concurrent, parallel and distributed
computing, security, digital signal, image and sound processing.
