The Role of Communication, Localization and Control in UAV systems

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), referred also as to drones, find application in many fields. In my recent keynote at the IEEE Intellect 2019 Conference, I gave an overview of key applications and discussed the main research challenges: communications, localization, path planning and control.
