Analysis of the Performance of Cellular Mobile Networks for the Remote-Control Systems of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Summary of the Doctoral Thesis
Deniss Brodņevs, Riga Technical University, Latvia
The Thesis is concerned with assessing the suitability of LTE (4G) cellular networks for the remote control of low-flying UAVs. To solve this problem, an approach to the analysis of the delay values in cellular networks has been developed, which makes it possible to estimate the delays of individual cells and overall cellular network. Requirements for delays in the UAV control channel were developed, conclusions were drawn about the suitability of the LTE network as a communication solution for the UAV remote control. A method for calculating the effect of parallel redundancy is proposed, and an experimental assessment of the possibility of using two existing solutions for parallel redundancy in LTE networks is carried out. In addition, a compact technical solution for analyzing the level of base station signals was demonstrated.
