Abstract

Integration of airborne robotic platforms with
networks of intelligent sensor systems on the ground has
recently emerged as a robust solution for data collection,
analysis and control in various specialised applications. The
paper presents a hierarchical structure based on the
collaboration between a team of unmanned aerial vehicles
and a structure of federated wireless sensor networks for
crop monitoring in precision agriculture. Key advantages lay
in online data collection and relaying to a central monitoring
point while effectively managing network load and latency
through optimised UAV trajectories and in situ data
processing. The experiments were carried out at the
Fundulea National Research Institute where different crops
and methods are developed. The results demonstrate the fact
that the collaborative UAV-WSN approach implemented in
the Romanian project MUWI increases the performances
both in precision agriculture and ecological agriculture.
