Abstract

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones have gained a lot of interest due to their advantages for inspecting infrastructures. However, they have a limited flight time. In order to solve this problem, we designed a cloud server and analyzed a reliable communication link between the cloud server and the drones. Furthermore, we have proposed an optimal scheduling algorithm to assign an energy-efficient trajectory for the Internet of Drones applications of infrastructure inspection. An optimal scheduling algorithm based on extended OR-Tools as a travelling salesman problem solver is hosted as a Docker container in the cloud server. We implemented a framework and validate the quality aspect of the optimal scheduling algorithm along with the communication link between the cloud and the drones. The overall architecture of the designed platform is illustrated along with the static analysis of the communication link and scheduling algorithm.
