Demonstration of Robotic Repair for Wireless Networks

Publication Type: 
Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
This paper describes our demonstration of a network repair problem where a robot bridges a gap between two disconnected wireless nodes by searching for a good position and moving there to forward data between the two nodes. It serves to show the potential for our published solutions for automated network repair. A simple Adhoc network consists of two Intel Galileo Gen 2 nodes exchanging messages and an NXT Mindstorm robot with another Galileo on board healing the network connection between the two Galileos in the case the two get disconnected. The demo showcases a solution that employs mobile agents to serve as relays to bridge the connectivity gaps in the wireless network.
