Today people are witnessing the rapid evolvement in every area. This is because of the emerging trends in communication technology and autonomous unmanned vehicles. These trends have led us towards the high standards of health, energy, transportation, monitoring, and surveillance of huge domestic and industrial projects. Thus, this session presents the integration of the latest trend in communication technology, i.e., Internet of things (IoT) with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This talk not only reviews the use of IoT-enabled unmanned aerial vehicles for inspecting the several construction sites but also emphasizes the utilization of such IoT-enabled autonomous aerial vehicles for ensuring the health and safety measures at the site. It discusses the major limitations and shortcomings of state-of-the-art techniques for the same purpose, i.e., optimization issues in path planning, lightweight artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision algorithms, coordination in communication using IoT, and scalability of IoT network. Thus, this presentation shall help the attendees to explore different open research problems in-depth.


Engr. Abro, is one of the active members at Institute of Electrical and Electronic engineers Inc. (IEEE) and currently working as graduate research assistant at Institute of Autonomous Systems (IAS) particularly at research group of "Center of System Engineering CSE" at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia. In addition to this, Mr. Abro has authored more than 20+ Internationally recognized publications which include computer vision and control, Internet of robotic things, Modelling and designing control systems for the stabilization of underactuated systems under the influence of unmodelled dynamic factors. He is also recipient of three (3) national grants awarded by Higher Education Commission (HEC) Government of Pakistan and one International grant awarded by Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers Inc. (IEEE).
