Título: Game of Drones – The Internet of Battle Things: Connecting Intelligent Things in the Battle Field
Palestrante: Edison Pignaton

Resumo: The Internet of Things (IoT) is evolving towards systems that are not only able to acquire and transmit data, but also locally process these data and take timely decisions about actions that have to take place. It is possible to name the embedded intelligence in the IoT devices as the driving force behind this evolution, consubstantiating the concept of Internet of Intelligent Things (IoIT). The applications of this emerging concept are numerous in different domains. An important domain is in the context is defense and security, mainly used by the military, but also in the civilian context by law enforcement organizations, for instance, in applications such as area surveillance with Drones swarms. Despite the similarities with conventional civilian networks, military and security tactical networks impose a number of additional constraints that must be addressed. The insertion of intelligent devices, such autonomous Drones, in this scenario brings new possibilities, which are represented by the concept of the Internet of Battle Things (IoBT). The goal of this talk is to explore emerging approaches to support IoBT networks by means of techniques based on software defined networks (SDN), delay tolerant networks (DTN) and information centric networking (ICN). Additionally, an example of an intelligent IoBT-based law-enforcement application that may benefit from these techniques will be presented.

Short-bio: Prof. Dr. Edison Pignaton de Freitas received his Bac. degree in Computer Engineering from the Military Institute of Engineering, Brazil (2003), and his MSc degree in Computer Science from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil (2007). He received his PhD from Halmstad University, Sweden, (2011) in the area of sensor networks. During 2001-2002 he studied in France, at Institute National des Sciences Appliquées, Toulouse, with a scholarship from the Brazilian National Counsel of Technological and Scientific Development (CNPq).
Currently he holds a position as Associate Professor at Informatics Institute at UFRGS since 2014. He worked as Computer Engineer and Researcher at the Brazilian Army from 2004 to 2013, working in several areas, such as tactical edge networks, unmanned platforms and aerospace defense. During his stay in France, he performed an internship at AIRBUS Central Entity working in the avionics systems specification of the A380 airplane. His current main research interests are in: Computer Networks, Distributed Real-Time and Embedded Systems, Wireless Sensor Networks, Internet of Things and (multi-) Unmanned Aerial Vehicles systems.
