Zhuoxun is an Honours student of Bachelor of Advanced Computing, majored in computer science. He is currently involved in Drone-based Services project and doing the 3D visualization of path planning using drones, under the supervision of Prof. Athman Bouguettaya at the University of Sydney. His other interests include photography and traveling.
3D Visualization of Congestion-Aware Path Planning for Drone Delivery
Drones are a new type of IoT devices that offer cost-effective and fast delivery services. The potential utilization of drones is limited by payload capacity and battery consumption constraints. Drones may need multiple times of recharge for persistent delivery operation. The drone delivery environment is highly constrained because the availability of recharging stations is not guaranteed. The drones usually operate in a skyway network which is constructed by linking the skyway segments. Each skyway segment connects two nodes which are the rooftops of the high-rise buildings. Each node may serve as a recharging station or a delivery target. This project aims at designing and implementing an interactive 3D visualization of congestion-aware path planning for drone deliveries.
