Abstract

With the relaxation of regulations on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the USA, the development of related industries is expected. Hence, it is anticipated that the number the UAVs will reach approximately 600,000 in the USA in 2017. However, automated flights of commercial UAVs are restricted owing to concerns about accidents. To deal with the possibility of collisions, several studies on collision prevention and the routing of UAVs have been conducted. However, these studies do not deal with various situations dynamically or provide efficient solutions. Therefore, we propose a centralized routing method for the UAV that uses vehicular networks. In the proposed scheme, vehicular networks regard UAVs as data packets to be routed. Accordingly, the proposed method reduces UAV processing power required for route searches. In addition, the routing efficiency for UAV flight paths can be improved since congestion can be minimized by using a vehicular network.
