FANET, Routing Protocols


Flying Ad hoc Network is a collection of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s). In multi-UAV system nodes fly in the air and communicate with each other by creating ad hoc network. If all the nodes are directly connected to the infrastructure than is restrict the capabilities of multi-UAV system. The main Challenge in FANET is routing because of rapidly changing topology, high mobility, and long distance between UAV’s. The routing protocols designed for VANET and MANET partially failed in FANET. So this is a new emerging area of research to discover robust protocol for FANET. In this paper we have studied different routing protocols for FANET and how they vary from VANET and MANET.
