Abstract

In this paper a simulator for the management of a team of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and drones has been proposed. This new network is known as Fly Ad-Hoc Network (FANET), and it is a particular type of Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) but with some specific aspects that allow to provide new services in future generation networks. One of the possible applications is emergency situations or scenario where drones can provide an additional or complementary access networks supporting web services and multimedia traffic. In this paper a simulator for FANET deploying has been proposed providing the possibility to simulate different scenarios with different coverage areas. New coverage model has been included in the features and also interesting human mobility model to support more realistic users mobility. Moreover, additional modules for traffic pattern generation have been implemented to create scenario where mobile users can activate multimedia calls and traffic on FANET. Some simulations have been led out to show how the simulator works.
