Coming from Pakistan, Samira Hayat’s first encounter with the word “drones” was not a positive one. She was offered the possibility to work with commercial small drones in 2012. The fascination that she felt with the capabilities of these flying robots has only increased with time. She has analyzed the communication demands of different aerial network application domains. Currently, she is working on algorithms for search and rescue application, where multiple drones are used to perform the mission in resource optimal manner, both in terms of devices and communication.
