Description du projet :
The purpose of the RAWFIE initiative is to create a federation of different network testbeds that will work together to make their resources
available under a common framework. Specifically, it aims at delivering a unique, mixed experimentation environment across the space and
technology dimensions. RAWFIE will integrate numerous testbeds for experimenting in vehicular (road), aerial and maritime environments. A
Vehicular Testbed (VT) will deal with Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) while an Aerial Testbed (AT) and a Maritime Testbed (MT) will deal with
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) respectively. The RAWFIE consortium includes all the possible actors
of this highly challenging experimentation domain, from technology creators to integrators and facility owners. The basic idea behind the RAWFIE
effort is the automated, remote operation of a large number of robotic devices (UGVs, UAVs, USVs) for the purpose of assessing the performance
of different technologies in the networking, sensing and mobile/autonomic application domains. RAWFIE will feature a significant number of UxV
nodes for exposing to the experimenter a vast test infrastructure. All these items will be managed by a central controlling entity which will be
programmed per case and fully overview/drive the operation of the respective mechanisms (e.g., auto-pilots, remote controlled ground vehicles).
Internet connectivity will be extended to the mobile units to enable the remote programming (over-the-air), control and data collection. Support
software for experiment management, data collection and post-analysis will be virtualized to enable experimentation from everywhere in the world.
The vision of Experimentation-as-a-Service (EaaS) will be promoted through RAWFIE. The IoT paradigm will be fully adopted and further refined
for support of highly dynamic node architectures.
