Flying Through the Fog: Aerial Drones in Supply Chain Delivery

by Charles C. Byers and Katalin K. Bartfai-Walcott

In this article, the authors address the criteria for operating unmanned aerial vehicles, or “aerial drones,” in a fog architecture. The use of drones in supply chain delivery offers faster, more cost-effective delivery but also poses myriad concerns, ranging from collision to security risks, as well as regulatory concerns. Specific attributes of the fog computing architecture — secure operations, autonomous capabilities, and system availability — benefit aerial drones. The authors examine two types of drone delivery — individual drones and drones working together (“hives”) — to show how fog computing facilitates drone operations and helps overcome challenges.
