Autonomous Unmanned System (AUS) such as unmanned aerial/ground/surface/ underwater vehicles (UAV-UGV-USV-UUV) has gained significant attentions in recent years. It has the potential to revolutionize the way to perform tasks and thus broaden the application scenarios including transportation, defense, agriculture, and disaster response.

The success of the AUSs relies heavily on the advancements in communication and networking technologies to facilitate the exchange of critical information between the systems and their operators, enabling real-time decision-making, coordination, and control. With the increasing complexity and diversity of these systems, there is a growing need for innovative communication and networking solutions that can meet the demands of high bandwidth, low latency, and secure data transmission.

Emerging communication and networking technologies for AUSs can enable efficient data sharing, real-time collaboration, and reliable communication in challenging environments. Furthermore, they can enhance the safety, autonomy, and performance of unmanned systems, making them more suitable for complex and dynamic missions.

The integration of cutting-edge communication and networking technologies with AUSs has become a critical research area, offering immense potential for innovation and growth. The increasing deployment of AUS in networked environments presents new challenges related to scalability, reliability, and efficiency of the communication and networking technologies. The theme of our upcoming workshop, “Emerging Communication and Networking Technologies for Autonomous Unmanned Systems,” aims to address these challenges and explore the latest advancements in this field.
