Integration of RAWFIE "newcomers"

RAWFIE aims to create a federation of different 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 integrates numerous testbeds for experimenting in vehicular (road), aerial and maritime environments. Vehicular Testbeds (VT) will deal with Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) while Aerial Testbeds (AT) and Maritime Testbeds (MT) will deal with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs), respectively. All these items are 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).

In terms of integration, different actors (UxV providers, experimenters) follow different processes in order to join RAWFIE federation based on their needs. Each actor receives specific guidelines that ensure the correction remote operation of the RAWFIE platform.
