The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of inter-connected devices, objects, and organisms. Among these devices, drones are gaining lots of interest. Drones are expected to communicate with cellular networks in the next generation networks (5G and beyond) which opens the door for another exciting research area. This book considers very important research areas in drone and cellular networks. It addresses major issues and challenges in drone-based solutions proposed for IoT-enabled cellular/computer networks, routing/communication protocols, surveillances applications, secured data management, and positioning approaches. It focuses mainly on smart and context-aware implementations.
