Collection description

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones are currently in the prominence of technology expansion of many organizations in different application fields including logistics, surveillance, security, emergency response, agriculture, and investigative science. Indeed, recent advances in unmanned vehicle technology set up new opportunities to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of drone systems that can be exploited by these organizations. However, there are many complex issues in modeling, solving, and implementing drone systems. These issues constitute a topic receiving considerable attention in the last years but the operations research community has only recently started to focus on them with particular reference to the logistic applications. This thesis brings together an overview of drone technology and applications, and a state-of-the-art of the operational research contributions to the optimization of drone systems. Moreover, it presents three optimization approaches to solve problems which consider the use of a truck and a drone to exploit the advantages of both the vehicles for last-mile deliveries.
