In this paper, we address the problem of devising a Quality of Experience (QoE) aware flight plan for UAV mounted Base Station within heterogeneous networks. Specifically, we propose a QoE aware flight planning algorithm leveraging the well established Q-learning approach and introducing a reward related to relevant QoE metrics. Numerical simulation results show the effectiveness of the QoE-aware learning algorithm to devise a flight path such that the UAVs mounted Base Station actually improves the QoE of the heterogeneous network users.

Abstract

In this paper, we address the problem of devising a Quality of Experience (QoE) aware flight plan for UAV mounted Base Station within heterogeneous networks. Specifically, we propose a QoE aware flight planning algorithm leveraging the well established Q-learning approach and introducing a reward related to relevant QoE metrics. Numerical simulation results show the effectiveness of the QoE-aware learning algorithm to devise a flight path such that the UAVs mounted Base Station actually improves the QoE of the heterogeneous network users.
