The unmanned aerial vehicles are deployed in multiple layers to monitor an area and report the information to the ground control station. When we use a single communication protocol such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)/Wi-Fi with low range, the data has to pass through multiple hops for data transfer. This in turn, increases the delay for data transmission. Even though LoRa protocol supports longer distances, the delay is more due to the limited bandwidth. Thus, in this work, we propose a hybrid BLE/LTE/Wi-Fi/LoRa switching scheme that consumes lower energy in addition to reducing the average delay in the network. The proposed scheme switches between the communication technologies based on the lower energy consumption. The performance of the proposed hybrid switching scheme is compared with the individual communication protocols in terms of both energy consumption and average delay. Through extensive numerical results, we show that the proposed hybrid switching scheme performs better in comparison to the individual communication technologies. © 2021 IEEE.
