A CrazyRadio is a 2.4GHZ usb bluetooth dongle and a Crazyflie is a programmable quadrotor used by researchers in the field of distributed computing. A Crazyflie is controlled remotely from a computer or a smartphone through a Crazyradio. However the communication protocol on the CrazyRadio can communicate only with one Crazyflie after pairing, therefore implementing a swarm requires many changes which are prone to failures. This thesis proposes a communication protocol for distributed and highly dynamic systems. The proposed protocol is a combination of two communication protocols: Slotted-Aloha and time division multiple access (TDMA).The implementation of the proposed protocol is done on Crazyradios and Crazyflies. With the proposed protocol a Crazyradio communicates with multiple Crazyradios and Crazyflies. Communication between Crazyradios facilitates realtime data transfer between any type of bots connected to these Crazyradios, adding towards the implementation of swarms of robots.
