Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are a promising technology employed as moving aggregators and wireless power transmitters for IoT networks. In this paper, we consider an UAV-IoT wireless energy and data transmission system and the decision-making problem is investigated. We aim at optimizing the nodes' utilities by defining a good packet delivery and energy transfer policy according to the system state. We formulate the problem as a Markov Decision Process (MDP) to tackle the successive decision issues. As the MDP formalism achieves its limits when the neighbors' interactions are considered, we formulate the problem as a Graph-based MDP (GMDP). We then propose a Mean-Field Approximation (MFA) algorithm to find a solution. The simulation results show that our framework achieves a good analysis of the system behavior. © 2020 IEEE.
