This paper presents a wireless communication solution enabled by unmanned aerial vehicles and intelligent reflecting surfaces for catering to the wireless communication needs of smart factories. The simulation results show the comparison of indoor and outdoor deployment of intelligent reflecting surfaces. Furthermore, a relation of cross-sectional area of reflecting surface to required bandwidth is shown graphically.
