(54) Title (EN): FUNCTIONAL ELEMENT POSE DETERMINATION
(54) Title (FR): DÉTERMINATION DE POSE D'ÉLÉMENT FONCTIONNEL

(57) Abstract:
(EN): A system to determine a pose of functional elements includes a set of functional elements, with each of the functional elements including a housing and a processor, memory, power supply, sensor, and wireless communication module each within the housing, and a position module to determine a position of a respective one of the functional elements based on a field of known intensity sensed by the respective one of the functional elements in each a first orientation of the system, a second orientation of the system rotated relative to the first orientation of the system, and a third orientation of the system rotated relative to the second orientation of the system.
(FR): L'invention concerne un système permettant de déterminer une pose d'éléments fonctionnels comprenant un ensemble d'éléments fonctionnels, chacun des éléments fonctionnels comprenant un boîtier et un processeur, une mémoire, une alimentation électrique, un capteur et un module de communication sans fil, chacun à l'intérieur du boîtier, et un module de position afin de déterminer une position d'un élément fonctionnel respectif parmi les éléments fonctionnels en fonction d'un champ d'intensité connue détecté par l'élément fonctionnel respectif parmi les éléments fonctionnels dans une première orientation du système, une deuxième orientation du système tournée par rapport à la première orientation du système et une troisième orientation du système tournée par rapport à la deuxième orientation du système.
