Title: AUTOMATIC WIRELESS MODE SWITCHING
Abstract:
Example embodiments of the present disclosure generally relate to automatic wireless mode switching in wireless communication devices and systems, and methods of automatic wireless mode switching. In one example embodiment, a wireless communication device generally includes a wireless communication interface configured to transmit data to a remote device via wireless communication, and a controller configured to control a mode of operation of the wireless communication device and to automatically switch the mode of operation of the wireless communication device between at least a first mode of operation and a second mode of operation. The first mode of operation is one of a client mode of operation, an access point mode of operation, an ad hoc mode of operation, a dual mode operation and a tri-mode operation. The second mode of operation is one of a dual mode operation and a tri-mode operation.
