Title (EN) SYSTEMS, DEVICES, AND METHODS FOR GENERATING VEHICLE ROUTES WITHIN SIGNAL COVERAGE ZONES
(FR) SYSTÈMES, DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS DE GÉNÉRATION D'ITINÉRAIRES DE VÉHICULES À L'INTÉRIEUR DE ZONES DE COUVERTURE DE SIGNAL
Abstract:
(EN) Methodologies, systems, and computer-readable media are provided for generating vehicle routes for autonomous drones. Wireless communication signal strength data is collected from a dynamic 3D communication map indicating a first low coverage zone, and an initial navigation route is generated to guide an autonomous drone to avoid the first low coverage zone. Updated wireless communication signal strength data can be received from the dynamic 3D communication map, and an updated navigation route generated in order to guide the autonomous drone to avoid a second low coverage zone.
(FR) L'invention concerne des méthodologies, des systèmes et des supports lisibles par ordinateur qui permettent de générer des itinéraires de véhicules pour drones autonomes. Des données d'intensité de signal de communication sans fil sont collectées auprès d'une carte de communication 3D dynamique indiquant une première zone de faible couverture, et une route de navigation initiale est générée pour guider un drone autonome de manière à éviter la première zone de faible couverture. Des données d'intensité de signal de communication sans fil mises à jour peuvent être reçues de la carte de communication 3D dynamique, et un itinéraire de navigation mis à jour peut être généré afin de guider le drone autonome de manière à éviter une seconde zone de faible couverture.
