Title (EN) SYSTEMS, DEVICES, AND METHODS FOR RELAYING COMMUNICATIONS USING AUTONOMOUS DRONES
(FR) SYSTÈMES, DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS POUR RELAYER DES COMMUNICATIONS À L'AIDE DE DRONES AUTONOMES
Abstract:
(EN) Methodologies, systems, and computer-readable media are provided for generating a dynamic 3D communication map. Data is collected from a number of autonomous drones as they navigate through a particular area. The autonomous drones can collect environmental data, location data, signal strength data, signal usability data, etc. and transmit that data back to a computing system. The computing system analyzes the data received from the autonomous drones and generates a dynamic 3D communication map that indicates the signal strength and/or the signal usability of various wireless communication signals as a function of time and other variables.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des méthodologies, des systèmes et des supports lisibles par ordinateur pour générer une carte de communication 3D dynamique. Des données sont collectées à partir d'un certain nombre de drones autonomes lorsqu'ils naviguent dans une zone particulière. Les drones autonomes peuvent collecter des données environnementales, des données de position, des données d'intensité de signal, des données d'exploitabilité de signal, etc., et transmettre ces données à un système informatique. Le système informatique analyse les données envoyées par les drones autonomes et génère une carte de communication 3D dynamique qui indique l'intensité de signal et/ou l'exploitabilité de signal de divers signaux de communication sans fil en fonction du temps et d'autres variables.
