Application: Dynamic transmission control for a wireless network (Patent ID: US20240080876A1)

The patent filed by AeroVironment Inc. describes a wireless network with dynamic transmission control involving an arbiter node and multiple client nodes. The arbiter node is responsible for defining communication operation cycles and allocating bandwidth to each client node on a cycle-by-cycle basis in response to bandwidth requests. The system allows for prioritization of bandwidth requests and the ability to adjust operation cycles based on these requests, ensuring efficient and effective communication within the network.

Furthermore, the patent details the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle as the arbiter node in a DDL session, showcasing the versatility and adaptability of the system. The unmanned aerial vehicle can control multiple client nodes, including other unmanned vehicles or ground stations, by defining communication operation cycles and allocating bandwidth based on priority. The arbiter node can also vary operation cycles, relinquish control to another node, and adjust transmission start times and durations based on client node requests. Additionally, the unmanned aerial vehicle can monitor for existing DDL sessions, initiate sessions if none are detected, control ground units, receive vehicle control commands from client nodes, relay data between nodes, and prioritize bandwidth allocation based on data priority. This patent highlights the innovative use of unmanned aerial vehicles in wireless networks with dynamic transmission control, offering a comprehensive and efficient communication solution for various applications.
