  • Publication number: 20190222297
    Abstract: An example embodiment may involve flying, by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), to a geographical location, where a wireless router is at the geographical location. The example embodiment may also involve detecting, by the UAV, a wireless coverage area defined by the wireless router. The example embodiment may also involve accessing, by the UAV, the wireless coverage area using a network identifier and a password. The example embodiment may also involve establishing, by the UAV, a backhaul link to a data network. The example embodiment may also involve transmitting, by the UAV, a notification to a client device served by the wireless coverage area, where the notification indicates that the UAV is a default gateway for the wireless coverage area. The example embodiment may also involve exchanging, by the UAV, data transmissions between (i) the client device, and (ii) one or more other devices accessible via the data network.

  • Patent number: 10079635
    Abstract: An example embodiment may involve receiving a request to provide unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) based wireless coverage to a particular geographical location. Possibly in response to the request, a UAV may fly to the particular geographical location. A first wireless interface of the UAV may define a wireless coverage area that covers at least part of the particular geographical location. A second wireless interface of the UAV may establish a wireless backhaul link to a data network. The UAV may provide wireless data transfer services to at least one device in the particular geographical location, where the wireless data transfer services allow the device to exchange data communication with the data network via the UAV.

  • Patent number: 8407000
    Abstract: An image-augmented inertial navigation system includes an inertial navigation system configured to estimate a navigation state vector and an imager configured to output pixel signals associated with terrain features passing through a field view of the imager. The system further includes a processing unit configured to determine a distance from the imager to each of the pixel signals for a given image frame and to determine a distance between the imager and a centroid of one or more of the terrain features passing through the field of view of the imager for the given image frame. The processing unit is also configured to track each terrain feature as the terrain features pass through the field of view of the imager. The processing unit is further configured to update the navigation state vector of the inertial navigation system based on calculated NED coordinates position information of the tracked terrain features.

  • Patent number: 7725260
    Abstract: An image-augmented inertial navigation system (LAWS) mounted on a vehicle (10) includes an inertial navigation system (INS) configured to estimate a navigation state vector and an imager (12) configured to output pixel signals associated with terrain features passing through a field of view (x, y, z) of the imager. The system (IAINS) further includes a processing unit operatively connected to the inertial navigation system (INS) and the imager (12). The processing unit is configured to sense a distance from the imager to a centroid of one or more of the terrain features passing though a field of view of the imager for a given image frame associated with the feature pixel signals. The processing unit is also configured to track each terrain feature as the terrain features pass through the field of view of the imager.

  • Patent number: 5640092
    Abstract: The device comprises a target signal transmitter to induce an electromagnetic signal in the hidden object, a position reference transmitter to transmit a signal for positioning purposes, a sensor unit to detect changes in the magnetic flux of the hidden object due to the induced electromagnetic signal and the positioning signal from the position reference transmitter, and a central unit to process and display a map of the hidden object. The initial processing of the data results in a gray-scale representation of the object, but additional data processing may be performed.
