  • Patent number: 11949447
    Abstract: A wireless communication system includes a network manager configured to wirelessly communicate with a plurality of wireless nodes of a wireless network. The network manager and at least one wireless node include a transceiver connected to transmit and receive wireless communication via an antenna. The network manager and/or the wireless node include a cognitive engine configured to receive information regarding an environment of the wireless network as input and, in response, generate configuration data as output. Subsequent communication on the wireless network is updated using the configuration data.

  • Publication number: 20220074998
    Abstract: The battery monitoring techniques described herein use a self-characterizing wireless monitor coupled to a battery to monitor different properties of the battery. The wireless monitor may measure, among other things, an alternating current frequency response (ACFR) of the battery. To accomplish this, the wireless monitor may generate and inject a stimulus signal into the battery, and the monitor may then synchronously measure the corresponding impedance response of the battery.

  • Publication number: 20220074997
    Abstract: A wireless battery management system may include a network controller and a plurality of monitors coupled to a battery. The wireless battery management system may coordinate taking and gathering of alternating current frequency responses (ACFR) of the battery. The wireless battery management system may collect and store information spanning the lifecycle of the battery across different host devices.

  • Patent number: 11190958
    Abstract: A wireless communication system includes at least one transmitter and at least one receiver. The transmitter is configured to establish wireless link parameters and transmit a data communication using the wireless link parameters. The receiver is configured to receive the data communication, automatically identify one or more of the wireless link parameters using the data, and extract a payload using the identified wireless link parameters. Prior to receiving the data communication, the receiver requires limited information concerning the wireless link parameters established by the transmitter. The wireless link parameters can include selectable aspects such as one or more of a transmission channel, a transmission data rate, a modulation format, a transmission power, a packet format, and a channel coding scheme.

  • Patent number: 11190311
    Abstract: A system and method for increasing capacity and throughput in a wireless network includes a plurality of wireless nodes configured to communicate wirelessly with one another on respective frequency channels according to a schedule. The schedule includes timeslots. For respective timeslots, first and second transmitting wireless nodes generate transmissions for a receiving wireless node. The receiving wireless node includes a receiver circuit configured to receive the transmissions from the first and the second transmitting wireless nodes simultaneously and on separate frequency channels, and a transmitter circuit configured to generate acknowledgment packets for the first and the second transmitting wireless nodes upon receipt of the transmissions by the receiving wireless node.

  • Patent number: 11064418
    Abstract: A system and method for providing multiple modes of communication in wireless networks includes a network manager and a plurality of network nodes. The plurality of network nodes form a wireless network with the network manager and are configured to communicate data to the network manager using respective communication links having a first bandwidth. The plurality of network nodes are further configured to transition to a two-hop mode of communication upon one or more failures in communication to the network manager. While in the two-hop mode of communication, a respective network node of the plurality of nodes is configured to transmit node data to at least one other network node over a communication link having a second bandwidth different than the first bandwidth. The other network nodes are configured to listen for communication from the respective network node and re-transmit to the network manager the node data received from the respective network node.
