  • Publication number: 20220014931
    Abstract: When data transmitted from devices is processed by servers in a shared manner, the data is processed in a constantly stable manner when the devices move. Based on information indicating installation positions and processing capabilities of the servers, information on installation positions of base stations, and acquired location information of the devices, the coverage area control apparatus performs, at a certain time interval, a clustering calculation for obtaining an optimum coverage area for the servers that satisfies the requirements that the communication distances between the servers and the respective devices be minimized and the servers not be overloaded. Based on the information indicating the optimum coverage area obtained by the clustering calculation, assignments of the base stations to the servers are updated.
