  • Publication number: 20190155312
    Abstract: A node (121-123) of a wireless communications network (120) and an aerial vehicle (110), such as an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), a drone, an aircraft, or a helicopter, comprising a communications module (111) are provided. The node is operative, in response to detecting that the aerial vehicle enters a pre-defined geographical region (221-227) within a coverage area of the wireless communications network, to transmit a cell broadcast message (126; 201-204) to the aerial vehicle. The aerial vehicle is operative to receive the cell broadcast message from an access node (121) of the wireless communications network, and, in response thereto, correct its flight path (211-214) based on the received cell broadcast message. Preferably, the cell broadcast message comprises at least one, or a combination, of an instruction, a limitation, a restriction, a direction or a change thereof, a bearing or a change thereof, an altitude or a change thereof, an aerial vehicle type, and an aerial vehicle identity.

  • Publication number: 20170257664
    Abstract: The present disclosure proposes a system, a method, and electronic devices for providing a user with immersive experience comprising special effects (SFX) during playback of a media stream. The system may comprise a content delivery server, an IoT gateway, and at least one IoT device. The content delivery server transmits the media stream comprising an SFX instruction. The IoT gateway monitors the media stream from the content delivery server; determine the SFX instruction from the media stream; determine, according to the SFX instruction, at least one IoT device which is able to provide at least one special effect corresponding to the SFX instruction; and transmit to the at least one IoT device an IoT device specific command corresponding to the SFX instruction. The at least one IoT device receives the IoT device specific command from the IoT gateway; and provide the special effect according to the command.

  • Patent number: 9485673
    Abstract: An approach is provided for coordinating information request messages over an ad-hoc mesh network. A module receives at least one request to transmit one or more information request messages over an ad-hoc mesh network. The module determines context information associated with at least a portion of the ad-hoc mesh network, one or more nodes within the at least a portion of the ad-hoc mesh network, or a combination thereof. The module then determines to transmit the one or more information request messages over the ad-hoc mesh network based, at least in part, on the context information.
