  • Patent number: 10678264
    Abstract: A virtualized environment corresponding to a physical environment currently surrounding a robot is displayed. The virtualized environment is updated in accordance with streaming environment data received from sensors collocated with the robot. A first user input inserting a first virtual object at a first location in the virtualized environment is detected. The virtualized environment is modified in accordance with the insertion of the first virtual object at the first location. The first virtual object at the first location causes the robot to execute a first navigation path in the physical environment. A second user input is detected that moves the first virtual object along a movement path to a second location in the virtualized environment. The movement path is constrained by simulated surfaces in the virtualized environment, and the first virtual object at the second location causes the robot to execute a modified navigation path in the physical environment.

Alternatively or additionally, the power headroom value may be calculated based on an average of the UE transmission power over multiple sTTI periods in a subframe. Alternatively or additionally, the power headroom value may be calculated based on a maximum or minimum of the UE transmission power measured over multiple sTTI periods in a subframe. Alternatively or additionally, the power headroom value may be calculated based on UE transmission power measured in the first or the last sTTI period in a subframe.
