System and Method for Interactive Light Projection using IoT Drones and Vapor

There is a scope for an internet of things co-operation between mobile drones each working together to project images within a given area more dynamically than with existing projection resolutions.

A set of mobile drones, under an IOT framework, can be aligned to project images within a given area and respond to a moving users interaction with those images. Implementation

An area is equipped with the capability to emit vapors. ex. water vapors1. set of ventilation units1. stand-alone vapor devices ex. humidifiers2. etc.3.

A team of drones are equipped with projection capabilities.2. A user or set of users are identified to interact with the drone projection system.3. A initial image is projected by the drone(s) to create a hologram or other images. The4.

drones co-ordinate images focused upon areas covered by the vapors (step 1) across a given detected area. Light projection occurs from each drone projection system as the drones are instructed to move around to represent a changing image, for the observance of a moving user subject. The images/experience to be projected would have been pre-calculated based on a set area and then would need to coordinate the drones around the position of the person interacting. Using, by way of example only, MQTT for simple, small payloads, the new positions that the drones needs to adopt to continue the experience for the person would be sent as accelerometer coordinates which the drone would then move to. The drones then are essentially small projectors receiving their flight path in real-time from the payload master, of coordinates to move to, for the image to display for their contribution.

As the user interacts with the hologram:5. blocking some or all of the projected image(s)1.

(understanding the position of a user in respect to the image to assume an interaction with the hologram can be done using existing camera(s) and positioning techniques)

gestures2. voice commands3. etc.4.

The drone(s) moves itself around the user(s) to continue to project a clean image.6. As interactions with the hologram map to a set of actions taken by the user,7.

the hologram is modified to display adjusted graphic(s).1. ex. user hits a brake pedal in the projected car, the image reacts to that action by modifying the speed projected in the hologram car's dashboard.

the water vapor ventilation units are adjusted as necessarily to make sure the water2. vapors are present in the required locations. Example:

A person enters a room that serves as a car showroom where a model of car will be projected. Small-scale drones could move within the room and more dynamically project images associated with a car.

The showroom could us...
