Information transfer between vehicles by using drones


This disclosure is about worksite information sharing with a drone, which is relevant in areas without phone coverage. Basic idea is to utilize flying drones to share worksite information between machines. Drones fly to machine, use wireless transfer to share data with the machine and then drone flies to another machine and shares information with that machine. This is repeated until all machines on site have same information.

Sites could be construction places like for roads, agricultural fields, parks or forests. Machines may be excavators, grades, trucks, sprayers, tractors, combines, balers working in a fleet, tree harvesters and forwarders, whereas the latter receive information about logs put on the ground by the harvester.
