A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11902378B2) discloses a system comprising at least one storage device storing executable instructions and at least one processor. When executing the instructions, the processor causes the system to perform operations such as receiving a first instruction to start data acquisition, generating a second instruction to trigger sensors to acquire data, and sending instructions to the sensors based on specific delays to ensure synchronized data acquisition and transmission. The system includes image sensors and positioning sensors, with the delays and instructions tailored to optimize data acquisition and processing efficiency.

Furthermore, the patent details a method that involves receiving instructions for data acquisition, generating trigger instructions for sensors, and sending instructions for data transmission based on predetermined delays. The method ensures that the sensors start acquiring data simultaneously and send acquired data within specified time thresholds. By incorporating specific delays and instructions for different types of sensors, the system aims to streamline the data acquisition process and enhance overall system performance. This innovative approach to coordinating sensor activities showcases advancements in data processing technology and can have significant implications for various industries requiring precise and synchronized data collection and transmission.
