Application: Intelligent panel regulation and control method, device, and system, intelligent panel, and storage medium (Patent ID: US20240056128A1)

The patent filed by ZTE Corp. describes an intelligent metasurface manipulation method, apparatus, and system, along with an intelligent metasurface and a storage medium. The method involves determining channel and beam manipulation information, optimizing a manipulation parameter in a target function, determining a target manipulation state for each electromagnetic unit on the metasurface, and adjusting the current state of each unit accordingly. The apparatus includes a memory storing executable instructions for intelligent panel regulation and control, while the system involves communication between different nodes to optimize and control wireless electromagnetic waves. The metasurface is formed by an array of electromagnetic units, which can be made of various materials and manipulated to control properties like amplitude, phase, and polarization direction.

The method utilizes genetic or gradient descent algorithms to optimize manipulation parameters based on channel and beam information, with the metasurface being formed by an array of electromagnetic units that can be of sub-wavelength size and made of materials like metal, dielectric, or liquid crystal. The system involves communication between different nodes to optimize wireless electromagnetic waves, with the metasurface capable of manipulating properties like amplitude, phase, and polarization direction. The apparatus includes a memory storing instructions for intelligent panel regulation and control, while the storage medium stores a computer program for performing the manipulation method. Real-time measurement is used to determine the number and positions of communication nodes, and the electromagnetic units can include adjustable electronic components like resistors, capacitors, diodes, varactor diodes, or triodes for manipulation.
