Claim of US Patent No. 10,707,575

1. A computer system for controlling an amount of radiated power that is transmitted to a particular location, the computer system comprising:one or more processors;
one or more antennas; and
one or more computer-readable hardware storage devices having stored thereon computer-executable instructions that are executable by the one or more processors and that cause the computer system to:
determine position information for each of the one or more antennas;
determine environmental information for a defined three-dimensional space within which each of the one or more antennas is operating;
determine an antenna radiation pattern for each of the one or more antennas;
identify, within the defined three-dimensional space, one or more points of interest, wherein a collective power that is radiated to the one or more points of interest and that is transmitted from a combination of the one or more antennas will be restricted to be less than a determined threshold; and
control the collective power that is radiated to the one or more points of interest and that is transmitted from the combination of the one or more antennas so that the collective power is less than the determined threshold, wherein the controlling of the collective power is based on 1) the position information for each of the one or more antennas, 2) the environmental information for the defined three-dimensional space, and 3) the antenna radiation pattern for each of the one or more antennas.
