Claim of US Patent No. 11,032,865

1. A system for maintaining wireless connectivity between a mobile controller and a remote controller, comprising:a wireless adaptor operatively coupled to the mobile controller and being configured to have a background scanning mode wherein the wireless connectivity may be maintained as a primary connection between the mobile controller and the remote controller on a first channel while scanning is conducted to seek an alternate connection between the mobile controller and the remote controller on a second channel;
wherein the mobile controller is configured to operate the wireless adaptor to automatically:
scan to find an available wireless access point;
connect to the remote controller through the available wireless access point with the first channel and evaluate a connectivity rating of the first channel connection by sending first data via the first channel through the available wireless access point to a first remote server; and
while maintaining the wireless connectivity between the mobile controller and the remote controller through the first channel connection,
scan, using the second channel, to find an alternative wireless access point and,
connect to the remote controller through the alternative wireless access point with the second channel and evaluate a connectivity rating of the second channel connection by sending second data via the second channel through the alternative wireless access point to a second remote server,
compare the connectivity of the first channel connection via the available wireless access point connected through the first channel with the connectivity of the second channel connection via the alternative wireless access point connected through the second channel, and
while maintaining the wireless connectivity between the mobile controller and the remote controller, switching, based on comparing the evaluated connectivity ratings of the first and second channel connections, from a lowest evaluated channel connection to a highest evaluated channel connection to be used as the primary wireless connection between the mobile controller and the remote controller.
