Radio-frequency noise generated by equipment in the server halls of data centers can degrade WiFi access within the data center, thereby hampering the ability of personnel to complete their tasks. An up-to-date, detailed, and accurate heatmap of WiFi signal quality enables planners to plan WiFi coverage within server halls. This disclosure describes techniques to generate a heatmap of WiFi signals and electromagnetic noise in closed spaces such as warehouses, server halls of data centers, etc. using autonomous vehicles. The techniques enable the continuous and accurate automated collection of data pertaining to the evolving WiFi environment within the server hall.
