Maximal subsets of a point set which fit in a unit disk


Suppose that there are a set $ P$ of $ n$ points on the plane, and let $ P_1, \dots, P_k$ be not necessarily disjoint subsets of $ P$ such that every point in $ P_i|\ 1 \leq i \leq k$ fits inside a unit disk $ D_i$ .

Moreover, each $ P_i$ is maximal. This means that if the corresponding unit disk $ D_i$ moves to cover another point, then one point which was inside the disk will be uncovered.

Here is an example: enter image description here

In the above figure, there are three maximal subsets.

I don’t know whether this problem has a name or was studied before, but my question is:

  1. Can $ k$ be $ O(1)^n$ ?
  2. If not, then can we find those subsets in polynomial time w.r.t. $ n$ ?
