  • Patent number: 11188775
    Abstract: Using sensor hubs for tracking an object. One system includes a first sensor hub and a second sensor hub. The first sensor hub includes a first audio sensor and a first electronic processor. In response to determining that one or more words captured by the first audio sensor is included in the list of trigger words, the first electronic processor generates a first voice signature of a voice of an unidentified person, generates a tracking profile, and transmits the tracking profile to the second sensor hub. The second sensor hub receives the tracking profile and includes a second electronic processor, a second audio sensor, and a camera. In response to determining that a second voice signature matches the first voice signature, the second electronic processor is configured to determine a visual characteristic of the unidentified person based on an image from the camera and update the tracking profile.

  • Publication number: 20210368412
    Abstract: In aspects of managing FTM frames of WLAN RTT bursts, a device can receive a WLAN RTT burst, such as initiated by a device application, device firmware, or received as a RTT ranging request. The device implements a status module that interposes the routing of the ranging request in the device, and determines a device state of the device with a device state monitor of the status module. The status module is implemented to drop the ranging request if the device is an idle device state such that the ranging request is extraneous. Alternatively, the status module is implemented to reduce a number of FTM frames in the ranging request based on the device state indicating that multiple FTM frames of the ranging request are extraneous, and then route to perform the ranging request of the WLAN RTT burst with the reduced number of FTM frames in the ranging request.

  • Patent number: 11184742
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for determining an individual's identity who has authority to add a user to a talkgroup (approver) is provided herein. During operation, a context of a user requesting access to a talkgroup is determined. Past contexts for individuals who have requested access to past talkgroups are determined along with past approvers who approved adding the individual to the talkgroup. The current context is used to find similar past contexts and the past approver for the similar past context. The past approver is then used to authorize the current request for approving joining of the talkgroup.

  • Publication number: 20210357801
    Abstract: A user can customize (also referred to as train) an AI module, which includes any of a variety of machine learning systems. The AI module can be used by the device on which the AI module is trained or can be communicated to other devices in the same environment (e.g., the same home). The AI module can also be communicated in a secure and private manner to a device in another environment (e.g., another user's home). To do so, the AI module is encrypted and added to a blockchain, and the blockchain is communicated via a peer-to-peer network to the device in the other environment. The recipient of the blockchain can then decrypt the AI module and use the AI module in that other environment, including further training the AI module for use in that other environment.

  • Patent number: 11170223
    Abstract: A process for fixed camera and unmanned mobile device collaboration is disclosed in order to improve identification of an object of interest. A first point of view (POV) of a captured object is obtained and it is determined, with a first level of certainty, that the captured first POV of the object matches a stored object of interest. A dispatch instruction and intercept information is then wirelessly broadcast for receipt by camera-equipped unmanned mobile vehicles within a broadcast range for identifying and intercepting the object. Subsequently, a captured second POV of the first captured object is received via the one or more camera-equipped unmanned mobile vehicles. The captured second POV of the captured object is used to determine, with a second level of certainty, that the captured object matches the stored object of interest.
