  • Patent number: 10856160
    Abstract: A computing device initiates wireless RTT ranging communication with a wireless device by specifying a source address (e.g., a MAC address or BSSID) of the wireless device in frames sent to the wireless device. The computing device determines situations in which a wireless device is using multiple source addresses. If a wireless device is using multiple source addresses, the computing device performs wireless RTT ranging with the wireless device using less than all (e.g., a single one) of the multiple source addresses. The computing device performs wireless RTT ranging with less than all of the source addresses used by the wireless device because the distance between the computing device and the wireless device is the same regardless of which of the multiple source addresses the wireless device is using.

  • Patent number: 10855356
    Abstract: Apparatuses, methods, and systems are disclosed for preparing channel state information (“CSI”). One apparatus includes a processor and a transceiver configured to communicate with a base unit over a RAN using spatial multiplexing, wherein multiple transmission layers are transmitted at a time, each transmission layer comprising multiple beams. The processor identifies a set of non-zero amplitude parameters and a set of zero amplitude parameters over the set of layers. The processor computes a number of non-zero amplitude parameters and determines an indication of the number of non-zero amplitude parameters. The processor determines the location of zero amplitude parameters to generate a set of location bits. The processor prepares CSI that includes the indication of the number of non-zero amplitude parameters and the set of location bits. The transceiver transmits the CSI to the base unit.

  • Patent number: 10855678
    Abstract: Temporary biometric templates for maintaining a user authenticated state are described herein. In some implementation, an electronic device receives an input to unlock using a first secure authentication technique to initiate a current unlock session. A temporary biometric template of a biometric feature of a user unlocking the electronic device is created effective to initiate a user authenticated state. The biometric feature of the user associated with the temporary biometric template is tracked during the current unlock session. The user authenticated state is maintained based on a comparison of the tracked biometric feature of the user with the biometric feature of the temporary biometric template. When the biometric feature of the user can no longer be tracked, the user authenticated state is terminated and the temporary biometric template is invalidated.

  • Patent number: 10845864
    Abstract: A computing device includes a control system that communicates with multiple sensors that capture data regarding a user. The control system communicates with each of the sensors to obtain information regarding the capabilities of each sensor, and uses this capability information to determine how to configure each of the sensors. The control system also selects one of the multiple sensors to be the master sensor, and the rest of the multiple sensors are slave sensors, and notifies the multiple sensors of whether they are a slave sensor or a master sensor. The master sensor collects sensor data for the multiple sensors, capturing data itself as well as receiving data captured by the slave sensors from the slave sensors. The master sensor sends an indication of the collected data (e.g., the collected data itself or data resulting from processing the collected data) to the control system for analysis and/or processing.

  • Patent number: 10849034
    Abstract: Techniques for signal map for wireless connectivity are described, and may be implemented via a mobile device to utilize a signal map to manage wireless connectivity of the mobile device. For instance, based on a wireless scan event of a mobile device, the signal map can be queried with a location/orientation of the mobile device to determine if a wireless signal source that meets a signal threshold (e.g., a quality threshold) is available. If such wireless signal source is available, a fast acquisition process for connecting to the signal source can be performed. Otherwise, a general scan for an available wireless signal source can be performed. Further, based on a handover event that identifies a target signal source, the signal map can be queried to determine if the target signal source meets a signal threshold. The handover event can then be managed based on whether the target signal source meets the signal threshold.

  • Publication number: 20200367159
    Abstract: In aspects of device resource savings during cellular out-of-service condition, a device includes a cellular radio for cellular network communication via a cellular network. The device implements a communication manager that detects an out-of-service condition for lack of a cellular network connection with the device. The communication manager can communicate a notification to collaborative devices that the device is a master device implemented to scan for the cellular network during the out-of-service condition, and the notification serves to initiate the collaborative devices saving resources by switching-off respective cellular radios. The communication manager can initiate scans to detect the cellular network and establish the cellular network connection with the cellular network, and then communicate scan data associated with detection of the cellular network to the collaborative devices that use the scan data to establish respective cellular network connections with the cellular network.

  • Patent number: 10841774
    Abstract: Fast channel deployment is achieved amongst subscriber devices (SDs) having an incident scene role at an incident scene. An SD detects an incident scene arrival trigger associated with arrival at an incident scene. Responsive to detecting the incident scene arrival trigger, the SD (i) tunes to a pre-configured incident channel or (ii) scans a plurality of channels for an incident channel and tunes to the incident channel once located. The SD receives, via the incident channel, an incident scene role to traffic channel mapping that maps a particular incident scene role associated with the subscriber device to a particular assigned traffic channel on which subscriber devices associated with a same incident scene role may communicate. The SD tunes to the particular assigned traffic channel as a function of the incident scene role to traffic channel mapping.
