    Abstract: An electronic device, computer program product, and method enable selection and presentation of media content associated with a person identified in a monitored space. The electronic device includes a device interface that is communicatively coupled to a media output device that presents media content in the monitored area. A controller of the electronic device is communicatively coupled to sensor(s) and the media output device. The controller presents a default selection of media content on the media output device. The controller monitors the sensor(s) to detect a presence of a person within or approaching the monitored area. The controller identifies the person. The controller selects, from among a plurality of available media content, media content that is associated with the identified person. The controller presents the selected media content on the media output device.

  • Patent number: 11562051
    Abstract: A computing device supports the use of multiple different authenticators for a user to unlock his or her computing device and access his or her user account. An authenticator refers to something that the user knows or has that can be compared to known authentication data in order to authenticate the user. In one or more embodiments, the behavior of the computing device varies for different authenticators by displaying user-selectable content in different visibility modes based on which authenticator is used to authenticate the user. In one content visibility mode content is fully visible on the computing device display screen, whereas in another content visibility mode content visibility on the computing device display screen is reduced. Additionally or alternatively, the behavior of the computing device varies for different authenticators by using different authenticators for different contexts of the computing device.

  • Patent number: 11556174
    Abstract: A monitoring system incorporates, and method and computer program product provide a contextual gaze detection based user selection for prompting caregiver actions by a person with ambulatory and communication deficits or limitations. A controller of the monitoring system receives receiving at least one image stream from a camera system comprising at least one image capturing device. The camera system captures a first image stream that encompasses eyes of a person and a second image stream that at least partially encompasses surrounding object(s) and surface(s) viewable by the person. The controller determines an eye gaze direction of the person and a region of interest (ROI) aligned with the eye gaze direction. The controller identifies an object and associated caregiver action contained within the ROI. The controller communicates a notification to an output device, which presents to a second person, an indication of interest by the person in the caregiver action.

  • Patent number: 11558664
    Abstract: An electronic device, computer program product, and method manage presenting and pausing of media content in response to locally detected visual and aural interruptions. The electronic device is configured to determine, using one or more sensors from among: (i) an image capturing device positioned to have a field of view of a monitored area and (ii) a microphone positioned to detect sounds in or near the monitored area. A consumer is in the monitored area during presenting of media content by a media output device. The electronic device is configured to monitor the one or more sensors to determine whether an interruption is occurring that can degrade consumer experience relative to the presenting of the media content. In response to determining that the interruption is occurring, the electronic device is configured to pause the presenting of the media content on the media output device.

  • Patent number: 11550364
    Abstract: A flexible display includes a foldable display coupled to a foldable substrate. The foldable substrate is preformed to maintain a curvilinear three-dimensional shape when in a neutral, force-free state. The curvilinear three-dimensional shape can simulate one or more contours of an electronic device housing to which the flexible display is attached, thereby reducing or minimizing stress loads on the flexible display as the electronic device housing transitions between an axially displaced open position and a closed position.

  • Patent number: 11543860
    Abstract: In aspects of adaptive grip suppression, a wireless device has a display screen with curved display edges to display a selectable element in a region of a curved display edge. The wireless device implements an adaptive control module to adaptively tune grip suppression in the curved display edges of the display screen, which limits a device application action from being initiated based on inadvertent touch inputs on the selectable element. The adaptive control module can adaptively tune the grip suppression by decreasing the grip suppression in the region of the curved display edge proximate the selectable element responsive to false rejects indicating that the device application action is not initiating responsive to intended touch inputs, or by increasing the grip suppression in the region of the curved display edge proximate the selectable element responsive to false accepts indicating that the device application action is initiating responsive to inadvertent touch inputs.

  • Patent number: 11545741
    Abstract: Multiple feed, front-shielded, coplanar waveguide, direct-fed, cavity-backed slot antennas are described. Various implementations form an antenna unit capable of millimeter waveform and/or microwave waveform transmissions. An antenna comprises a conductive plate that includes an aperture. The aperture has a shape that extends along an axis that bisects the aperture into first and second bisected portions, the first bisected portion having a first geometry type, and the second portion having a second geometry type that is a bilateral symmetry shape type of the first geometry type. In implementations, the aperture is configured to radiate waveforms within a frequency range from about between 600 Megahertz (MHz) to 72 Gigahertz (GHz) by applying multiple signal feeds to the conductive plate.

  • Patent number: 11540179
    Abstract: Techniques for multiple call types for a call event are described and may be implemented via a wireless device to enable multiple connections for wireless calls. For instance, redundant connections for a call event of a wireless device are established via different call types and utilized to exchange call media of the call event. In at least some implementations, call media from the different call types is combined to provide a combined media stream for output as part of the call event. Thus, techniques for multiple call types for a call event are applicable to increase call quality in different scenarios and environments, such as in situations where a primary call connection experiences an anomaly condition that causes quality call degradation.
