  • Publication number: 20200404519
    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: 10873833
    Abstract: In aspects of location correlation in a region, a mobile device implements a location module that determines a current location of the mobile device in a region within communication range of a radio system based on location data received in radio signals from the radio system. The location module determines region coordinates at the current location of the mobile device in the region. The location module can then associate the region coordinates at the current location of the mobile device in the region with pixel grid coordinates determined from a digital image view as captured by a camera system in the region, and generate a location mapping of the region based on the current location and subsequent locations of the mobile device in the region. The location mapping correlates the locations of the mobile device in the region based on the pixel grid coordinates at the respective locations.

    Abstract: A method and converged LMR/LTE communications device provide for minimizing interference in the converged LMR/LTE communications device that operates in a land mobile radio (LMR) narrowband communication system and a long term evolution (LTE) broadband communication system. The converged LMR/LTE communications device detects, using an electronic processing device, that the converged LMR/LTE communications device is operating in the first LTE band and the first LMR band. The converged LMR/LTE communications device determines that a first LMR received signal strength indicator (RSSI) at the converged LMR/LTE communications device is less than a first LMR threshold signal strength and disables at least one LTE application based upon the first LMR RSSI being less than the LMR threshold signal strength.

  • Patent number: 10867494
    Abstract: A process for dynamic vehicular threat detection perimeter modification for an exited vehicular occupant includes prior to detecting a vehicular occupant exiting the vehicle, establishing a first sized vehicular geofence surrounding the vehicle as a function of one or more stored vehicular perimeter distances. The first sized vehicular geofence is monitored for a first breach via one of a 360 degree vehicular light imaging and radio wave distancing system. In response to detecting that the vehicular occupant previously inside the vehicle has exited the vehicle, the one or more stored vehicular perimeter distances is modified as a function of a detected location of the exited vehicular occupant to establish a second sized vehicular geofence surrounding the vehicle different than the first sized vehicular geofence. The second sized vehicular geofence is monitored for a second breach via one of the 360 degree vehicular light imaging and radio wave distancing system.
