  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20210344560
    Abstract: A change in the emotional state of a user of a device is detected, and in response to this change a reason for the change in user emotional state is determined. This determination is made based on both the current user emotional state and context data for the device or user. The device then adapts to the user based on the current emotional state and the reason for the change in user emotional state. This adaptation of the computing device refers to an alteration of the operation of the computing device with a goal of increasing the likelihood of the user being in a good emotional state (e.g., happy, relaxed) and reducing the likelihood of the user being in a bad emotional state (e.g., sad, angry).

  • Patent number: 11164602
    Abstract: A method, a mobile device, and a computer program product for detecting loss of attention during play of media content in a mobile device. The method includes, during playback of first media content, receiving first data indicative of whether a consumer of the first media content is actively consuming the first media content. The method further includes evaluating, based on a comparison of the first data with comparative data, whether the first data indicates that the consumer is likely not currently paying attention to playback of the first media content. The method further includes identifying, based on a time of receipt of the first data that indicates that the consumer is not paying attention, a first time within the first media content at which the consumer stopped paying attention during the playback and resetting a playback location of the first media content to continue playback from the first time.

  • Patent number: 11164119
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for automatically assigning roles for an incident to user profiles using machine learning techniques to optimize the overall suitability of the automatic role assignments and to adapt to manual role reassignments. One or more roles of a plurality of roles for an incident are automatically assigned to each user profile of a plurality of user profiles by the computer-based system applying a combinatorial optimization routine. An indication is displayed on a screen of a determined relative suitability of a first user profile for each role of the plurality of roles. The computer-based system is configured to receive a manual reassignment selection of a different role of the plurality of roles to be assigned to the first user profile and the combinatorial optimization routine is updated based on the manual reassignment selection.

  • Patent number: 11163864
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided in this disclosure for operating an electronic device that includes a user interface, a microphone, and an electronic processor. The microphone captures an audio stream and the electronic processor analyzes the audio stream to identify spoken words captured by the microphone. The electronic processor detects a violation of a user assistance restriction for the current functional operation of the electronic device based at least in part on a correlation between one or more of the identified spoken words captured by the microphone and a current functional operation of the electronic device involving a manual text entry through the user interface of the electronic device. The electronic processor adjusts one or more operations of the electronic device in response to detecting the violation of the user assistance restriction.

  • Patent number: 11165131
    Abstract: Implementations for heat structure for thermal mitigation are described. The described heat structures, for instance, provide a multi-layered structure that optimizes heat spreading and dissipation, as well as wireless performance of wireless devices. A heat structure, for instance, is installed internally in a wireless device adjacent various internal components to absorb heat generated by the components, and to dissipate the heat. According to various implementations, a heat structure is implemented as a thermally conductive layer surrounded by layers of electrically conductive material. Electrically conductive vias can be formed that traverse the thermally conductive layer and form an electrical connection between different electrically conductive layers to mitigate current flow in the thermally conductive layer.

  • Patent number: 11165906
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for providing prior-caller location and/or identity into a public-safety answering point is provided herein. During operation, a device such as a smart phone will store location and identity information for recently-received calls. If the device places a call to a PSAP within a predetermined amount of time from when the prior call was received at the device, a flag is sent to the PSAP operator notifying the PSAP operator of the prior call. The PSAP operator can then inquire about the prior call. The caller is then allowed to electronically transfer location and identity information related to the prior call to the PSAP operator if they wish to do so.

  • Patent number: 11163619
    Abstract: A state-aware microservice system for managing messages and providing a service. The state-aware microservice system includes a plurality of instances of the service, a message broker, a memory, and an electronic processor. The processor is configured to receive, via an instance of the plurality, a message for the service and determine whether a processing of the message is consistent with a current state of the system. When the processing of the message is consistent, the processor process the message via one of the plurality of instances. When the processing of the message is not consistent, the processor transmits the message to a first queue of the message broker, determines, from a timer of the message, a time-to-live of the message, and transfers the message to a second queue of one of the plurality of instances in response to the time-to-live expiring.

  • Publication number: 20210333961
    Abstract: In aspects of temporarily extending display timeout, a wireless device has a touchscreen display that displays content and is designed to turn off after a designated period of time for a screen lock timeout. The wireless device implements a display controller module that can detect an input on the touchscreen display, and determine the input as an override of the screen lock timeout to maintain the display of the content. The display controller module can then extend the screen lock timeout for a temporary time duration based on the override to maintain the display of the content. The display controller module can also revert back to the designated period of time for the screen lock timeout after expiration of the temporary time duration.
