  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10831308
    Abstract: Systems and methods for enhanced touch gesture detection and resolution in mobile electronic communications devices entail scanning a touch sensor of the device at a first scan rate, detecting a touch of a finger and determining that the touch has remained present for at least a first threshold period. In response to this determination, the touch sensor is scanned at a second scan rate that is higher than the first scan rate, and it is determined using this second scan rate that a swipe gesture has occurred at the touch sensor within a second threshold period. In response to the swipe gesture, an action is executed at the device.

  • Patent number: 10833424
    Abstract: A communication device provides an elongate antenna element having a first and a second end separated by an aperture. A transceiver is electrically grounded to a ground plane and communicatively coupled via an antenna feed to the elongate antenna element. A first conductor is electrically attached to a first edge of the ground plane. An antenna switching controller selectively actuates the aperture switch to be in one of the open and closed positions based on whether the communication device is positioned on a body. The open position electrically isolates (a) the first end of the elongate antenna element; (b) the second end of the elongate antenna element; and (c) the first conductor. The closed position electrically couples: (a) the first end of the elongate antenna element; (b) the second end of the elongate antenna element; and (c) the first conductor.

  • Publication number: 20200351769
    Abstract: In aspects of wireless connectivity information for a mobile device, a mobile device includes a connectivity module that determines that the mobile device is to wirelessly connect to a network. The connectivity module of the mobile device queries for a host device to provide wireless connectivity information, such as via a direct device-to-device query between the mobile device and the host device. The mobile device receives a query response from the host device, and the connectivity module obtains wireless connectivity information from the query response. The connectivity module utilizes the connectivity information to perform a focused scan for a network, such as a network identified in the query response. In response to detecting the network based on the focused scan, the connectivity module interacts with the network to establish a wireless connection between the mobile device and the network.
