  • Patent number: 10839158
    Abstract: A method includes detecting, by sensors, a current context associated with an electronic device. The method includes dynamically loading a neural network and selected features into a phrase-spotting audio front-end (AFE) processor. The neural network is configured, based on the current context, with at least one domain having an associated set(s) of trigger words. The method includes detecting, audio content that matches a trigger word from among the sets of trigger words associated with the at least one selected domain. The method includes in response to detecting audio content that matches the trigger word, outputting a wake-up signal to an application processor (AP). The AFE processor utilizes less computational resources than the AP. The method includes, in response to receiving the wake-up signal, the AP waking up and performing additional computation based on the matching trigger word. The method includes outputting results of the additional computation to an output device.

  • Patent number: 10839059
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a biometric sensor, such as a fingerprint sensor, that identifies biometric input received at the biometric sensor. One or more processors operable with the biometric sensor identify one or more companion devices operating within a wireless communication radius of the electronic device. Where multiple companion devices are within the wireless communication radius, a user can make a selection of one or more of them. One or more gesture sensors identify a predefined gesture input, such as a key turn simulation. A wireless communication circuit responsive to the one or more processors, delivers an actuation credential to at least one companion device to control the companion device.

  • Patent number: 10841412
    Abstract: For responding to a notification displayed in an Always on Display (“AoD”) mode with a voice command, a method displays notifications in at least one of a full power mode or an AoD mode, parses a notification to determine a notification type. The method also determines, while in the AoD mode, if the notification supports voice responses. If the notification supports voice response, the method receives a voice command from a user and authorizes the user based on the voice command, bypasses a screen lock, in response to the user being authorized, and executes the voice command.

  • 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: 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
