  • Patent number: 11949745
    Abstract: Techniques are described for improving the efficiency of collaboration session synchronization between applications, particularly applications that consume heavy application data. In an embodiment, a computer-implemented method comprises employing, by an application server operatively coupled to a processor, a context management server to manage synchronization of usage context information between a first client device and one or more second client devices related to simultaneous usage of an application provided by the application server during a collaboration session established between the first client device and the one or more second client devices. The method further comprises managing, by the application server, synchronization and exchange of application data between the first client device and the one or more second client devices during the collaboration session without sharing the application data with the context management server.

  • Patent number: 11943328
    Abstract: A vehicular communication controller includes a microcontroller (MCU) located within a vehicle to generate, by a software component, a find service request to discover an offered service from one or more systems on a chip (SoC). The MCU may generate a service message packet that includes the find service request inserted into a payload of the find service message packet where the payload is bound to an automotive/embedded communication protocol. Using unicast or multicast, the find service message packet may be sent to one or more SoC receiving devices. The SoC receiving devices may deserialize the header and payload of the find service message packet to retrieve the find service request and generate a service directory message based on service metadata and publish a cloud event including a solicited response that is sent back to the software component.

  • Patent number: 11929876
    Abstract: Disclosed methods include sending, from a resource manager, network configuration information to each of one or more managed resources. The network configuration information may include an IP address for the resource manager, an IP address for each of the managed resources, and a predetermined timeout value. Network configurations for the resource manager and the one or more managed resources may then be set after which each managed resource may start a timer with the predetermined timeout value. If the resource manager detects successful completion of each of the network configuration operations, the resource manager may send a stop timer command to each of the managed resources. If a timeout occurs, the timeout will inform each of the managed resources that the change in network configuration was not entirely successful. The resource manager and each of the managed resources will then restore their network configurations to their previous configurations.

  • Patent number: 11863654
    Abstract: An electronic device monitors audible output for media content being presented in its vicinity. It detects a volume change event within the monitored audible output. It obtains identification of the media content. Based on the identification, the device obtains a list of expected volume change events within the media content. It determines whether the detected volume change event correlates with one of the expected volume change events. In accordance with a determination that there is no correlation, the device determines that the detected volume change event comprises a volume change event from a user of the device. It analyzes the detected volume change event to determine user interest in the presented media content. The determined level of interest is sent to a server system. The device receives from the server system one or more recommendations based on the determined level of interest, and presents to the user the recommendations.

  • Patent number: 11792298
    Abstract: Some underlying networks such as Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWAN) have limited communication bandwidth and strict requirements on maximum message size. It is recognized herein that these requirements may pose a challenge for data or resource exchange between two service layer (SL) entities, for example, because resource representations to be exchanged may have too large a size to be supported by the underlying networks. In some cases, traditional data compression algorithms can be used to alleviate this problem to some degree, but it is recognized herein that there are associated computation costs due to compression and decompression that may not be affordable for constrained IoT devices. Various embodiments described herein address this problem, among others, by defining a Resource Representation Common Part (RRCP) and storing it at the service layer. In some cases, the RRCP is not transmitted between SL entities, thereby reducing SL message sizes to cater to the constraints of underlying networks.
