  • Patent number: 11316937
    Abstract: An improved system and method for defining an event based upon an object location and a user-defined zone and managing the conveyance of object location event information among computing devices where object location events are defined in terms of a condition based upon a relationship between user-defined zone information and object location information. One or more location information sources are associated with an object to provide the object location information. One or more user-defined zones are defined on a map and one or more object location events are defined. The occurrence of an object location event produces object location event information that is conveyed to users based on user identification codes.

The AP transmits data to the one STA over a first NCCB band or a second NCCB band on the basis of the PPDU. The PPDU includes a first signal field and a second signal field. The first NCCB band is a 40 MHz or 60 MHz band generated by bonding a discontinuous 20 MHz band in an 80 MHz band. The second NCCB band is an 80 MHz, 100 MHz, 120 MHz, or 140 MHz band generated by bonding a discontinuous 20 MHz band in a 160 MHz band. The first signal field includes first information and second information. The first information is NCCB indication information on whether or not an NCCB can be performed. The second information is NCCB bandwidth information for a band to be used for transmitting the PPDU from the first NCCB band and the second NCCB band.
