  • Patent number: 10681639
    Abstract: A source device includes various sensors, such as a GPS receiver. The source device provides operation context data to a server that indicates movement of the source device. The source device may also provide a movement context. The server also evaluates usage of data from the device by other applications or devices to determine a usage context. Based on the movement, operation, and usage contexts, the server selects a frequency at which data is collected for a sensor and a frequency at which the data is transmitted to the server. For example, where the device is not moving or is indoors, less location data is collected. Where no user is tracking the device, location data may be transmitted less frequently and may also be collected less frequently.

  • Patent number: 10659459
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed that leverage multi-factor authentication features of a service provider and intelligent call routing to increase security and efficiency at a customer call center. Pre-authentication of customer support requests reduces the potential for misappropriation of sensitive customer data during call handling. A contactless card uniquely associated with a client may provide a second factor of authentication to reduce the potential for malicious third-party impersonation of the client. Pre-authorized customer support calls are intelligently and efficiently routed in a manner that reduces the opportunity for malicious call interference and information theft.

  • Patent number: 10582453
    Abstract: Systems, methods, devices, computer readable media, and other various embodiments are described for location management processes in wearable electronic devices. Performance of such devices is improved with reduced time to first fix of location operations in conjunction with low-power operations. In one embodiment, low-power circuitry manages high-speed circuitry and location circuitry to provide location assistance data from the high-speed circuitry to the low-power circuitry automatically on initiation of location fix operations as the high-speed circuitry and location circuitry are booted from low-power states. In some embodiments, the high-speed circuitry is returned to a low-power state prior to completion of a location fix and after capture of content associated with initiation of the location fix. In some embodiments, high-speed circuitry is booted after completion of a location fix to update location data associated with content.

  • Patent number: 10554539
    Abstract: Various aspects of the disclosure relate to communicating control information for independent links. For example, control information for one link may be sent via at least one other link. In some aspects, the independent links may involve a first device (e.g., a user equipment) communicating via different independent links with different devices (e.g., transmit receive points (TRPs) or sets of TRPs). In some scenarios, one link may carry control information for multiple links. For example, one link may indicate the existence of or traffic on at least one other link. As another example, one link may transmit feedback for multiple links. In some scenarios, each link may be provisioned (e.g., as a primary link or a secondary link) to carry specific types of control information for one or more links.

  • Patent number: 10542536
    Abstract: A wireless device receives a first downlink control information (DCI) configured to be triggered in response to a second DCI. The first DCI indicates: a hybrid retransmission request (HARQ) identifier; and a new data identifier (NDI). One or more first transport blocks (TBs) are created in response to the first DCI. in response to not detecting the second DCI during a validation duration: the first DCI is invalidated, and transmission of the one or more first TBs is dropped. A third DCI indicating a same value of the HARQ identifier is received. Uplink signals are transmitted in response to the third DCI. The wireless device employs the NDI to determine an adaptive-retransmission of the one or more first TBs or a new transmission of one or more second TBs.
