  • Patent number: 11169518
    Abstract: Systems and methods for localizing and tracking mobile objects are provided. A method includes determining an initial location of a node in a multi-hop network based on multi-lateration from an unmanned aerial vehicle. The method also includes applying an adaptive aperture to address a non-uniform velocity of the node based on the turn and a velocity vector. A determination whether localization for the node can be implemented using first hop nodes in the multi-hop network is made. In response to a determination that localization cannot be implemented using the first hop nodes, inertial sensor measurements associated with the node are accessed and the inertial sensor measurements are integrated with the adaptive aperture to improve localization accuracy.

  • Patent number: 11102655
    Abstract: Methods and systems for secure device action initiation using a remote device are described herein. The techniques described herein enable, among other actions, users to send a play chirp request to a lost or misplaced device, such as to one or both buds of a truly wireless earbud set. In the case of truly wireless earbuds, a shared secret known by both of the buds can be used to securely initiate the action over an unencrypted link (e.g., an unencrypted BLE link). This can be achieved by using the shared secret to sign an authentication challenge to prove that a remote device that also has access to the shared secret is authorized to initiate the action, thereby providing a secure process. In some implementations, the shared secret is an Identity Resolving Key (IRK), which may be randomly generated by the buds.
