  • Patent number: 11778540
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods including a secure sensor filtering capability within an BLE hub device capable of determining its geographic position and also capable of communicating directly with a cloud services application. The hub device periodically performs BLE scanning for advertisements from devices in proximity to the hub device but only collects and processes advertisement data from end nodes that match the filter requirements configured within the hub device while ignoring advertisements from any end nodes not matching the filter requirements configured within the hub device. In addition, digital leash and custody capabilities are provided with respect to the hub device such that improvements in connection with resource utilization (e.g. power, bandwidth, processor usage) may be achieved.

  • Patent number: 11763375
    Abstract: Aspects described herein may allow for auto-locating a user in a parking lot and/or automatically directing a user to recommended inventory. For example, a customer may capture an image of a vehicle, or a marker associated with a vehicle, in a parking lot. The image may be processed locally or at a server. A vehicle may be identified based on analysis of the image. Further, information regarding the user may be processed to determine another vehicle appropriate for a recommendation. For example, a prompt on a mobile device may suggest a popular model similar to the vehicle being viewed. The system may then provide directions (e.g., augmented reality directions) to the user to direct the user to the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11711673
    Abstract: A wireless communication network serves wireless user devices over a radio channel that is allocated into subchannels for wireless network slices. A wireless access node schedules resource blocks from the subchannels to the wireless user devices based on their wireless network slices. The wireless access node detects a subchannel has available resource blocks and other subchannels need the available resource blocks. The wireless access node schedules the available resource blocks to the wireless user devices that need the available resource blocks and that use a higher priority wireless network slice. The wireless access node wirelessly exchanges user data with the wireless user devices over the scheduled resource blocks and exchanges the user data with the wireless network slices. The wireless network slices exchanging at least some of the user data with external systems.

  • Patent number: 11696366
    Abstract: A wireless User Equipment (UE) controls a wireless data service that is received from a wireless communication network over a radio band. In the wireless UE, a radio wirelessly exchanges user data with the communication network over the radio band to receive the wireless data service. The radio wirelessly receives a communication performance metric from the wireless communication network over the radio band. The communication performance metric characterizes the wireless data service received by the wireless UE over the radio band. In the wireless UE, user circuitry translates the communication performance metric into a service instruction for the wireless UE over the radio band. The radio wirelessly transfers the service instruction for the wireless UE to the wireless communication network over the radio band. The wireless communication network modifies the wireless data service for the wireless UE responsive to the service instruction.

  • Patent number: 11615887
    Abstract: The invention generally relates to a method and system for utilizing an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based technology for tracking human mobility patterns and contact points, via a Software Development Kit (SDK) integrated into client device applications. The SDK performs contact tracing by recording past and current signal data/measurements of Wi-Fi access points encountered by a client device and stores these measurements in a local memory of the client device. The SDK further analyses the recorded past and current signal data/measurements of the Wi-Fi access points using an AI module to derive mobility patterns of user of the client device. The AI module of the SDK then identifies other client devices that the client device may have encountered based on analyzing the mobility patterns of the user of the client device and the recorded past and current signal data/measurements and via performing Wi-Fi network sniffing.
