  • Patent number: 10104174
    Abstract: A method and system are disclosed herein for accepting multimodal inputs and deriving synchronized and processed information. A reusable multimodal application is provided on the mobile device. A user transmits a multimodal command to the multimodal platform via the mobile network. The one or more modes of communication that are inputted are transmitted to the multimodal platform(s) via the mobile network(s) and thereafter synchronized and processed at the multimodal platform. The synchronized and processed information is transmitted to the multimodal application. If required, the user verifies and appropriately modifies the synchronized and processed information. The verified and modified information are transferred from the multimodal application to the visual application.

  • Patent number: 10070253
    Abstract: A radio fingerprint device implements a radio fingerprint map construction and location tracking method. In this method, the radio fingerprint device receives, from a manager terminal device, radio environment information varying for a predetermined time at a specific referential position in a particular indoor area so as to create a radio fingerprint map. Then the radio fingerprint device extracts a periodic pattern from the received radio environment information, and stores, in the radio fingerprint map, the extracted periodic pattern as a radio fingerprint feature of the specific referential position.
