  • Patent number: 11360192
    Abstract: This document describes techniques and systems for reducing a state based on sensor data from an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and radar. The techniques and systems use inertial sensor data from an IMU as well as radar data to reduce states of a user equipment, such as power, access, and information states. These states represent power used, an amount of access permitted, or an amount of information provided by the user equipment. The techniques manage the user equipment's states to correspond to a user's engagement with the user equipment, which can save power, reduce unwarranted access, and reduce an amount of information provided when the user is not engaged with the user equipment, thereby protecting the user's privacy.

  • Publication number: 20220180659
    Abstract: This document describes techniques and systems for authentication management through IMU and radar. The techniques and systems use inertial sensor data from an inertial measurement unit (IMU) and/or radar data to manage authentication for a computing device. By so doing, the techniques conserve power, improve accuracy, or reduce latency relative to many common techniques and systems for computing-device authentication.

  • Publication number: 20210258637
    Abstract: This application is directed to changing a TV operating mode based on a potential relationship among viewers of a connected TV. In some implementations, a method includes: determining viewer identities and identifying the potential relationship among the viewers or a subset of the viewers; in accordance with a determination that the potential relationship allows the viewers to share private information, placing or maintaining the connected TV in or into a first operating mode that is unrelated to media content being displayed and allows personal information to be displayed on the connected TV; and in accordance with a determination that the potential relationship does not allow the viewers to share private information, placing or maintaining the connected TV in or into a second operating mode that is unrelated to the media content and does not allow personal information to be displayed on the connected TV.

  • Patent number: 10992779
    Abstract: A computing device is described that receives, at a first particular time, first notification data. Responsive to receiving the first notification data, the computing device outputs, at a first intensity level, a first alert associated with the first notification data. The computing device receives, at a second particular time after the first particular time, second notification data. Responsive to the computing device receiving an indication of user interaction with the computing device between the first particular time and the second particular time, the computing device outputs, at the first intensity level, a second alert associated with the second notification data. Conversely, responsive to the computing device not receiving the indication of user interaction with the computing device, the computing device either outputs, at a second intensity level that is less than the first intensity level, the second alert, or refrains from outputting the second alert entirely.

  • Publication number: 20210026454
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are described for robust radar-based gesture-recognition. A radar system (104) detects radar-based gestures on behalf of application subscribers. A state machine (2000) transitions between multiple states based on inertial sensor data. A no-gating state (2002) enables the radar system (104) to output radar-based gestures to application subscribers. The state machine (2000) also includes a soft-gating state (2004) that prevents the radar system (104) from outputting the radar-based gestures to the application subscribers. A hard-gating state (2006) prevents the radar system (104) from detecting radar-based gestures altogether. The techniques and systems enable the radar system (104) to determine when not to perform gesture-recognition, enabling user equipment (102) to automatically reconfigure the radar system (104) to meet user demand.

  • Publication number: 20210029542
    Abstract: This document describes techniques and systems for maintaining an authenticated state based radar data from a radar system, and in some cases, on sensor data from an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The techniques and systems use radar data to determine, after an indication that the user has potentially disengaged with the user equipment, to determine whether or not the user is passively engaged with the user equipment. Responsive to determining that the user is passively engaged, the techniques and systems maintain the authenticated state. By maintaining this authenticated state, the techniques manage the user equipment's state to correspond to a user's engagement with the user equipment, which can save power and improve a user's experience.

  • Publication number: 20200410072
    Abstract: This document describes techniques and systems that enable radar-based authentication status feedback. A radar field is used to enable an electronic device to account for the user's distal physical cues to determine and maintain an awareness of the user's location and movements around the device. This awareness allows the device to anticipate some of the user's intended interactions and provide functionality in a timely and seamless manner, such as preparing an authentication system to authenticate the user before the user touches or speaks to the device. These features also allow the device to provide visual feedback that can help the user understand that the device is aware of the user's location and movements. In some cases, the feedback is provided using visual elements presented on a display.
