  • Patent number: 10678494
    Abstract: Systems and methods for using distributed Universal Serial Bus (USB) host drivers are disclosed. In one aspect, USB packet processing that was historically done on an application processor is moved to a distributed USB driver running in parallel on a low-power processor such as a digital signal processor (DSP). While a DSP is particularly contemplated, other processors may also be used. Further, a communication path is provided from the low-power processor to USB hardware that bypasses the application processor. Bypassing the application processor in this fashion allows the application processor to remain in a sleep mode for longer periods of time instead of processing digital data received from the low-power processor or the USB hardware. Further, by bypassing the application processor, latency is reduced, which improves the user experience.

  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20200160860
    Abstract: Techniques for dynamic contact ingestion are described. A system may interpret a voice command received from a first device based on contact data or other information associated with a second device connected to the first device. For example, when a data connection is made between the first device and the second device, the first device may receive the contact data and send the contact data to a remote system. The remote system may temporarily associate the contact data with the first device, enabling the remote system to interpret a voice command received from the first device using the contact data. The remote system may use the contact data to perform disambiguation, enabling the remote system to initiate outbound calls, announce inbound calls, and/or the like. When the second device is disconnected from the first device, the remote system may remove the association between the contact data and the first device.
