  • Publication number: 20200204673
    Abstract: A user interface (UI) enables a user to wirelessly control one or more Internet of Things (IoT) devices in a home or office from a mobile device. An IoT protocol is configured to discover and identify IoT devices and generate a visual identifier for each IoT device. An Indoor Positioning System (IPS) protocol is configured to generate a location for each IoT device when the mobile device is pointed toward each IoT device. An orientation sensor protocol is configured to generate orientation sensor data of the mobile device as it points to each IoT device. An IoT device profile is generated and stored for each IoT device comprising one or more of IPS and orientation data. A filtering module collects real-time IPS and orientation data and compares same to the IoT device profile to generate a match. The mobile device displays the IoT device's visual identifier and control options.

  • Patent number: 10689317
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods of making fused ring compounds, such as indeno-fused naphthols, and fused ring indenopyran compounds, such as indeno-fused naphthopyrans, that each employ an unsaturated compound represented by the following Formula II. Referring to the unsaturated compound of Formula II: Ring-A can be selected from optionally substituted aryl (e.g., phenyl); m can be, for example, from 0 to 4; R1 for each m can be selected from optionally substituted hydrocarbyl (e.g., C1-C6 alkyl) optionally interrupted with at least one linking group (e.g., —O—); and R3 and R16 can each be independently selected from, for example, hydrogen or optionally substituted hydrocarbyl, such as C1-C8 alkyl. When Ring-A is a phenyl group, the unsaturated compound represented by Formula II can be referred to as an unsaturated indanone acid/ester compound, or an indenone acid/ester compound (depending on whether R16 is hydrogen, or an optionally substituted hydrocarbyl group).

  • Publication number: 20200177503
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for end-to-end identity-aware routing across multiple administrative domains. A first ingress edge device of a second overlay network can receive a first encapsulated packet from a first egress edge device of a first overlay network. The first ingress edge device can de-encapsulate the first encapsulated packet to obtain an original packet and a user or group identifier. The first ingress edge device can apply a user or group policy matching the user or group identifier to determine a next hop for the original packet. The first ingress edge device can encapsulate the original packet and the user or group identifier to generate a second encapsulated packet. The first ingress edge device can forward the second encapsulated packet to the next hop.

  • Publication number: 20200177235
    Abstract: Provided are methods and systems for terrestrial data transmission between aircrafts and external networks, such as airline and/or airport computer systems. When an aircraft is parked at the gate, the aircraft is connected to and powered by an electrical cable, such as a stinger cable. This cable may be also be used for wired data transmission between the aircraft and the gate using broadband over power line (BPL) technology. The gate and the aircraft are each equipped with a BPL module. The aircraft may include other communication modules, such as a Wi-Fi module, a cellular module, and/or an Ethernet module. These other modules can be also used for data transmission in addition to or instead of communication through the BPL module. A communication link manager may be used to select one or more communication modules depending on availability of communication links, costs, speed, and other parameters.

  • Publication number: 20200175301
    Abstract: Some dynamic pixel binning methods may involve identifying ROI optical sensor data corresponding to optical sensor pixels in a region of interest (ROI). Some such methods also may involve identifying non-ROI optical sensor data corresponding to optical sensor pixels outside the region of interest and determining a first binning factor for the non-ROI optical sensor data. The first binning factor may be based on a number of pixels in the region of interest and a target output data rate. Some such methods also may involve applying the first binning factor to the non-ROI optical sensor data and outputting optical sensor data, including the binned non-ROI optical sensor data, at the target output data rate.

  • Publication number: 20200177474
    Abstract: Examples of services described herein expose an application programming interface (API) which may return the run-time configuration information. In this manner, software external to the service (e.g., an orchestrator) may query the service to determine the run-time configuration information, then provide both the initial configuration information known to the external software and the run-time configuration information to an Internet-facing gateway. Examples described herein may accordingly avoid or reduce instances of an upgrade dependency. When the service is upgraded, the run-time configuration information may be obtained by calling the API without a need to also upgrade the software external to the service.

  • Patent number: 10671848
    Abstract: Provided are methods and systems for automated location and identification of multiple objects in an aircraft cabin. A method utilizes a wireless client, RFID reader, and camera, which together form a set. Each set is associated with a specific inspection zone in the cabin. The RFID reader determines the presence of a RFID tag in only one zone. Further, the camera captures an image of that zone. A data feedback is generated based on both the image and the RFID reader response. The data feedback is transmitted by the wireless client to a router and is analyzed to determine the presence of the object in the inspection zone and, if present, the identity of the object. The data feedback is associated with the location of the zone in the aircraft cabin, which is known or may be determined using a set of wireless routers positioned throughout the cabin.

  • Publication number: 20200166778
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanisms for determining a direction of gaze by a user of an ophthalmic device. In an embodiment, at least a portion of a magnetic field is generated by one of the ophthalmic device and an auxiliary reference device while the ophthalmic device is disposed in or on an eye of the user, and while the auxiliary reference device is adhered on the user's skin or under a surface of the skin. The ophthalmic device and the auxiliary reference device interact with each other via a magnetic field, and the interaction is detected with one or more sensors of the ophthalmic device. In another embodiment, the ophthalmic device stores predetermined reference information which corresponds various magnetic field signal characteristics each with a different respective direction of gaze. Based on the sensor information and the reference information, a controller of the ophthalmic device determines a direction in which the eye of the user is gazing.
