  • Patent number: 9946900
    Abstract: A method and system for dividing tagged items into subsets. A region is split into subregions. For each subregion, a central tagged item having more adjacent tagged items in each subregion than any other tagged item in each subregion is determined, utilizing information that includes, for each tagged item in the region, a spatial location of each tagged item and a list of all other tagged items which are adjacent to each tagged item by being within a specified constant distance (Rlimit) from each tagged item. A virtual boundary is outlined around the central tagged item to enclose the central tagged item and a portion of the tagged items in each subregion which are adjacent to the central tagged item. The portion of the tagged items in each subregion consists of all, or less than all, tagged items which are adjacent to the central tagged item in each subregion.

  • Patent number: 9723583
    Abstract: An approach is provided for collaboratively synchronizing devices in an ad hoc network. Responsive to a transmission of a map by a first device to other device(s) listening to the first device, a second device determines the map, which allocates time slots to devices, indicates a conflict by which a same time slot is allocated to the second device and another device. The transmission is responsive to a determination that a Boolean value is true with a probability p if the first device is in an alive mode or a probability q if the first device is in a dormant mode, where p>q and q>0, and where p and q indicate respective likelihoods of performing the transmission. The second device resolves the conflict by allocating another time slot to the second device.

  • Patent number: 9629112
    Abstract: An approach is provided for collaboratively synchronizing devices in an ad hoc network. No device is acting as a master device or base station dictating time slot allocation to devices. A first device communicates with the other devices by a Media Access Control scheme based on time frames having time slots. Responsive to a determination that a current time slot allocated to a second device is occurring, a determination that a Boolean value selected according to a predetermined probability is true, and a transmission of a map of allocations of time slots to the devices, the first device determines the map indicates a conflict in which the same time slot is allocated to the first device and another device. The first device resolves the conflict by allocating another time slot to the first device, so that each time slot is allocated to no more than one corresponding device.
