  • Publication number: 20200349787
    Abstract: Disclosed are an apparatus and a method for remotely managing access to an area. An access management platform, which can be an electronic lock that is installed on, e.g., a door of a house, can enable a user to establish a virtual presence at the door. In one example, a delivery person activates a doorbell button/icon of the access management platform, which sends a message to a smartphone of the owner of the platform. The owner, who is at work, uses his smartphone to initiate a video stream using a camera of the platform, and a two way audio stream. The owner sees and initiates a discussion with the delivery person. The owner uses his smartphone to unlock the door, and asks the delivery person to open the door and deliver the package inside. The owner uses his smartphone to capture his signature to acknowledge the delivery.

  • Publication number: 20200349786
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, apparatus, and methods for remotely managing access to a space and performing trust verification to authorize or deny people access to the space. An access management platform comprising an electronic lock installed on a door can enable a user to establish a virtual presence at the door. For example, a delivery person can activate a doorbell button or icon of the lock and the lock can send a message to a smartphone of a user of the platform. The user can remotely use the smartphone to initiate a video stream using a camera of the platform and a two way audio stream. The user can use the smartphone to unlock the door and ask the delivery person to deliver the package inside. The platform can also determine and control the status of the space and communicate with other devices regarding the status of the space.

  • Patent number: 10755509
    Abstract: Disclosed are an apparatus and method that enables an owner/administrator to manage access to a shared resource based on identity that is established by use of biometric data. For example, access to a shared physical resource can be restricted via use of a biometric locking device. An access management platform can be used to authorize a new user to access the shared resource. Once authorized, the new user can unlock the biometric locking device based on, for example, fingerprint data of his finger. The access management platform can similarly be used to manage access to a virtual shared resource, such as an online account. A virtual locking device, such as a computer that acts as an intermediary between the user and the online account, can be used to restrict access to the online account. The access management platform can enable the user to access the online account based on biometric data.

  • Patent number: 10099049
    Abstract: Apparatus, systems and methods employing contact lens as power source for powering a retinal implant are provided. In an aspect, a contact lens includes a substrate that forms at least part of a body of the contact lens and a circuit disposed on or within the substrate comprising. The circuit includes a power harvesting component configured to receive energy in a first form from an external power source and convert the energy from the first form to a second form and an energy transfer component configured to transmit the energy in the second form to device remote from the contact lens when the contact lens is worn over an eye.

  • Patent number: 10057983
    Abstract: A method may involve: forming a first bio-compatible layer; forming an etch stop over a portion of the first bio-compatible layer; forming a conductive pattern over the etch stop and the first bio-compatible layer, wherein the conductive pattern defines an antenna, sensor electrodes, electrical contacts, and one or more electrical interconnects; mounting an electronic component to the electrical contacts; forming a second bio-compatible layer over the electronic component, the antenna, the sensor electrodes, the electrical contacts, the one or more electrical interconnects, and the etch stop; and etching, using an etchant, a portion of the second bio-compatible layer to form an opening in the second bio-compatible layer and thereby expose the sensor electrodes, wherein the etch stop inhibits etching of the portion of the first bio-compatible layer by the etchant.
