  • Patent number: 9723545
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for Wi-Fi peer-to-peer (P2P) communications. A seeker user equipment (UE) may identify a desired service to be provided via Wi-Fi P2P communication. The seeker UE may broadcast a probe that identifies the desired service. An advertiser UE may receive the probe from the seeker UE. The probe identifies a desired service for the seeker UE that is to be provided via Wi-Fi P2P communication. The advertiser UE may transmit a probe response to the seeker UE only when it is determined that the advertiser UE is capable of providing the identified desired service.

  • Publication number: 20170075430
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of navigating a GUI can include, responsive to a user input initiating a navigation mode, overlaying, atop of the GUI located within a first layer, a virtual keyboard within a second layer, wherein the virtual keyboard includes a plurality of virtual keys. The method can include, for each virtual key, associating the virtual key with a region of the first layer including an area of the GUI beneath the virtual key. The method can include mapping each virtual key with a physical key of a physical keyboard communicatively linked with a computer rendering the GUI and, responsive to a user input selecting a physical key of the physical keyboard, selecting a region corresponding to the selected physical key. A level of magnification for the selected region can be increased within the first layer while keeping the virtual keyboard sizing constant.

  • Publication number: 20150294403
    Abstract: The disclosed technology relates generally to methods and systems for sharing vehicles between fleets. Vehicle sharing services typically experience the most use during the weekend. Thus, many vehicles used by vehicle sharing services sit idle during the week. Meanwhile, vehicle rental companies experience the most demand during the week and their vehicles are underutilized during the week. The disclosed technology, in certain embodiments, provides systems and methods for sharing vehicles between a vehicle sharing entity and a vehicle renting entity. This allows the entities to lower fleet costs and obtain better fleet utilization by moving vehicles between fleets when one entity anticipates a spike in demand. For example, the ability for the vehicle sharing service to utilize a rental vehicle agency's excess weekend inventory will allow them to meet its strong weekend demand without the need for purchasing and maintaining additional vehicles.
