  • Patent number: 10506962
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for performing an intraoperative assessment of brain function based on input that is obtained using a touch panel device, in response to a task, and in the presence of an intervention that is applied to a selected region of the brain. The intervention may be stimulation of the selected region of the brain, such as direct cortical stimulation. In some embodiments, a measure is determined based on the input received from the touch panel. The measure may be a performance measure, related to the performance of the task, and/or a functional measure, associated with an inferred function of the selected region of the brain. In some embodiments, an image of the brain that is registered to an intraoperative reference frame may be annotated or otherwise modified within the selected region based on the measure.

  • Patent number: 9733361
    Abstract: Techniques for managing power consumption of a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver of a mobile device are provided. These techniques include a method that includes deriving a GNSS search window for the GNSS receiver based on a position uncertainty (PUNC) and a time uncertainty (TUNC), selecting a GNSS search mode based on the GNSS search window and resources available for searching for signals from GNSS satellite vehicles (SVs), wherein an estimated power consumption associated with execution of a GNSS search associated with the GNSS search mode does not exceed a power consumption limit specified for the GNSS receiver conducting the GNSS search using the GNSS search mode, and estimating a position of the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 9677887
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to estimating an initial position and navigation state associated with a vehicle using odometry and/or other data obtained from the vehicle to support dead reckoning at start-up. In particular, a last known position and last known heading at a first odometer value associated with the vehicle may be stored and compared to a current odometer value after linking a mobile device with the vehicle. The last known position and last known heading may be used to estimate the initial position and navigation state associated with the vehicle based on a difference between the compared odometer values. For example, the estimated initial position and/or navigation state may substantially correspond to the last known position and last known heading if the difference between the odometer values indicates no change, or a non-zero difference may define a radius to limit an estimated error associated with the initial position estimate.
