  • Publication number: 20180306894
    Abstract: An apparatus assigns to a plurality of grid areas of a grid, the grid defined to virtually cover a positioning site, a probability that an object is located in the respective grid area. The probabilities are based at least on characteristics of wireless signals propagating in at least one direction between the object and devices distributed at the positioning site. The apparatus selects grid areas such that the total probability assigned to the selected grid areas at least reaches a predetermined probability. The apparatus determines a set of at least one virtual room, with the set containing selected grid areas, and provides an indication of the set of at least one virtual room as an estimated location of the object.

  • Patent number: 9509756
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and correspondingly configured computer program, in which a querying device inputs a user an identification of desired content and sends a query request for the desired content to surrounding memory devices. The query request is adapted to cause compatible receiving memory devices to perform a search based on the request. The memory devices are configured to listen to query requests and responsively perform searches based on the queries. Any memory device that finds content according to the query request responds to the query device which, after sending the query request, monitors for the compatible receiving memory devices for information that the queried content is found. Responsive to receiving the information from a given memory device, the querying device establishes a connection with the given memory device and obtains the content.

  • Patent number: 9304942
    Abstract: A system for controlling access to resources in an apparatus when the apparatus is not active. Emerging technologies may allow information to be accessed in an apparatus memory without the operating system of the apparatus facilitating the access. In such instances, a subsystem in the apparatus may become active upon reception of wireless signals, and may grant direct access to memory. An access control configuration for the subsystem may be implemented in order to control memory access even when other software systems are inactive. The subsystem access control configuration may be configured (e.g., by the user) when the apparatus is active, and may be established (e.g., installed or updated) upon subsystem activation.

  • Patent number: 9014238
    Abstract: A method and apparatus of synchronizing pulsed wireless communication between a first transceiver and a second transceiver. It includes the steps of transmitting a pulse signal from a first transceiver to a second transceiver; transmitting a reflection signal from the second transceiver to the first transceiver if the transmitted pulse signal is received at the second transceiver within an active reception period of the second transceiver; and detecting the reflection pulse to determine synchronization between the first transceiver and the second transceiver. Embodiments of the invention also relate to an apparatus for carrying out the method. In one embodiment, the reflection signal is generated by a super-regenerative oscillator.
