  • Publication number: 20190206543
    Abstract: Systems and methods for post procedure care and wellness management. A care network for a care recipient in providing post procedure care to the care recipient for a procedure performed on the care recipient is formed. A user specific care plan for the care recipient is generated, the user specific care plan including post procedure content and first post procedure care conditions associated with the post procedure content is generated for the care recipient. Whether the first post procedure care conditions are satisfied is determined. The post procedure content is sent to the care recipient through an internal communication channel. A first care data received notification comprising a generic notification lacking any personal health information of the care recipient is sent to the care recipient through an external communication channel. The care recipient is logged in to view the post procedure content through the internal communication channel.

  • Publication number: 20190204088
    Abstract: This disclosure covers methods, non-transitory computer readable media, and systems that generate route tiles reflecting both GPS locations and map-matched locations for regions along a route traveled by a client device associated with a transportation vehicle. For example, in some implementations, the disclosed systems use an artificial neural network to analyze the route tiles and determine route-accuracy metrics indicating GPS locations or map-matched locations for particular regions along the route. The disclosed systems can then use the route-accuracy metrics to facilitate transport of requestors by, for example, determining a distance of the route or a location of a client device associated with a transportation vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190096087
    Abstract: The disclosure provides methods and systems for modular virtual reality tracking of an object in a play area. An example system includes a first tracking module located at a first place and configured to capture a first image of a play area and obtain first coordinates of the object relative to the first place. The system may include at least one second tracking module located at a second place different from the first place and configured to capture a second image of the play area and obtain second coordinates of the object relative to the second place. The system may include a processing unit configured to receive the first coordinates from the first tracking unit and the second coordinates from the second tracking unit and continuously track the object while the object is within boundaries of at least one of the first image or the second image.

  • Publication number: 20190078905
    Abstract: To generate navigation directions for a driver of a vehicle, a route for guiding the driver to a destination is obtained, visual landmarks corresponding to prominent physical objects disposed along the route are retrieved, and real-time imagery is collected at the vehicle approximately from a vantage point of the driver during navigation along the route. Using (i) the retrieved visual landmarks and (ii) the imagery collected at the vehicle, a subset of the visual landmarks that are currently visible to the driver is selected. Navigation directions describing the route are provided the driver, the navigation directions referencing the selected subset of the visual landmarks and excluding the remaining visual landmarks.

  • Publication number: 20190051174
    Abstract: Embodiments provide techniques, including systems and methods, for determining projected locations for providers to better match providers in response to a transport request. Providers may be matched to a requestor based not only on a current location of the provider with respect to a request location, with a projected location of the provider that accounts for timing delays in processing transport requests, communication networks, etc. As such, projecting the projected location of the provider allows the dynamic transportation matching system to be matched more efficiently, reducing delay for the provider and requestor, and improving the efficiency of the system by preventing provider system resources from being taken from other service areas and decreasing provider inefficient rerouting upon matching.
