  • Patent number: 9778372
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for position determination and other operations. In one embodiment of the present invention, a mobile station uses wireless signals from a plurality of wireless networks (e.g., with different air interfaces and/or operated by different service providers) for position determination (e.g., for data communication, for obtaining time and/or frequency information, for range measurement, for sector or altitude estimation). In one embodiment of the present invention, mobile stations are used to harvest statistical data about wireless access points (e.g., the locations of mobile stations that have received signals from the wireless access points, such as from cellular base stations, wireless local area network access points, repeaters for positioning signals or other wireless communication transmitters) and to derive location information (e.g., position and coverage area of the wireless access points) for the wireless networks from the collected statistical data.

  • Patent number: 9746945
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, systems, and computer-readable media for integrating sensation functionalities into a mobile device using a haptic sleeve are presented. According to one or more aspects of the disclosure, a computing device may receive, via a haptic sleeve, sensation input captured by one or more haptic components of the haptic sleeve. Subsequently, the computing device may store haptic data corresponding to the received sensation input. For example, in storing such haptic data, the computing device may store information describing one or more electrical signals received via the one or more haptic components of the haptic sleeve during a period of time corresponding to a particular event, and this stored information may reflect various characteristics of the sensation input received by the computing device in connection with the particular event, such as the magnitude(s), position(s), duration, and/or type(s) of sensation(s) captured during the period of time.

  • Patent number: 9626238
    Abstract: A sensor interface is provided with a number of sensor inputs and a number of client inputs. The client inputs are configured to receive a number of data requests from a number of clients. The number of data requests include at least one data request that specifies a particular type of data to be returned, without identifying a particular physical sensor to be used in acquiring the particular type of data. A processor is configured to i) determine what sensor data can be used to satisfy the number of data requests, ii) configure ones of the sensor inputs to receive sensor data from a number of physical sensors, and iii) if possible, satisfy the number of data requests using the received sensor data. Methods and apparatus pertaining to such a sensor interface are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20170041688
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatus for synchronizing a controller and sensors in a system. A timestamp is provided in a host controller of an interface event on an interface coupled with host controller through detecting a message from a sensor on the interface that identifies the issuance of the interface event caused by the sensor at a first time. In response, the controller issues first and second events on the interface at respective second and third times, while concurrently counting cycles of a clock in the controller after each issuance. The controller also receives a first and second sensor counts representing the internal sensor clock times noted for the first and second events. The controller may then accurately calculate the timestamp of the interface event corresponding to the first time based on both internal controller counts and the sensor counts without needing a timestamp from the sensor directly.

  • Publication number: 20170041897
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatus for transmitting sensor timing correction messages with a host controller. The methods and apparatus determine synchronization messages that are transmitted to a sensor coupled with the host controller via an interface, where the messages indicate a beginning of a synchronization period for synchronizing timing of the host controller and the sensor. Additionally, a delay time message is determined that indicates a time delay between the beginning of the synchronization period and an actual transmission time of the synchronization message. The synchronization message is transmitted with the delay time message in an information message to the sensor, where information message is configured to allow the sensor to correct timing of a sensor timer by accounting for the delay time.

  • Publication number: 20160370845
    Abstract: Disclosed aspects relate to methods and apparatus for correcting a first sensor clock of a first sensor. The disclosed methods and apparatus effectuate receiving first and seconds signals in a sensor from a processor at known different times related to the timing of the processor clock. Based on the measured time interval between the times of the first and second signals as determined by the sensor, a clock correction factor may be determined in the sensor for correcting the timing of the sensor clock to be synchronized with the processor clock.
