  • Patent number: 10459623
    Abstract: A system has a two-dimensional (2D) touch detection system operable to be activated and de-activated and an additional sensor operable in communication with the 2D touch detection system. The additional sensor is capable to determine whether a touch event has occurred or is about to occur and to activate the 2D touch detection system if a touch event has occurred or is about to occur.

  • Patent number: 10277203
    Abstract: A digital filter has an assigned filter function with assigned filter coefficients, an input receiving input samples, another input receiving confidence values, and an output. Each input sample value is associated to an input confidence value, wherein the filter output depends on the input samples, the input confidence values as well as the filter coefficients. The filter contains multiple accumulators, wherein an output sample is produced after a predetermined number of sample values wherein associated confidence values have been input to the filter.

  • Patent number: 10234990
    Abstract: A position tracking system may include a processor and a memory coupled to the processor. The memory may include instructions that, when loaded and executed by the processor, cause the processor to receive a plurality of measurements from a sensor and map a location of an object to a measurement using movement models. The mapping may be based upon a cost computed from movement models, the measurement, and the location.

  • Publication number: 20170256015
    Abstract: To improve pricing models for location based services, established geocoding/reverse geocoding services are used to enrich the locations defining the price item (start location, multiple end locations) and the pick-up/drop-off location with geocoding information like zip codes, coordinates and geographic boundaries. A multi-step matching algorithm then uses the geocoding values to determine 1) if there is a match between locations and 2) how good of a match there is. The match is measured by its “order.” For example, if the places are identical, they have a matching order 0, identical coordinates a matching order 1, matches based on zip codes have a matching order 2, matches based on geographic boundaries have a matching order 3, etc. Other sub-criteria, such as the number of zip codes or the size of an area, may also serve as tie-breaker. The order of the match may then be used to establish the correct predictive pricing model.
