  • Publication number: 20170076000
    Abstract: Methods and systems for matching users include measuring a biometric state of a first user. The biometric state of the first user is matched to a set of biometric states of respective other users. The set of biometric states is limited in accordance with user preferences including how recently each biometric state was measured. A real-time connection is formed with a second user from the limited set of biometric states having a best match.

  • Patent number: 9469476
    Abstract: A method, system, and/or computer program product dynamically configures a delivery system for delivering products to smart mats. A delivery coordination server determines a location of multiple smart mats. Each of the smart mats includes a positioning system and a transmitter that transmits a message describing the real-time geophysical location of the smart mats. The delivery coordination server receives a message describing a location of a first delivery vehicle that is transporting a first package addressed for delivery to a first smart mat. The delivery coordination server determines that the first smart mat has moved to a location that is within a predetermined distance of a second smart mat, to which a second delivery vehicle is scheduled to deliver a second package. The delivery coordination server directs the first delivery vehicle to transfer the first package to the second delivery vehicle for delivery to the first smart mat.

  • Publication number: 20160291588
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to a system for implementing a restricted-operation region. The system includes an instruction development module configured to be utilized in the development of a set of instructions that implement an operation policy of the restricted-operation region. The set of instructions is configured to, when interpreted, implement the operation policy by controlling at least one function of a vehicle that attempts to operate within the restricted-operation region. The system further includes a first transmitter configured to transmit the set of instructions to the vehicle, wherein a processor of the vehicle is configured to interpret the set of instructions based at least in part on a determination that the vehicle is attempting to operate within the restricted-operation region.

  • Publication number: 20160260297
    Abstract: A system includes a wearer role identification device, a garment with a dynamically modifiable display, and a hardware controller for the dynamically modifiable display. The wearer role identification device identifies a dynamically changeable role of the wearer of the garment. The hardware controller adjusts the dynamically modifiable display based on real-time inputs received from the wearer role identification device.

  • Publication number: 20160224862
    Abstract: A method and system are provided. The method includes acquiring a first image by a first user. The method further includes performing, using a processor, a comparative analysis of the first image and at least one other image acquired within a threshold time by at least one other user. The method also includes establishing a real-time communication interface between the first user and the at least one other user in response to the comparative analysis.

  • Publication number: 20150310046
    Abstract: A method for generating a scalable visualization of a hierarchical data structure is provided. The method may include mapping at least one component within a plurality of components to the hierarchical data structure. The method may also include mapping at least one sub-component within a plurality of sub-components to the at least one mapped component. The method may further include mapping at least one variant within a plurality of variants to the hierarchical data structure as an accordion user interface widget. Additionally, the method may include mapping at least one variant component within a plurality of variant components to the at least one mapped variant as an accordion user interface widget. The method may also include mapping at least one variant sub-component within a plurality of variant sub-components to the at least one mapped variant component as an accordion user interface widget.
