  • Publication number: 20180324896
    Abstract: A device, non-transitory computer-readable medium, and method for disengaging a corrective action via a wearable unit are disclosed. In one example, a processor may receive a movement model for a type of motion of a user, collect sensor data associated with the type of motion of the user from a plurality of sensors of a wearable unit, and determine that the sensor data is not in accordance with the movement model. The processor may further provide a corrective action via the wearable unit in accordance with the movement model when it is determined that the sensor data is not in accordance with the movement model, detect a triggering condition for disengaging the corrective action, and disengage the corrective action when the triggering condition is detected.

  • Publication number: 20180314757
    Abstract: Directional sound location is used to determine security events of a security system. A sound sensor reports a vector direction to a sound source of an acoustic signal. If the vector direction is historically observed at similar times, then perhaps the sound source is not considered a security event. However, if the vector direction is unknown or unfamiliar, the security system may infer the security event and notify emergency services.

  • Publication number: 20180277136
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, at a device from a first media device, audio data and image information. The audio information indicates vibrations of an object caused by sound in a vicinity of the object. The method includes generating, at the device, an audio signal based on the audio data. The method includes transmitting the audio signal from the device to a second media device conditioned upon a quality of the audio signal satisfying a threshold. Conditioned upon the quality of the audio signal failing to satisfy the threshold, the method further includes generating audio information based on the vibrations, generating audio content associated with the first media device from the audio information, and transmitting the audio content from the device to the second media device.

  • Patent number: 9997169
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, at a device from a first media device, audio data and image information indicating vibrations of an object. The vibrations are caused by sound in vicinity of the object. The method includes generating audio information based on the image information. The method includes filtering the audio data based on the audio information to generate audio content associated with the first media device. The method further includes transmitting the audio content from the device to a second media device.

  • Publication number: 20170130978
    Abstract: Directional environmental control provides nearly immediate comfort. A location associated with a mobile device determines an air terminal that best serves the location. Conditioned air may thus be streamed from the air terminal to the location associated with the mobile device. The conditioned air may be heated or cooled according to a profile associated with a user of the mobile device.
