  • Patent number: 10347290
    Abstract: Various embodiments for creating media clips are disclosed. In one example, a method is performed by a server for managing the creation and distribution of media clips, where the server associates a content capture device with an event, the content capture device for recording at least a portion of the event, receives a tag notification from a content tagging device via a network interface, generates a media clip creation command to the content capture device via the network interface, sends the media clip creation command to the content capture device, and receives a media clip created by the content capture device in response to receiving the media clip creation command.

  • Patent number: 9969480
    Abstract: Various embodiments for measuring and interpreting a vessel operator's intent and control inputs are disclosed. Various stations on a vessel comprise user control devices to receive vessel control commands from a vessel operator in conjunction with associated transducer information capturing physical conditions or attributes of the operator at, or proximate to, one of the user control devices. A processor determines whether the vessel control command was deliberate, based on the physical condition or the attribute captured by the transducer. Upon determination of a valid user control input, the processor optionally performs transformation of the user vessel control command based on an operator identity and vessel environmental factors, and then sends a corresponding control command to one or more vessel physical control devices, such as a rudder or an engine.

  • Patent number: 9749185
    Abstract: Certain embodiments of the present disclosure relate to methods for increasing a capacity in a peer-to-peer (P2P) wireless network. The methods include generating a connectivity metric (CM) value indicative of a number of other wireless nodes of the P2P wireless network to which the wireless node is connected, transmitting the CM value, and then transmitting full connectivity information maintained by the wireless node at a frequency determined based on the CM value. The disclosed methods therefore allow well-connected nodes of the P2P wireless network to be exploited in a manner that increases the overall connectivity of all the nodes in the network.

  • Patent number: 9747613
    Abstract: Dynamic mobile coupons (DMCs) having a variable commercial value and/or other variable coupon characteristic are provided herein. By way of example, a DMC can be distributed to a mobile device based on criteria established by a sponsor of the DMC. A redemption value of the DMC can be variable and dynamically established based at least in part on data associated with a recipient mobile device. Upon redemption of the DMC at a retail entity, the value is fixed and applied to a transaction. Details of the transaction are provided to a remote clearinghouse that performs mediation and indemnification functions to finalize the transaction. As described, the subject disclosure provides a DMC that facilitates a rich and flexible mechanism to generate purchasing incentive for consumers in a mobile environment.

  • Patent number: 9604542
    Abstract: An I/O device for a vehicle includes at least one touch-sensitive I/O display unit DT, at least one output display unit DI and a control unit CU connecting the I/O display unit DT and the output display unit DI with an information exchange unit IEU. The touch-sensitive I/O display unit DT is located in a readily reachable position for a driver and the output display unit DI is located in a readily discernible position for a driver, and the control unit CU communicates output data DD-I/O related to an interactive I/O communication to the I/O display unit DT, receives touchscreen input data TI from the I/O display unit DT and communicates output data DD-O to the output display unit DI in relation with the input data TI. An I/O method using the above mentioned I/O device for a vehicle is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20170076311
    Abstract: Providing for management of a dynamic mobile coupon (DMC) at a mobile device is described herein. Particularly, dynamic characteristics associated with the DMC, such as a redeemable value, can be utilized to browse, sort, search, recall, or redeem the DMC utilizing a user interface of the mobile device. In other aspects, a DMC management application can interact with server components to backup and store DMC data, synchronize dynamic information (e.g., a dynamic redeemable value), access or manage a user profile, interface with other mobile devices to accomplish sharing, trading, exchanging, selling the DMC, and so on. Accordingly, provided is an efficient and personable way to manage mobile coupons in a mobile operating environment and provide increased value and utility for a user of such coupons.

  • Patent number: 9583146
    Abstract: Various embodiments for creating media clips are disclosed. In one embodiment, media clips are created by a server in response to receiving a primary media recording of at least a portion of an event from a first content capture device, and activity identification information from a content tagging device, the activity identification information comprising a selection time when an activity indicator was selected by a user in response to an activity that occurred during the event. A processor executes machine-executable instructions stored in memory that causes the server to determine whether the first primary media recording is associated with the event, and create a first media clip from the first primary media recording when the first primary media recording is determined to be associated with the event.

  • Patent number: 9230602
    Abstract: Various embodiments for creating media clips are disclosed. Media clips are created by content capture and tagging devices as events are recorded by the content capture and tagging devices. Users select one or more predefined activity indictors displayed on their content capture and tagging devices as activities occur during events, or as recordings are viewed after events have concluded. Media clips are then created based on the recordings and the activity type associated with each activity indicator. The media clips are then provided to a server, where they are stored in association with activity identification information, such as an activity type based on the selected activity indicator. The media clips may then be searched and accessed by providing key words to the server.

  • Patent number: 9208822
    Abstract: Various embodiments for creating media clips are disclosed. Media clips are created by a server in response to receiving primary media recordings from one or more content capture devices or content capture and tagging devices, and one or more instances of activity identification information from content tagging devices. The server creates media clips from by copying portions of the primary media recordings in accordance with the activity identification information, such as a time that a user selected an activity indicator displayed on a respective content tagging device. The media clips are then stored in association with at least users who provided the activity identification information to the server.
