  • Patent number: 11462238
    Abstract: The present system ensures that external noise sources do not taint sensor data recorded about a user's sleep parameters, to reduce false positives and false negatives, and provides a more accurate record of the user's sleep sounds, by cycling on and off noise sources. Additionally, the present system, in one embodiment, may be used to track changes in sound patterns from the user and from the environment. This may lead to early warning of health issues, as well as issues with the devices in the bedroom.
