  • Publication number: 20210274033
    Abstract: A computing device determines that the computing device is within wireless proximity to a secondary wireless device. Based on the computing device being within wireless proximity to the secondary wireless device, the computing device determines at least one function of the secondary wireless device, and generates an aggregate user interface for display on a display screen of the computing device. The aggregate user interface identifies the secondary wireless device and indicates the at least one function of the secondary wireless device. The computing device receives, via the aggregate user interface, a user input selecting the secondary wireless device. Responsive to the user input, the computing device presents a second user interface including one or more selectable features for operating the secondary wireless device.

  • Publication number: 20210192589
    Abstract: A computing system can receive a plurality of signals from a plurality of independent sources along a supply chain. Each signal indicates a respective item being identified at a particular location along the supply chain and includes a timestamp. Based on the received signals, the system stores associated information for each item which includes the time and date of each signal for the item. The system can receive a supply chain assistance request with respect to a respective item from a computing device of a requesting user. In response, the system can display the associated information corresponding to the respective item on a user interface for the requesting user.

  • Patent number: 10733396
    Abstract: According to various embodiments, a mobile device continuously and/or automatically scans a user environment for tags containing non-human-readable data. The mobile device may continuously and/or automatically scan the environment for tags without being specifically directed at a particular tag. The mobile device may be adapted to scan for audio tags, radio frequency tags, and/or image tags. The mobile device may be configured to scan for and identify tags within the user environment that satisfy a user preference. The mobile device may perform an action in response to identifying a tag that satisfies a user preference. The mobile device may be configured to scan for a wide variety of tags, including tags in the form of quick response codes, steganographic content, audio watermarks, audio outside of a human audible range, radio frequency identification tags, long wavelength identification tags, near field communication tags, and/or a Memory Spot device.
