  • Patent number: 11665502
    Abstract: A system and method for using super geo-fences to improve efficiency of geo-fences is disclosed. A system determines a geo-fence density based on a number of geo-fences in an area around a client system. In response to determining the geo-fence density is greater than a predetermined density value, the system selects a number of geo-fences that is greater than a fixed number of geo-fences that the client system is capable of handling. The system groups the selected geo-fences into a first and second group of geo-fences and generates a super geo-fence that encompasses the first group. The system transmits the first and second group of geo-fences and the super geo-fence to an application stored at the client device. The application adds geo-fence data corresponding to the second group to the client system in response to detecting the client system crossing a boundary of the super geo-fence.

  • Patent number: 11323843
    Abstract: A system and method for using time to reach determinations to improve the usability of geo-fences is disclosed. A computer system accesses a current location of a client system and identifies one or more nearby geo-fences. The computer system then calculates the time to reach each of these geo-fences. If the calculated time to reach value for a particular geo-fence is within the notification range associated with that geo-fence, then the computer system generates a notification to display to a user.

  • Publication number: 20220054057
    Abstract: The invention disclosed herein includes electrode compositions formed from processes that sputter metal in a manner that produces pillar architectures. Embodiments of the invention can be used in analyte sensors having such electrode architectures as well as methods for making and using these sensor electrodes. A number of working embodiments of the invention are shown to be useful in amperometric glucose sensors worn by diabetic individuals. However, the metal pillar structures have wide ranging applicability and should increase surface area and decrease charge density for catalyst layers or electrodes used with sensing, power generation, recording, and stimulation, in vitro and/or in the body, or outside the body.
