  • Publication number: 20180189713
    Abstract: Embodiments provide techniques, including systems and methods, for improving the accuracy of location information for requestor and provider devices in an dynamic transportation matching system using local communications between computing devices. For example, embodiments allow a provider computing device to identify, pair, and/or communicate with a requestor computing device upon arrival near a request location for a ride matching request. The provider computing device may use signal strength measurements associated with signals received from the requestor computing device to identify a proximity to the requestor computing device and/or to triangulate an accurate location of the requestor computing device. Additionally, the provider computing device may use a combination of the location reported by the ride matching system and the signal strength of the paired connection to identify the location of the requestor computing device.

  • Publication number: 20180191863
    Abstract: Embodiments provide techniques, including systems and methods, for locating and navigating to the location of a requestor based on proximity between a requestor device and a provider device. For example, embodiments display proximity indicators to allow a provider to quickly, easily, and safely locate a requestor upon arrival near a request location. Further, in some embodiments, graphics associated with a proximity vector may be presented on a provider communication device to clearly display the navigation directions to the provider so that the provider may easily find their matched requestor without requiring additional communication between the provider and the requestor. Additionally, embodiments provide efficient navigation to riders by limiting display of proximity indicators for navigation until the provider is within a threshold distance to the request location to conserve system resources and communication between an on-demand matching system and the provider computing device.

  • Patent number: 9997305
    Abstract: An electronic device such as a cover for a portable device or other electronic equipment may have circuitry mounted in a housing. The housing may be formed from layers of material such as fabric and polymer layers. The circuitry of the electronic device may include components mounted on a printed circuit. The components may include movable components such as keys in a keyboard. A fabric layer may overlap the keys. Border regions of the fabric layer that surround each key may be characterized by a stiffness. To ensure that the keys or other movable components in the device exhibit satisfactory stiffness levels, the keys can be tested and selected border regions or other fabric layer portions may be laser ablated or otherwise processed to locally reduce fabric layer stiffness.

  • Patent number: 9946295
    Abstract: An accessory device for use with an electronic device is disclosed. The accessory device may include a cover configured to overlay an electronic device (or device) or fold to form a support structure for the electronic device. The cover may include an attachment feature that electrically couples with the device, and a keyboard foldable with respect to the cover. Further, the keyboard may include a retention feature designed to receive the attachment feature in a folded configuration of the cover. The accessory device may further include an electrically conductive fabric that folds with the cover. The accessory device may include an array of magnets throughout the attachment feature, the cover, and the keyboard. The magnets may be used to magnetically couple together 1) segments of the cover, 2) the cover and the keyboard assembly, 3) and/or the device with the cover.

  • Patent number: 9785185
    Abstract: Examples of computing devices including a processor, memory, and a display device housed within the same enclosure are described. In examples, the display device, which may include a cover glass, may be attached to the enclosure using a multilayer adhesive member, the multilayer adhesive including a first adhesive layer and a second adhesive layer disposed on opposite sides of a foam layer. The first and/or second adhesive layers may include two or more layers of a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA), which may be separated using one or more adhesive carrier films. In examples, the first and/or second adhesive layers may include a low tack (e.g. removable) PSA for adhering to surfaces of the display and enclosure and for facilitation removal and re-workability of the adhesive joint.

  • Patent number: 9658331
    Abstract: Ultrasound data is acquired by a synthetic aperture technique which uses multiple ultrasound transmissions from point sources. RF data is stored and processed. Doppler velocities for pixels in an insonified region are obtained by processing the stored data. One or more pan boxes may be provided. Doppler velocities may be determined by obtaining I and Q images for a plurality of frames and performing autocorrelation across the frames for some or all pixels in the frames.
