  • Patent number: 11348058
    Abstract: A delivery confirmation of a package at a delivery location may be determined based on a communication protocol between a user device and a package device associated with the package. A user can order an item and anticipate a delivery of the item to a delivery location associated with the user. A delivery device can determine that it has entered a geographic region associated with the delivery location. The delivery device and/or a user device associated with the delivery location can determine, using the communication protocol, that the delivery device is within a range of the user device. Then, the user device can receive a package device identifier associated with the package device, determine that the package device is within the range of the user device, and determine a delivery confirmation of the package.

  • Patent number: 11307286
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for estimating missing wireless attributes of a wireless fingerprint generated for a given location and confirming that the given location is a correct location. A collection of wireless fingerprint samples for the given location can be used to train an attribute prediction model that can estimate missing attributes in wireless fingerprints. For example, a wireless fingerprint may be incomplete as the fingerprint may fail to include attribute data for some AP devices associated with the given location. The attribute prediction model can be used to reconstruct wireless fingerprints to include the missing attributes. The reconstructed wireless fingerprints can then be used to train a location confirmation model which can be used for accurate location confirmation.
