  • Publication number: 20200366671
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments include identity verification and management services in which users authenticate their identities during an enrollment process, and may access and modify their identity information via a secure portal. The enrollment process includes collecting various identifying data and biometric data of a user. A live interview portion during the enrollment process is used to check the liveness and verify the collected identifying data and biometric data. Once the user is enrolled, the user's identity can be verified for multiple entities using the same enrolled identity, and the user can manage the specific data used to verify their identity with different entities. This provides users with the ability to use their authenticated/verified identity across various industries, markets, locations, and the like, while keeping their identifying data private. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.

  • Patent number: 10807528
    Abstract: A system for enhancing driver situation awareness and environment perception around a transportation vehicle. The system incorporates a plurality of object detecting sensors. The sensors are arranged for monitoring at least one critical zone around the vehicle. A plurality of addressable light-emitting diodes are operatively associated with the object detecting sensors. The addressable light-emitting diodes are located on the vehicle for visual display to the driver. When a given sensor detects an object in the critical zone, a detection signal is transmitted to a LED controller. Upon receiving the detection signal, the LED controller transmits a control signal to selectively activate only those addressable light-emitting diodes which are associated with the given sensor, such that the activated light-emitting diodes visually communicate to the driver a location of the detected object in the critical zone.

  • Publication number: 20200245044
    Abstract: Methods and systems of correcting operation of multiple modules are described. The methods include generating a first dual-tone signal in a first module and transmitting the first dual-tone signal to a second module. A second dual-tone signal is generated in the second module and transmitted to the first module. The first module determines a first phase of the received second dual-tone signal and the second module determines a second phase of the received first dual-tone signal. Operation of one or both of the first and second modules is corrected based on the determined first phase and the determined second phase.
