  • Patent number: 10768714
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electronic device, which includes a display component, in which at least one controllable element is arranged to be visualized in its entirety, the control of which element is arranged to be based on determining a change (M) relating to the attitude or position of the device and camera means arranged to form image frames (IMAGE1, IMAGE2), and in which, in order to control the functions of the device, such as, for example, to control the element, the change is arranged to be determined, using optical data-flow algorithms, from the image frames formed by the camera means, which image frames are arranged to be compared to each other in a set manner, and on the basis of which comparison the said change is arranged to be determined. The image frames are arranged to be segmented in a selected manner, from which at least one movement vector (SR, SL, SUp, SDown) determining the said change is arranged to be determined from at least some of the segments (SEGMENT1, SEGMENT2).

  • Publication number: 20200204988
    Abstract: A method is provided that is performed by a mobile device at least partially under control of a positioning program. The method includes establishing or initiating establishing a secure communication path to a remote device for receiving one or more signature parameter data sets and receiving said signature parameter data set(s) via said secure communication path. The method also includes estimating a position of said mobile device at least partially based on radio signal parameter(s) obtained by said mobile device. The position data are obtained as a result of said estimating. The method further includes determining a digital signature of said position data at least partially based on at least one of said signature parameter data set(s). The method also includes providing said position data and said signature data to one or more application programs. A corresponding device and computer-readable storage medium are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20190075117
    Abstract: The present invention relates to processing location information access requests. An identifier of a sender of a received location information access request is determined, and the identifier is compared to identifiers in a contact storage. Location access control information and/or supplementary contact information associated with an entry having a matching identifier in the contact storage is then retrieved.

  • Patent number: 9872144
    Abstract: An apparatus receives a message including results of measurements on signals of a WLAN access point. The apparatus determines as a first condition whether the message comprises no indication of a position obtained in a non-cell based positioning and/or no information enabling a non-cell based positioning. The apparatus determines as a second condition whether the message comprises in addition results of measurements on signals of at least one cell of a cellular communications network. If the conditions are met, the apparatus determines a position based on the results of measurements on signals of the at least one cell of a cellular communications network and causes storage of location information that is based on the determined position in a memory for the WLAN access point, in case no location information has previously been stored in the memory for the WLAN access point.

  • Publication number: 20150111605
    Abstract: A location-based triggering system and method allow location-based triggers to be created and associated with POI, landmark, and/or location-based information categories comprised of a plurality of POIs, landmarks, and/or location-based information, POI, landmark, and/or location-based information sub-categories, as well as POI, landmark, and location-based information searches. A trigger is created, where the trigger comprises trigger criteria. At least one POI, landmark, and/or location-based information database containing a plurality of POIs, landmarks, and/or location-based information data is monitored for a match between the trigger criteria and at least one POI, landmark, and/or location-based information category. If a match exists, the trigger is activated, thereby executing a related action or event. Furthermore, additional search criteria can be combined with the trigger criteria to enhance the LBT process.
