  • Publication number: 20200269750
    Abstract: An indication device for a vehicle of a service provider associated with a transport service includes an output device and a communication interface for establishing a communication link with a provider device of the service provider. The communication interface can receive, via the communication link, a set of output configuration data associated with a request for the transport service to cause the output device to transition from outputting a default configuration to outputting the output configuration based on a determined state of the service provider or the transport service.

  • Patent number: 10688919
    Abstract: A computing system is configured to receive a request for a transport service from a user device of a requesting user. In response to receiving the request, the computing system identifies a service provider to fulfill the request and determines a state for the service provider. The computing system transmits, to a provider device of the service provider, configuration data indicating an output configuration for the request. The provider device is communicatively coupled to an indication device to cause the indication device to transition from displaying a default configuration to displaying the output configuration for the request based on the determined state of the service provider.

  • Publication number: 20190152382
    Abstract: A computing system is configured to receive a request for a transport service from a user device of a requesting user. In response to receiving the request, the computing system identifies a service provider to fulfill the request and determines a state for the service provider. The computing system transmits, to a provider device of the service provider, configuration data indicating an output configuration for the request. The provider device is communicatively coupled to an indication device to cause the indication device to transition from displaying a default configuration to displaying the output configuration for the request based on the determined state of the service provider.

  • Patent number: 10239444
    Abstract: A system and method for configuring an indication device is described. An on-demand service system arranges a service for a user to be provided by a service provider. The system determines whether the user has specified an output configuration for an indication device in an account of the user. In response to determining that the user has specified an output configuration for the indication device, the system identifies data corresponding to the output configuration and transmits the data to a mobile computing device of the service provider to enable the mobile computing device to control the indication device of the service provider based on the data.

  • Publication number: 20180259958
    Abstract: An on-board user interface device of an autonomous vehicle (AV) can detect a transition of the AV from a manual drive mode to an autonomous drive mode. In response to detecting the transition, the user interface device can receive live sensor data from a control system of the AV, where the live sensor data can indicate a surrounding environment of the AV. In autonomous drive mode, the user interface device can receive an input on a camera input mechanism to activate a camera. In response to the input on the camera input mechanism, the user interface device can capture an image of a passenger of the AV, and compile a plurality of frames of the live sensor data.
