  • Patent number: 10895925
    Abstract: A computing device has a digitizer control module configured to monitor signals received by receive electrodes and to detect in the monitored signals a signal from a second touch display of a second computing device in physical proximity to the computing device. The digitizer control module is configured to determine one or more locations on the first touch display at which the signals from the second touch display are received. A processor in the computing device is configured to compute a relative position of the second touch display with respect to the first touch display on the basis of the determined locations, and to use the computed relative position to treat the first touch display and the second touch display as a combined touch display.

  • Publication number: 20200356886
    Abstract: A system for image classification is disclosed that includes a central system configured to provide high reliability image data processing and recognition and a plurality of endpoint systems, each configured to provide image data processing and recognition with a lower reliability than the central system and to generate probability data. A decision switch disposed at each of the plurality of endpoint systems is configured to receive the probability data and to determine whether to deny access, grant access or generate a referral message to the central system, wherein the referral message includes at least a set of image data generated at the endpoint system.

  • Patent number: 10719148
    Abstract: The disclosure herein describes coupling a stylus and a computing device. Based on a tip of a stylus being brought proximate to a display of a computing device configured to communicate in accordance with a wireless protocol, the computing device is configured to receive a stylus wireless protocol identifier and transmit a wireless protocol identifier of the computing device and one or more security keys to the stylus via a communication channel in response, whereby the stylus and computing device are coupled. Based on receiving a signal associated with user input from the coupled stylus using the wireless protocol, the computing device performs an operation based on the signal. The described “loose coupling” enables streamlined use of styluses with compatible computing devices without requiring full pairing.

  • Publication number: 20200081560
    Abstract: The disclosure herein describes changing a mode of operation of a computing device using signals from a pen device. The pen device obtains gesture input data from at least one sensor of the pen device and the obtained gesture input data is compared to at least one gesture pattern. Based on the gesture input data matching the at least one gesture pattern, the pen device transitions to an active state. The pen device detects, via an electrostatic communication channel, an uplink signal from the computing device and sends a signal to change a mode of operation of the computing device by at least one of a network interface or a communication channel, other than the electrostatic communication channel. Changing modes of operation of a computing device provides a flexible, stream-lined way to enhance the user experience of using a computing device with a pen device (e.g., performing an initial pairing process).

  • Patent number: 10542103
    Abstract: The disclosure is related to context driven interactions between a host computing device having a digitized surface and a client device. During a touch interaction, the host computing device detects a touch on the digitized surface and receives a client identifier from the client device. In an implementation, the host computing device may respond to a touch interaction in a context driven manner. The host computing device may determine an event based on a context of the touch interaction. The context may include, for example, the location (e.g., coordinates) of the touch, the client identifier received during the touch interaction, and an active application on the host computing device during the touch interaction. Based on the determined event, the host computing device may request specific information regarding the client device. The specific information may be selected by the host computing device based on the determined event.

  • Patent number: 10534449
    Abstract: The structure and devices described herein provide an improved digital eraser for a stylus. A stylus may have an eraser end that transmits an erase signal from an eraser antenna. A cover houses the eraser antenna and can be configured with varying geometry to selectively position the eraser antenna closer to, or further away from, a digitizer screen of a computing device when the cover is in contact with the digitizer screen. The computing device can detect the signal strength of the erase signal and/or the contact area between the cover and the digitizer screen and vary one or more of the width, area, or opacity of the erase function. The computing device can further, based upon the strength of the signal and/or the contact area between the cover and the digitizer screen, determine the tilt and/or the rotation of the stylus.

  • Publication number: 20180329492
    Abstract: A touch-sensing display system comprises a contactable display surface in addition to touch-screen, pupil-estimation, user-pointer, and display logic. The touch-screen logic is configured to sense normal coordinates directly behind a point of the user contact on the contactable display surface. The pupil-estimation logic is configured to estimate the vantage vector pointing from the vantage point of the user and through the point of user contact. The user-pointer logic is configured to compute adjusted coordinates of the contactable display surface, the adjusted coordinates being shifted from the normal coordinates based on the estimated vantage vector. The display logic is configured to render a visible feature on the contactable display surface at the adjusted coordinates.
