  • Publication number: 20190020676
    Abstract: A method includes generating a user profile for an authorized user of a mobile device based on behavior patterns associated with the authorized user. The method also includes detecting subsequent user behavior of a particular user during an attempt by the particular user to access the mobile device. The method also includes comparing the subsequent user behavior to the behavior patterns of the user profile to determine whether the particular user is authorized or unauthorized. In response to determining that the particular user is an unauthorized user, the method includes detecting activity by the unauthorized user and performing a countermeasure of a plurality of countermeasures in response to detecting the activity. Each countermeasure of the plurality of countermeasures has a different security level and corresponds to a degree of the activity.

  • Publication number: 20180373969
    Abstract: A method for high density radio frequency identifier (RFID) scanning is provided. The method includes receiving a plurality of response signals from a plurality of RFID components. Where each of the plurality of response signals includes a part number and a serial number associated with the RFID component. The method also includes receiving, from a location device, a location of the scanning device. For each of the plurality of RFID components, the method includes determining a component location, the serial number, and the part number based on a corresponding response signal, comparing the component location to an expected location of the RFID component, determining a level of correlation between the serial number associated with the corresponding response signal and a stored serial number associated with the part number, and calculating a confidence score based on the corresponding comparison and the level of correlation.

  • Patent number: 9933470
    Abstract: An environmental visualization system is provided for visualization of an energy spectrum. The environmental visualization system may include a front-end system configured to receive input from sensors configured to measure emissions within an environment of a user, and provide a corresponding sensed input that includes a at least one energy frequency of the emissions and that indicates a spatial-temporal distribution of the emissions within the environment. The system may also include an energy spectrum system configured to generate from the sensed input, a multidimensional layout that depicts the at least one energy frequency and spatial-temporal distribution of the emissions from which a significance of the emissions is identifiable, in which the front-end system may be configured to output the multidimensional layout for display by a display device.

  • Patent number: 9904356
    Abstract: A system is provided that includes sensors(s) configured to provide sensed input including measurements of motion and/or orientation of a user during performance of a task to work a complex-system component. The system includes a front-end system configured to process the sensed input including the measurements to identify a known pattern that indicates a significance of the sensed input from which to identify operations of an electronic resource. The front-end system is configured to form and communicate an input to cause the electronic resource to perform the operations and produce an output. The operations include determination of an action of the user during performance of the task, or calculation of a process variable related to performance of the task, from the measurements. And the front-end system is configured to receive the output from the electronic resource, and communicate the output to a display device, audio output device or haptic sensor.

  • Publication number: 20170063640
    Abstract: An environmental visualization system is provided for visualization of a computing architecture. The environmental visualization system may include a front-end system configured to receive signals communicated and carrying messages between source and destination network nodes separate and distinct from the system in a communication network composed of a plurality of network nodes within an environment of a user, interpret the messages to identify the source and destination network nodes, and generate data input for the signals that indicates the source and destination network nodes. The environmental visualization system may also include a computing architecture system configured to generate from the data input, a multidimensional layout that depicts the communication network, including the source and destination network nodes and signals communicated therebetween, in which the front-end system may be configured to output the multidimensional layout for display by a display device.
