  • Patent number: 11244165
    Abstract: The discussion relates to context-aware environments. One example can include inwardly-facing cameras positioned around a periphery of an environment that defines a volume. The example can also include sensors positioned relative to the volume and configured to communicate with a user device in the volume. The example can also include an ambient perception component configured to track user locations in the volume and to detect user gestures relative to objects in the volume, and responsive to receiving a query from the user's device, to supplement the query with information derived from the objects.

  • Patent number: 11154784
    Abstract: Systems and method for providing a single sign in a gaming console that associates online activity that is out-of-game/cross game, and/or online activity that is in-game, and/or activity that is offline and in-game with that account. While online, a service tracks activity of gamers and provides usage statistics in a profile. While offline, the game console tracks the player's activity via a mechanism to collect detailed information about a specific player's in-game statistics and accomplishments. The offline activity is cached and uploaded when the console connects to the online service. Players can accumulate achievements offline that are credited towards online activities.

  • Publication number: 20210042689
    Abstract: The discussion relates to inventory control. In one example, a set of ID sensors can be employed in an inventory control environment and subsets of the ID sensors can collectively sense tagged items in shared space. Data from the subset of ID sensors can indicate when a user has taken possession of an individual tagged item in the shared space.

  • Patent number: 10769812
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to tracking the location of a target object. In one example, a computer vision system detects a configuration of environment objects. A location model that has been trained for the environment configuration is selected. A signal associated with the target object is received and interpreted using the selected location model to determine the location of the target object.
