  • Patent number: 11582419
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for enhancing communications mobility in an enterprise using a distributed communication controller. At least one distributed communication controller processes incoming and outgoing calls from a user device such as wearable and peripheral devices. The calls range in type and include voice calls, video calls, and both voice and video calls. Upon receiving an incoming call for the user comprising audio and video content, the distributed communication controller sends a call notification message to the user device that is in proximity to the distributed communication controller. After receiving a call acceptance input from the user device, the distributed communication controller sends the audio content of the call over a first channel to the user device. While the audio content is being sent over the first channel, the distributed communication controller sends the video content to an alternative device over a different second channel.

  • Patent number: 11546549
    Abstract: A multi-modal portal system provides an authorization prior to establishing a visual interface connection between a support user or caller and a client user or receiving party. Once the caller is authorized, the caller is permitted to drop-in such that a visual interface connection is established with the receiving party. The authorization can be based on a profile configuration that indicates whether the caller has the credentials required for the visual interface. The authorization can require that a notification be sent to a trusted user or primary contact or the caller can be associated with a profile configuration that allows for a pre-authorization without requiring the notification. Also, a schedule associated with the profile configuration can ensure a video notification of one or more scheduling parameters to the client user as well as the receipt of a video response from the client user.

  • Patent number: 11539865
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, and systems for operating an electronic device as a web camera are disclosed. The disclosed embodiments relate to features that enable a user to operate a mobile device as a webcam. A smartphone case can hold a smartphone and be attached to a display, such as a laptop monitor or a flatscreen monitor, with a camera of the smartphone pointed at the user. The smartphone case can include a magnet, which triggers a Hall effect sensor inside the laptop or flatscreen monitor. The sensor can be used to trigger software that enables the smartphone and laptop or computer to pair with each other, e.g., by a Bluetooth handshake. The laptop or computer can accept a Wi-Fi or physical signal, such as via USB, from the smartphone and treat that input as a video stream into the laptop or computer.

  • Patent number: 11513539
    Abstract: An autonomous mobile object includes an imaging unit, a positional information sender to acquire and send positional information to a server, and an operation controller to cause the autonomous mobile object to move autonomously based on an operation command. The server includes storage to receive and store the positional information from the autonomous mobile object, a commander to send the operation command to the autonomous mobile object, and a receiver to receive information relating to an emergency report including a target location. When the receiver receives the information relating to the emergency report, the commander sends an emergency operation command to the autonomous mobile object located in a specific area including the target location. The emergency operation command causes the autonomous mobile object to capture an image of a person or a vehicle moving away from the target location, and the autonomous mobile object sends the image to the server.

  • Patent number: 11516434
    Abstract: Visual content from different camera systems is concurrently routed to different applications during video call. A first application (e.g., a video call application) receives visual content from a first camera system while in a video call. The user can request to activate a second application, such as a photography application that allows the user to capture and display, store, or otherwise process visual content. A visual content routing system routes visual content captured by a second camera system (e.g., a rear facing camera system) to the second application concurrently with routing visual content captured by the first camera system (e.g., a front facing camera system) to the first application.

  • Patent number: 11509808
    Abstract: System and method for improving the shaving experience by providing improved visibility of the skin shaving area. A digital camera is integrated with the electric shaver for close image capturing of shaving area, and displaying it on a display unit. The display unit can be integral part of the electric shaver casing, or housed in a separated device which receives the image via a communication channel. The communication channel can be wireless (using radio, audio or light) or wired, such as dedicated cabling or using powerline communication. A light source is used to better illuminate the shaving area. Video compression and digital image processing techniques are used for providing for improved shaving results. The wired communication medium can simultaneously be used also for carrying power from the electric shaver assembly to the display unit, or from the display unit to the electric shaver.
