ABSTRACT

    Techniques are presented herein to join an online meeting with wearable glasses, using a meeting Universal Resource Locator (URL), contact information or meeting information.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

    Using a mobile device to join an online meeting is becoming more and more popular. The mobile device user needs to copy/click the meeting link to join the meeting, especially when the user needs to join the meeting on one device while the meeting link is on another device.

    With wearable computer devices becoming the wave of the future, eyeglass devices (wearable glasses) will become more popular. When an eyeglass device links into an online meeting, it can bring many benefits to a meeting system, and the joining- meeting process can be simplified with an eyeglass device when the meeting URL is on a different device.

    Presented herein is an automatic method to join an online meeting via wearable glasses (eyeglass device) when the wearable glasses scans key meeting information in another device or any visible content.

    Three ways are presented to recognize meeting information via wearable glasses. The first is to use the meeting status of a contact in collaboration client software. The second is to use the meeting URL, and the third is to obtain meeting information, such as meeting number and topic, shared meeting content and meeting audio.

    1.3. Wearable glasses detects what the user is focusing on in a region that contains "Vincyye Chan" as a contact item. The system captures the current visible content of the wearable glasses and uses imaging technology like optical character recognition (OCR) to scan the focusing region and obtain the corresponding text information.

    1.4. Thesystem detects that this collaboration client is WebEx Connect, the contact display name is "Vincyye Chan (vincchan)", the contact's status is "Sharing in a WebEx meeting" and the contact's image thumbnail.

    1.5. The collaboration system/server sends this detail information to the collaboration system. The collaboration system uses this information to find the meeting that Vincyye is joining (based on stored information about attendees associated with scheduled meetings), sends the meeting information for that meeting back to wearable glasses.

    The meeting system may send the meeting information to the collaboration client as well.
