Abstract

The use of EKG data in pairing wearable accessories with a users mobile terminal would allow for fast and easy association while removing additional steps for the user. Any wearable accessory the user wears or holds would pair wirelessly with the mobile terminal being used by the user and the user would quickly be able to start working. The EKG data could be gathered from the user during their initial orientation and associated with the user's profile. That EKG data can then be paired with a wearable accesory by associating the wearable accessory's sensor data with the accessory, and pairing the sensor data with the mobile terminal of the user.

Seamless Association of Wearable Accessories using Heat Rate Sensors

The act of associating wearable accessories like ring scanners, headsets, or glasses, with a mobile terminal can be challenging. Some current solutions being offered include manual pairing (scan and pair) or requiring user action (tap NFC pairing). These processes are cumbersome for the wearable technology users during their daily activities. Every time a user starts using a wearable accessory they have go through the process of picking their right accessory and pairing the accessory to his mobile terminal. The user also faces the challenge of picking the right device that was previously paired with their terminal. This invention offers an easy and seamless method of associating these accessories with mobile terminals using inputs such as heart rate monitors and temperature sensors.

The use of heart rate sensors on mobile terminals and accessories that transmit EKG and body temperature data read from heart rate sensors and temperature sensors, respectively, to the mobile terminal paired with the user. Mobile terminals match the data with its sensors and pair with accessories accordingly. Packets containing EKG and temperature data may be sent via a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) interface. EKG data is known to be to be unique person to person. This unique data can be used to pair to an individual user.
