Abstract

Presented herein is a system and method that provide access to Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data from multiple objects, vehicles, and/or items dispersed in various locations. The sensor data is accessed via a mapping that maps the location or position of the various vehicles, objects, and/or items. When a particular vehicle, object, and/or item is selected on the mapping, the system and method provided herein allow access to data collected by the IoT sensors included thereon in an appropriate and/or realistic manner. This involves providing a communication channel between the IoT sensors and various feedback devices (e.g., lighting, displays, speakers, haptic feedback devices, etc.) that allow for a realistic presentation. Among other advantages, these techniques allow a group or fleet of items to be easily monitored and managed. Moreover, these techniques allow companies to maximize the utility of frequently underutilized data collected from IoT sensors.

ABSTRACT

    Presented herein is a system and method that provide access to Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data from multiple objects, vehicles, and/or items dispersed in various locations. The sensor data is accessed via a mapping that maps the location or position of the various vehicles, objects, and/or items. When a particular vehicle, object, and/or item is selected on the mapping, the system and method provided herein allow access to data collected by the IoT sensors included thereon in an appropriate and/or realistic manner. This involves providing a communication channel between the IoT sensors and various feedback devices (e.g., lighting, displays, speakers, haptic feedback devices, etc.) that allow for a realistic presentation. Among other advantages, these techniques allow a group or fleet of items to be easily monitored and managed. Moreover, these techniques allow companies to maximize the utility of frequently underutilized data collected from IoT sensors.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

    Many modern vehicles, objects, appliances, items, etc. are now equipped with cameras, communication devices, and other such sensors that provide connectivity to the Internet of Things (IoT). However, much of the data collected by IoT sensors is frequently ignored or under-utilized. A system that utilizes data from IoT sensors to re- create the environment of the IoT sensors may provide a unique user experience while simultaneously improving customer relations (e.g., by expanding a brand). The techniques provided herein may be particularly interesting and valuable when utilized together with a mapping of objects/vehicles/items because the techniques allow a user to

quickly view and/or experience conditions from the different vehicles, items, and/or objects represented in the mapping (e.g., aircraft in different locations on a flight tracking map).

    According to one implementation, the techniques provided herein connect a user's computing device with an objects/vehicles/item (e.g., a vehicle) equipped with a camera, determine the context of the camera, and adapt the feedback at the user's device and/or in the user's environment based on the context. This allows a user to receive or retrieve video-related information from a connected object anywhere in the world in the proper context, be it environmental, audio, or any haptic context. In order to provide the context, the system may leverage home appliances and/or systems. For example, a lighting system could be adjusted to fit a streamed context and/or a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system could be adjusted to mimic conditions (cold, heat) of the streamed context. Collectively, these techniques create an immersive experience.
