Abstract

Methods and systems for a controlling device features based on vehicle state and device location are provided. Specifically, the device may be any type of electrical device capable of transmitting and/or receiving a signal (such as a phone, tablet, computer, music player, and/or other entertainment device). In some instances, the device may be associated with one or more vehicles. Although the device may be configured to run one or more applications, the functionality of the one or more applications may be controlled by a system associated with the vehicle. In some cases, this control may depend on the device application type, device location (either inside or outside of a vehicle), law, operator state, and/or vehicle state.

  • BACKGROUND
  • Whether using private, commercial, or public transport, the movement of people and/or cargo has become a major industry. In today's interconnected world, daily travel is essential to engaging in commerce. Commuting to and from work can account for a large portion of a traveler's day. As a result, vehicle manufacturers have begun to focus on making this commute, and other journeys, more enjoyable.
  • Currently, vehicle manufacturers attempt to entice travelers to use a specific conveyance based on any number of features. Most of these features focus on vehicle safety, or efficiency. From the addition of safety-restraints, air-bags, and warning systems to more efficient engines, motors, and designs, the vehicle industry has worked to appease the supposed needs of the traveler. Recently, however, vehicle manufactures have shifted their focus to user and passenger comfort as a primary concern. Making an individual more comfortable while traveling instills confidence and pleasure in using a given vehicle, increasing an individual's preference for a given manufacturer and/or vehicle type.
  • One way to instill comfort in a vehicle is to create an environment within the vehicle similar to that of an individual's home or place of comfort. Integrating features in a vehicle that are associated with comfort found in an individual's home can ease a traveler's transition from home to vehicle. Several manufacturers have added comfort features in vehicles such as the following: leather seats, adaptive and/or personal climate control systems, music and media players, ergonomic controls, and in some cases Internet connectivity. However, because these manufacturers have added features to a conveyance, they have built comfort around a vehicle and failed to build a vehicle around comfort.
  • SUMMARY
  • There is a need for a vehicle ecosystem that can integrate both physical and mental comforts while seamlessly operating with current electronic devices to result in an intuitive and immersive user experience. These and other needs are addressed by the various aspects, embodiments, and/or configurations of the present disclosure. Also, while the disclosure is presented in terms of exemplary embodiments, it should be appreciated that individual aspects of the disclosure can be separately claimed.
  • A method of controlling access to one or more features of a communication device associated with a vehicle is described. In some embodiments, the method comprises: establishing a connection between the communication device and a feature control module, wherein the feature control module is configured to receive input from at least one of a vehicle sensor and a non-vehicle sensor; determining a location of the communication device; and controlling, via the feature control module and based at least partially on the location of the communication device, user access to one or more features of the communication device.
  • The present disclosure can provide a number of advantages depending on the particular aspect, embodiment, and/or configuration. Currently, drivers and other vehicle operators can operate their vehicles while texting, talking, surfing the Internet, streaming video, and generally using their mobile phones and/or other connected devices. Using these devices while operating a vehicle may not only be considered unsafe, but may also contradict local, state, federal, and other laws. Moreover, the use of devices, especially communication devices, while driving causes greater distraction and is a leading cause of accidents among teenage drivers.
  • Among other things, the present disclosure is directed to an intelligent system that is capable of recognizing a user and device and determining to allow or deny the user access to device features. In particular, the system may recognize one or more characteristics associated with a user and/or device and limit access to device features at least partially based on the one or more characteristics. These characteristics may include but are not limited to location of the user and/or device, user profile settings, user preferences, registration status of the device, device settings, programmed conditions, and the like. For example, a user may be operating a device in the passenger seat of an automobile. Moreover, the user may have established a connection between the device and the vehicle (e.g., via Bluetooth, direct electrical connection, wireless, radio frequency (RF), infrared (IR), etc.). In this example, the vehicle feature control system may utilize one or more of the vehicle/device sensors to determine the location of the device user. These sensors may include cameras, weight sensors, IR detectors, temperature sensors, GPS, triangulation and/or position sensors, and combinations thereof. Many vehicles, especially cars, utilize sensors of this type to activate and/or deactivate airbag and/or safety restraint system components. Upon detecting that the user and/or device in this case is located in a passenger seat, a feature control module may determine that feature access should not be controlled. On the other hand, if the user was seated in a vehicle operation seat (e.g., driver's seat) the feature control module may determine to limit access to one or more features of the device.
  • It is anticipated that the feature control module may refer to other factors when determining to allow or deny a user access to a device's features. Among these other factors are jurisdictional and/or federal laws, contractual rules/obligations, programmed conditions, vehicle state, emergency contingencies, and combinations thereof. Contractual rules/obligations may include but are not limited to contract limitations associated with employment contracts, insurance contracts, general agreements, governmental contracts, and the like. These rules and/or laws may be used in determining feature control of a device. For instance, a vehicle may be detected to be “in motion” by the feature control module and various vehicle/device sensors. Moreover, the feature control module may be configured to communicate to a database to determine laws governing the use of communication devices in the current geographical location of the vehicle. For the sake of example, a local law may prohibit the use of communication devices by a driver of a vehicle while that vehicle is in motion. Based on the vehicle state (i.e., in motion), the location of the user (i.e., driver's seat), and the local law (i.e., prohibiting use of devices by drivers of a moving vehicle) the feature control module may determine to deny access to device features. In some embodiments, the feature control module may communicate with the device to deactivate the features of the device. This deactivation may be coupled with a presented warning in the form of a visual and/or audible alert on the device and/or vehicle dash display. Additionally, it is anticipated that the feature control module may reactivate these deactivated features once the vehicle is in a state of rest and/or parked.
  • In some embodiments, the feature control module may itself receive from a satellite positioning system receiver in the vehicle or from a satellite positioning system receiver in the communication device satellite location information alone or in conjunction with vehicle-related state, configuration, and/or operation information (speed, parking sensors, etc.) to determine the current vehicle state, configuration, and/or operation. Exemplary on-board vehicle sensors that may be accessed by the feature control module include a wheel state sensor to sense one or more of vehicle speed, acceleration, deceleration, wheel rotation, wheel speed (e.g., wheel revolutions-per-minute), wheel slip, and the like, a power source energy output sensor to sense a power output of an on-board power source (e.g., an engine or energy storage device) by measuring one or more of current engine speed (e.g., revolutions-per-minute), energy input and/or output (e.g., voltage, current, fuel consumption, and torque), and the like, a switch state sensor to determine a current activation or deactivation state of a power source activation/deactivation switch, a transmission setting sensor to determine a current setting of the vehicle transmission (e.g., gear selection or setting), a gear controller sensor to determine a current setting of a gear controller, a power controller sensor to determine a current setting of a power controller (e.g., throttle), a brake sensor to determine a current state (braking or non-braking) of a vehicle braking system, a seating system sensor to determine a seat setting and current weight of seated occupant, if any, in a selected seat of the vehicle seating system, a safety system state sensors to determine a current state of a vehicular safety system (e.g., air bag setting (deployed or undeployed) and/or seat belt setting (engaged or not engaged)), a light setting sensor (e.g., current headlight, emergency light, brake light, parking light, fog light, interior or passenger compartment light, and/or tail light state (on or off)), a brake control (e.g., pedal) setting sensor, an accelerator pedal setting sensor, a clutch pedal setting sensor, an emergency brake pedal setting sensor, a door setting (e.g., open, closed, locked or unlocked) sensor, a window setting (open or closed) sensor, and other sensors known to those of skill in the vehicle art. When, for example, a vehicle is in motion, the feature control module can disallow/deactivate use of texting, video streaming, and other applications. Once the vehicle is determined to be in a “parked” condition (e.g., in “Park”), or otherwise motionless, the applications may be allowed and activated. As previously stated, these features may be controlled in accordance with local/state/federal laws as well as administrative agency laws, insurance contract, governmental contracts, general agreements, and/or employment contracts.
  • In another embodiment, communication modes, such as texting, tweeting, email, and the like may be enabled or disabled based on vehicle location. Vehicle location may be mapped against applicable laws of a governmental entity, such as a city, municipality, county, province, state, country, and the like. Alternatively, capabilities of the device may be enabled or disabled based on contract requirements, employer rules or policies, etc.
  • In yet another embodiment, a feature control module may be programmed to control a specific device, or group of devices, based on settings associated with a user. During a registration process between a device and a vehicle, via the feature control module, the registering party may be prompted to input specific information via a control panel, the device, and/or a dash display interface. The registration of devices may be password-protected and even associated with a master key or pass. In some embodiments, the registration process will grant the feature control module permission to control one or more features of the device. In other embodiments, the feature control module may be configured to control one or more communication features of the device regardless of registration permission. This unauthorized control of device communication features may be achieved by affecting the transmission of signals sent to and/or from the device.
  • To better illustrate the concept of controlling device features based on settings, the example of a teenage driver is provided. In this example, a teenage driver may own a particular communication device. This device may have a unique media access control (MAC) address or other unique hardware/software identifier. In one embodiment, the device may be registered with the feature control module by an authorized user (e.g., a parent, guardian, or governmental entity). During the registration process, the authorized user may configure the settings associated with the device and teenage driver to be especially strict. In other words, the authorized user may determine to disable all communication functions of the device while the vehicle is in motion. On the other hand, the authorized user may determine to allow telephonic connections while in motion but disable other features such as texting, emailing, and surfing the Internet (e.g., disable the browser capability). Additionally or alternatively, an authorized user may determine that communication devices inside a vehicle (associated with any person, and even in any area), shall be controlled by the feature control module. In this instance, the feature control module may prevent the exchange of communication signals to and from one or more device inside a vehicle.
  • In some embodiments, the feature control module may determine to control one or more features based on vehicle state and/or condition. In one embodiment, access to features of a device may be overridden. This overriding control may be beneficial in the case of an emergency. For instance, the feature control module may determine that a vehicle and/or one or more users are in a state of emergency. If a vehicle has been involved in a collision or accident, one or more sensors associated with the vehicle are configured to report the incident. In accordance with the present disclosure, the feature control module may receive input from the multiple sensors to determine appropriate device feature control. For example, a car may be involved in a roll-over accident. Although the wheels of the car may still be moving, and the vehicle is not in “park,” the presence of the accident may be reported by the sensors and therefore functionality of device features may be returned to the one or more devices associated with the vehicle. Alternatively, a user in a vehicle may have suffered a seizure, or illness, that causes the user to shake uncontrollably. This movement and/or condition may be detected by the device associated with that user and as such signal an emergency event associated with the user. The feature control module may receive this input and return device feature functionality for a period of time.
  • The phrases “at least one”, “one or more”, and “and/or” are open-ended expressions that are both conjunctive and disjunctive in operation. For example, each of the expressions “at least one of A, B and C”, “at least one of A, B, or C”, “one or more of A, B, and C”, “one or more of A, B, or C” and “A, B, and/or C” means A alone, B alone, C alone, A and B together, A and C together, B and C together, or A, B and C together.

Further, this device, or these devices, can receive user input in unique ways. As described herein, the device(s) may be electrical, mechanical, electro-mechanical, software-based, and/or combinations thereof.
  • For purposes of explanation, numerous details are set forth in order to provide a thorough understanding of the present invention. It should be appreciated, however, that the present invention may be practiced in a variety of ways beyond the specific details set forth herein.
  • Referring to FIG. 1, a block diagram is shown depicting a feature control system 100 in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In general the feature control system 100 comprises a feature control module 104 in communication with one or more of a communication device 108, sensor 136, 140, user 112, memory 106, 120, 124, server 122, and communication network 116. In some embodiments, the feature control module 104 is configured to control one or more device 108 features based on rules and/or input received. It is anticipated that the input received may be from one or more device 108, sensor 136, 140, and or user 112. Moreover, rules may be stored in one or more memory 106, 120, 124 of the feature control system 100. For example, the feature control module 104 may detect the presence of a device 108 by a physical or wireless connection. Upon detecting the device 108, the feature control module 104 may determine to control features of the device 108 based on the stored rules. These stored rules may direct a course of action based on input detected at the sensors 136, 140 and/or device 108. If the sensors 136, 140 report that the device 108 and user 112 are in the driver's seat of the vehicle, the rules may determine to limit access to device 100 features.
  • In an exemplary embodiment, a vehicle comprises the feature control module 104 in its software and/or hardware implementation. However, the feature control module 104 may be located remotely from a vehicle and substantially perform all of the functions and operations as described herein. For example, the feature control module 104 may be integrated into the device 108. Additionally or alternatively, the feature control module 104 and/or its functionality could be split between the device 108 and an in-vehicle representation. For instance, the split embodiment may further control the device 108 by limiting the device's 108 ability to perform specific functions while coupled and/or decoupled from the feature control module 104 of the vehicle. Although it can be appreciated that the location of the feature control module 104 may vary, for the purposes of this disclosure, the feature control module 104 will be described as residing locally within a vehicle.
  • In some embodiments, the feature control module 104 may be configured to receive one or more inputs. These one or more inputs may be used to determine whether to control features associated with a device such as device 108. In general, a device in wireless and/or physical communication with the feature control module 104 may be controlled. The feature control module 104 may affect the control of a device's features via control of one or more of the device display, communications, state, applications, and/or combinations thereof. In one embodiment, a feature control module 104 may receive permission to control a device 108. This permission may be granted upon a registration of the device 108 with the feature control module 104. Furthermore, this type of registration may be achieved via the installation and/or operation of an application on the device 108. In an exemplary embodiment, the application may at least facilitate communications between the device 108 and the feature control module 104, control the state of the device 108 at the direction of the feature control module 104, and/or control a user's 112 access to one or more features of the device 108. However, it is an aspect of the present disclosure that the feature control module 104 may affect the communications ability of any device 108 within a specific area of the vehicle based on signal attenuation and/or interference techniques.

It can be appreciated that the communication network 116 need not be limited to any one network type, and instead may be comprised of a number of different networks and/or network types. In some embodiments, the communication network 116 may comprise a controller area network, or CANbus, associated with vehicle, automotive, and/or automation communications. Moreover, it is anticipated that communications between various components of the feature control system 100 can be carried by one or more busses.
  • The server 122 may comprise a general purpose programmable processor or controller for executing application programming or instructions. In accordance with at least some embodiments, the server 122 may include multiple processor cores, and/or implement multiple virtual processors. In accordance with still other embodiments, the server 122 may include multiple physical processors. As a particular example, the server may comprise a specially configured application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) or other integrated circuit, a digital signal processor, a controller, a hardwired electronic or logic circuit, a programmable logic device or gate array, a special purpose computer, or the like. The server 122 generally functions to run programming code or instructions implementing various functions of the feature control system 100 and/or feature control module 104.
  • The vehicle sensors 132 may include but are not limited to one or more of a throttle position sensor, accelerator pedal angle sensor, speed sensor, speedometer, vehicle speed sensor, wind speed, radar, brake position sensor, brake wear sensor, steering/torque sensor, transmission sensor, oxygen sensor, headlight sensor, ambient lighting sensor, vision system sensor, ranging sensor, parking sensor, heating venting and air conditioning (HVAC) sensor, turbine speed sensor, input speed sensor, water sensor, air-fuel ratio meter, blind spot monitor, crankshaft position sensor, engine temperature sensor, cabin temperature sensor, hall effect sensor, manifold absolute pressure sensor, mass flow sensor, microphone, camera sensor, crash detection sensor, safety restraint sensors, weight sensor, radio frequency (RF) sensor, infrared sensor (IR), vehicle control system sensors, location and/or position sensors, Wi-Fi sensor, cellular data sensor, Bluetooth sensor, and the like. In some embodiments, the one or more vehicle sensors 132 may be located in different areas or zones of a vehicle. For instance a first sensor 136 a may be located in a proximal portion of a vehicle, while a second sensor 136 b may be located in a distal portion of the vehicle. As can be appreciated the number of vehicle sensors 132 may vary according to vehicle type and/or vehicle control system complexity. In an exemplary embodiment, the vehicle sensors 132 may be configured to communicate across a communication network 116 and/or directly with the feature control module 104. One example of a communication network in a typical automotive application may include utilizing the CANbus and associated protocol.
  • In some embodiments, the feature control module 104 may employ the use of one or more non-vehicle sensors 140. The non-vehicle sensors 140 may include one or more type of vehicle sensor 132 described herein. However, the non-vehicle sensors 140 may be separated from the vehicle. Additionally or alternatively, the non-vehicle sensors 140 may comprise sensors associated with one or more other devices. For instance, the non-vehicle sensors 140 may be associated with at least one device 108. These sensors may include but are not limited to one or more of an accelerometer/gyroscope, GPS, compass, camera, microphone, audio input/output, temperature sensor, health monitoring sensors, and the like.
  • FIG. 2 is a block diagram depicting areas and zones associated with a vehicle 204 in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In general, a vehicle 204 may comprise one or more areas 208, 216, 220. The areas 208, 216, 220 may in fact be a volume of space and/or a point location (e.g., a docking location, holder, power port, signal port, and so on). These one or more areas 208, 216, 220 may be located inside (208) or outside (216, 220) of a vehicle 204. It is an aspect of the present disclosure that the one or more areas 208, 216, 220 of a vehicle 204 may occupy different, overlapping, or substantially similar physical positions in and/or about the vehicle 204. For instance, the inside of a vehicle 204 may comprise a first area 208 a and a second area 208 b. As depicted, the first area 208 a may occupy a different physical location of the vehicle 204 than the second area 208 b. In some embodiments, the areas 208 may be subdivided into one or more zones 212. The one or more zones 212 may completely occupy an area 208 of the vehicle 204. Additionally or alternatively, the one or more zones 212 may occupy a portion of an area 208 of the vehicle 204. It is anticipated that the one or more areas 208 of a vehicle 204 may comprise different zone 212 to area 208 ratios. For example, a vehicle 204 may comprise a first area 208 a including a first zone 212 a and a second zone 212 b. This first area 208 a may correspond to the proximal portion of a vehicle 204. The first zone 212 a may represent a driver/operator seat of a vehicle 204, while the second zone 212 b may represent a proximal passenger seat of a vehicle 204. Continuing the example above, a second area 208 b may include a third zone 212 c, a fourth zone 212 d, and a fifth zone 212 e. This second area 208 b may represent a passenger area of a vehicle 204. The third zone 212 c, fourth zone 212 d, and fifth zone 212 e may represent individual passenger seats, and/or areas, in the passenger area of the vehicle 204.
  • In some embodiments, each area 208, 216, 220 and/or zone 212 associated with a vehicle 204 may comprise one or more sensors to determine a presence in and/or adjacent to each area 208, 216, 220 and/or zone 212. The sensors may include vehicle sensors 132 and/or non-vehicle sensors 140 as described herein. It is anticipated that the sensors may be configured to communicate with a vehicle controls system and/or the feature control module 104. Additionally or alternatively, the sensors may communicate with a device 108. The communication of sensors with the vehicle 204 may initiate and/or terminate the control of device 108 features. For example, a vehicle operator may be located in a second outside area 220 associated with a vehicle 204. As the operator approaches the first outside area 216 associated with the vehicle 204, the feature control module 104 may determine to control features associated with one or more device 108. In an exemplary embodiment, the feature control module 104 may determine to control features associated with the device 108 of the vehicle operator. In this scenario, the feature control module 104 may determine to control a vehicle status application on the device 108. Once the vehicle operator enters the vehicle 204, the sensors 132, 140 may determine that the vehicle operator is in an area 208 and/or zone 212. As is further described herein, the feature control module 104 may utilize the device 108, and/or user 112, location information to control features of the device 108 based on rules.
  • FIGS. 3-6 depict multiple methods of the feature control system 100 operation. In some embodiments, the feature control system 100 methods may be controlled manually via user input and/or automatically via a processor.
  • FIG. 3 is a flow diagram depicting a first feature control system method 300 in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure. The method 300 begins at step 304 by detecting one or more devices 108 associated with the vehicle 204. Detection may include a voluntary registration and/or communication between a vehicle 204 and a device 108. Among other things, this type of registration and/or communication may be facilitated via the installation of an application on the device 108. In some embodiments, the application may provide one or more of a communication protocol, use permissions, and access to the feature control module 104. For example, a user may turn on a newly presented device 108 inside a vehicle 204, and as a result may be prompted to register the device 108 with the vehicle 204. This registration prompt process may be effected automatically and/or manually. In some embodiments, the feature control module 104, utilizing one or more sensors 132, 140, may detect the presence of a device 108 and send a signal to the device 108 in the form of an installation prompt.
  • In other embodiments, the feature control module 104 may communicate with a device 108 via a physical electrical connection. For instance, the feature control module 104 may include an electrical interconnection configured to facilitate communications between the feature control module 104 and at least one device 108. In one embodiment of the present disclosure the electrical interconnection may provide power to the device 108 via this electrical interconnection.
  • In yet another embodiment, the feature control module 104 may communicate with a device 108 via one or more wireless protocol. It is anticipated that the wireless protocol may include, but is not limited to, one or more existing communications protocols and/or equivalents thereof. Common device 108 communications protocols may include Bluetooth®, Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 standards), RF, IR, and variations thereof. In some instances, a device 108 may be paired with one or more sensors used by the feature control module 104 to allow persistent and/or reestablishing communications between the device 108 and the feature control module 104.
  • The method 300 continues at step 312 by determining the location of the one or more detected devices 108. In accordance with some embodiments of the present disclosure, the location of a device 108 may be found using vehicle sensors 132 and/or non-vehicle sensors 140. For example, a device 108 may be detected using sensors 132, 140 found inside a vehicle 204. The location of the device 108 inside the vehicle 204 may be obtained via the use of triangulation, sensing, and/or ranging techniques (e.g., measuring signal strength from different points, ping and response, and/or similar position detecting procedures). The procedure of determining a location associated with a device 108 becomes more streamlined upon the physical connection to a known port/electrical connection of the vehicle 204. Moreover, if the device 108 is registered to a particular user 112, the location of the device 108 may be interpreted using stored preferences and/or settings. It is an aspect of the present disclosure that the device 108 itself may report a position/location. This location may be provided via typical device 108 location services such as GPS, Wi-Fi data, and/or cellular data.
  • In some embodiments, different locations of a device 108 may provide different responses from the feature control module 104. For example, a device 108 may be determined to be in a location where use of a device 108 is considered to be highly-restricted. The driver's seat and/or pilot area may be an example of such a highly-restricted use location. As such, the feature control module 104 may limit access to the device 108 and/or features of the device 108 based on rules assigned to this zone 212 and/or area 208. In accordance with the present disclosure, another location of the vehicle 204 may be classified as a restricted location. In such locations, the feature control module 104 may determine to control access to the device 108 and/or features of the device 108 based on less restrictive rules than those used for the highly-restricted location. In some embodiments, a device 108 may be used in an unrestricted location. This unrestricted location may allow a user 112 complete access to a device 108 based on rules defined for the unrestricted location. As can be appreciated, different areas 208 and/or zones 212 of a vehicle 204 may be classified as various levels of restricted use. Although the highly-restricted, restricted, and unrestricted locations have be presented herein, it is an aspect of the present disclosure that may levels of restricted and/or unrestricted use may be utilized by the feature control module 104.
  • In some embodiments, the method 300 continues by determining one or more vehicle-device use laws (step 312). These vehicle-device use laws may be provided by an organization, governmental entity, group, individual, and/or combinations thereof. Additionally or alternatively, the laws may be created in response to detected input and/or conditions monitored by the feature control module 104, device 108, and/or sensors 132, 140. The laws may be stored in local memory 106 by the feature control module 104, or the laws may be retrieved from another stored data memory 120, 124. In some cases, the feature control module may refer to a remote memory 120, 124 to determine laws and/or rules associated with a specific locality, region, user 112, and/or device 108.
  • In an exemplary embodiment, the laws may be statutes and/or regulations that are enforced by a government entity. These laws may define vehicle, traffic, transportation, and/or safety rules associated with a given geographical region. Moreover, these laws may be stored locally and/or remotely as described herein. Furthermore, the laws may be updated from time to time to, among other things, account for changes in the laws. For example, the State of Idaho may ban the use of texting (i.e., sending a text message via some device 108) while driving, but may allow the use of a handheld mobile phone (e.g., device). In contrast, the State of Oregon may completely ban the use of handheld devices. While the user 112 is traveling in Idaho, the feature control module 104 may refer to the laws of Idaho and determine to control the device 108 in accordance with Idaho law. However, once the user 112 is detected as being in Oregon, the feature control module 104 may control the device 108 based, at least in part, on the laws of Oregon. This procedure will be described further herein, however, it should be noted that the vehicle sensors 132 and/or other sensors 140 may determine at least one location of the device 108, and refer to laws associated with that at least one location to control the device 108 accordingly.
  • The method continues at step 316 by determining settings of the one or more associated devices 108. These settings may include data relating to the feature control module 104, communications, permissions, device 108 control, methods, user preferences, historical data, and the like. As can be appreciated, a device 108 may have multiple power states associated with its operation. Most devices, including smartphones, tablets, handheld computers, and the like, do not have simple “On/Off” states. To differentiate between these power states, the following terminology will be used to better define the multiple power states of a device 108. “Device Off” is used to indicate that the device 108 is completely turned off; in other words, virtually no power is being used by the communication device 108 in this state. When “Device Off” the device 108 cannot receive or transmit typical communications, signals, alerts, and the like. “Device On” is used to indicate that the device 108 is turned on, capable of receiving and transmitting communications, signals, and alerts, and power is directed to the device 108 display and all recruited components. In some embodiments, “Device On” may indicate that the device 108 display is fully powered. In another embodiment, a fully powered display may indicate that the device 108 is in a condition to detect input received at all areas of the display (e.g., touch-screen). “Device Lock” is used to indicate that power to the communication device 108 display is limited, but the device 108 is capable of receiving and transmitting communications, signals, alerts, and the like. Device Lock saves battery power by reducing power supplied to the display while allowing applications to present an alert to the display or other indicator upon direction of the feature control module 104 and/or an application. In an embodiment where the display may comprise a touch-screen, a Device Lock state may cause reduced power to be directed to the display (e.g., in a limited area or section of the display). In accordance with some embodiments of the present disclosure, the feature control module 104 and/or application may transition the device 108 from a Device On state to a Device Lock state and vice versa.
  • The settings of a device 108 may be configured to lock the device 108, or operate the device 108 in a Device Lock state, when controlled by the feature control module 104. For instance, a parent/guardian may configure a child's device 108 to be controlled in accordance with strict settings and/or preferences. In this instance, the parent/guardian may determine that a device 108 may be a distraction to a child, while driving, in any state other than the Device Lock state. As such, the parent/guardian can set the device 108 to respond to feature control module 104 controls by operating the device in a Device Lock state. In contrast, a parent/guardian may wish to configure the settings of a device 108 to be less strict and allow access to other features of the device 108. In this case, a parent/guardian may configure a device 108 to only lock specific features associated with the device 108. In any event, the device 108 may be controlled at higher levels of strictness than provided by the vehicle-device laws determined in step 312. These higher levels of strictness may be provided by user preferences and/or device 108 settings. In some cases, the device 108 state may override settings, laws, and/or preferences.
  • The method continues by determining the state of the device 108 (step 320). States of the device 108 may include one or more power state (on, off, and/or locked), orientation (vertical, horizontal, angle, etc.), operation (e.g., input type, running and/or background applications), sensor states, and the like. Among other things, specific device 108 states may indicate one or more conditions related to the user 112, vehicle 204, and/or the device 108 itself. For example, a device 108 may be in an unpowered, or Device Off, state and as such the condition may preclude control by the feature control module 104. On the other hand, the state information of the device 108 may indicate that the device 108 is operating in a Device On state and may be subject to control via the feature control module 104. It is an aspect that sensor information received from a device 108 may determine control via the feature control module 104. For instance, one or more sensors on a device 108 may detect an impact, shock, and/or other tactile input and may correlate the data (in some instances in combination with other data) to determine a response by the feature control module 104.
  • The vehicle state is determined at step 324. This vehicle state may include but is not limited to vehicle motion (driving, stopped, etc.), position (geographically), speed, acceleration, deceleration, transmission state (in-park, engaged drive, engaged reverse, in-gear, neutral), component status (parking brake, airbag, safety restraint system, engine control unit (ECU) output, CANbus activity), occupants (number, position, weight, and the like), sensor information (temperatures, pressures, etc.), and combinations thereof. In an exemplary embodiment, a user 112 may be driving a vehicle 204 while attempting to simultaneously operate an associated device 108. Upon detecting that the vehicle 204 is moving, the feature control module 104 may control the device 108 and/or features of the device 108 accordingly. Additionally or alternatively, when the vehicle 204 is determined to be in a stationary state (i.e., not moving), and even in-park, the feature control module 104 may determine to cease controlling the device 108.
  • In some embodiments, the vehicle 204 state may indicate an emergency condition. For example, the vehicle 204, via one or more sensors 132, 140 may indicate that the vehicle 204 has been subjected to substantial amounts of impact force, the airbag deployed, the anti-lock braking system engaged, the vehicle 204 instantaneously moved in a direction contrary to historical data collected over time, the speed of the vehicle reduced dramatically, and more. These exemplary sensor responses may be indicative of an accident. In any event, the feature control module 104 may be configured to address emergency scenarios, especially with respect to the control of one or more devices 108. In one embodiment, an emergency state may cause the feature control module 104 to provide unfettered access to the device 108 and/or its features. In another embodiment, an emergency state may cause the feature control module 104 to present an emergency message to the one or more devices 108. This emergency message may be sent to emergency services personnel and/or a third party. Furthermore, the emergency message may include details regarding the emergency, the state of the vehicle 204, the state of a user 112, and/or the state of the device 108.
  • The feature control module 104 is configured to control one or more devices 108 based at least in part on rules (step 328). In general, the feature control module may utilize any one or more of the steps presented herein in determining control of the one or more devices 108. In some embodiments, the rules may direct that all of the steps disclosed herein be considered before the specific control of a device 108 is initiated. These rules may include at least one algorithm to provide a controlling action response from the feature control module 104. The rules may use sensor information collected, settings, laws, and more in determining a control action.
  • Control of a device 108 may take a number of forms. In some embodiments, control of a device 108 may include restricting access to specific applications, programs, and/or features of the device 108. For example, a user 112 whose device is being controlled by a feature control module 104 may be allowed to access the home screen of a device 108 to check the time and/or date. However, this user 112 may be restricted, by the feature control module 104, from accessing a communications interface (e.g., telephone, texting, SMS, MMS, email, web browsers, and the like). Additionally or alternatively, the user may be restricted from accessing programs that require physical input at the device 108. For instance, a user 112 may be allowed to use the device 108 to send some form of communication and/or interface with the device 108 using voice commands and/or visual input.
  • In some embodiments, the control of a device 108 may include transitioning the device 108 from one state to another. Among other things, various device 108 states may include Device On, Device Off, and Device Lock. In accordance with the present disclosure, and as previously stated, the rules may refer to location of the device 108 to activate and/or deactivate a control action. Additionally or alternatively, a control message may be presented to an interface associated with the device 108 to indicate that the device 108 is controlled or released from control.
  • In other embodiments, the control of a device 108 may include blocking communications to and/or from the device 108. This type of communications control may be activated in one or more of an area 208, a zone 212, and a device 108. For instance, if one or more devices 108 are detected in a given area 208, the feature control module 104 may determine to control all of the devices 108 together. This control may include interfering with the devices' 108 communication abilities.
  • FIG. 4 is a flow diagram depicting a second feature control system method 400 in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure. In general, the method 400 is directed to detecting a device 108 and any associated settings for the control of the device 108. The method begins at step 404 and proceeds by detecting one or more device 108 (step 408). As disclosed above, detection may be achieved through physical and/or wireless techniques. Moreover, the disclosed detection techniques may be automatically performed and/or manually initiated. If no device 108 is detected, the method ends (step 442).
  • Upon detecting a device, however, the method 400 continues by determining whether any settings are associated with the device 108 (step 412). These settings may include data associated with a user, device, application, and/or feature control module 104. Typical settings may be stored in device data 120, at the feature control module 104 system data 106, and/or remotely in stored data 124. If no settings are detected, the user 112 may be prompted to enter settings, and/or configure the device 108 (step 416).
  • At this point, the user 112 may enter settings as prompted (step 420). In other words, the user 112 may enter settings information at one or more of the device 108, interface to the feature control module 104, and/or at a server 122. The settings may be prompted via at least one application running on the device, a server, and/or running as part of the feature control module 104. If the user fails to enter settings as prompted, the method 400 may continue by optionally controlling the device 108 based on default settings (step 424) and/or end the method (step 442).
  • If settings are available, or if the user 112 enters settings as prompted, the method 400 may continue by controlling the device 108 based at least in part on the settings and on rules stored in memory (step 428). In an exemplary embodiment, the feature control module 104 may control one or more behavior of the device 108. For example, rules may dictate that while a vehicle 204 is in motion, the device 108 should be controlled for all communications applications. Additionally or alternatively, a user 112 may enter settings directing that, when controlled by a feature control module 104, the device 104 should be transitioned to a Device Lock state. Moreover, the user 112 may wish to have an alert/notification pushed to the device 108 interface to indicate that the device 108 is being controlled. This alert/notification may be provided in the form of a message. It is anticipated that vehicle 204 and/or device 108 conditions may be continually monitored by the feature control module 104 to modify the control method 400. Once a device 108 is controlled, the method may return to detecting any available devices 108 (step 408). If no device 108 is found, the method ends (step 442).
  • Referring to FIG. 5, a flow diagram is shown depicting a third feature control system method 500 in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure. Among other things, the method 500 discloses a feature control module 104 utilizing device 108 and/or vehicle 204 location to determine at least one control action. The method begins at step 504 and proceeds by detecting one or more device 108 (step 508). If no device is found, the method ends (step 520).
  • Upon detecting a device 108, the method 500 continues by determining the location of the device 108 (and/or vehicle 204)(step 512). The location of the device 108 may refer to physical location of the device 108 inside or outside of a vehicle 204. In the event that a device 108 is determined to be located inside a vehicle 204, a specific location of the device 108 may be determined. Additionally or alternatively, the device 108 may be determined to be in a general location inside the vehicle 204. Depending on the rules and/or state of the vehicle 204, the specific location of the device 108 may be important to the feature control module 104 in determining to control the device 108 or its features. For example, a device 108 detected in the driver's seat of a vehicle 204 may be controlled differently than a device 108 detected in the rear passenger seat of a vehicle 204. As one example, a device 108 in the driver's seat may be controlled to more strict conditions. On the other hand, a device 108 found in the rear passenger location may be unrestricted or minimally restricted.
  • In some embodiments, the location of the device 108 may include a location of the vehicle 204. In other words, a location of the device 108 detected inside a vehicle 204, may be provided by a GPS or other location service of the vehicle and/or the device 108 itself. This geographical location of the vehicle 204 may be used by the feature control module 104 in initiating a control action. In particular, the feature control module 104 may refer to laws associated with the geographical location of the vehicle 204 in controlling the device 108. In some instances, these laws may be related to traffic and/or vehicle-device use statutes created by a government or third party.
  • When the device 108 is location is determined, the method 500 continues by controlling the device 108 based at least partially on the location of the device 108 and stored rules (step 516). As provided in an example above, a device 108 may be controlled in accordance with laws based on the location of the device 108 in the vehicle 204. The method 500 may continue by returning to the step of detecting devices (step 508). If no device is found, the method ends (step 520).
  • FIG. 6 is a flow diagram depicting a fourth feature control system method 600 in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure. In general, the method 600 is directed to determining a state of a vehicle 204 to provide control action guidance for the feature control module 104. In some embodiments, the feature control module 104 may be configured to cease control of a device and/or its applications based on a number of states associated with a vehicle 204. One of these overriding control states is an emergency detected by the feature control module 104.
  • The method 600 begins at step 604 and proceeds by determining whether one or more devices 108 have been detected (step 608). If no device is found, the method ends (step 628). However, upon detecting a device 108, the method 600 continues by determining a state of the vehicle 204 (step 612). A vehicle state may be determined by one or more inputs provided via the vehicle sensors 132, non-vehicle sensors 140, device 108, and a user 112.
  • In some embodiments, the method 600 may interpret the nature of the vehicle state determined in step 612. In particular, the feature control module 104 may determine whether the vehicle is in a state of emergency or not (step 616). As described above, an emergency state may be determined from a number of vehicle 204 inputs. For example, various vehicle sensors 132 may indicate that an oil line associated with the vehicle 204 is losing pressure, the engine is reaching an unusually high predetermined temperature, and the safety restraint sensors detect impact at the front of the vehicle 204. This combination of sensor inputs may be enough to qualify as an emergency. In some embodiments, the user 112 may input an override command to indicate an emergency state. This override command may be in the form of video, voice, tactile, or other input.
  • Upon detecting an emergency state of the vehicle 204, the feature control module 104 may be directed to override specific controlled features of the device 108 (step 620). In other words, the feature control module 104 may allow access to all, or less than all, of the features of the device 108. For example, in the event of an emergency, a user's 112 access to the communications applications of a device 108 may be considered important if not critical. Therefore, a detected emergency state may prevent the restricted control of the device's communication hardware and/or software.
  • In the event that the vehicle state is not determined to be an emergency, the method 600 continues by controlling the device 108 based at least partially on the vehicle state and stored rules (step 624). For example, one or more sensors 132, 140 may indicate that a vehicle 204 has reduced speed in a short amount of time. However, the feature control module 104 may determine that this type of scenario is not an emergency. As such, the device 108 may be controlled in accordance with the current vehicle state and rules. For instance, the vehicle state may indicate that the vehicle 204 is stopped and in-park. In this case, the feature control module 104 may allow access to features of the device 108. Upon detecting a state change of the vehicle 204, the feature control module 104 may control the device 108 differently (e.g., restricting access to features of the device 108). The method 600 may continue by returning to the step of detecting devices (step 608). If no device is found the method ends (step 628).
