Title: REMOTE INITIATION OF TASKS ON IDLE WIRELESS COMPUTING DEVICES
Abstract:
In various embodiments, a wireless computing device (102, 202, 302) for monitoring a person (100) may include: a processor (230); one or more sensors (236) operably coupled with the processor; and one or more radio antennas (232) operably coupled with the processor. The processor may be configured to transition the wireless computing device between at least an idle state and an active state, and to receive, from a remote computing device (112, 212, 312) via the one or more radio antennas while the wireless computing device is in the idle state, via control plane signaling, a request for one or more data points pertaining to a context of the person. One or more sensor signals may then be obtained from the one or more sensors. The requested one or more data points may be generated based on the one or more sensor signals and provided to the remote computing device via the one or more radio antennas.
