Title: STYLUS PAIRING
Abstract:
Examples are disclosed herein that relate to pairing styluses to an interactive display. One example provides a stylus comprising a processor and memory holding instructions executable by the processor. The instructions are executable by the processor to, before sending a pairing request to a display, receive a broadcast packet indicating an occupancy of a set of stylus communication slots of the display, determine that at least one stylus communication slot is available based on the broadcast packet, and responsive to determining that the at least one stylus communication slot is available, selectively send the pairing request to occupy a stylus communication slot based on a pairing request history.
