Application: Physical access control systems with localization-based intent detection (Patent ID: US20230388799A1)

The patent filed by Assa Abloy AB describes systems and techniques for physical access control systems with localization-based intent detection. The access control system regulates access to an asset by establishing connections with a key-device, receiving user credentials, and determining the user's intent to access the asset using location data derived from the connections. The system then provides the credential to an access controller based on identifying the user's intent to access the asset.

The method outlined in the patent involves establishing wireless connections with a key-device using low power communication protocols and Ultra-Wideband (UWB), determining user intent thresholds based on the connections, and permitting access to the asset accordingly. The patent also includes provisions for validating credentials with an authorization service, storing credentials in cache memory, and removing credentials based on various conditions. Overall, the patent focuses on enhancing access control systems by incorporating localization-based intent detection and efficient credential management processes.
