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 the user's intent to access the asset based on specific intent thresholds, and permitting access accordingly. Additional steps include providing credentials for validation, storing credentials in cache memory, and removing them based on specific conditions. The patent also covers machine-readable mediums containing instructions for performing the described operations, emphasizing the use of Bluetooth Low Energy and authorization services for validation and access control.
