Procter & Gamble had one patents in internet of things during Q3 2023. The Procter & Gamble Co has filed patents for various wearable articles with elastic belts. These articles have arrays of elastic bodies arranged in specific patterns, such as concentric arrays or sets of concentrated arrays. The belts may have front and back belts with belt artwork printed on them, as well as a transitional region and a crotch artwork region. The patents also include environmental imaging and graphical mapping systems for tracking cleaning activity in a physical environment. These systems use sensors to capture environmental images and generate graphical mappings to indicate the clean status of different regions. A graphical user interface displays the graphical mapping visually. GlobalData’s report on Procter & Gamble gives a 360-degreee view of the company including its patenting strategy.

Application: Environmental imaging and graphical mapping systems and methods for tracking cleaning activity in a physical environment (Patent ID: US20230237712A1)
The patent filed by The Procter & Gamble Co. describes environmental imaging and graphical mapping systems and methods for tracking cleaning activity in a physical environment. The system includes a sensor that captures environmental images of a target area, and a graphical mapping is generated based on these images. The graphical mapping defines regions within the target area. The system also detects the position of a cleaning implement within the target area and updates the graphical mapping to indicate the clean status of a region. A graphical user interface (GUI) displays the graphical mapping, visually indicating the clean status of the region.
The method includes obtaining environmental images captured by a sensor, generating a graphical mapping of the target area based on these images, and detecting the position of a cleaning implement within the target area. The method also involves updating the graphical mapping to indicate the clean status of a region and displaying the graphical mapping on a GUI.
The system and method can be implemented using a mobile device or a wearable device. In the case of a mobile device, the device can be attached to the cleaning implement, and the position value is generated as the implement moves within the target area. The wearable device can also generate the position value as the implement moves within the target area.
Additional features of the system and method include detecting a second position value and updating the graphical mapping to indicate the clean status of a second region. The GUI can also receive selections indicating activity regions and virtual incentives, and the graphical mapping and GUI can be updated accordingly. The system and method can use various types of sensors, such as LiDAR, RADAR, camera, or ultrasonic sensors, to capture environmental images.
The graphical mapping can be generated and displayed in real time or near real time. It can also remove objects from the images to render the graphical mapping without the objects. The system and method can also determine health-related data of a user and transmit progress status or incentives to a social media platform for sharing.
Overall, the patent describes a system and method for tracking cleaning activity using environmental imaging and graphical mapping, providing a visual representation of the clean status of different regions within a target area.
