Sleep Number had one patents in cloud during Q4 2023. The patent filed by Sleep Number Corp in Q4 2023 describes a system that uses an acoustic sensor to detect ambient acoustic signals in an environment, generate an ambient acoustic template, suppress ambient acoustic signals in a data stream, and analyze the data stream to determine if human snoring is present. If snoring is detected, a control signal is sent to a home automation device for further action.

Application: Home automation having user privacy protections (Patent ID: US20230412683A1)

The patent filed by Sleep Number Corp describes a system that includes an acoustic sensor positioned in an environment to detect acoustic energy, a controller to analyze the data stream generated by the sensor, suppress ambient acoustic signals, and identify human snoring. The controller can issue control signals to engage a home automation device based on the detection of snoring. The system utilizes short-term and long-term storage to store data related to user interaction and patterns, allowing for the identification of relevant data streams and the suppression of ambient noise to focus on snoring detection.

The system further segments the data stream into frames, performs statistical analysis based on frame properties like energy levels, and generates templates to identify and suppress ambient acoustic signals. By analyzing the data stream against predetermined use patterns related to user presence and sleep states, the system can determine the relevance of the data stream, reduce speech-generated acoustic components, apply encryption and compression, and transmit the processed data to remote storage. Additionally, the controller can detect the presence and intensity of snoring, apply band-pass filters to reduce speech components, and compare subsequent data streams to determine relevance based on user activity patterns, ensuring efficient and accurate snoring detection and home automation engagement.
