HTC had one patents in digitalization during Q1 2024. HTC Corp has developed a wearable authentication system consisting of a head-mounted device and a ring device. The head-mounted device captures an image of the user’s hand and sends an authentication request, while the ring device collects biometric information and tracks its position using an inertial measurement unit. The system then sends authentication information to verify the user’s identity. GlobalData’s report on HTC gives a 360-degree view of the company including its patenting strategy.

Application: Wearable authentication system and ring device (Patent ID: US20240029066A1)

The patent filed by HTC Corp describes a wearable authentication system that includes a head-mounted device and a ring device. The head-mounted device sends an authentication request and captures an image of the user's hand, while the ring device provides an inertial measurement value and gathers biometric information from the user. The system tracks the position of the ring device based on the image and inertial measurement value, sending authentication information to the head-mounted device for verification.

The wearable authentication system utilizes various biometric sensors such as a photoplethysmographic sensor, vein map sensor, and fingerprint sensor to gather biometric information for authentication purposes. The system can be used for virtual shopping experiences, where the position of the ring device determines checkout requests. Additionally, the system includes features like a status light emitting diode, a button for user input, and a near-field communication network module for secure transactions. The authentication information is compared with default biometric information stored in the devices to generate an authentication result, ensuring secure and reliable user verification.
