Application: Systems and methods for operating a head-mounted display system based on user identity (Patent ID: US20230418054A1)

The patent filed by Magic Leap Inc. describes systems and methods for depth plane selection in display systems, particularly in augmented reality and mixed reality systems. The technology involves presenting virtual image content to a user's eye with different amounts of wavefront divergence corresponding to different depth planes at varying distances. This is achieved by capturing images of the user's eye with a camera and generating an indication based on these images to determine if the user is identified. The display output is then controlled based on this indication, adjusting the wavefront divergence depending on the user's identification status.

The wearable system outlined in the patent includes a display, a camera, and processors that work together to capture and analyze images of the user's eye to determine if they are a registered user. The virtual image content presented to the user's eye is tailored based on the user's identity, with different wavefront divergence settings for registered and non-registered users. The technology also allows for user registration via iris authentication, calibration profile generation, and setting adjustments based on user information. Additionally, the system can present virtual targets to the user and further analyze eye images to enhance user identification.
