Application: Recommendations for extended reality systems (Patent ID: US20240104869A1)

The patent filed by Qualcomm Inc. describes techniques and systems for providing recommendations for extended reality systems. The system determines environmental features of the real-world environment and user features of the user of the extended reality system to output notifications associated with applications supported by the system. The apparatus includes a memory and processor to determine environmental features, prioritize applications, display recommendations, and modify applications based on user interactions and environmental factors.

The system can detect physical objects and activities in the real-world environment using image data captured by an image sensor. It can also determine user features based on biological sensors capturing physiological or emotional data. The processor can monitor user application preferences and historical usage patterns to recommend applications. Additionally, the system can modify applications based on user interactions and environmental factors. The method involves determining environmental features, prioritizing applications, displaying recommendations, and potentially modifying applications based on the real-world environment and user interactions. The system aims to enhance the user experience in extended reality systems by providing personalized and context-aware application recommendations.
