A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20240015432A1) describes an innovative acoustic many-to-many localization, communication, and management system designed for groups of individuals who are moving or maneuvering. The system includes portable hardware devices distributed to group members, each equipped with arrays of speakers and microphones, as well as hardware processors. These devices allow for speech captured by one microphone to be converted into ultrasonic signals and transmitted to another device's speaker, enabling group members to communicate effectively even when not in close proximity.

Furthermore, the system incorporates features such as location marking, homing functionality, roll call capabilities, threat detection, and localization alerts. By utilizing triangulation with at least three microphones in each device, the system can discern the azimuthal orientation of group members and provide alerts if someone is off course. Additionally, the system enables human-to-human communication, device-to-human communication, and device-to-device communication, enhancing overall group coordination and safety. The method outlined in the patent involves broadcasting localization request signals and computing angles and distances between devices to monitor the locations of group members on the move, transforming relative locations into absolute locations for accurate tracking using independent location knowledge such as GPS data. Overall, this system offers a comprehensive solution for managing group communication and localization in dynamic environments, ensuring efficient coordination and safety for all members involved.
