Application: Optical expression detection (Patent ID: US20240105169A1)

The patent filed by Raytheon Technologies Corp. describes a biometric authentication system using headwear with biosensors to sample muscle activity and authenticate users based on characteristic muscle activity stored in a data set. The system includes sensors to detect facial muscle activity, a processor to analyze the data captured by the sensors, and determine the activity of facial muscles based on predetermined datasets. The processor combines data from optical flow sensors, EMG sensors, and proximity sensors to determine muscle activity levels and authenticate users based on this information.

The system further includes features such as weighting the data captured by sensors based on muscle activity levels, preferentially weighting data from different sensors at varying levels of muscle activity, and determining facial expressions based on muscle activity. The optical flow sensor can be configured in different ways, such as using a single pixel sensor or an optical phased array. Additionally, the system includes motion sensors to filter data describing movement of skin areas based on overall motion of the apparatus, ensuring accurate detection of facial muscle activity. The processor can adjust the output based on the magnitude of movement detected by the motion sensors, providing a reliable authentication system that takes into account user movements and muscle activity.
