A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230288522A1) describes a localization device that can determine its location using wireless communication and satellite geospatial location technology. The device includes a wireless communication antenna, a satellite geospatial location module, and a controller.

The controller is responsible for controlling the wireless communication antenna to scan wireless access points in the device's vicinity and determine wireless network data associated with these access points. This data is then used to determine the environment type in which the device is located, distinguishing between indoor and outdoor environments. Based on the environment type, the controller generates location indication data for the device.

The location indication data is then sent to a location database via one of the identified wireless access points. Additionally, the device can enter a sleep mode to conserve power. The controller can also wake the device from sleep mode after a specified sleep time period has elapsed, which can range from 10 to 60 seconds.

The controller can determine the environment type by comparing network identifiers in the wireless network data with stored network identifiers associated with different environment types. Furthermore, the controller can establish a connection with a clock server via one of the identified wireless access points to determine the current time and date.

To ensure efficient power consumption, the controller or a battery management module is configured to keep the device's power consumption below a threshold of less than 1.3 W.

The location indication data for the device can include wireless network data corresponding to identified wireless access points or the location of the device determined from signals received from geospatial location satellites.

In summary, this patent describes a localization device that utilizes wireless communication and satellite geospatial location technology to determine its location. The device can differentiate between indoor and outdoor environments and generate location indication data accordingly. It can also enter a sleep mode to conserve power and wake up after a specified time period. The device's power consumption is kept below a threshold, and it can determine the current time and date through a connection with a clock server.
