A communications apparatus is included among a communications apparatus group arranged in a given area and capable of communicating with a nearby communications apparatus. The communications apparatus includes a sensor that detects a given property at a location of the communications apparatus; communications circuitry that receives from the nearby communications apparatus, a detection result that is obtained by another communications apparatus, for the given property at the location of the other communications apparatus; a processor that determines whether a difference between the detection result received by the communications circuitry and a detection result of the sensor is a given amount or less. The communications circuitry transmits the received detection result to the nearby communications apparatus, when the processor determines that the difference is the given amount or less, and refrains from transmitting the received detection result, when the processor determines that the difference is not the given amount or less.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
