‘In one embodiment, the broadcast trigger can occur when data from at least one of a gyroscope, an accelerometer, or a motion processor of the computing system indicates that the computing system is moving in a movement pattern similar to that of a source of the second wireless communication,’ the patent says

It would use a range of sensors, including Bluetooth and NFC, and also analyze signal strength to find out who is nearby

The patent goes on to explain how sensors in the phone could monitor nearby people using the same ‘connection suggestion module’

It could even use GPS, and analyze ‘a stationary pattern, a walking pattern, a running pattern, or a vehicle-riding pattern’ to find users
