  • Patent number: 9101824
    Abstract: A system and method for virtual gaming in a vehicle. The system and method include detecting a first set of image position data defining a first set of image position data defining a first position of images projected on a game surface. The system and method include detecting a set of player position data defining a gesture of one or more players relative to the first set of image position data and the game surface. The system and method include calculating a second set of image position data based on the first set of image position data and the set of player position data. The system and method include projecting images according to the second set of image position data on the game surface.

  • Patent number: 9067618
    Abstract: Provided is a system for generating a vehicle steering signal. A non-rotatable steering control is mounted about a steering axis. The steering control includes a pressure sensor configured to generate an output signal in response to hand movements along the steering control. The system includes a hub and at least one spoke connecting the steering control to the hub. The hub is offset from the steering axis. A control unit is configured to generate the vehicle steering signal based on the output signal from the pressure sensor.

  • Publication number: 20150045007
    Abstract: Generally described, the present application relates to a system and method for processing input to control a set of functions and features. More specifically, however, the present application relates to user devices that can be controlled through brain activities or similar actions. In an illustrative embodiment, brain activities are monitored through electroencephalography (EEG). Through EEG, input waves that can be appropriately monitored can be sent to a virtual assistant. The virtual assistant can decipher the number of signals coming and determine a correct output such as a function or feature to be manipulated. In the implementation presented herein, features and functions of a smartphone can be manipulated. Other types of user devices can also be controlled, such as in-vehicle systems, head units, televisions, tablets, computer, laptops, etc.

  • Patent number: 8939839
    Abstract: A computer implemented interactive vehicle gaming system and method includes a first interactive game device connected to a second interactive game device for communication therebetween. At least one game parameter is determined for the first and second game devices associated with driving behavior for at least one vehicle. User input is received on the first game device to initiate a virtual shot against the second game device. After receiving the user input, a shot game result is determined for the virtual shot based on the at least one game parameter. Then, at least one indication of the shot result is provided for at least one of first and second game devices.

  • Publication number: 20140274378
    Abstract: A system for virtual gaming in a vehicle including a first imaging device having an image projection mechanism and an image capture mechanism. The image projection mechanism configured to project images on a game surface. The image capture mechanism configured to detect a first set of image position data defining a position of the images relative to the game surface and detect a set of player position data defining a position of one or more. The system further including a game module for processing the first set of image position data and the set of player position data to calculate a second set of image position data. The system also including an image module for controlling the image projection mechanism to project images according to the second set of image position data. The system also including a processor for executing the game module and the image module.
