Abstract: A system and method for internally controlling a mobile communication system, the mobile communication system internally inhibiting communication of a mobile communication device when the communication device achieves a threshold of predetermined momentum, a motion monitoring routine internal to the mobile communication device initiates with device turn on and periodically updates momentum, inhibiting device usage if motion is sustained, when the motion monitoring routine does not detect device motion above the threshold no inhabitation is deployed and full usage including connection to a cellular network is available, a inhibit safety override is facilitated for emergencies or other circumstances, a time out of inhibit when motion has ceased below the threshold for a sustained period.
Abstract: A dedicated processing system for monitoring, processing and combining mass statistical diagnostic data of a process control system. Through real time and near real time network health monitoring by the system statistical inferences can be made to anticipate potential system and device problems with notification(s) to users. A variety of user alerts are facilitated, including status and warning LEDs, direct display, and display on a networked computer. Multiple systems can be employed and systems will discover each other and interoperate. Specific systems can be specified to gather and unify diagnostic data from installations with multiple systems.

Abstract: A method for tracking progress of a construction project is described. The method includes storing a digital representation of a construction project; and monitoring progress of the project. The method also includes comparing the progress with the digital representation and generating a graphical representation of the progress as a function of the digital representation. The progress includes a physical completion of said project and labor and material costs incurred for said physical completion.
Abstract: A method and system for temperature and boost control of engine intake air by use of an active conditioner control unit, which regulates relative amounts of electric current to at least one active conditioning device and an electrically driven booster motor. In one preferred embodiment it controls valves which optimally direct the path of airflow through a plurality of thermal conditioner storage chambers in response to signals from engine load level, temperature, and other sensors in order to optimally provide temperature conditioned air to the engine. This embodiment of the invention features immediate and efficient provision of conditioned and pressurized airflow to an internal combustion engine and removes parasitic power drains during low demand situations. This invention enhances cold start performance and operation with a pre-start thermal conditioner with warming capabilities. System increases flexibility for stationary operation and traffic restraints by supplementing heat sink transfers.
Abstract: An integrated system for increasing power output from an internal combustion engine. System facilitates an interface for controlling and conditioning of the amount of intake air into an internal combustion engine. The system interfaces to a controller and provides critical data, an active intercooler, power buffer, and an electrically driven supercharger. An operator interface provides monitoring and control to a controller for expanded operator control. A power buffer relieves host power system from loading during high demand operation. A system of advanced sensors and processing from a controller combine to facilitate maximum power output with reduced risks. Active heat removal enables system operation in a vehicle at rest or in traffic. Active conditioning system flexibility facilitates improved implementation of cold temperature environment starting and operation. A low cost option with commercial non-positive displacement blowers implements affordable enhancements for internal combustion engines.
