  • Patent number: 10679108
    Abstract: A transponder with a disrupting signal source to shut down the transponder. The transponder may use an RFID chip. The disrupting signal source can be an electrical signal source electrically coupled to the RFID chip, for example capacitively coupled. The disruptive signal source can also be a radiation source, for example an infrared source. The disrupting signal source can be connected to a receiver to allow the transponder to be shut down remotely. Multiple transponders as described can be combined to form a multi-transponder device in which transponders can be shut down selectively.

  • Patent number: 10543847
    Abstract: A database of high risk locations is formed and high risk causal factors for the high risk locations determined. Driver behavior is monitored at the sites in the database using data collection devices such as electronic logging devices or mobile phones to see if the drivers exhibit the same specific behaviors that are considered contributing factors to specific accident types at risk of occurrence at those sites. Warnings are provided to drivers approaching the specific sites to prompt behavioral changes which may further be monitored by the data collection devices.

  • Patent number: 9311816
    Abstract: Magnetometers under the road surface detect variations in the vertical and longitudinal horizontal components of the magnetic field over time in response to passing vehicles. A trajectory of these components in the phase space of these field components is regularized to obtain a magnetic signature. Magnetic signatures are compared using cross-correlation over arc length to identify vehicles. Inductance sensors can be used to detect vehicles and help determine the beginning and end of magnetic signatures.

  • Publication number: 20130018705
    Abstract: A location enabled mobile wireless device and central system cooperate to provide traffic control such as vehicle inspection site services and toll station services. Traffic control information such as vehicle inspection site information and toll station information is independently processed by a third party provider and sent to the central system. The mobile wireless device monitors its location and sends location and vehicle related information to the central system. The central system compares data from the third party provider and the mobile wireless device. The mobile wireless device or the central system take an action based on the comparison, such as toll payment or vehicle inspection site operations.
