  • Publication number: 20210199437
    Abstract: Method and system for adjusting a vehicular component based on vehicle position includes obtaining kinematic data from an inertial measurement unit (IMU), deriving, using a processor, information about current vehicle position from the data obtained from the IMU and an earlier known vehicle position, and adjusting the derived current vehicle position to obtain a corrected current vehicle position. The latter is achieved by obtaining images of an external vehicle area using a camera assembly in a fixed relationship to the IMU, identifying multiple landmarks in each image, analyzing each image to derive positional information about each landmark, identifying discrepancies between image-derived positional information about each landmark and positional information about the same landmark obtained from a map database, and adjusting the derived current vehicle position based on identified discrepancies to obtain the corrected current vehicle position.

  • Patent number: 10678958
    Abstract: Intrusion-protected memory-containing assembly including a substrate, a data storage component and processor on the substrate, and a chassis intrusion detector assembly around the substrate. The chassis intrusion detector assembly includes a first plastic film, a mesh including conductor wires arranged on the first plastic film, and a second plastic film covering the mesh. The conductor wires are connected together in a single circuit with the processor to form a single transmission line. The second plastic film has sealed edges integrated with the mesh such that the edges are inseparable without breaking one of the conductor wires of the mesh. The processor takes action to prevent access to data in the data storage component upon detecting a variance in current through or impedance of the transmission line defined by the conductor wires caused by breaking of one of the conductor wires, e.g., causes the data storage component to self-destruct.

  • Publication number: 20200152075
    Abstract: Headpiece includes a frame having support structure for supporting the frame on a person's head and a viewing portion in front of the person's face. A light valve assembly in the viewing portion has a first state in which the person can view an object in front of the headpiece and a second state in which viewing of the object is prevented. A biometric identification system on the frame attempts to obtain biometric data about the person. A processor controls whether the light valve assembly is in the first or second state by analyzing biometric data relative to previously obtained biometric data associated with the person and when the analysis indicates that the biometric data does not match, the processor controls the light valve assembly to change from the first to the second state and prevent viewing of the object.

  • Patent number: 10540907
    Abstract: Headpiece for test-taking includes a frame having support structure for supporting the frame on a person's head and a viewing portion configured to be in front of the person's face when the frame is supported on the person's head, and at least one light valve assembly arranged in the viewing portion. Each light valve assembly has a first state in which the person is able to see therethrough and an alternative second state in which viewing therethrough is prevented. A controller controls whether the light valve assembly is in the first state or the second state to thereby control viewing therethrough. The light valve assembly may be situated rearward of part of the viewing portion. Only the headpiece wearer is thus able to view test questions on a display through the light valve assembly.

  • Publication number: 20190054874
    Abstract: Vehicular control method to avoid collisions in which a smartphone is coupled to the vehicle while in a vehicular compartment. Data is generated from vehicle-resident sensors about operation of the vehicle and transferred from the vehicle to the smartphone while the smartphone is coupled to the vehicle. A communications network with another vehicle is established using the smartphone and the data transferred from the vehicle to the smartphone and data from sensors on the smartphone is transmitted via the smartphone and established communications network to other vehicle, the data including data about location and movement of the vehicle. Then, while the smartphone is coupled to the vehicle, a vehicular operational function is controlled based in part on data transmitted using the smartphone and established communications network to cause movement of the vehicle to change in order to avoid a collision with the other vehicle.

  • Patent number: 9997068
    Abstract: Method for conveying driving conditions and using the conveyed driving conditions for vehicular control includes generating information about a travel surface or an environment around the travel surface using sensors fixed in position relative to the travel surface. Each sensor includes a measuring or detecting component that measures or detects a property or condition of the travel surface or the environment around the travel surface. A communication of the information generated by that sensor to a vehicle or its occupant is initiated only when that vehicle is within the set distance from a sensor. Operation of a display, navigation, control and/or guidance system in that vehicle is caused to change from an existing operating state to one of several different operating states as a result of reception of the communication from the sensor.
