  • Patent number: 10315619
    Abstract: A vehicle includes seats having both a primary three-point seatbelt and a supplemental two-point seatbelt. Occupation of a first seat is determined. The three-point seatbelt is determined as being one of buckled and unbuckled. The two-point seatbelt is determined as being one of buckled and unbuckled.

  • Patent number: 10311701
    Abstract: In some examples, systems, methods, and devices are described that generate contextual suggestions for patients. Generation of the contextual suggestions is triggered by certain events performed by a medical professional with respect to a patient (e.g., updating a patient record). The contextual suggestions are related to addressing health conditions of the patient and represent tasks or considerations which the medical professional should be made aware. The contextual suggestions are generated in a way that is considerate of patient context, medical professional context, and contexts of similar patients. The contextual suggestions can be presented to the medical professional for selection and execution.

  • Patent number: 10301929
    Abstract: A method and logging tool for evaluating leakage within a wellbore. In an embodiment, a percussive hammer assembly is selectively actuated to strike the interior wall of a casing, thereby propagating a sound wave along the casing. An array of acoustic detectors are selectively recorded during short time windows based on sound propagation times from the percussive hammer assembly to each acoustic detector, thereby avoiding the need to continuously sample acoustic detectors and collecting voluminous data. A self-tuning mode may be provided to determine sound propagation times.

  • Patent number: 10159435
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a mm-wave radar sensor to be deployed as emotion sensor, being inherently small size, and being able to be produced in low cost manner. The key system relevant components are utilization of mm-wave integrated radar, specific planar high-gain antenna radiation patterns, and analyzing the vital signs of objects by the same apparatus. The objects are human beings with vital signs vibrations, and animals with vital sign vibrations, where the system calculates and detects the frequency of vital sign rates: heartbeats and respiration frequencies. The values of vital signs rates as well as the changes of vital sign rates are used together with objects vital signs profile to calculate the emotion value. Emotion value may be additionally enhanced by specific movement pattern events added additionally in the emotion status evaluation.

  • Patent number: 10163345
    Abstract: A method for providing an event message indicative of an imminent event for a vehicle. In a first step, a first event message and a second event message are initially received. The first event message represents a signal output by a first mobile terminal device in response to the imminent event; and the second event message represents a signal output by a second mobile terminal device in response to the imminent event. In a further step, an aggregated event message is generated on the basis of the first event message and the second event message. A step follows for ascertaining a plausibility value to check the plausibility of the aggregated event message. Finally, the aggregated event message and the plausibility value are output. The aggregated event message and the plausibility value represent a signal that is receivable from at least one mobile playback device.
