  • Publication number: 20190357834
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an apparatus is presented that receives a driving style of a driver, senses a parameter or parameters of a driver and/or at least one passenger within a vehicle, correlates the parameter(s) to the driving style, and triggers feedback to the driver of the correlated parameter(s) of the at least one passenger or to the passenger of the correlated parameters parameter(s) of the driver. The invention provides, among other features, a mechanism to increase positive interactions between the driver and the passenger(s) and to decrease or avoid negative interactions, which leads to a safer use of the vehicle based on the correlations between measured health/well-being data and driving style or behavior.

  • Patent number: 10058272
    Abstract: The sleep monitoring system uses a motion vector estimator to determine motion vectors as a function of location in camera images. A signal processing system with an input coupled to the motion vector estimator computes a measure of turning motion, by summing motion vectors from respective locations within an image. Pose changes are detected based on the measure of turning motion. The measure of turning motion may be computed from a sum of components of the motion vectors that are normal to the major axis of a body area in the image, which is determined based on image content changes in a set of images from the camera. To avoid false turning detection due to leg kicking or similar motion the detected turning motion may be reduced to zero if it is not detected in a sufficiently large part of the body area.

  • Publication number: 20180000408
    Abstract: A sleep monitor for monitoring baby sleep uses sleep state classification based on heartbeat feature respiration features. The sleep monitor automatically retrains the classification during use of the sleep monitor. Training examples for use in this training process are generated automatically by detecting time instants whereat the baby in the bed is in a wake state, based on signals from the at least one of a sound feature detector a movement feature detector (112) and an open eye detector (114). The retraining may comprise using time sequence from the end of detection of wake states to assign a class to heartbeat feature and/or respiration feature values during that time sequence for the training process. In an embodiment, the retraining comprises clustering detected heartbeat feature and/or respiration feature values detected outside the detected wake states.
