  • Patent number: 10535145
    Abstract: A recognition device and method for recognizing a target. The recognition device includes a sensor and an electronic processor. The electronic processor configured to receive the characteristic from the sensor. The electronic processor identifies a profile based on the characteristic and compares the profile to a plurality of predetermined profiles to determine an identity profile. The electronic processor identifies the target based on the identity profile and determines, based on at least one selected from the group consisting of a location of the target, speed of the target, and a direction of movement of the target, a virtual geographic boundary. The electronic processor causes a transmission of the at least one selected from the group consisting of the identity profile and the characteristic to at least one associated device located in the virtual geographic boundary.

  • Publication number: 20190312985
    Abstract: Systems and methods for processing digital image data representing multiple views of an object of interest use a sparse set of digital images along with object of interest profiling to provide a photo gallery for evidence-related workflows. Digital images are related to each other on the basis of common objects of interest represented in the images and their orientations within the views depicted in each image. Object of interest profile datasets, including spatial orientation data, enable efficient tracking of photography sessions in which a set of prescribed views of an object of interest are meant to be captured, as well as object-orientation-based photo gallery navigation. The systems recognize of a set of physical gestures that enable a user to intuitively navigate among digital images depicting different views of an object of interest based on how they were physically related to each other when captured.

  • Patent number: 10440526
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for PTT over IoT is described herein. During operation each IoT device will be assigned to a talkgroup. Some talkgroups may have a single IoT device assigned, some IoT device may have multiple talkgroups assigned, and other talkgroups may have multiple IoT devices assigned. During operation, an action command is received over a first talkgroup and a first command type is issued to a first IoT device assigned to that talkgroup. A second action command is received over a second talkgroup and a second command type is issued to a second IoT device assigned to the second talkgroup. When determine that multiple radios are issuing action command to the same IoT device through PTT talkgroup, create a new PTT talkgroup to be populated with the multiple radios.

  • Patent number: 10409413
    Abstract: A user interface apparatus and method are provided for gloved and non-gloved touch sensitive button actuation. A user interface (100) embodied as a body wearable harness (104) provides a touch button control system having an activation button (120) and functional touch sensitive control buttons (108, 110, 140). The activation button (120) has a capacitive touch element (130) associated therewith that determines gloved or non-gloved operation based on a capacitive measurement taken in response to a finger input to the button. A plurality of control buttons (108, 110, and 140) are automatically assigned increased sensitivity levels in response to detected gloved mode operation in accordance with the measurement. The increased sensitivity levels allow various radio functions to be accessed by a gloved finger input during gloved mode operation with increased reliability. Additional control button identification can be added through the addition of vibrational alerts.

  • Patent number: 10380544
    Abstract: Improved incident scene investigation is provided by displaying the incident scene and evidence pertaining to the incident scene on a display of a portable communication device where the display is augmented with tagged evidence attributes and/or further augmented with geofenced safeguard areas surrounding pieces of evidence. The evidence attributes provide and display risk assessment information as to which pieces of evidence at an incident scene are vulnerable to being contaminated or damaged. The evidence attributes may further provide and display an impact factor indicator indicating whether a piece of evidence is likely to be impacted by a context factor from the incident scene. Alerts can be generated at the portable device upon approach to a geofenced safeguarded area surrounding vulnerable evidence. The augmented display of the incident scene can also redirect a user approaching a particular piece of evidence.

  • Publication number: 20190155385
    Abstract: A smart ring (100) provides multi-mode control in a personal area network (PAN). The smart ring has a fingerprint sensor (106) for identifying upon which finger and which finger segment the smart ring is being worn. A controller (902) of the smart ring (100) enables a predetermined PAN device and PAN control function in response to identified finger and finger segment information (1, 2, 3) matching pre-stored fingerprint information. One of the PAN devices is thus selectively enabled and a predetermined function is controlled, based on identification of the finger and finger segment location of the smart ring (100). Several different PAN devices (narrowband radio, body-worn camera, sensors, gun holster, remote speaker microphone, broadband device, to name a few) can be selectively controlled and varied via rotation of the smart ring (100), making the smart ring well suited for public safety applications.
