  • Patent number: 10398301
    Abstract: Cognitive function testing. At least some of example embodiments are methods including performing a cognitive function test on a patient without calibrating pupil position of the patient. The performing may include: causing a visual cue on a computer screen in front of the patient to move in a predetermined pattern; reading frames from an eye camera that captures images of an eye of the patient while the visual cue moves on the computer screen and the patient visually tracks the visual cue; determining pupil position within the frames; correcting offsets between the stimulus data and the pupil position data; translating the pupil position data from a coordinate space of the eye camera to a coordinate space of the stimulus data; and generating a test score being the cumulative distance between the stimulus data and pupil position data for each corresponding point in time.

  • Publication number: 20190239272
    Abstract: A network analysis terminal is described that operates within a vehicle cabin to generate passenger connectivity experience metrics. The terminal monitors packets communicated through at least one cabin network between a content server and passenger terminals. The terminal receives packets monitored by the network interface and identifies passenger terminal identifiers that are addressed by content of the packets. Names of vehicle passengers associated with the packets are identified using the passenger terminal identifiers as indexes to retrieve the names of vehicle passengers from an information repository that maps names of vehicle passengers to passenger terminal identifiers. Passenger connectivity experience metrics are generated based on measurements performed on the packets over time.

  • Patent number: 10264419
    Abstract: A network analysis terminal is described that operates within a vehicle cabin to generate connectivity metrics. The terminal monitors packets communicated through at least one cabin network between a content server and passenger terminals. The terminal identifies passenger terminal identifiers that are addressed by content of the packets, and identifies names of vehicle passengers associated with the packets using the passenger terminal identifiers as indexes to retrieve the names of vehicle passengers from an information repository that maps names of vehicle passengers to passenger terminal identifiers. The terminal then generates connectivity metrics based on measurements performed on the packets over time and the identified names of the passengers, and controls communications through the at least one cabin network based on the connectivity metrics.

  • Publication number: 20160146571
    Abstract: A multi-axis swivel connector defines rotational axes between parts of the multi-axis swivel connector. Some of the rotational axes can extend cross-wise to one another. Some of the rotational axes can define adjustable inclination angles between parts of the multi-axis swivel connector. Parts of the swivel connector can be respectively configured for at least partially facilitating connections with articles such as a sling and a firearm.

  • Patent number: 9292086
    Abstract: Correlating pupil position to gaze location within a scene. Illustrative embodiments may include correlating pupil position of a user to gaze location within a scene viewed by the user. The correlating may include: illuminating an eye of the user, the eye containing the pupil, and the illuminating with light; creating a first video stream depicting the eye; creating a second video stream depicting the scene in front of the user; determining pupil position within the first video stream; calculating gaze location in the second video stream based on pupil position in the first video stream; and sending an indication of the gaze location in the second video stream to a computer system.
