  • Patent number: 10786030
    Abstract: A head and neck restraining system is disclosed herein. The system includes a helmet, a neck brace structure, and a tether system. The neck brace structure includes a neck extension that is attached to shoulder extensions. The tether system includes at least one ring structure that is configured to attach to the helmet and a single tether material that slides through the at least one ring. The single tether material is guided along the neck extension and attached to the shoulder extensions.

  • Publication number: 20200250990
    Abstract: A location enabled mobile wireless device and central system cooperate to provide traffic control such as vehicle inspection site services and toll station services. Traffic control information such as vehicle inspection site information and toll station information is independently processed by a third party provider and sent to the central system. The mobile wireless device monitors its location and sends location and vehicle related information to the central system. The central system compares data from the third party provider and the mobile wireless device. The mobile wireless device or the central system take an action based on the comparison, such as toll payment or vehicle inspection site operations.

  • Patent number: 10679108
    Abstract: A transponder with a disrupting signal source to shut down the transponder. The transponder may use an RFID chip. The disrupting signal source can be an electrical signal source electrically coupled to the RFID chip, for example capacitively coupled. The disruptive signal source can also be a radiation source, for example an infrared source. The disrupting signal source can be connected to a receiver to allow the transponder to be shut down remotely. Multiple transponders as described can be combined to form a multi-transponder device in which transponders can be shut down selectively.

  • Publication number: 20200114928
    Abstract: A database of high risk locations is formed and high risk causal factors for the high risk locations determined. Driver behavior is monitored at the sites in the database using data collection devices such as electronic logging devices or mobile phones to see if the drivers exhibit the same specific behaviors that are considered contributing factors to specific accident types at risk of occurrence at those sites. Warnings are provided to drivers approaching the specific sites to prompt behavioral changes which may further be monitored by the data collection devices.

  • Publication number: 20200068977
    Abstract: A head and neck restraining system is disclosed herein. The system includes a helmet, a neck brace structure, and a tether system. The neck brace structure includes a neck extension that is attached to shoulder extensions. The tether system includes a single tether with double thickness terminal ends. The double thickness terminal ends have a plurality of pass-through openings that are adapted to receive a removable securing pin that threadedly secures the tether to the neck brace. The tether also secures the helmet to the neck brace and limits its range of motion during an accident. The tether is removable secured to the neck brace on one side then extends from the neck brace to the helmet, then continues from the helmet to the back of the neck brace, then continues further from the back of the neck brace to the opposite side of the helmet, and then is removable secured to the other side of the neck brace. The tether may be slideablely or fixedly attached to the helmet and neck brace.

  • Publication number: 20190218873
    Abstract: In composite slips and downhole tools using composite slips, there are provided one or more slip segments. The slip segments comprise a body and one or more inserts. The body is a composite material having an outer surface. The inserts each have an upper surface and each of the inserts is mechanically affixed into the body such that the upper surface of each of the inserts extends at least partially out from the outer surface. In some embodiments, the inserts are oval or stadium shaped and have a shoulder that locks the insert from moving by interaction with a shoulder in a cavity wall of the body.

  • Publication number: 20170322762
    Abstract: A method for providing a collaboration session using a designated control pen includes receiving graphical content from either a first computing device associated with a first pen tool or a second computing device associated with a second pen tool. A request can be received from the first computing device to designate the first pen tool as the control pen. In response to the request, the first pen is designated as the control pen and the second pen is disabled so long as the first pen tool retains the control pen designation. The graphical content can be modified based on the interactions made with the designated control pen at the first display area. The modified graphical content is globally displayed, which includes providing the modified graphical content to the second computing device for display at the second display area.

  • Publication number: 20170285903
    Abstract: A method for virtual magnetic management of graphical content can include associating the graphical content with a digital object. First attraction properties are associated with the digital object. Second attraction properties are associated with a graphical tool for managing digital objects. Attraction between the digital object and the graphical tool can be detected based on the first and second attraction properties. If the attraction is detected, the digital object and the graphical tool are displayed as attached to one another at a display area. If no attraction is detected, the digital object and the graphical tool are displayed as detached from one another.
