  • Publication number: 20220189277
    Abstract: A monitoring system and related methods are disclosed. The system has a first apparatus associated with a living target, a second apparatus associated with a protected individual, and a third apparatus associated with a community individual. The first apparatus has a lock for fixing the first apparatus to the living target, a tamper-evidencing mechanism, mechanisms for monitoring a GPS location of the first apparatus, determining the first apparatus is within at least one of a first threshold distance from the second apparatus or a first threshold distance from a pre-set GPS location, warning the living target responsive to the determining the first apparatus is within the at least one of the first threshold distance from the second apparatus or the first threshold distance from the pre-set GPS location, determining the first apparatus is in a banned location, and emitting a debilitating sound.

  • Publication number: 20070219720
    Abstract: A navigation and control system including a sensor configured to locate objects in a predetermined field of view from a vehicle. The sensor has an emitter configured to repeatedly scan a beam into a two-dimensional sector of a plane defined with respect to a first predetermined axis of the vehicle, and a detector configured to detect a reflection of the emitted beam from one of the objects. The sensor includes a panning mechanism configured to pan the plane in which the beam is scanned about a second predetermined axis to produce a three dimensional field of view. The navigation and control system includes a processor configured to determine the existence and location of the objects in the three dimensional field of view based on a position of the vehicle and a time between an emittance of the beam and a reception of the reflection of the emitted beam from one of the objects.

  • Publication number: 20040194263
    Abstract: The clipboard pencil holder is a device that can be easily attached to the clip of a conventional clipboard for the purpose of providing easy and convenient storage and retrieval of a pencil or other similarly-sized writing instrument. The holder holds the pencil horizontally against, and parallel to the clipboard clip while substantially avoiding interference with the clipboard clip's ability to grip a paper pad which, for example, is positioned between the clip and the board of the clipboard.
