  • Publication number: 20190108741
    Abstract: A sensing and warning system includes a sensor configured to generate data regarding at least one of a user or an object, a warning device configured to be positioned on the user, and a processing circuit. The processing circuit is configured to receive the data from the sensor, determine a command based on the data, and transmit the command to the warning device prior to an impact between the user and the object. The warning device is configured to implement the command to provide a warning to the user in an attempt to (i) prevent the impact or (ii) reduce a magnitude of the impact between the user and the object.

  • Publication number: 20180200603
    Abstract: A penalty allocation system includes a first equipment, a second equipment, and a processing circuit. The first equipment is configured to be worn by a first player. The first equipment includes a signal-carrying material configured to carry a signal. The second equipment is configured to be worn by a second player. The second equipment includes a sensor configured to acquire signal data from the signal in response to the sensor of the second equipment directly engaging the signal-carrying material during an impact between the first equipment and the second equipment. The processing circuit is configured to determine at least one of a penalty and a reward for a recipient regarding the impact between the first player and the second player based on the signal data. The recipient includes at least one of the first player and the second player.

  • Patent number: 4547243
    Abstract: A continuous elastic ribbon is fed to a diaper assembly station in a stretched condition while, at the same time, an adhesive is continuously applied to the elastic ribbon. Simultaneously, absorbent batts, as well as webs of moisture-impervious batt sheet material and moisture-impervious top-sheet material are fed to the diaper assembly station. Further, and simultaneously, while the webs are traveling to the assembly station, the quantity of the adhesive applied to the elastic ribbon is changed so that there is substantially less adhesive in pre-determined isolated portions of the stretched elastic ribbon. At the assembly station, a stretched elastic ribbon is adhered to the moisture-impervious backsheet web along portions of the elastic ribbon which intervene the selected areas of the web while lesser quantities of the adhesive are located.
