  • Publication number: 20200301150
    Abstract: Device for remote testing, augmented reality or other visualization needs includes a frame configured to be situated on a person's head, a display assembly on the frame, and a combiner assembly arranged on the frame in a position at least partly in front of right and left eyes of the person. The combiner assembly allows simultaneous viewing by the person of an environment in front of the person and content on the display assembly. The combiner assembly includes an inwardmost layer that is reflective and reflects content of the display assembly to the person's eyes, an intermediate layer that controls light transmission through the combiner assembly, and an outwardmost layer that covers the second layer and provides notification of intrusion attempts into the second layer.

  • Patent number: 10678958
    Abstract: Intrusion-protected memory-containing assembly including a substrate, a data storage component and processor on the substrate, and a chassis intrusion detector assembly around the substrate. The chassis intrusion detector assembly includes a first plastic film, a mesh including conductor wires arranged on the first plastic film, and a second plastic film covering the mesh. The conductor wires are connected together in a single circuit with the processor to form a single transmission line. The second plastic film has sealed edges integrated with the mesh such that the edges are inseparable without breaking one of the conductor wires of the mesh. The processor takes action to prevent access to data in the data storage component upon detecting a variance in current through or impedance of the transmission line defined by the conductor wires caused by breaking of one of the conductor wires, e.g., causes the data storage component to self-destruct.

  • Publication number: 20200152075
    Abstract: Headpiece includes a frame having support structure for supporting the frame on a person's head and a viewing portion in front of the person's face. A light valve assembly in the viewing portion has a first state in which the person can view an object in front of the headpiece and a second state in which viewing of the object is prevented. A biometric identification system on the frame attempts to obtain biometric data about the person. A processor controls whether the light valve assembly is in the first or second state by analyzing biometric data relative to previously obtained biometric data associated with the person and when the analysis indicates that the biometric data does not match, the processor controls the light valve assembly to change from the first to the second state and prevent viewing of the object.

  • Publication number: 20200118456
    Abstract: Device for use in testing includes a frame positionable on a person's head, a display section, and a combiner arranged at least partly in front of the eyes of the person and which allows simultaneous viewing of an environment in front of the person and content on the display section, e.g., test questions. A crossview camera system images from locations on each lateral side of the frame toward the opposite lateral side and below the combiner. An iris camera system images the eyes of the person. A forward-looking camera system images an area in front of the frame. A processor analyze images obtained by the crossview camera system to determine presence of imaging devices, images obtained by the iris camera system to determine position of irises of the person and optionally imaging devices, and images obtained by the forward-looking camera system to determine presence of specific objects.

  • Patent number: 10540907
    Abstract: Headpiece for test-taking includes a frame having support structure for supporting the frame on a person's head and a viewing portion configured to be in front of the person's face when the frame is supported on the person's head, and at least one light valve assembly arranged in the viewing portion. Each light valve assembly has a first state in which the person is able to see therethrough and an alternative second state in which viewing therethrough is prevented. A controller controls whether the light valve assembly is in the first state or the second state to thereby control viewing therethrough. The light valve assembly may be situated rearward of part of the viewing portion. Only the headpiece wearer is thus able to view test questions on a display through the light valve assembly.

  • Publication number: 20190392724
    Abstract: Secure testing system including a frame having a lens portion and a support portion extending rearward therefrom, a housing attached to the frame, and an assembly arranged in the housing. The assembly includes a display oriented rearward, an optional (but preferred) contact microphone that operatively contacts a face of a wearer and detects vibrations of a bone of the wearer, a biometric sensor arranged at least partly in the housing, and a processor that monitors the contact microphone for vibrations and the biometric sensor for changes in biometric data. For testing, the processor directs display of questions on the display, receives answers via a user interface, confirms identity of a test-taker by analyzing biometric data and detects talking by the test-taker indicative of cheating on the test by monitoring vibrations detected by the contact microphone.

  • Patent number: 10438106
    Abstract: Card including a substrate, at least one biometric data entry device on the substrate to receive biometric data about an individual holding the substrate, a memory component on the substrate and containing biometric data about an individual possessing the card and at least one private key, and a processor configured to compare biometric data received via the biometric data entry device to biometric data contained in the memory component to determine whether they match. When there is a biometric data match, a process requiring use of the private key(s) is initiated for authorized use of the card. A chassis intrusion detector system detects tampering with the card and upon such detection, causes deletion of the private key(s) to thereby prevent unauthorized use of the card.

  • Publication number: 20190141467
    Abstract: Method and system for guiding a person to a location includes providing a processor, coupling an operator control such as a user interface to the processor to enable the person to enter a phone number which is provided to the processor, the processor being arranged to determine a physical location associated with the entered phone number, and guiding the person to the physical location associated with the entered phone number as determined by the processor. The method may be implemented in a vehicle context whereby the processor is arranged on a vehicle and the person is guided to the physical location by controlling a steering system, a throttle and/or brakes of the vehicle to automatically guide the vehicle to the physical location. Alternatively, the person may be guided to the physical location by providing audible and/or visual directions to the person operating the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190054874
    Abstract: Vehicular control method to avoid collisions in which a smartphone is coupled to the vehicle while in a vehicular compartment. Data is generated from vehicle-resident sensors about operation of the vehicle and transferred from the vehicle to the smartphone while the smartphone is coupled to the vehicle. A communications network with another vehicle is established using the smartphone and the data transferred from the vehicle to the smartphone and data from sensors on the smartphone is transmitted via the smartphone and established communications network to other vehicle, the data including data about location and movement of the vehicle. Then, while the smartphone is coupled to the vehicle, a vehicular operational function is controlled based in part on data transmitted using the smartphone and established communications network to cause movement of the vehicle to change in order to avoid a collision with the other vehicle.
