  • Publication number: 20180120933
    Abstract: The image-based system is used to observe and document eye responses, which include eye gaze tracking, pupil size and reactivity, for either one or both eyes sequentially or simultaneously as well as eye lid movements, condition of the sclera, etc. that are recorded and evaluated by police officers. The system includes a faceplate against which the subject places their face. The faceplate can have illumination devices mounted thereon which transmit beams of infrared light and visual light to illuminate the subject's eyes. An imaging device is removably mounted on the frame of the image-based system to observe and document eye responses to generate images of the subject's illuminated eyes. The generated images are also transmitted to an image display device for display to a test administrator.

  • Patent number: 9022909
    Abstract: The disclosure provides apparatus and methods of use pertaining to an adaptive, multi-functional exercise device. In one embodiment, the exercise device includes a split carriage formed of separate carriage platforms that may optionally be used in a unified mode, in which the carriage platforms move in unison, or in a split mode, in which the carriages move independently. The device also includes at least one set of ropes that are tied to the carriage platforms such that they translate the resistance of the carriage platforms when manually manipulated. The device further includes split hand and/or foot rests that may be adjusted in multiple directions depending on the demands of the particular exercise in practice. Other embodiments are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 8590527
    Abstract: A solar collector system includes a plurality of frames. Each frame includes at least a pair of spaced apart side members, a plurality of cross members connected to the side members, the cross members pivotally moveable from a shipping configuration to a deployed configuration wherein in the deployed configuration, each cross member is positioned relative to an adjacent cross member with a predetermined angle, and a plurality of stantions extending from the frames. The solar collector system further includes a plurality of heliostats, each heliostat mounted to one of the stantions, and a plurality of ballasts coupled to the frames, each ballast having a lower surface contacting the ground without substantially penetrating the ground to maintain a position of the frames on the ground.

  • Patent number: 8381718
    Abstract: The invention in one embodiment includes an aiming device coupled to an actuator and an object. The system comprises a base attached to the actuator, and a frame rotatably affixed to the base and the object. The frame and object rotate together about a first axis in response to activation of the actuator, while the object discretely rotates relative to the frame about a second axis different than the first axis each time the frame rotates a predetermined angle relative to the base.

  • Patent number: 7192146
    Abstract: A ground-based tracking heliostat array comprises a first plurality of elongate row mounts. The elongate row mounts are positioned at least partially between, and are supported by, a first side bracket and a second side bracket. The row mounts are rotatable in a first axis. The array further comprises a plurality of optical elements that are mounted to one or more of the elongate row mounts. The array further comprises a linkage that is mechanically coupled to a first plurality of elongate row mounts. Movement of the linkage causes the first plurality of elongate row mounts to simultaneously rotate in the first axis. The array further comprises a motor configured to move the linkage.

  • Publication number: 20050229924
    Abstract: A non-penetrating, roof-mounted, solar energy concentrator is disclosed. The invention in the preferred embodiment includes a receiver adapted to convert light into electricity; one or more reflectors adapted to direct solar light to the receiver; and a frame affixed to the receiver and one or more reflectors. The frame includes a plurality of footings adapted to frictional affix the frame to a roof, such that the concentrator is detachably secured to the roof with compromising the integrity of the roof. The footings may include or receive ballast used to increase the weight of the concentrator, thereby increasing the friction used to affix the concentrator to the roof without fasteners that penetrate the roof. The footings in some embodiments are also configured to deflect the wind, thereby reducing the wind load on the concentrator.
