  • Patent number: 10067563
    Abstract: User gaze information, which may include a user line of sight, user point of focus, or an area that a user is not looking at, is determined from user body, head, eye and iris positioning. The user gaze information is used to select a context and interaction set for the user. The interaction sets may include grammars for a speech recognition system, movements for a gesture recognition system, physiological states for a user health parameter detection system, or other possible inputs. When a user focuses on a selected object or area, an interaction set associated with that object or area is activated and used to interpret user inputs. Interaction sets may also be selected based upon areas that a user is not viewing. Multiple devices can share gaze information so that a device does not require its own gaze detector.

  • Publication number: 20180087975
    Abstract: A thermographic temperature sensor includes a probe having a housing and a light pipe disposed within the housing. The light pipe includes a thermographic phosphor that may phosphoresce in response to absorbing light. The phosphorescence by the thermographic phosphor is representative of a temperature of a fluid in contact with the probe, and a surface area of the light pipe is not in contact with an inner surface of the housing.

  • Patent number: 9907135
    Abstract: For controlling a level of luminance produced by a color light-emitting diode (LED) array, a method includes: for a predetermined flux bit-slice period, activating a color enable signal to select a primary color LED and to select a predetermined light flux magnitude set-point; selectively charging an energy storage device and discharging the energy storage device through the selected primary color LED to generate a light flux output during the flux bit-slice period; adjusting a rate of selectively charging the energy storage device to maintain a magnitude of the light flux output at the predetermined light flux magnitude set-point during the flux bit-slice period; and adjusting the predetermined light flux magnitude set-point over the life of the selected LED as the selected LED ages as a function of an anode-to-cathode voltage drop across the selected LED for a given magnitude of current flowing through the selected LED.

  • Patent number: 9866239
    Abstract: Embodiments of methods and systems for BMC decoding are described. In an embodiment, a method for BMC decoding involves performing a unit interval estimation of a BMC encoded bit stream, locating a bit boundary of the BMC encoded bit stream based on the unit interval estimation and a known sequence in a preamble of the BMC encoded bit stream, and measuring a time duration across multiple bit transitions from the bit boundary and decoding the BMC encoded bit stream based on the time duration and the unit interval estimation.
