  • Publication number: 20110190999
    Abstract: The computer 26 sends actuating signals to the resistive device 34 to resist the occupant input to the accelerator 22, but only when the vehicle speed exceeds a threshold while the seat belt 24 is not fastened about the occupant 28. This invention is characterized by applying the resistance and adjusting the threshold in proportion to the number of times the seat belt 24 is not fastened while the vehicle speed exceeds the threshold compared with the number of times the vehicle 20 exceeds the threshold speed. Also, the threshold may be adjusted so resistance may be applied at speeds that would normally be acceptable to have the seat belt 24 unfastened when the vehicle 20 is operated at these speeds too often.

  • Patent number: 7937202
    Abstract: The computer 26 sends actuating signals to the resistive device 38 to resist the occupant input to the accelerator 22, but only when the vehicle speed exceeds a threshold while the seat belt 24 is not fastened about the occupant 28. This invention is characterized by applying the resistance and adjusting the threshold in proportion to the number of times the seat belt 24 is not fastened while the vehicle speed exceeds the threshold compared with the number of times the vehicle 20 exceeds the threshold speed. Also, the threshold may be adjusted so resistance may be applied at speeds that would normally be acceptable to have the seat belt 24 unfastened when the vehicle 20 is operated at these speeds too often.

  • Patent number: 5543797
    Abstract: The monitoring assembly (10) monitors the location of mobile objects (12), i.e., personnel, within a structure (18). The object (12) carries a transponder (14) which periodically transmits status signals and receives command signals. Transceivers (16) are fixed at locations about the structure (18) for receiving the status signal producing the location signals, and transmitting commands to the transponders. The transmissions and reception occur during prescribed time windows. A central controller (20) is connected to each transceiver (16) and monitors the location of transponders (14) and communication therethrough. The transponders (14) have audio capability of producing audio messages directly to the person thereof, especially during emergency conditions for assistance. The controller (20) transmits synchronizing signals to the transceivers (16), which in turn synchronize themselves and transmit the synchronizing signal to the transponders (14) for synchronizing.

  • Patent number: 5292125
    Abstract: A video game communicator (100) is electrically connected between the ports (A, B) of a local video game (12) and one set of player controls (20) of the local video game (12). The video game communicator (100) receives command signals from the player controls (20) and sends them to the local video game (12). The video game communicator (100) also converts the command signals into communication signals to be sent over telephone lines to be received by another video game communicator (100) connected to a remote video game (30). A transit time circuit (126) delays all command signals coming from the player controls (20) to the local video game (12) an amount of time it determines to be the time needed for the command signals to be sent to the remote video game (30). The video game communicator (100) receives communication signals over the telephone lines (110) and converts these signals into command signals representing the command signals of the remotely located competitor.

  • Patent number: 5144231
    Abstract: An RF oscillator induces eddy currents to be measured in an object. An eddy current probe senses alterations, such as teeth on a disc, for example, in the object which are represented as eddy current signals sensed by an eddy current probe. The present invention separates alteration current signals from offset currents in the eddy current signal to aid in discriminating levels in the alteration current signals. The alteration currents are separated from the offset currents by AC coupling with a high pass filter or separated by a microprocessor as part of a data processing detection routine.

  • Patent number: 4779090
    Abstract: An electronic security system having a locked and at least one unlocked state and comprising at least one electronic access controller and at least one electronic key. The electronic security system employs a predetermined, distinctive, first code stored in memories in each access controller and key, and each electronic key stores a predetermined second code consisting of a number part and an associated time delay part. The number parts of all second codes are also stored in the access controller memory.

  • Patent number: RE36574
    Abstract: A local video game (310) including a communicating controller (326). The controller (326) receives local command signals created by a set of player controls (316). The controller (326) also receives remote command signals received through a modem (324) which were created by a remote video game (320) through a similar set of player controls. The controller (326) includes a synchronizer (328) which produces synchronizing codes to be sent to the remote video game (320) to synchronize the games. The synchronizer (328) synchronizes the local and remote command signals such that both are received by a game microprocessor (322) simultaneously. Memory (336) stores the player parameters and are retrieved whenever the synchronization codas of the local (310) and remote (320) video games have not matched for a predetermined number of iterations.
