  • Patent number: 10803737
    Abstract: A vision traffic marker network system includes a management system and a plurality of self-powered wireless traffic nodes configured to collect data from a wireless mesh network. Each wireless traffic node is configured to function as a mesh network traffic node and in each mesh network traffic node, the mesh network traffic node is configured to exchange data between the traffic nodes. Each wireless traffic node in the vision traffic marker system is communicatively coupled to any server and client machine. The management system includes a data acquisition layer, a processing layer, a communication layer, and a management layer. The acquisition layer is configured to receive data from the plurality of wireless traffic nodes and transmit the acquired data to the processing layer so that the acquired data is processed and filtered before the data is broadcasted and distributed the plurality of wireless traffic nodes which in turn exchange or share the data with any server and client machine.

  • Patent number: 10756745
    Abstract: An electrical circuit can bias a sensor, measure current from a sensor, or both of these. In some examples, the electrical circuit can include a comparator having two input terminals and an output terminal. The comparator can be configured to compare input signals applied to the two input terminals and generate an output signal at the output terminal based on the comparison. The electrical circuit can include a switch having a control terminal that is electrically coupled to the output terminal of the comparator. The switch can also include a first connection terminal that is electrically coupled to the sensor and a second connection terminal that is electrically coupled to a charge-packet source. The switch can be switchable between (i) an open state to electrically decouple the sensor from the charge-packet source, and (ii) a closed state to electrically couple the sensor to the charge-packet source.

  • Patent number: 10607482
    Abstract: A vision traffic marker network system comprises a plurality of vision traffic markers or traffic nodes configured to capture information such as an event, an environment, a profile, or a condition of an object such as vehicle, human, combination thereof, or the like, for example. The environment information may be time of day, day of week, weather, traffic condition, and the like. The nodes may be one of a traffic node, an ambient node, a repeater, a gateway, or a combination thereof. These nodes are arranged in network neighborhoods and configured to communicate with at least one of the communication networks with at least one of the vision traffic markers or nodes, a control system, the automotive, a server, a global navigation system, other non-vision devices, traffic lights, street lights, electronic devices, or combination thereof, via one more links, either wirelessly or wired communication.

  • Publication number: 20190387971
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for activating a circuit of an implant device. Consistent with one implementation, an implant device is provided with a sensor including a working electrode (WE) and a counter electrode (CE). The sensor may be configured to generate a first current at the CE when the implant device is implanted in a body of a subject. A sensing circuit may also be provided that is electrically coupled to the WE of the sensor. The sensing circuit may be activated based on the first current and utilize the sensor to measure one or more parameters of an individual or other subject.

  • Patent number: 10492140
    Abstract: The technology described herein relates to auxiliary wakeup for low-power devices. In an implementation, an auxiliary path for waking up a radio frequency (RF) radio of a low-power device is disclosed. The auxiliary path includes peak detector circuitry, pattern detector circuitry and a battery switch. The peak detector circuitry is operable to detect the presence of a RF field at a RF antenna of the low-power device. The pattern detector circuitry is enabled by the presence of a RF field and is operable to detect a time pattern in an amplitude envelope of a wakeup signal received at the RF antenna of the low-power device. The battery switch is operable to connect battery power to a RF radio of the low-power device when the time pattern is detected. Once powered, the RF radio establishes communication with a wakeup device.

  • Patent number: 10298858
    Abstract: A device for generating thermal images includes a low resolution infrared (IR) sensor supported within a housing and having a field of view. The IR sensor is configured to generate thermal images of objects within the field of view having a first resolution. A spatial information sensor supported within the housing is configured to determine a position for each of the thermal images generated by the IR sensor. A processing unit supported within the housing is configured to receive the thermal images and to combine the thermal images based on the determined positions of the thermal images to produce a combined thermal image having a second resolution that is greater than the first resolution.
