  • Publication number: 20140009390
    Abstract: A computer apparatus is associated with a graphical display presenting at least one GUI-component adapted to be manipulated based on user-generated commands An event engine is adapted to receive an eye-tracking data signal that describes a user's point of regard on the display. Based on the signal, the event engine produces a set of non-cursor controlling event output signals, which influence the at least one GUI-component. Each non-cursor controlling event output signal describes a particular aspect of the user's ocular activity in respect of the display. Initially, the event engine receives a control signal request from each of the at least one GUI-component. The control signal request defines a sub-set of the set of non-cursor controlling event output signals which is required by the particular GUI-component. The event engine delivers non-cursor controlling event output signals to the at least one GUI-component in accordance with each respective control signal request.

  • Patent number: 8185845
    Abstract: A computer based eye-tracking solution is disclosed. A computer apparatus is associated with one or more graphical displays (GUI components) that may be manipulated based on user-generated commands. An event engine is adapted to receive an eye-tracking data signal that describes a user's point of regard on the display. Based on the signal, the event engine is adapted to produce a set of non-cursor controlling event output signals, which influence the GUI-components. Each non-cursor controlling event output signal describes a particular aspect of the user's ocular activity in respect of the display. Initially, the proposed event engine receives a control signal request from each of the GUI-components. The control signal request defines a sub-set of the set of non-cursor controlling event output signals which is required by the particular GUI-component. The event engine delivers non-cursor controlling event output signals to the GUI-components in accordance with each respective control signal request.

  • Patent number: 7055673
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device (1) for feeding threadlike objects (2) such as hooks for garment hangers (3). The device (1) comprises a guide rail (4) along which threadlike objects (2) are to be conveyed, a feeder element (5) having a groove (6) into which threadlike objects (2) may be partially or completely received, the feeder element (5) being movable in relation to the guide rail (4) such that a threadlike object (2) received in the groove (6) can be conveyed by the feeder element (5) along the guide rail (4) as the groove (6) moves along the guide rail (4). The guide rail (4) is movable towards and away from the feeder element (5) such that a distance between the feeder element (5) and the guide rail (4) can be adjusted to the size of the threadlike objects (2) that pass through the device (1). The invention also relates to a system (22) for conveying and feeding garment hangers (3) from a first conveyor section (23) to a second conveyor section (24) and to a method for feeding threadlike objects.

  • Patent number: 6446787
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a conveyor for garment hangers, comprising an endless mechanism disposed inside sections with a longitudinal slot upwards, said mechanism having carriers, which project through said slot, and said sections having first sliding surfaces, which are arranged in such a way that a hanger is positioned essentially at right angles in relation to the direction of advance of the conveyor, wherein arranged between two sections is a part with a second sliding surface formed in such a way that the hanger can be turned into a position which is essentially parallel with regard to the direction of transportation.

  • Patent number: 6206178
    Abstract: Apparatus is disclosed for carrying and unloading hangers from a first conveyor to a second conveyor including a carrier mounted on the first conveyor so that a hanger hook can be mounted on the carrier, the carrier including a disc having a normally upper surface eccentrically and swingably mounted with respect to the first conveyor, the normally upper surface of the disc including a groove for the hanger hook, and a wedge mounted adjacent to the first conveyor whereby when the carrier passes adjacent to the wedge, the carrier is caused to swing upwardly displacing the normally upper surface of the disc downwardly and causing the hanger hook to fall out of the groove so that it can be transferred to the second conveyor.
