  • Patent number: 9302781
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for monitoring the occupancy of seating. Sensors provide measurements to a control circuit that determines an occupancy state for each seat. Information regarding the occupancy of the seats can be presented on a display. In some instances, additional inputs can be used to adjust the occupancy determinations to account for environmental factors. Also, the occupancy states of the seats can be cross-checked with a passenger manifest to facilitate the boarding of a vehicle containing the seating.

  • Publication number: 20150241209
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for monitoring a storage container. Sensors and a control circuit are used to determine the amount of occupied space in the interior of a container or set of containers. Information regarding the occupied space within the container can be presented on a display, which may optionally be local to the container or at a centralized location. The determination may accommodate varying volume of the container depending on whether it is open or closed. Further inputs may adjust for variations in sensor operation depending on environmental factors such as temperature and altitude.

  • Publication number: 20030208764
    Abstract: An aircraft data management system provides a passenger seated on the aircraft with a number of entertainment and productivity enhancing options. Such options include, without limitation, video, audio, internet, airplane systems data and power. Located proximate to each seat group is an integrated seat box that includes a network interface card that identifies a requesting passenger for proper directing of the required data and/or power from devices that interface with a network controller back to the requesting passenger. Both on-aircraft and off-aircraft devices may be accessed by the system. While particularly drawn to aircraft, the data management system is also applicable to other venues have identifiable seating locations such as buses, passenger ships, hotels and auditoriums.
