  • Patent number: 9445252
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for providing a service at an incident scene is provided herein. During operation, a device will enter a geographic area (e.g., an incident scene), join a local-area network (LAN), and determine what services are presently being offered by other devices on the LAN. From a list of services deployed on the device, a determination is then made as to what services the device will run, and those services are then offered to all devices on the LAN.

  • Patent number: 8837906
    Abstract: A video tagging method, a video analytics method, and a Computer Assisted Dispatch (CAD) system use incident reports for video tagging and searching. A CAD system is integrated with field-based video surveillance systems to aid in searching video content and subsequent tagging of the video content. The systems and methods can include extracting keywords from a CAD incident report and creating a small, focused, and incident-specific dictionary on which to perform video searching in real-time. The small, focused, and incident-specific dictionary increases tagging accuracy and reduces tagging processing time in the context of video analytics. Further, a multi-pass approach in real-time continually updates and disseminates to video cameras of interest the small, focused, and incident-specific dictionary as the CAD incident report is updated and as the incident of interest plays out.

  • Patent number: 7415601
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for the elimination of prolog and epilog instructions in a vector processor. To eliminate the prolog, a functional unit of the vector processor has at least one input for receiving an input data value tagged with a data validity tag and an output for outputting an intermediate result tagged with a data validity tag. The data validity tags indicate the validity of the data. Before a loop is executed, the data validity tags are set to indicate that the associated data values are invalid. During execution of the loop body a functional unit checks the validity of input data. If all of the input data values are valid the functional operation is performed, the corresponding data validity tag set to indicate that the result is valid. If any of the input data values is invalid, the data validity tag of the result is set to indicate that the result is invalid. To eliminate the epilog, an iteration counter is associated with each sink unit of the vector processor.
