  • Patent number: 10334221
    Abstract: The present application discloses methods, circuits, devices, systems and associated computer executable code for rendering one or more hybrid images including both two dimensional and three dimensional image information from an object or person. According to some embodiments, data from 2D image frame may be combined with a corresponding 3D image dataset to generate a hybrid image frame. Display parameters and/or relative coordinates of the 2D and/or 3D image data may be adjusted or altered across hybrid image frames.

  • Publication number: 20180335780
    Abstract: A personal watercraft auto-return system includes a user device having a rider location determination unit, a user interface, and a communication unit. The system also includes an autopilot unit that is positioned within a personal watercraft. The autopilot unit including a steering unit for controlling the steering the watercraft, and a controller having a processor and memory for controlling the engine and throttle controls of the watercraft. The controller selectively activates the steering unit, engine, and throttle of the personal watercraft to navigate to the location of the user device upon receiving a request from the user interface.

  • Patent number: 6794830
    Abstract: A plurality of spaced ceiling mounted fixtures or other controllable electrical appliances have radiation detectors mounted within each fixture and wired internally of the fixture to a dimming circuit or to a ballast. The radiation detectors have sensitivity over a wide angle and have elongated plastic radiation conduction rods which extend to or beyond the plane of the lens of the fixture to be located free of shadow effects of reflections of the fixture lens. A flexible end light fiber optics can be used in place of the acrylic rods. A narrow beam radiation transmitter selectively illuminates one of the rods or end light fiber optics without illuminating the others. The dimming circuits or ballasts within the fixtures can be further controlled by external dimmers, occupancy sensors, timeclocks, photosensors and other types of input devices. The radiation detector and ballast can occupy a common housing and share the same power supply and circuit board.
