  • Patent number: 10347006
    Abstract: A wheel alignment system includes a side-to-side reference including an active reference pod and a passive reference pod disposed on opposite sides of the vehicle. The active reference pod includes a reference image sensor fixedly attached to a reference target, for mounting on a first side of the vehicle such that the reference image sensor produces image data including a perspective representation of the passive reference pod disposed on a second/opposite side of the vehicle. In operation, alignment cameras on the opposite sides of the vehicle capture perspective representations of targets mounted to vehicle wheels and of targets of the active and passive reference pods. A computer processes the image data to compute an alignment measurement of the vehicle based on a spatial relationship between the active reference pod and the passive reference pod determined according to the image data produced by the reference image sensor.

  • Patent number: 4407295
    Abstract: A miniature portable physiological parameter measuring system with interchangeable sensors. In a preferred embodiment, the system is incorporated into a wrist-worn device having the general configuration of a wristwatch. The device contains, in the upper right-hand quadrant, an outcropping on which a pulse sensor is located. In the lower left-hand quadrant of the device, when worn of the left hand, diagonally opposite from the sensor described above, there is positioned a tiny plug. When the plug is removed, an open area is displayed which allows for the introduction of a connector in the wrist device. On introduction of the connector into the side of the device, the permanent sensor housed within the wrist device is disconnected and the remote sensor commences inputting a signal into the wrist device.
