    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system, and program includes a behavior processing system for capturing a three-dimensional movement of a monitored user within a particular environment monitored by a supervising user, wherein the three-dimensional movement is determined by using at least one image capture device aimed at the monitored user. The behavior processing system identifies a three-dimensional object properties stream using the captured movement. The behavior processing system identifies a particular defined adverse behavior of the monitored user represented by the three-dimensional object properties stream by comparing the identified three-dimensional object properties stream with multiple adverse behavior definitions.

  • Patent number: 8588464
    Abstract: An object-enabled navigation system assists a vision-impaired user in navigating an environment. The system captures 3D movement of a moving object within the environment, wherein the three-dimensional movement is determined using at least one image capture device aimed at the moving object. The system predicts a mobile path of the visually-impaired user. The system determines whether the movement of the moving object will intersect with the mobile path of the vision-impaired user and informs the vision-impaired user whether the movement of the moving object will intersect the mobile path of the vision-impaired user.

    Abstract: A survey controller receives response records from response processing systems, wherein the response records comprise a selection of response records each identifying a separate response of at least one consumer to a particular stimulus within a consumer environment detected from a three-dimensional movement of the at least one consumer captured within the consumer environment. The survey controller stores response records in a response database. The survey controller calculates, from the selection of response records stored in the response database, statistics associated with the particular stimulus within the consumer environment.

  • Patent number: 8295542
    Abstract: A response system captures a three-dimensional movement of the consumer within a consumer environment, wherein the three-dimensional movement is determined using at least one image capture device aimed at the consumer. The response system identifies at least one behavior of the consumer in response to at least one stimulus within the consumer environment from a three-dimensional object properties stream of the captured movement. The response system detects whether the at least one behavior of the consumer indicates a type of response to the at least one stimulus requiring adjustment of the consumer environment. Responsive to detecting that the behavior of the consumer indicates a type of response to the at least one stimulus requiring adjustment of the consumer environment, the response system generates a control signal to trigger at least one change of the at least one stimulus within the consumer environment.

  • Patent number: 7971156
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system, and program product comprises a gesture processing system for capturing a three-dimensional movement of a user, wherein the three-dimensional movement is determined using at least one stereoscopic image device aimed at the user to identify and track at least one particular three-dimensional movement of the user. The gesture processing system predicts at least one defined movement within the captured three-dimensional movement matching at least one gesture definition of at least one gesture type from among a plurality of gesture definitions. A resource control system receives a request to access a resource based on the predicted at least one gesture type. The resource control system only allows user access to the resource by matching the predicted at least one gesture type with at least one required gesture type.

  • Patent number: 7840031
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system, and program product includes a movement processing system for capturing a first three-dimensional movement of a user and capturing at least another three-dimensional movement of the user, wherein the three-dimensional movement is determined using at the at least one image capture device aimed at the body of the user. A projected movement system predicts a movement baseline based on the first three-dimensional movement of the user and predicts at least one subsequent movement range based on the at least another three-dimensional movement of the user. Based on a comparison of the movement baseline with the at least one subsequent movement, the projected movement systems predicts a projected movement of a user for tracking changes in a range of body movement of a user.

  • Patent number: 7792328
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system, and program product includes a behavior processing system for capturing a three-dimensional movement of an operator of a vehicle, wherein the three-dimensional movement is determined by using at least one image capture device aimed at the operator, and identifying at least one behavior of the operator from the captured three-dimensional movement. An operator monitoring system for a vehicle determines whether the predicted behavior and the current operational state of the vehicle indicate unsafe operation of the vehicle and the operator monitoring system notifies the operator when unsafe operator of the vehicle is indicated by the operator's behavior for the current operational state of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 7725547
    Abstract: A gesture-enabled electronic communication system informs users of gestures made by other users participating in a communication session. The system captures a three-dimensional movement of a first user from among the multiple users participating in an electronic communication session, wherein the three-dimensional movement is determined using at least one image capture device aimed at the first user. The system identifies a three-dimensional object properties stream using the captured movement and then identifies a particular electronic communication gesture representing the three-dimensional object properties stream by comparing the identified three-dimensional object properties stream with multiple electronic communication gesture definitions.
