  • Publication number: 20220114894
    Abstract: A system for tracking a fleet of vehicles and analyzing a driver associated with the fleet of vehicles. The system includes a monitoring engine for receiving information from a vehicle-tracking device associated with a vehicle of the fleet. A mapping engine displays, to a user, an icon indicative of an incident on a map. A video repository engine receives video data from a video camera associated with the vehicle and associates an incident video with the icon. A driver analysis engine obtains the incident information associated with a plurality of drivers and analyzes the incident information associated with the driver to generate a driver profile. The driver analysis engine compares the driver with corresponding drivers in the same and other fleets.

  • Publication number: 20210256344
    Abstract: A video collection system collects and sends metadata related to video data such that recording may be triggered and tagged. The video collection system utilizes a mobile broadband network (such as a cellular network) to send metadata, receive triggers, and perform other functions while the video collection system is in the field. The video collection system broadly comprises a plurality of video cameras and a video collection manager. The video cameras each include a mobile broadband modem or other wireless communication element for sending metadata messages. In some embodiments the mobile broadband modem may also send still images, audio data, and video data.

  • Patent number: 10989503
    Abstract: An electroshock system wirelessly delivers a shock to a subject. The electroshock system may include a launcher, a wireless projectile, a power source, and a wireless power transmitter. The launcher is configured to be grasped by a user. The wireless projectile is configured to detach from the launcher and adhere to a subject. The power source contributes power for the administration of a shock to the subject. The wireless power transmitter delivers said contributed power to the wireless projectile while the wireless projectile is detached from the launcher. The power source and the wireless transmitter may be co-located with the launcher, or may be separate (such as secured to a person or within a vehicle).

  • Patent number: 8976339
    Abstract: A system for determining the speed and position of objects comprises a beam source, a transmit reflection device, a beam receiver, a receive reflection device, and a controller. The beam source may generate a beam. The transmit reflection device may reflect the beam at the objects and may include a plurality of transmit faces with each transmit face oriented at a different angle and operable to reflect the beam at a different height. The beam receiver may detect the beam. The receive reflection device may include a plurality of receive faces with each receive face oriented at a different angle and operable to focus the beam reflected from objects at different heights onto the beam receiver. The controller may determine the position of the objects over time and calculate the speed of the objects based on a change in the position of the objects.
