  • Publication number: 20190154401
    Abstract: A method for calculation of real time shooting instructions by calibrating data extracted from images of a shooting target and outputs of an inertial measurement unit (IMU) mounted on the body of a shooter. The method comprises calculating a result of a shooting event, calculating at least one physiological parameter of the shooter during a period preceding the shooting event according to an analysis of outputs of the IMU which is supported by at least one wearable device worn by the shooter, calculating shooting parameter by correlating between the at least one physiological parameter and the result, and instructing a presentation of shooting instructions calculated based on additional outputs of the IMU and the shooting parameter on a display of the mobile device or by a presentation unit of the at least one wearable device before an additional shooting event is detected.

  • Patent number: 9874949
    Abstract: A signal emitting stylus for operation with a digitizer system includes a resonant circuit including a first capacitor and an inductor, the circuit operative to alternate between receiving a wirelessly transmitted first signal and generating electrical field; a controller and a power source. The controller operates the resonant circuit in a receive mode for receiving the first signal, decodes the received first signal and switches operation of the resonant circuit to a transmit mode for generating the electrical field and coupling the electrical field to a digitizer system in response to detecting the first signal. The power source powers generation of the electrical field.
