Network Connection And Power Management In A Wireless Device: Improved Power Management for Cell Phones

Patent Application Excerpt

Media access control is delegated from a host device (for example a WiFi device) to a smart wireless communications module.  The host provides to the smart module a list of preferred networks. The smart module offloads from the host the processing required to scan for the preferred network(s); this allows rapid adaptation to a changing network environment.

Simulation Arena Entity Tracking System: Fine-Grained Visual Location Tracking

Patent Application Excerpt

Video cameras locate players and objects within an arena. Each player and object has attached to it a light-emitting device which emits a unique light signature. The invention performs frame-to-frame analysis of the light sources to determine motion of players and objects in three dimensions.

Eye Scanner With Visor For Eye Distance Determination: Mechanical Improvement to Eye Scanner

Patent Application Excerpt

A hand-held iris scanner, used for identifying individuals, has a hinged visor. The visor can be folded and locked into an extended position. When open, the free-floating end provides a contoured surface against which a user places his or her forehead. This lets users automatically position their eyes within the field of view of the scanner optics, and at an optimum distance for focused imaging by the scanner.

Orientation and Location Calibration for Image Sensors: Self-Location Determination by Video Cameras via Optical Cues

Patent Application Excerpt

Video cameras and point sources of light determine the location and orientation of video cameras in an exercise arena. Accelerometers on the cameras determine their angular orientations. Measurements are also obtained of the distance from each camera to at least two known points of light. Camera angular orientation and distance information are combined to determine the position of each video camera.

Integrated Circuit With Modular Dynamic Power Optimization Architecture: Generic Method For Integrated Circuit Power Reduction

Patent Application Excerpt

Regulating power consumption in an integrated circuit (IC) via a modular design. The IC is designed so that distinct functional modules utilize only transistors with a common critical voltage level. The supply voltage for each module can then be lowered to the minimum necessary to let the transistors in the module operate. Fine-tuning the voltages supplied to specific modules reduces power consumption.

Identification and Linking of Related Customer Files in a Large Business Database: Improved Organization of Internal Corporate Data

Patent Application Excerpt

In a large enterprise which maintains multiple accounts for many different business customers, multiple, diverse accounts may all be associated with a single location of a single, common business customer. A computer program correctly links the diverse accounts so their association with the single customer is readily apparent. Additionally, hierarchical linkages are created between accounts associated with multiple locations of the common business.

Implantable Biometric Leads and Cables For Same: Improved, Reduced-Breakage Wiring for Pacemakers

Patent Application

Implantable electric cables (used with pacemakers) provide for optimized mechanical and electrical properties. The conducting filaments within the cable have novel oval cross-sections. Using oval filaments increases the contact surface between adjacent filaments, broadly distributing the pressure between filaments and reducing contact fatigue. The oval cross-sections also increase conductivity.

System and Method of Dynamic Power Management: Software-Based Power Management for Ethernet Switches

Patent Application Excerpt

A power supply (PSE) supplies power to communications devices. The PSE monitors the power consumed by the devices, and dynamically determines the minimum power which can be allocated to each device. When additional power is available, the PSE preferentially allocates power to devices which have higher priority.
