*3M INNOVATIVE PROPERTIESUS8001838B2A sensing device obtains range-related data—such as Doppler data or pulse time-of-flight data—from a sports projectile during flight. The time course of the range-related data is employed, in light of predictable characteristics of the projectile trajectory, to determine and output an accurate determination of the projectile speed for one or more points of interest in its flight. Such determination of speed may, for instance, be the speed at the time of projectile release, even though range-related data is gathered later in the flight, when the projectile is traveling neither so fast, nor straight at the sensor. Such sensing device may employ inexpensive short-range acoustic Doppler, and be incorporated into a target device that automatically displays to a pitcher-in-training the speed and ball/strike condition of each pitch.Electronic pitching trainer and method for determining the true speed of a sports projectile3008/23/201108/07/200708/05/200805/03/2029

*ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES AMDUS8554608B1An embodiment of the disclosed technology is an in-taxi customer selection system. The selection system is placed in a plurality of taxis in the form of a device which includes a touch-screen display map of a surrounding location of each taxi. An indicator of at least one future rider desiring a taxi is exhibited anonymously on each display map. The indicator exhibits only a location, and thus, lacks destination data or information about the potential rider other than his or her location of pickup. In this manner, all picked up riders are anonymous to the driver and discrimination against the rider is actually less than in the prior art, since the appearance of the rider cannot be judged before the ride is accepted. Sensors within the touch-screen display receive a selection of an indicator on one of the display maps from a driver of one of the taxis using this system. The selected indicator is then removed from all other display maps, if shown on any at the time, and the driver is sent a confirmation of said selection. In this manner, only drivers actively looking for rides see who is looking, and such drivers only see riders who are waiting for a taxi ride.Driver controlled automated taxi service and devices3010/08/201304/17/201003/23/201102/16/2032

*AGGARWAL ABHINAVUS8820074B2The system and method to generate electricity from solar energy by multi-tired solar lenses powering a steam-turbine. An insulated container mounted with convex-lenses emits steam to impact turbine blades. Over the greater solar catchment's area in the space around, larger convex lenses gather solar energy and focus beam to smaller convex lenses mounted on the container. There are various levels of lens placement acting as energy amplifiers to super-heat water inside the container. The steam passes through a directed jet nozzle, releasing to impact the turbine blades. A generator coupled to turbine shaft produces electricity. The steam, upon utilization and condensation is recycled, while still hot, to the container. On a small scale, it can be used as a supplementary power source to solar panels. Larger turbines can be placed anywhere, including offshore platforms, to tap large catchments area using multi-layered hierarchy of convex lenses.System and method to generate environment-friendly power by tapping solar energy3009/02/201403/11/200603/11/200606/23/2026

The method includes storing a digital elevation model (DEM) and associated data including locations of communication networks, updating the locations of communication networks in the associated data via a wireless transceiver, and storing position information determined by a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver. The method includes detecting a predetermined condition using electronic sensors, determining whether the UAV is within a communications range of any communication network via the wireless transceiver, and determining a path to a communication network using the DEM and the associated data. The method also includes causing the UAV to become airborne and fly along the path, and transmitting a distress message via the wireless transceiver to the communication network, the distress message including position information corresponding to a location where the UAV detected the predetermined condition.Emergency unmanned aerial vehicle and method for deploying an unmanned aerial vehicle3012/05/201702/09/201602/09/201605/14/2036
*ALRASHID AHMAD ABDULAZIZUS9595192B1The traffic violation detection system includes a series of smart road studs embedded in the roadway acting as sensors for vehicles moving in the prohibited manner. The road studs have a refraction surface on their upper surfaces for reflecting light to a solar panel, or may have the solar panel without the refraction surface. When the road studs initially sense a violating moving vehicle, an alert is sounded to warn the driver. If the vehicle continues to move in violation, a camera system is activated. The camera system includes solar panels, a camera lens, a light emitting flash mechanism, a distance IR sensor, and controls, all positioned on top of a vertically movable, hydraulic cylinder. The camera assembly is normally hidden underground but will rise to record images when activated by the road stud system. The images are sent to a central monitoring unit in a traffic monitoring building.Traffic violation detection system3003/14/201704/14/201604/14/201604/14/2036
*ALTOMARE MIKEUS10399045B2A litter processing system is provided implementing one or more robotic vehicles to process livestock litter, detect conditions of the litter with a plurality of sensors, and treat the litter based upon data collected by the sensors. The vehicles may include processors and software that control vehicle tasks. The vehicle's onboard software may be controlled by a server having an instance of the software thereby controlling operation of the vehicles and collecting sensor data from the vehicles via a wireless network.Robotic litter processing system3009/03/201904/09/201604/06/201709/26/2037
