|20140188308||UNMANNED VEHICLE CONTROLLER WITH INTERCHANGEABLE FUNCTION BRIDGE MODULES - Handheld, unmanned vehicle controllers including interchangeable function bridge modules attached to the grip handles of the controllers are described herein. Interchangeable function bridge modules can include, but are not limited to, a display screen module, a pushbutton module, and a keyboard module. An operator may quickly and easily swap modules, using different modules to perform various tasks.||07-03-2014|
|20140131523||ABOVE-THE-FLOOR RUDDER AND BRAKE CONTROL SYSTEM - A modular brake and rudder control system usable in an aircraft. The modular system mounts atop the flight deck floor without penetrating through the floor when the system is operatively connected to the aircraft's fly-by-wire brake and rudder systems. Pedal assemblies extending from the housing are rotatable and longitudinally moveable relative to the housing. A brake control system fully contained in the housing is connected to the pedal assemblies and provides a signal via an electrical connector to the fly-by-wire brake system upon rotation of the pedals. A rudder control system is fully contained in the housing and is operable independent of the brake control system. The rudder control system detects longitudinal motion of the pedal assemblies and provides a signal via an electrical connector to the fly-by-wire rudder system. The housing, the electrical connectors, the pedal assemblies, the brake control system and the rudder control system define a modular component installable and removable from the cockpit as a unit.||05-15-2014|
|20110303038||MULTI-AXIS PIVOT ASSEMBLY FOR CONTROL STICKS AND ASSOCIATED SYSTEMS AND METHODS - Multi-axis pivot assemblies for control sticks and associated systems and methods are disclosed herein. A multi-axis pivot assembly in accordance with an embodiment of the present technology can include, for example, an input shaft, a first axis output shaft coupled to the input shaft, and a second axis output shaft coupled to the input shaft via a series of linkages and pivoting joints. The first and second axis output shafts rotated about corresponding first and second fixed bearing sets to capture a first axis output and a second axis output. The series of linkages are configured to decouple first axis movement of the input shaft from second axis movement of the input shaft such that the second axis output is substantially independent of the first axis output.||12-15-2011|
|20090115404||HALL EFFECT METHODS AND SYSTEMS - A hall effect system in accordance with one embodiment is described herein. The hall effect system comprises a housing, an input element coupled to the housing, a magnetic element coupled to the input element and configured to have a detectable magnetic flux, a sensing element adjacent to the magnetic element, the sensing element being configured to sense the magnetic flux, and a processing element coupled to the sensing element and configured to determine a position of the magnetic element relative to the sensing element be determining changes in and/or the orientation of the magnetic flux upon movement of the interface element by a user.||05-07-2009|
