|20130314273||Wireless and Wireline Sensor Nodes, Micro-Radar, Networks and Systems - The following are disclosed and claimed: A micro-radar adapted to generate an antenna output of less than or equal to 10 milli-Watt (mW) through an antenna to an object and receive a Radio Frequency (RF) reflection off of said object, and adapted to respond to a first Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) output and a second DAC output. A wireless sensor node and/or a processor for use in said wireless sensor node. A wireline sensor node and/or a processor for use in said wireline sensor node configured operate said micro-radar by control of said first and said second DAC output. A second apparatus configured to receive an improved sensor report from at least two of the wireless sensor nodes. A processor for use with the second apparatus. A third apparatus adapted to respond to vibrations in pavement. Several integrated circuits and systems. Installation devices, servers and/or computer readable memories. Finite State Machines, computers, memories containing and/or using program systems and/or installation packages.||11-28-2013|
|20120173171||In-Pavement Wireless Vibration Sensor Nodes, Networks and Systems - Apparatus and methods are disclosed that may be configured to respond to vibrations in a pavement induced by the travel of a vehicle on the pavement. The apparatus may include vibration sensor nodes embedded in the pavement and systems using the response of the sensor nodes to generate vehicle parameters, weight estimates, pavement deflection estimates and vehicle classifications. From these and other data, traffic ticket, tariff and insurance messages about the vehicle may be generated. Processors and processor-units are disclosed. Delivery mechanisms to configure the processor units and entities controlling and/or benefiting from the deliveries are disclosed.||07-05-2012|
|20120026015||METHOD AND APPARATUS REPORTING A VEHICULAR SENSOR WAVEFORM IN A WIRELESS VEHICULAR SENSOR NETWORK - The invention includes using multiple wireless vehicular sensor nodes to wirelessly receive multiple, time-interleaved vehicular waveform reports from the nodes. Each vehicular waveform report approximates a raw vehicular sensor waveform observed by a magnetic sensor at the node based upon the presence of a vehicle. The vehicular waveform reports are products of this wirelessly receiving process. The invention includes apparatus supporting the above outlined process. The vehicular waveform reports may be time synchronized.||02-02-2012|
|20110221624||Apparatus and Method Using a Radar in a Wireless and/or Wireline Sensor Node and Operating Radar In the Ground to Detect and Count Vehicles in Roadway, Parking Lot and Airport Applications - A package, wireless sensor module, wireless sensor node and wireline sensor node are disclosed including a radar configured to embed beneath vehicles in pavements, walkways, parking lot floors and runways referred to herein as in ground usage. An access point interfacing to at least one of the sensors is disclosed to provide traffic reports, parking reports, landing counts, takeoff counts, aircraft traffic reports and/or accident reports based upon the sensor's messages regarding the radar and possibly magnetic sensor readings. A runway sensor network is disclosed of radar sensors embedded in lanes of at least one runway for estimating the landing count and/or takeoff count effect of aircraft.||09-15-2011|
|20110158331||Emulating Increased Sample Frequency in a Wireless Sensor Node and/or a Wireless Sensor Network - Apparatus and processors for wireless sensor nodes are disclosed emulating increasing the sampling frequency of the sensors of the wireless sensor nodes. Apparatus and processors are disclosed using the improved sensor readings to generate vehicle parameters for vehicles passing near one of the nodes, movement estimates and traffic ticket messages, any of which may be sent to other systems. Some of these embodiments may be used with and/or in the wireless sensor nodes and/or with or in an access point for the wireless sensor nodes. Installation devices and/or servers and/or computer readable memories are disclosed for delivering the operational configurations and/or installation packages and/or program systems to the various embodiments of the apparatus and/or processors.||06-30-2011|
|20100017104||METHOD AND APPARATUS MATCHING INCOMING TO OUTGOING VEHICLE SIGNATURES TO ESTIMATE ARTERIAL VEHICULAR MOVEMENT - A roadway information system is disclosed with components generating and using vehicle signatures for vehicles passing near sensor pods located on or near lanes. Means and/or processors for matching incoming and outgoing vehicle signatures are disclosed creating an in-out vehicle match table used to generate a vehicle movement estimate or its components including a travel time and/or vehicle count.||01-21-2010|
|20100017103||METHOD AND APPARATUS GENERATING ESTIMATES VEHICULAR MOVEMENT INVOLVING MULTIPLE INPUT-OUTPUT ROADWAY NODES - A roadway information system is disclosed with components generating and using vehicle signatures for vehicles passing near sensor pods located on or near lanes in a multiple input-output roadway node. Means and/or processors for matching incoming and outgoing vehicle signatures are disclosed creating an in-out vehicle match table used to generate a vehicle movement estimate or its components including a travel time and/or vehicle count that may be created and/or used in response to a match tally exceeding a threshold or the stimulation of a timing signal.||01-21-2010|
|20100017102||METHOD AND APPARATUS GENERATING AND/OR USING ESTIMATES OF ARTERIAL VEHICULAR MOVEMENT - A roadway information system is disclosed with components generating and using vehicle signatures for vehicles passing near sensor pods located on or near lanes. These components in turn are part of and/or communicate with means and/or processors for generating an/or using Vehicle Movement Estimates based upon the vehicle signatures. The VME are used to create traffic feedback that may be presented to programmable field devices that may present at least some of the traffic feedback to drivers of the vehicles, thereby optimizing the fuel usage and travel time of the roadway.||01-21-2010|
