*** University of Florida Research Foundation Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 14 -- The University of Florida Research Foundation, Gainesville, Fla., has been assigned a patent (8,374,696) developed by Justin C. Sanchez, Newberry, Fla., and Paul R. Camey, Gainesville, Fla., for a "closed-loop micro-control system for predicting and preventing epileptic seizures." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The invention provides a micro-control neuroprosthetic device and methods for predicting and controlling epileptic neuronal activity. The device includes a detection system that detects and collects electrophysiological information comprising action potentials from single neurons and ensembles of neurons in a neural structure such as an epileptogenic region of the brain in a subject. An analysis system included in the neuroprosthetic device evaluates the electrophysiological information and performs a real-time extraction of neuron firing features from which the system determines when stimulus intervention is required. The neuroprosthetic device further comprises a stimulation intervention system that provides stimulus output signals having a desired stimulation frequency and stimulation intensity directly to the neural structure in which abnormal neuronal activity is detected. The analysis system further analyzes collected electrophysiological information during or following stimulus intervention to assess the effects of the stimulation intervention and to provide outputs to maintain or modify the stimulation intervention." The patent application was filed on Sept. 13, 2006 (11/520,222).

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems (100) and methods (400) for selectively controlling access to multiple data streams which are communicated using a shared frequency spectrum and shared spreading codes. The methods involve generating a first product signal (FPS) by spreading first symbols of a first amplitude modulated (AM) signal using a first spreading code (SC). The methods also involve generating a second product signal (SPS) by spreading second symbols of a complimentary AM signal using a second SC. The FPS (124) and SPS 126 are combined to form a protected data communication signal (PDCS) including first data recoverable by a receiver (106). A global data communication signal (GDCS) is combined with PDCS (128) to form an output signal (140) having a spread spectrum format. The GDCS is generated using a digital modulation process and includes second data recoverable by a plurality of receivers (106, 108)." The patent application was filed on July 1, 2009 (12/496,170). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,74,217.PN.&OS=PN/83,74,217&RS=PN/83,74,217 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

The server receives second device identifier information from a first wireless device using a wide area wireless network the second device identifier information was previously provided to the first wireless device via short range wireless communication. The server then uses the second device identifier information to determine additional information concerning an entity or object located in proximity to the second device, and then delivers information to the first wireless device or the second wireless device based at least in part upon the second device identifier and feedback ratings relevant to an entity associated with either the first wireless device or the second device identifier." The patent application was filed on Aug. 18, 2011 (13/212,766). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,374,592.PN.&OS=PN/8,374,592&RS=PN/8,374,592 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Motorola Solutions Assigned Patent for Method for Utilizing an Adaptive Conventional Scanning Algorithm in a Two-way Radio Transceiver ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 14 -- Motorola Solutions, Schaumburg, Ill., has been assigned a patent (8,374,603) developed by David E. Klein, Davie, Fla., and Andrew J. Janecek, Tamarac, Fla., for a "method for utilizing an adaptive conventional scanning algorithm in a two-way radio transceiver." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method for adaptive conventional scanning in a two-way radio transceiver (300) includes initiating an unweighted scan behavior (301) from a scanning list and then determining if qualified activity is present on a scanned channel (303) for a predetermined number of scan cycles. Once qualified activity is detected, the scanned channel is then marked (307) as having high activity. The transceiver then switches (309) to a weighted scan behavior such that the marked channel will be checked at a higher periodic rate than an unmarked channel. Once qualified activity is detected on the marked channel for a predetermined number of cycles (311) the channel is unmarked (315) and the weighted nature of the scan is removed such that normal scanning activity is resumed (317). The marking process increases the overall scanning rate enhancing the overall performance of the scan for all channels." The patent application was filed on April 28, 2006 (11/380,904). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,374,603.PN.&OS=PN/8,374,603&RS=PN/8,374,603 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
