Advanced Pedestrian Control System (OTT case 08-007)
Summary - The Advanced Pedestrian Control System (APCS) guides a visually impaired person across an intersection. The person carries an Advanced Pedestrian Assistant (APA) unit or cell phone containing the APA software, which then initializes the intersection crossing station containing the Advanced Pedestrian Controller (APC). The APC in turn communicates with the traffic controller.

Single-Slope Look-Ahead Ramp ADC (OTT case 08-022)
Summary - A technology that further advances the speed of the column-parallel concept for CMOS image sensors by using a device they call a single-slope look-ahead ramp (SSLAR) ADC. The SSLAR-ADC introduces code hopping, fall back, providing between 1.7x and 3.5x ADC speed improvement over current technology, all with less than 1.0% image quality degradation.
