LOS ANGELES, March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage, a division of ICAP plc and the world's largest intellectual property brokerage firm and organizer of ICAP Ocean Tomo Auctions, is offering for auction a patented system of emergency exit signage that provides critical evacuation information during emergencies from Maurice Bligh. The lot will be included in the 15th ICAP Ocean Tomo IP Auction on March 29, 2012, at Terranea Resort near Los Angeles, California.
Key Characteristics & Benefits This patent portfolio discloses a safety system to guide people swiftly, safely, and always away from the dangers that occur during emergencies in multi-level buildings or other structures above and below ground, aboard ships, oil-rigs, etc.
This is achieved by intelligent microprocessors within a structure-wide network of sensors and LED illuminated units laid in the center of floors and walkways.
The LED units form a continuous, narrow strip or 'information highway' at our feet.
Language independent symbols, and/or additional helpful text messages (in any pre-determined language or combination of languages) are displayed to steer evacuees along safe assessed routes leading to their nearest and safest assessed designated exits. Simply, it's green for go and red for stop, danger, or don't go.
The disclosed system can track hazardous spreading elements like fire, smoke, toxic gases and radiation; and the system automatically adjusts the way-out routes as circumstances change.
Applications include bomb-scare scenarios, routine drills and directions.
The system includes downloadable, real-time data for ingoing fire and rescue crews.
