  • Patent number: 11413628
    Abstract: An electrostatic air cleaning device comprises a particle charging section, a particle precipitation section, a current sensor for measuring an electric current flowing through electrode plates of the precipitation section and a relative humidity sensor. The voltage applied to the electrode plates and the air flow through the device are controlled in dependence on the measured current flowing through the electrode plates. In this way, control is provided to prevent excessive electric leakage currents inside the precipitation section, that may lead to a hazard, and to optimize the energy efficiency of the cleaning device in relation to its cleaning performance. The relative humidity information also enables diagnosis of the cause of the high leakage current and the status of the precipitation section concerning the amount of precipitated particles therein.

  • Patent number: 11419014
    Abstract: A device (110) arranged for wireless communication (130) has a processor (112) to execute a handover sequence to establish a new connection with a further device (120). A handover request message has a protocol indication indicating one or more alternative communication protocols that are supported by the requester and a channel indication indicating at least one channel to be used for a new connection. Upon receiving a first handover request message including an initial protocol indication and an initial channel indication, it is determined whether the new connection is to be established based on the initial protocol indication and via a selected channel based on the initial channel indication. If not so, the processor determines a second protocol indication and a second channel indication indicating at least one further channel to be used for the new connection and sends a second handover request message. Effectively the role of handover requester and handover selector are switched.

  • Patent number: 11413475
    Abstract: A therapy planning system (10) includes at least one processor (74, 72) programmed to receive an initial elasticity image of the target generated prior to execution of a fraction of a treatment plan for the target. The target is delineated in the initial elasticity image to segment the initial elasticity image. One or more elasticity images of the target generated during and/or after execution of the fraction are received and delineated to segment the elasticity images. The segmentation of the initial elasticity image is compared against the segmentations of the additional elasticity images to identify motion of the target and/or changes of the target. Based on the comparison, the treatment plan is updated and/or execution of the fraction is controlled.
