  • Patent number: 10901789
    Abstract: A system and method of registering one or more objects in a container of a multi-threaded computing system. A method includes prefixing, to each object of the one or more objects, an object header having a version counter with an initial version count of zero. The method further includes for each object to be allocated to a thread of the multi-threaded computing system, allocating an object frame associated with each allocated object to the thread while maintaining the object header. The method further includes constructing each allocated object in the object frame after the object header, and initializing the object header of each allocated object by executing a store/store memory barrier and incrementing the version counter by a count of one to mark the associated allocated object as valid.

  • Patent number: 10899331
    Abstract: A hydraulic actuator for supplying a hydraulic brake pressure to service brakes of a vehicle includes an actuator cylinder including a piston. A hydraulic working pressure of a brake fluid can be set in accordance with a position of the piston. The brake fluid is supplied from a hydraulic reservoir assigned to the hydraulic cylinder, and the hydraulic working pressure prevails in a working space of the actuator cylinder and can be output via an actuator output port on the actuator cylinder in order to supply a hydraulic brake pressure in accordance with the hydraulic working pressure. The hydraulic actuator further includes an electrically controllable motor. A rotary motion brought about by the electrically controllable motor can be converted by a conversion mechanism into a translational motion of the piston parallel to a longitudinal direction thus enabling a hydraulic brake pressure to be supplied by electric control of the motor.
