  • Patent number: 10439908
    Abstract: System and techniques are described for time correlated playback of traffic patters between nodes in a network. Node statistics of data transfers between nodes are received in a control point, wherein the node statistics include a time stamp (tn) according to time at the control point of when a request statistics message was sent to each node, a node timestamp (ta) according to time at each node of when the message was received in the node, and a first delta between tn and ta that is used to determine a second delta which adjusts the node statistics. The node statistics adjusted according to the second delta are stored in a statistics database at the control point. A time stepping mechanism is used to repeatedly access the node statistics from the statistics database at a predetermined rate for playback presentation beginning from a specified start time to a specified end time.

  • Patent number: 10401176
    Abstract: A method of determining the real time state of a machine includes receiving acceleration and angular rate of motion measurements from IMU's mounted on components of a machine. Fusing signals received from the IMU's with separate Kalman filter modules by combining an acceleration measurement and an angular rate of motion measurement from each IMU to estimate an output joint angle for the component on which the IMU is mounted. Estimated and measured values of the output joint angle for each component are combined, a kinematic equation is solved to determine a real time value for at least one of position, velocity, and acceleration of the component at successive timesteps, and the determined real time values are applied to control movement of each component.

  • Publication number: 20190248134
    Abstract: A printhead includes an address line, data lines, a fire pulse line, and a plurality of primitives, each primitive corresponding to a different data line and including a plurality of activation devices, each activation device corresponding to a different address of a set of addresses. A buffer receives data packets, each data packet including address data representative of an address of the set of addresses and print data for each primitive corresponding to the address. For each data packet, the buffer directs the address data to address logic and places the print data on the respective data line, and the address logic encodes the address represented by the address data onto the address line. For each primitive, the activation device corresponding to the address on the address bus activates a corresponding primitive function based on the corresponding print data when a fire pulse is present on the fire pulse line.

  • Patent number: 10348571
    Abstract: Techniques are described which apply a method for including a routing stack to provide a timely way to dynamically learn about route changes for an end to end system in the context of an adaptive private network (APN). By allowing learned routes to be assigned different services based on filtering rules, the APN can efficiently manage traffic through the WAN. Techniques for learning routes and to advertise the learned routes in different networks are also described. Upon an APN route change being detected in the APN, a route table is updated with the APN route change, wherein the route table contains routes in a local area network (LAN) and routes in a wide area network (WAN). The APN route change is selected from the route table and configured to a protocol for the LAN. The selected APN route change is advertised in the protocol to local routers in the LAN.

  • Publication number: 20190175169
    Abstract: Suture passer systems for tissue suspension and tissue compression, and more particularly for tongue suspension, are described. The system can include at least a first elongate tubular body or shaft, a needle having a lateral bias carried by the elongate body, and a retrieval element operably connected to the elongate tubular body. The needle can have a substantially straight configuration when located within the elongate tubular body, and be configured to exit an opening at or near a distal end of the elongate tubular body and assume a laterally biased or curved shape to form a path through tissue. The needle is configured to carry a suture. The retrieval element can be configured to retrieve the suture carried by the needle after the needle has formed a curved or otherwise angled path through tissue. The system can also include one or more bone anchors to secure the suture loops. Methods of placing one or more suture loops into tissue, such as the base of the tongue, are also described.

  • Patent number: 10320635
    Abstract: System and techniques are described which provide a method for time correlated monitoring of nodes in a network. A statistics request message is sent from a centralized control point to a node in a network having a plurality of nodes, wherein the statistics request message contains a centralized control point time stamp tn of when the message was sent. The statistics request message is received at the node which records a node timestamp ta when the message was received in the node. Node statistics are converted to system time at the centralized control point according to a first delta between tn and ta to generate adjusted node statistics. A second delta is determined at the centralized control point which is applied to the adjusted node statistics to provide consistent system time information for feedback or presentation through a network attached user interface.
