  • Patent number: 10782848
    Abstract: A method, system, apparatus, and/or device for interacting with a three dimensional interface. The method, system, apparatus, and/or device may include: generating a zone associated with a virtual object, wherein the zone includes a first space approximate to at least a portion of the object that is distinct from a second space occupied by the object; determine an uncertainty level of a sensor to identify an input in the zone; in response to the uncertainty level exceeding a first level, increasing a size of the zone, wherein the increased size of the zone increases a precision level of the sensor; and in response to the uncertainty level being below a second level, decreasing the size of the zone, wherein the decreased size of the zone decreases the precision level of the sensor.

  • Patent number: 10688595
    Abstract: A method of laser welding a workpiece stack-up (10) that includes at least two overlapping steel workpieces (12, 14) comprises directing a laser beam (40) at a top surface (26) of the workpiece stack-up to form a keyhole (56) surrounded by a molten steel weld pool (58). The laser beam is conveyed along a predefined weld pattern that includes one or more nonlinear inner weld paths (66) and an enclosed outer peripheral weld path (68) surrounding the one or more nonlinear inner weld paths. During conveyance of the laser beam along the one or more nonlinear inner weld paths, the keyhole fully penetrates through the workpiece stack-up from the top surface of the stack-up to the bottom surface (28) of the stack-up. The method produces weld joints between the steel workpieces that do not have an intentionally imposed gap formed between their faying surfaces.

  • Publication number: 20200074153
    Abstract: Comprehensive 2D learning images are collected for learning subjects. Standardized 2D gallery images of many gallery subjects are collected, one per gallery subject. A 2D query image of a query subject is collected, of arbitrary viewing aspect, illumination, etc. 3D learning models, 3D gallery models, and a 3D query model are determined from the learning, gallery, and query images. A transform is determined for the selected learning model and each gallery model that yields or approximates the query image. The transform is at least partly 3D, such as 3D illumination transfer or 3D orientation alignment. The transform is applied to each gallery model so that the transformed gallery models more closely resemble the query model. 2D transformed gallery images are produced from the transformed gallery models, and are compared against the 2D query image to identify whether the query subject is also any of the gallery subjects.

  • Patent number: 10566603
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an electrochemical cell includes transferring an anode semi-solid suspension to an anode compartment defined at least in part by an anode current collector and an separator spaced apart from the anode collector. The method also includes transferring a cathode semi-solid suspension to a cathode compartment defined at least in part by a cathode current collector and the separator spaced apart from the cathode collector. The transferring of the anode semi-solid suspension to the anode compartment and the cathode semi-solid to the cathode compartment is such that a difference between a minimum distance and a maximum distance between the anode current collector and the separator is maintained within a predetermined tolerance. The method includes sealing the anode compartment and the cathode compartment.

  • Publication number: 20190369839
    Abstract: In the method, a processor generates a three dimensional interface with at least one virtual object, defines a stimulus of the interface, and defines a response to the stimulus. The stimulus is an approach to the virtual object with a finger or other end-effector to within a threshold of the virtual object. When the stimulus is sensed, the response is executed, Stimuli may include touch, click, double click, peg, scale, and swipe gestures. The apparatus includes a processor that generates a three dimensional interface with at least one virtual object, and defines a stimulus for the virtual object and a response to the stimulus. A display outputs the interface and object. A camera or other sensor detects the stimulus, e.g. a gesture with a finger or other end-effector, whereupon the processor executes the response. The apparatus may be part of a head mounted display.

  • Publication number: 20190332626
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatuses to recognize actors during normal system operation. The method includes defining actor input such as hand gestures, executing and detecting input, and identifying salient features of the actor therein. A model is defined from salient features, and a data set of salient features and/or model are retained, and may be used to identify actors for other inputs. A command such as “unlock” may be executed in response to actor input. Parameters may be applied to further define where, when, how, etc. actor input is executed, such as defining a region for a gesture. The apparatus includes a processor and sensor, the processor defining actor input, identifying salient features, defining a model therefrom, and retaining a data set. A display may also be used to show actor input, a defined region, relevant information, and/or an environment. A stylus or other non-human actor may be used.
