  • Publication number: 20240168542
    Abstract: Examples of augmented reality (AR) environment control advantageously employ multi-factor intention determination and include: performing a multi-factor intention determination for summoning a control object (e.g., a menu, a keyboard, or an input panel) using a set of indications in an AR environment, the set of indications comprising a plurality of indications (e.g., two or more of a palm-facing gesture, an eye gaze, a head gaze, and a finger position simultaneously); and based on at least the set of indications indicating a summoning request by a user, displaying the control object in a position proximate to the user in the AR environment (e.g., docked to a hand of the user). Some examples continue displaying the control object while at least one indication remains, and continue displaying the control object during a timer period if one of the indications is lost.

  • Patent number: 11990905
    Abstract: In a general aspect, a quantum logic gate is performed in a quantum computing system. In some cases, a pair of qubits are defined in a quantum processor; the pair of qubits can include a first qubit defined by a first qubit device in the quantum processor and a second qubit defined by a tunable qubit device in the quantum processor. A quantum logic gate can be applied to the pair of qubits by communicating a control signal to a control line coupled to the tunable qubit device. The control signal can be configured to modulate a transition frequency of the tunable qubit device at a modulation frequency, and the modulation frequency can be determined based on a transition frequency of the first qubit device.

  • Patent number: 11975943
    Abstract: In a handrail including a carcass, a stretch inhibitor within the carcass, and a sliding layer bonded to the carcass, at least a portion of the carcass has a gas phase dispersed in a solid polymer matrix. The gas phase can reduce a density of the carcass by at least 5% or 10%, or about 15%, as compared to a density of the polymer matrix. The carcass can have a generally uniform distribution of gas bubbles in the polymer matrix, which can define a generally closed cell structure in the polymer matrix. The gas phase can be formed of particles of a syntactic foam dispersed in the polymer matrix. The handrail can further include a cover. The carcass and the cover can be formed of thermoplastic materials, and the cover can represent between 10 and 30% of the overall TPU required for the handrail.

  • Publication number: 20240129834
    Abstract: A mm wave radio communication mesh network comprises a wireless node apparatus comprising a plurality of wireless modems (103) and a configuration controller (307) arranged to perform a node configuration arranged to configure the wireless modems (103) as access point wireless modems or non-access point wireless modems. The configuration controller (307) controls a set of wireless modems to scan for access point beacons and determines a first wireless modem that has detected an access point beacon from a first target access point wireless modem. It then configures the first wireless modem as a non-access point wireless modem and controls it to connect to the first target access point modem. If the connection is successful, the configuration controller (307) proceeds to configure another wireless modem as an access point wireless modem.

  • Patent number: 11961172
    Abstract: A system and method for object monitoring, detection, and segmentation in electro-optical (EO) satellite imagery data comprising an image processing engine configured to prepare EO data for analysis by an inference engine which utilizes one or more trained models to perform object detection or image segmentation. The workflow begins with ingesting satellite data, followed by de-hazing to remove atmospheric interference. Image enhancement improves resolution and geo-registration ensures precise spatial alignment. The processed image is then fed into a machine learning-based object detection or image segmentation network, trained to identify specific objects of interest. This integrated approach leverages advanced technologies to extract actionable insights from satellite data, enabling efficient and precise object monitoring, detection, and segmentation.

  • Patent number: 11935205
    Abstract: An augmented reality (AR) display device can display a virtual assistant character that interacts with the user of the AR device. The virtual assistant may be represented by a robot (or other) avatar that assists the user with contextual objects and suggestions depending on what virtual content the user is interacting with. Animated images may be displayed above the robot's head to display its intents to the user. For example, the robot can run up to a menu and suggest an action and show the animated images. The robot can materialize virtual objects that appear on its hands. The user can remove such an object from the robot's hands and place it in the environment. If the user does not interact with the object, the robot can dematerialize it. The robot can rotate its head to keep looking at the user and/or an object that the user has picked up.

  • Publication number: 20240081963
    Abstract: The flossing device includes a head unit, a handle, and a neck that is coupled to the head unit at one end and to the handle at an opposite end. The flossing device provides a horizontal vibrational movement for flossing. The handle of the flossing device includes a drive motor and a drive mechanism that transfers drive motor rotation into a horizontal left-right displacement of the head unit to generate the horizontal vibrational movement of the floss. The horizontal vibration provides more efficient and effective flossing. The drive mechanism includes a cam and an eccentric collar that generates horizontal left-right displacement as the cam rotates. The drive mechanism also includes an elongated shaft with a head adapter to secure the neck to the head unit; a sidewall spacer surrounding a portion of the elongated shaft to limit the horizontal left-right displacement; and an eccentric collar that mates with the drive motor to generate the horizontal vibrational movement of the head unit.
