  • Patent number: 11829742
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer-storage media, for container-based server environments. In some implementations, a server environment is provided using a plurality of containers that provide instances of different software modules. The plurality of containers includes a first container running a first software image of a particular software module. Various operations can be performed in response to determining that an updated software image is available for the particular software module. For example, execution is started for a second container that provides an instance of the updated software image. Incoming requests are to the second container while continuing to process, using the first container, one or more requests that were received before starting execution of the second container. In response to determining that a level of activity of the first container is below a threshold, the execution of the first container is stopped.

  • Publication number: 20230358643
    Abstract: Highly efficient and rapid filtration-based concentration devices, systems and methods are disclosed with sample fluidic lines and a filter packaged in a disposable tip which concentrate biological particles that are suspended in liquid from a dilute feed suspension. A sample concentrate or retentate suspension is retained while eliminating the separated fluid in a separate flow stream. The concentrate is then dispensed from the disposable tip in a set volume of elution fluid. Suspended biological particles include such materials as proteins/toxins, viruses, DNA, and/or bacteria in the size range of approximately 0.001 micron to 20 microns diameter. Concentration of these particles is advantageous for detection of target particles in a dilute suspension, because concentrating them into a small volume makes them easier to detect. A single-use pipette tip includes fluid ports for aspirating the sample and connecting to a concentrating unit.

  • Patent number: 11810365
    Abstract: Techniques for modeling the probability distribution of errors in perception systems are discussed herein. For example, techniques may include modeling error distribution for attributes such as position, size, pose, and velocity of objects detected in an environment, and training a mixture model to output specific error probability distributions based on input features such as object classification, distance to the object, and occlusion. The output of the trained model may be used to control the operation of a vehicle in an environment, generate simulations, perform collision probability analyses, and to mine log data to detect collision risks.

  • Publication number: 20230304906
    Abstract: Devices, systems and methods are disclosed which relate to using a wet foam elution method for removal of particles from a flat filter. Particles are captured from the atmosphere onto the flat filter. The flat filter is then placed into an extractor which passes a stream of wet foam through the flat filter. Expansion of the foam works to efficiently remove captured particles. The foam flows from the filter along with the captured particles into a sample container. Once in the sample container, the foam quickly breaks down leaving an analysis ready liquid sample.
