  • Publication number: 20190288451
    Abstract: A wiring-harness includes an electrical-connector and a staging-device. The staging-device has a cavity defining a flexible-member in compressive contact with the electrical-connector. The flexible-member is configured to removably retain the electrical-connector within the cavity. The cavity locates the electrical-connector in a predetermined-position within the staging-device, such that the electrical-connector is presented to an assembler in the predetermined-position. The staging-device is particularly useful in automated, i.e. robotic, installation of the wiring-harness.

  • Patent number: 10398335
    Abstract: Bridge connectors employing flexible planar bodies having signal pathways coupling control devices with biometric sensors are disclosed. Sensors are placed in contact with a patient to detect a health condition and generate an output signal based on the health condition. A control device is linked to the sensors to receive the output signal for collection, analysis, storage, display, and/or subsequent transfer. A bridge connector includes a planar body with predetermined flexibility and signal pathways extending between data ports. By removably coupling the bridge connector to the control device and the sensors secured to the patient, the control device may be physically supported by the patient with minimal discomfort and low-cost biometric sensors may be used. In this manner, sensor replacement costs are reduced and the useful lives of the sensors can be maximized as the designed flexibility of the bridge connector facilitates removable coupling with the biometric sensors.

  • Patent number: 10402772
    Abstract: Electronic components may be integrated in objects used by the trucking industry, such as truck, tractor trailer, cargo, and loading bay. These objects may then communicate with each other and with a gateway device to transmit or receive data or commands. The gateway may be configured to attach to the truck, such as by securing to the truck frame or securing to an interior of the truck cab. The gateway may couple to one or more input devices, and receive sensor data through the one or more input devices. The gateway may execute steps that allow the gateway to perform geofencing to prevent conflict between cargo in the vehicle and cargo in another vehicle or in areas of a loading bay.

  • Patent number: 10346140
    Abstract: A method for model-based design of safety-critical software is disclosed. The method includes receiving natural-language software requirements, developing a specification model by implementing either semantic modeling or graphical modeling, applying formal requirements analysis to the specification model, auto generating requirements based and robustness test cases from the specification model, developing a design model based on the specification model, applying test cases to the design model, auto-generating source code using the design model, verifying the source code using both test cases and static analysis technology, and compiling executable object code from the verified source code. If a result of the analysis of the software specification or design models is not satisfactory then adjusting the specification or design model to correct any inconsistency, and repeating applying the analysis and test cases.

  • Publication number: 20190167909
    Abstract: A medication injector apparatus such as an injection pen. The injection pen includes a resettable, cartridge plunger drive assembly including an axially floating nut, a cartridge plunger engaging screw, and a drive clutch movable with the nut and which when rotated causes the screw to screw through the nut. When a cartridge assembly is mounted to the pen base, the floating nut and drive clutch are shifted proximally such that the drive clutch is in torque transmitting engagement with a rotatable drive member of the pen, such that rotation of that drive member results in drive screw advancement through the nut in the distal direction. When the cartridge assembly is not mounted to the pen base, the floating nut and drive clutch are biased distally to disengage the drive clutch from torque transmitting engagement with the rotatable drive member and to thereby allow the drive screw to be reset proximally through the nut to a position more retracted within the pen base.

  • Publication number: 20190108452
    Abstract: A method for knowledge management using concept rules includes receiving event data corresponding to an industrial application and generating at least one inference concept based on the event data. The method also includes obtaining a semantic model having a plurality of inference concepts, a plurality of relationships among the plurality of inference concepts, and a plurality of concept rules representative of domain knowledge. The plurality of concept rules is authored using the plurality of inference concepts and the plurality of relationships. Furthermore, the method includes processing the at least one inference concept based on the semantic model to generate inferential data. The inferential data is representative of an inference corresponding to the event data. In addition, the method includes controlling the industrial application based on the inferential data.
