  • Patent number: 11446810
    Abstract: A robotic assistant comprises a plurality of sensors in a compact and unobtrusive form. One or more sensors may be emplaced upon a mast that may be selectively raised and lowered. The mast allows the robotic assistant to acquire images or other sensor data from a greater height, without substantially increasing the bulk of the robotic assistant. For ease of transport from one floor to another or from one building to another, the robotic assistant may deploy a handhold that a human may use to pick up and carry the robotic assistant. Floor characterization sensors may be used to determine characteristics of the floor such as if the floor is wet or dry. The robotic assistant may be used to provide a user with access to network services, to monitor a facility, provide telepresence services, and so forth.

  • Publication number: 20220210094
    Abstract: A switch architecture for a data-driven intelligent networking system is provided. The system can accommodate dynamic traffic with fast, effective congestion control. The system can maintain state information of individual packet flows, which can be set up or released dynamically based on injected data. Each flow can be provided with a flow-specific input queue upon arriving at a switch. Packets of a respective flow are acknowledged after reaching the egress point of the network, and the acknowledgement packets are sent back to the ingress point of the flow along the same data path. As a result, each switch can obtain state information of each flow and perform flow control on a per-flow basis.

  • Publication number: 20220186381
    Abstract: A method may include cold spraying a masking material on selected locations of a component to form a masking layer, wherein the masking material comprises a metal or alloy; additively manufacturing an additively manufactured portion of the component at locations at which the masking layer is not present; and removing the masking layer from the component. The masking layer may be configured to protect portions of the component by covering or otherwise providing a physical barrier that reduces or prevents material from adhering to unwanted portions of the component during a subsequent manufacturing and/or repair technique. Additionally, the masking layer may be reflective to infrared radiation and/or intimately contact the component and function as a heat sink or thermally conductive layer to transfer heat from the component.
