  • Publication number: 20210085091
    Abstract: An in-bed haptic device may include an array of actuation cells. Actuation cells of the array of actuation cells may be configured to actuate (e.g., expand, contract, or otherwise change shape) in a predetermined sequence to provide haptic outputs. The in-bed haptic device may be configured to be placed beneath a user during use, for example between a user and a mattress. The haptic outputs may be provided to help a user relax, to move and/or wake a user, to indicate outputs, alerts, or notifications at the in-bed haptic device or another electronic device, or the like.

  • Patent number: 10140540
    Abstract: A vehicle imaging system may include a first circuit board, and the system may also include an additional circuit board. The circuit boards may hold components for capturing images of vehicles as well as components for analyzing images of vehicles that have been captured. The analyzing may include performing optical character recognition on portions on images to identify characters in the images. A housing may enclose the circuit boards. The vehicle imaging system may be a license plate recognition system, a DOT number reader system, a hazardous material placard reader system, or a container code reader system, for example.

  • Patent number: 8221562
    Abstract: A method for casting medium carbon, B/Ti steel product using compact strip processing or thin slab casting. The method can include providing a steel composition including boron and titanium and casting the steel composition into a slab having a thickness between about 25 and 150 mm. The slab can have a cast composition including about 0.23 to 0.30 wt. % carbon, about 0.0010 to 0.0050 wt. % boron, about 0.010 to 0.050 wt. % titanium, about 1.15 to 1.50 wt. % manganese, less than 0.35 wt. % silicon and a Ti/N ratio greater than 2.9. The amount of each element is provided based upon the total weight of the steel composition. The steel slab can be free from cracks and significant defects. Furthermore, the steel slab can be used for electric resistance welded (ERW) products.

  • Publication number: 20080209847
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of strengthening stone and other construction materials. The inventive method is performed on the monument, building or statue in question or on any other object that has undergone deterioration. It achieves the formation of a mesoporous molecular sieve with an ordered topology in the pores of the altered substrate. The invention is advantageous in that: by considerably increasing the radius of the pores of the gel in relation to that of commercial binders, capillary pressure is significantly reduced and, with it, the risk of fractures in the material; by obtaining a binder having a uniform pore radius, the risk of fracture is prevented since it impedes the occurrence of stresses caused by pores of different sizes; by obtaining a mesoporous material with a given pore volume, the pores of the altered substrate are prevented from being blocked and, consequently, the damp-proofing of the building is impeded.
