  • Publication number: 20200248741
    Abstract: A bearing includes a body that defines a first arcuate support surface and a second arcuate support surface. The first and second arcuate support surfaces are to cradle a rotatable circular shaft against a net radial load that is to act on the shaft. The first arcuate support surface has a radius of curvature larger than a radius of the shaft. The second arcuate support surface has a radius of curvature larger than the radius of the shaft. The first and second arcuate support surfaces are positioned on opposite sides of a direction of action of the net radial load.

  • Patent number: 10471737
    Abstract: In an example, a transmission may include a driven gear attached to a module housing of the imaging module. Further, the transmission may include a retention nose fixed or attached to the module housing. The retention nose may engage with a retention shelf of a drive housing and may retain the module housing to the drive housing such that the driven gear is operably engaged with a drive gear attached to the drive housing.

  • Patent number: 10473205
    Abstract: An example shaft assembly includes a metal shaft and a plastic ring element interference-fitted to the metal shaft. The plastic ring element includes a footing proximate to an outer diameter of the metal shaft. The shaft assembly also includes a metal compression ring interference-fitted to the footing of the plastic ring element to apply a radial locking force between the footing and the metal shaft.

  • Publication number: 20190321711
    Abstract: A personal transport system is provided including, in an embodiment, an electrically powered vehicle, a companion remote control, and a companion mobile phone application. The vehicle includes an operator-supporting deck, one or more deck-mounted trucks, one or more axle-mounted wheels on each of the one or more trucks, one or more batteries, and a deck lighting system. The one or more batteries power a motor configured to drive the wheels by way of a pulley system, at least one battery of which is disposed under a battery enclosure. The battery enclosure has a first light indicator system, and the companion remote control has a second light indicator system, each of which is configured for communicating with the operator. The deck lighting system includes a light strip of light-emitting diodes disposed in a groove of the deck configured to change state to communicate with the operator or others sharing a road.

  • Publication number: 20190091553
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are discussed for an electric powered personal transportation vehicle with electric motors powered by one or more batteries. A set of universal battery mounting hole locations and a reserved space for one or more battery housings exist on a board for the personal transportation vehicle. The reserved space on the board for the one or more battery housings that house one or more battery packs is set to not interfere with an operation of the motors or the wheels. A first battery pack containing the one or more batteries differs in at least one of i) a different amp-hour capacity, ii) a different length, width, or height, and iii) a different shape than another battery pack designed to be physically contained in the one or more battery housings and electrically connect with corresponding electrical connections in the one or more battery housings.

  • Publication number: 20190091551
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are discussed for an electric-powered personal transportation vehicle with a composite board to support a weight of a user, one or more wheels driven by one or more electric motors, where the electric motors are powered by one or more batteries. The composite board includes a heterogeneous mix of individual components making up the composite board. The composite board includes i) a spine of the composite board made of a hardwood material connected to ii) sides of the composite board made of a vibration-dampening, high-density, foam.
