  • Patent number: 11959494
    Abstract: A pump assembly is presented including a motor housing holding an electric motor and a wet-end housing. The pump assembly also includes a heat transfer interface positioned between a front end of the motor housing and the wet-end housing. The heat transfer interface establishes a thermal conduction path between the motor housing and the wet-end housing so that, in use, a portion of heat generated by the motor is absorbed by the heat transfer interface and is dissipated in water circulating through the wet-end housing. In addition, or alternatively, another thermal conduction path may be established between the heat transfer interface and an electronic controller of the pump assembly so that heat generated by the controller is absorbed by the heat transfer interface and dissipated in water circulating through the wet-end housing.

  • Patent number: 11956713
    Abstract: In a network comprising both fixed transmission points and mobile transmission points, the transmission points may transmit discovery reference signals that allow WTRUs to detect and/or synchronize to the transmission points. The fixed and mobile transmission points may transmit discovery reference signals with different characteristics that allow the WTRUs to distinguish between fixed and mobile transmission points. The mobile transmission points may also transmit a separate maintenance reference signal that allows WTRUs to maintain a connection with the mobile transmission point. For networks in which fixed a mobile transmission points operate in different frequency bands, the mobile transmission points may also periodically transmit discovery beacon signals in the frequency band of the fixed transmission points to allow discovery. Conditions may be imposed on WTRUs before the WTRU will transmit to the network a measurement report reporting on a potential transmission point to which it may be switched.

  • Patent number: 11836981
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a person of interest in video that may be generated by multiple cameras in different locations. A sequence of images along with data such as time and location, called a tracklet, may be generated for the person of interest. This reference tracklet may then be compared to other tracklets received at later times to determine if the person of interest appears in these other tracklets. Analyses may include locating persons in the video images, calculating person signatures, and comparing signatures to signatures of the person of interest. Analyses may also include filters for possible locations of the person of interest based on how quickly this person could move from one location to another, and filters based on color of the person of interest's clothing. Possible matches may be confirmed by an operator, while matches with high confidence may be automatically identified as the person of interest.
