  • Publication number: 20210137609
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods for registration of location sensors. In one aspect, a system includes an instrument and a processor configured to provide a first set of commands to drive the instrument along a first branch of the luminal network, the first branch being outside a path to a target within a model. The processor is also configured to track a set of one or more registration parameters during the driving of the instrument along the first branch and determine that the set of registration parameters satisfy a registration criterion. The processor is further configured to determine a registration between a location sensor coordinate system and a model coordinate system based on location data received from a set of location sensors during the driving of the instrument along the first branch and a second branch.

  • Publication number: 20210051177
    Abstract: An exemplary security virtualization system implemented by a multi-access edge compute (“MEC”) server identifies a security policy for a device that is separate from and communicatively coupled to the MEC server. The security virtualization system intercepts data transmitted to the device from an application server, and applies a security service to the intercepted data in accordance with the security policy identified for the device. Subsequent to the applying of the security service, the security virtualization system delivers, to the device by way of a secure connection between the security virtualization system and the device, sanitized data that corresponds to the intercepted data and has been sanitized by way of the security service. Corresponding methods and systems are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210049032
    Abstract: An exemplary client virtualization system implemented by a multi-access server receives a service request from an Internet of Things (“IoT”) device that is separate from and communicatively coupled to the multi-access server. In response to the service request, the client virtualization system instantiates a virtualized device management client configured to serve the IoT device and that is hosted on the multi-access server. The client virtualization system receives a device management message that is for the IoT device and that is from a centralized device management server. The client virtualization system then delivers the device management message to the IoT device. Corresponding methods and systems are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10814540
    Abstract: A hot runner injection molding apparatus, and method of use, is disclosed in which strain gauges are provided in the temperature zones of the hot runner injection molding apparatus and a hot runner controller creates a target strain profile, detects deviations from the target strain profile in any temperature zone based on the strain readings provided by the strain gauges in each temperature zone, and instructs correction of deviations from the target strain profile in any deviating temperature zone by adjusting the heat produced by a heater or heaters in the deviating temperature zone. The target strain profile may be based on a median or average of strain readings provided over time by the strain gauges in each temperature zone. A hollow installation tube for placing the strain gauges in the hot runner injection molding apparatus is also disclosed.
