  • Publication number: 20200362498
    Abstract: A method of detecting a mechanical decoupling in a laundry appliance is provided. The laundry appliance includes a rotatable basket and a motor configured to drive the rotatable basket. The method includes determining a target rotational speed and activating the motor at a first rotational speed proportional to the determined target rotational speed. The method further includes determining an actual rotational speed after activating the motor at the first rotational speed and comparing the actual rotational speed to the target rotational speed. When the actual rotational speed is greater than the target rotational speed, the method determines that the motor is decoupled from the basket.

  • Publication number: 20200362627
    Abstract: A perimeter light blockout system for minimizing light leakage between light gaps such as, for example, between the sides of a covering (e.g., shade) of an architectural-structure covering and the interior side surfaces of a window frame, or between the covering and the outer surface of an interior wall is disclosed. The perimeter light blockout system including a light blocking device and a mounting element for coupling the light blocking device to the interior side surface of the window frame, or the outer surface of the interior wall. The light blocking device may include rear and front channel members. The mounting element may be a mounting extrusion. Alternatively, the mounting element may be a spring clip. In use, the light blocking device may be adapted and configured so as not to contact the covering as the covering moves between extended and retracted positions. The mounting element may include a degree of adjustment so that the light blocking device may be aligned with an out-of-skew window frame.

  • Patent number: 10466051
    Abstract: A sporting field measurement system is disclosed wherein a user is prompted to select, on a mobile device, a field for marking from various sporting field types including, but not limited to football, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, track, tennis, basketball, cricket, polo, rugby, Australian football, volleyball, and badminton. The Global National Satellite System (GNSS) or at least the global positioning system (GPS) is used to locate a user's device. An application displays, on a display, of the mobile device, the dimensions of the specified sporting field as an overlay on a map, generated by the positioning system and it will communicate with the GNSS or GPS of the device to allow the user to track his or her movement along a specified path of a proposed field. This will allow the user to place the appropriate markers and/or paint the field. Deviations from the path may be indicated on the display of the mobile device or by an audio indication generated by the mobile device.
