  • Patent number: 10620721
    Abstract: Systems and methods for identifying locations and controlling devices are provided. For example, a user may indicate a location by aiming at the location from multiple positions in a physical space. The user may also identify a controllable device to control by aiming at the device. Example systems and methods include determining a first position within a three-dimensional space, receiving a first directional input, and determining a first ray based on the first position and first directional input. Example systems and methods also include determining a second position within the three-dimensional space, receiving a second directional input, and determining a second ray based on the second position and second directional input. Example systems and methods may also include identifying a location within a three-dimensional space based on the first ray and the second ray.

  • Patent number: 10482262
    Abstract: An application analysis platform enables automatic generation of abstract program representations (APRs) that are amenable to static analyses for finding security vulnerabilities. The APR is generated automatically, preferably from an existing build system or a source repository, and then encapsulated into a binary archival format for consumption by a static analysis tool, which operates on-premises or in the cloud. The abstract program representation is a highly compact version of the actual source code it represents. The archival format obfuscates the source code that is subjected to the analysis, thus protecting it from being reverse-engineered when moved off-premises or otherwise shared with other users, teams and even organizations.

  • Publication number: 20020062523
    Abstract: A patient-support assembly includes a patient support having a platform tub and a platform cover. The platform tub includes first and second walls defining an air flow channel. The platform cover is mounted to the platform tub to cover the channel. An elongated vent rail on the platform cover extends into the air flow channel and an elongated vent panel is pivotably coupled to the platform cover. The vent rail includes a plurality of vent channels separated by abutment surfaces. The vent channels communicate with respective air vent slots. The vent panel is pivotable between a first position abutting the abutment surfaces and a second position moved away from the vent rail to provide increased access to the vent channels. The platform cover includes air vent slots. The assembly also includes a side guard panel having first and second spaced-apart surfaces. The side guard panel includes a window in the side guard panel. The side guard panel includes an access port.

  • Patent number: 6049924
    Abstract: A patient-support apparatus having at least one side guard panel pivotably mounted for movement between first and second positions and a combined hinge and latch assembly configured to pivotably connect the side guard panel to the patient support. The combined hinge and latch assembly including a mounting member fixedly connected to the patient support, a hinge member fixedly connected to the side guard panel and rotatably connected to the mount for pivoting movement about an axis, and a stop mechanism coupled to one of the hinge member and the mount. The hinge member is movable along the axis between a locking position in which the stop mechanism engages the other of the hinge member and the mount to prevent relative rotation between the hinge member and the mount and a releasing position in which the stop mechanism is disengaged from the other of the hinge member and the mount to allow relative rotation between the hinge member and the mount.

  • Patent number: 5915072
    Abstract: A radiant heater apparatus includes a heating element which generates radiant energy. The heating element has first and second terminals. The apparatus also includes an inner tube configured to surround the heating element. The inner tube includes first and second ends. The inner tube is substantially transmissive to radiant energy. The apparatus further includes an outer tube surrounding the inner tube. The outer tube has an inner surface, an outer surface, and first and second ends. The inner surface of the outer tube is absorptive to radiant energy, and the outer surface of the outer tube is emissive to radiant energy so that radiant energy from the heating element passing through the inner tube is absorbed and re-emitted from by outer tube.
