  • Publication number: 20210400624
    Abstract: A location control subsystem is provided that allows a user of an electronic device to define the granularity used to provide location coarseness. A user can define a coarse location granularity for an application. When a coarse device location is reported to an application, the location can be provided with at least a minimum degree of variable specificity based on the selected location coarseness. When an application is granted a coarse location, the application is to interpret the provided location indicating that the user may be anywhere within a geographic region of variable specificity, as opposed to being close to a center point with a horizontal accuracy based on the precision of the location fix, as when a fine granularity location is provided. In addition to reducing the spatial resolution of the location that is reported to the application, the temporal resolution may also be reduced.

  • Patent number: 11188527
    Abstract: A term base can be used to index a raw term (e.g., a text string from an electronic health record) to generate a computational expression of the raw term. As part of doing so, portions of the raw term including personally identifying information can be removed and/or replaced with de-identified information. The computational expression of the raw term can be used to generate a version of the raw term that is devoid of the personally identifying information.

  • Publication number: 20210249123
    Abstract: An electrosurgical system includes: an electrosurgical supply device, and an electrosurgical instrument, wherein the electrosurgical instrument includes a memory element which can be read out by the electrosurgical supply device when the electrosurgical instrument is connected to the electrosurgical supply device, and configuration data is stored on the memory element, which can be evaluated by the electrosurgical supply device in order to configure operating parameters which are compatible with the electrosurgical instrument. The electrosurgical system is characterized in that the configuration data is arranged in a flexible data structure which allows the memory element to simultaneously store multiple sets of configuration data which can be read and evaluated by different types of electrosurgical supply devices.

  • Patent number: 10874313
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure can provide systems, methods, and computer-readable medium for tracking the heartrate of a user using different techniques associated with different contexts. For example, motion of a user wearing a wearable device can be tracked using at least first sensors of the one or more sensors. The physical state of the user can also be tracked using at least second sensors of the one or more sensors. In some cases it can be determines whether an application of the wearable device has been launched. Additionally, an activity category of the user can be determined based at least in part on the motion of the user, the physical state of the user, and/or whether the application has been launched. Heartrate data of the user can be collected, and the heartrate data can be categorized based at least in part on the determined category.

  • Patent number: 10806302
    Abstract: The invention relates to a hand-held electrically driven domestic appliance and to a corresponding method for controlling the hand-held electrically driven domestic appliance. The domestic appliance includes an electric motor for driving the domestic appliance; a control unit for controlling the motor; a first actuation element for outputting a first control signal to the control unit in order to select a motor control mode; and a second actuation element for outputting a second control signal to the control unit. The control unit is designed to select a motor actuation mode from the specified motor actuation modes on the basis of the first control signal, and the control unit is designed to determine a motor actuation signal to be output to the motor on the basis of the selected motor actuation mode and the second control signal.

  • Patent number: 10449859
    Abstract: The invention relates to a fuel cell vehicle (200), in which the driver has more influence on the consumption and the dynamic of the vehicle (200). This is achieved by the fuel cell vehicle (200) comprising at least one sensor for detecting a first driver input and a control unit (60). The control unit (60) is configured to operate the fuel cell vehicle (200) in one of a plurality of operating modes depending on the first driver input, wherein a power consumption PAC of the air-conditioning system (70), an operating range of the fuel cell stack (10), and a transfer function for determining the power demand PEM from the second driver input are varied depending on the selected operating mode. It is provided that the driver has at least five different operating modes available, which differ in particular with respect to the available driving dynamic, the fuel consumption, and the adjustable comfort.

  • Publication number: 20190103193
    Abstract: A term base can be used to index a raw medical term (e.g., a text string from an electronic health record) to generate a computational expression of the raw medical term. The computational expression of the raw medical term can be used to generate a uniform medical term for the raw medical term. The computational expression can be compared with other computational expressions to organize the electronic health record, filter the electronic health record, and provide a uniform presentation of raw medical terms from different events in the electronic health record.

  • Publication number: 20190103172
    Abstract: A user's health record can be stored on a user device. Medical terms from the health record can be represented as medical term expressions using an indexing process. The medical term expressions can be used to search the health record, add additional contextual information (e.g., in the form of metadata) to the health record, and/or to filter record entries in the health record. This creates a personalized relational graph for the user. The medical term expressions provide for uniform display of the information from the health record.
