  • Patent number: 10963087
    Abstract: Pressure sensitive key techniques are described. In one or more implementations, a device includes at least one pressure sensitive key having a flexible contact layer spaced apart from a sensor substrate by a spacer layer, the flexible contact layer configured to flex responsive to pressure to contact the sensor substrate to initiate an input, for a computing device, associated with the pressure sensitive key. At least one of the flexible contact layer or the sensor substrate are configured to at least partially normalize an output resulting from pressure applied at a first location of the flexible contact layer with an output resulting from pressure applied at a second location of the flexible contact layer that has lesser flexibility than the first location.

  • Patent number: 10744999
    Abstract: A control system that controls a driveline of a motor vehicle to operate in a selected one of a plurality of configurations is configured to receive a brake signal responsive to the application of a braking system. The control system causes the driveline to operate in a second configuration and not a first configuration in dependence at least in part on the brake signal. In the first configuration a first group of one or more wheels and in addition a second group of one or more wheels are arranged to be driven by the driveline, and in the second configuration the first group of one or more wheels and not the second group are arranged to be driven by the driveline.

  • Patent number: 10206343
    Abstract: A plant nutrient delivery system comprises a sensor, an electronically actuated valve and an electronic controller. The sensor is positionable in plant growing media and operable to detect a condition of the plant growing media. The electronically actuated valve has a connection to a liquid nutrient source. The electronic controller is linked to the sensor and to the electronically actuated valve. The controller is programmed to carry out automatic demand-based nutrient delivery to the plant growing media by controlling the electronically actuated valve to turn on and off based on signals received from the sensor regarding a condition of the plant growing media, thereby causing a flow of the liquid nutrient into the plant growth media to start and to stop. Methods are also described.

  • Publication number: 20180345931
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electrical system for use in a vehicle. The electrical system comprises a controller and electrically operable vehicle brake means. The electrical system comprises at least one vehicle electric load including vehicle brake control means operable to selectively control the vehicle brake means to move between an engaged position in which the vehicle brake means acts to inhibit movement of the vehicle and a disengaged position in which the vehicle brake means does not act to inhibit movement of the vehicle. The electrical system also comprises first and second batteries for providing electric power to the vehicle brake means and the at least one vehicle electric load. In response to detection of a fault in the electrical system, the controller is operable to electrically isolate the second battery and the vehicle brake means from the first battery and the at least one vehicle electric load, and the vehicle brake means is configured to automatically assume the engaged position.

  • Patent number: 10013030
    Abstract: Flexible hinge spine techniques are described. In one or more implementations, a flexible hinge is configured to communicatively and physically couple an input device to a computing device and may implement functionality such as a support layer and minimum bend radius. The input device may also include functionality to promote a secure physical connection between the input device and the computing device. One example of this includes use of one or more protrusions that are configured to be removed from respective cavities of the computing device along a particular axis but mechanically bind along other axes. Other techniques include use of a laminate structure to form a connection portion of the input device.
