  • Patent number: 10514092
    Abstract: A transmission position sensor body assembly configured to be securely attached to a transmission housing includes a sensor body housing, a cap member and compression limiters. The sensor body housing has a central rim and a pair of outer receiving lobes that define a corresponding pair of bores. The cap member has a central body portion including integrally formed outer ears extending therefrom. The cam member is coupled to the sensor body. The compression limiters are coupled to the cap member at the respective outer ears and that extend through the bores of the sensor body housing. Fasteners are received through respective compression limiters. Clamping forces are transferred onto the cap member during the tightening of the fasteners to the transmission housing without acting on the sensor body housing.

  • Patent number: 10485301
    Abstract: A method is provided for making footwear utilizing a spray-on material. The method can include spraying a spray-on fabric onto surfaces of a three dimensional last. The last can be produced using additive manufacturing techniques, such as 3D printing, based on data corresponding to dimensions and contours of a consumer's foot, and/or preselected aesthetic footwear designs. The spray-on fabric is sprayed onto the surfaces of the last and allowed to cure to form a flexible, non-woven fabric upper. The upper can be removed from the last and turned inside out. With the upper turned inside out, a sole can be joined to the fabric upper to form the footwear.

  • Patent number: 10490039
    Abstract: A detection device coupled to an item includes a sensor configured to detect user interaction with the item and transmit a signal related to the user interaction and the item. A processor of the detection device receives the signal and determines a type of the user interaction and information about the item based on the signal. The detection device is configured to transmit a signal indicating the type of the user interaction and the information about the item. A server is configured to receive the signal (e.g., from the detection device or a HUB) and determine a user interaction profile associated with the item. The user interaction profile can indicate data about one or more users' interaction with the item or data about the item. The server is also configured to output data indicating the user interaction profile via a graphical user interface or store the data.

  • Patent number: 10469622
    Abstract: Embodiments include processes, systems, and devices for initiating proximity actions upon the activation of a proximity connection. A proximity service receives an indication from a proximity provider that a proximity connection is established, and then determines a joint proximity context of the proximity connection. The proximity service then initiates a proximity action to facilitate a proximity function indicated by the joint proximity context. Joint proximity contexts include indications that an application has queued content to be shared with a proximity device, that an application has registered to publish messages on a namespace, that an application has subscribed to messages on a namespace, that an application has registered to find a peer application on a proximity device to enable multi-user collaboration, and that a device seeks to pair with another device.
