  • Publication number: 20240071211
    Abstract: A method for predicting the behavior of at least one road user in a traffic situation. The method includes: obtaining a graph representation of the traffic situation, wherein nodes represent road users, edges represent interactions between the road users and define an adjacency between road users, each node is associated with a state, and each edge is associated with edge attributes; computing an evolution of the states of the nodes based at least in part on a self-evolution of the state of each considered node that is dependent on this state and mediated by a self-evolution operator; and an interaction of each considered node with other nodes that is dependent on the states of these other nodes and mediated by an interaction operator; and computing a sought property that characterizes the behavior of the at least one road user.

  • Patent number: 11914759
    Abstract: Examples of augmented reality (AR) environment control advantageously employ multi-factor intention determination and include: performing a multi-factor intention determination for summoning a control object (e.g., a menu, a keyboard, or an input panel) using a set of indications in an AR environment, the set of indications comprising a plurality of indications (e.g., two or more of a palm-facing gesture, an eye gaze, a head gaze, and a finger position simultaneously); and based on at least the set of indications indicating a summoning request by a user, displaying the control object in a position proximate to the user in the AR environment (e.g., docked to a hand of the user). Some examples continue displaying the control object while at least one indication remains, and continue displaying the control object during a timer period if one of the indications is lost.

  • Publication number: 20230302567
    Abstract: A method for making a cold plate includes the steps of positioning a finstock structure in a cavity of a substrate; and applying a cover to the finstock structure and substrate, wherein the applying step comprises ultrasonically additive manufacturing the cover to the substrate and the finstock structure, whereby the cover joins with the substrate and the finstock structure. The resulting cold plate assembly includes a substrate having a cavity, a finstock structure within the cavity, and a cover closing the finstock structure within the cavity, the cover being integrally joined to the substrate and to the finstock structure.

  • Patent number: 11076718
    Abstract: A cooking stone apparatus with a rotatable cooking surface for use in conventional ovens, barbecue grills and the like includes a stationary bottom support plate and a cooking stone rotatably supported on top of the stationary bottom support plate. The cooking stone has a perimeter edge with one or more engagement points for receiving a tangential force without slippage, such that when a tangential force is applied to any of the one or more engagement points, the cooking stone rotates about the perpendicular axis of the support plate.

  • Patent number: 10238236
    Abstract: An apparatus for converting a barbecue into a pizza cooking oven includes an open door frame and vertical side panels pivotally attached to the vertical side posts of the open door frame. The side panels can be pivotally adjusted on the open door frame to extend rearward of the open door frame at different pivot positions. When the side panels are extended rearward of the open door frame, the bottom edges of the side panels provide a support base for setting the apparatus onto the top rim of a bottom bowl of a barbecue and the top edges of the side panels support a cover of a barbecue in an elevated position above the bottom bowl of the barbecue. The elevation of the cover creates an expanded cooking chamber above the bottom bowl of the barbecue and the open door frame provides access to the expanded cooking chamber.

  • Publication number: 20180125302
    Abstract: A cooking utensil for flavoring a whole bird with salt includes a salt block configured to fit into the body cavity of a bird and a base pan having a salt block holder for holding the salt block in an upright position on the base pan. A whole bird can be placed over the upright salt block in the pan such that the salt block inserts into the body cavity of the bird. The cooking utensil holds a whole bird upright and at the same time adds salt flavor to the bird as it is being cooked.
