  • Patent number: 11575744
    Abstract: A method of controlling and coordinating of processing steps in a distributed system can be implemented by an initiator node of a cyclically-ordered set of nodes participating in a blockchain network (e.g., Bitcoin blockchain). The method includes generating a private key and cryptographic shares thereof for the nodes of the set and distributing them. A locking value is determined based on the shares and a transaction is arranged to transmit control of a resource responsive to supply of a corresponding unlocking value. A circuit of transactions amongst the nodes each arranged to transmit control of a resource responsive to supply of an unlocking value corresponding to a locking value determined based on the share distributed to a first node of one of two adjacent nodes and a value received from another node immediately previous to it is prepared. The initiator node may belong to a cyclically-ordered set of initiator nodes.

  • Publication number: 20230037046
    Abstract: A display system includes a head-mounted display configured to project light, having different amounts of wavefront divergence, to an eye of a user to display virtual image content appearing to be disposed at different depth planes. The wavefront divergence may be changed in discrete steps, with the change in steps being triggered based upon whether the user is fixating on a particular depth plane. The display system may be calibrated for switching depth planes for a main user. Upon determining that a guest user is utilizing the system, rather than undergoing a full calibration, the display system may be configured to switch depth planes based on a rough determination of the virtual content that the user is looking at. The virtual content has an associated depth plane and the display system may be configured to switch to the depth plane of that virtual content.

Based on e-pen/touch sensor device interaction, the first e-pen signal is coupled into at least one touch sensor electrode of the touch sensor device. The first DSC process the first e-pen signal to generate a first digital signal representative of a first electrical characteristic of the first e-pen sensor electrode. Similarly, the second DSC drives a second e-pen signal having a second frequency via a second single line coupling to the second e-pen sensor electrode and simultaneously senses, via the second single line, the second e-pen signal.

  • Publication number: 20230036431
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for detecting and compensating for highly reflective targets such as retroreflectors in a light detection and ranging (LiDAR) system. In some embodiments, a bloom event (response) is detected in a detector output in response to the transmission and reflection of emitted light pulses against a target. A beam width of the emitted light pulses on the target is determined. The beam width is used to compensate at least a portion of the bloom response to obtain range information associated with the target. In this way, bloom compensation is provided without shutting down the capabilities of the LiDAR system in detecting the target causing the bloom, as well as in detecting other targets in the field of view.

  • Publication number: 20230031622
    Abstract: A computing system receives a plurality of game files corresponding to a plurality of games across a plurality of seasons. The computing system generates a prediction model configured to generate a possession value for an event. The computing system receives a target event, in real-time or near real-time, from a tracking system monitoring a target game. The computing system generates target features for the target event based on target event data associated with the target event. The computing system generates, via the prediction model, a target possession value for the target event based on the target event data and the target features. The target possession value represents a likelihood that a team with possession will score within a following x-seconds after the target event.

  • Patent number: 11568390
    Abstract: Provided are a re-using e-commerce payment instruments for in-store purchasing systems and methods. A customer enters a check out and a transaction at the point of sale is started. The system receives a pairing request at a wallet processor from a customer mobile device operating a mobile application. This pairing request is created and sent in response to scanning of a code having a transaction identification. The system associates a customer payment profile with the transaction identification and sends associated information to the point of sale. The point of sale sends an amount of sale to authorize to the wallet processor after completing scanning of items. The system creates an authorization for payment and sending the authorization for payment to an authorizer. The transaction may then be completed by processing payment.

  • Patent number: 11565644
    Abstract: A passenger restraint system of a vehicle includes a passenger restraint article with an interface, and a locking device that secures the interface. In some embodiments, the vehicle includes a vertical channel that enables the locking device to travel up and down. The locking device may include a camera that enables the locking device to align with the interface, and once aligned, the locking device secures the interface. In additional or alternative embodiments, the locking device includes two C-bars and a biasing element that urges the locking device into an open position. When the passenger sits or leans against the opened C-bars, the force caused by the interface on the C-bars overcomes the force applied by the biasing element, urging the C-bars into a closed position. The locking device is then secured by engaging a locking bar that pushes against a surface of the C-bars.

  • Publication number: 20230021530
    Abstract: A timeline generation and solving tool is provided to parameterize a project at an application lifecycle management (“ALM”) tool, and generate and solve a timeline of features according to the parameterized project. The Scrum master may re-parameterize the project, causing a new timeline to be generated, solved, and visualized. In this fashion, the Scrum master may rapidly prototype many project parameterizations, resulting in many possible timelines. Without the use of a timeline generation and solving tool which interfaces with an ALM tool, retrieves project features, and converts project features to a common format suitable for computations based on working speeds, a Scrum master would need to generate and check a timeline by hand, and work indirectly by manually copying data out of the ALM tool, leading to a slow and potentially error-prone project roadmapping process which does not permit rapid prototyping of possible timelines.

  • Publication number: 20230021576
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for enhancing resolution in a light detection and ranging (LiDAR) system. In some embodiments, an emitter emits light in the form of multiplexed beams of randomized, multiple wavelengths across a field of view (FoV). A detector uses one or more detection channels to detect the multiplexed beams reflected from a target within the FoV to decode range information associated with the target. The multiplexed beams may be generated by multiple light sources such as laser diodes, or a single source such as a frequency comb device. Randomization may be applied via a pseudorandom bit sequence modulator, and multiplexing/demultiplexing may be performed using waveguides and micro-resonance rings (MRRs). The multiplexed beam may be emitted using an optical phase array (OPA) integrated circuit device to scan the FoV simultaneously using the different wavelengths. The range information can be used to adaptively adjust the wavelengths in a subsequent scan.
