  • Publication number: 20200182218
    Abstract: A buoyant hydrodynamic pump is disclosed that can float on a surface of a body of water over which waves tend to pass. The pump incorporates an open-bottomed tube with a constriction. The tube partially encloses a substantial volume of water with which the tube's constriction interacts, creating and/or amplifying oscillations therein in response to wave action. Wave-driven oscillations result in periodic upward ejections of portions of the water inside the tube that can be collected in a reservoir that is at least partially positioned above the mean water level of the body of water, or pressurized by compressed air or gas, or both. Water within such a reservoir may return to the body of water via a turbine, thereby generating electrical power (making the device a wave engine), or else the device's pumping action can be used for other purposes such as water circulation, propulsion, or cloud seeding.

  • Patent number: 10680669
    Abstract: A frequency discriminator is described. The frequency discriminator comprises a power splitter (2) for splitting a signal into a plurality of paths (40, 41, 42, . . . , 4n). At least two of the plurality of paths (41, 42, . . . , 4n) include respective filters (121; 122, . . . , 12n) having different frequency characteristics which are configured to provide respective filtered signals to respective power detectors (161, 162, . . . , 16n. The frequency discriminator comprises an analogue-to-digital conversion section (8) which is configured to receive values of measured powers from the power detectors, to generate digital values of measured powers and to provide the digital values of measured powers to a digital processing section (10). The digital processing section is configured to estimate a value (11) of at least one frequency in the signal in dependence on the digital values, for example the ratio of the digital values, of measured powers and on frequency responses (201, 202, . . . , 20n; FIG.

  • Publication number: 20200151016
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention sets forth a technique for performing nested kernel execution within a parallel processing subsystem. The technique involves enabling a parent thread to launch a nested child grid on the parallel processing subsystem, and enabling the parent thread to perform a thread synchronization barrier on the child grid for proper execution semantics between the parent thread and the child grid. This technique advantageously enables the parallel processing subsystem to perform a richer set of programming constructs, such as conditionally executed and nested operations and externally defined library functions without the additional complexity of CPU involvement.

  • Patent number: 10634113
    Abstract: Disclosed is a novel device that converts some of the power in ocean waves into electrical power or other means of performing useful work. One or more tubes are arranged so that when the device is in position in a body of water, the tubes are oriented vertically with one end positioned proximate to and/or above the surface of the body of water on which the device floats, and with the other end positioned below the surface of that body of water. In some embodiments, through a differential restriction on the flow of air in and out of an upper end of the tube, the average height of the water inside the tube is different from the average height of the water outside the tube. In some embodiments, a hollow void inside a flotation structure of the embodiment is filled with water to contribute significant mass to the embodiment and increase the momentum associated with its vertical oscillations.

  • Publication number: 20200125051
    Abstract: An appliance may be controlled remotely, such as from a mobile device of a person. For example, a person may use their mobile device to cause an appliance to be disconnected from a power source or to be connected to a power source. In some instances, remote connection of an appliance to a power source may create an unsafe situation, such as when a stove that has been left on (e.g., via a control or switch of the stove) is connected to a power source. To improve safety after remotely connecting an appliance to a power source, the appliance may be monitored for an unsafe situation (e.g., the appliance generating heat, emitting gas, or consuming electricity), and if an unsafe situation is determined, the appliance may be disconnected from the power source.

  • Publication number: 20200115933
    Abstract: A power release latching system includes a gear and a pawl release lever. The gear is adapted to rotate about a rotation axis, and includes a serpentine cam component. The pawl release lever is adapted to pivot about a pivot axis spaced from and disposed parallel to the rotation axis. The pawl release lever includes a serpentine cam portion in camming contact with the serpentine cam component. The camming contact is configured to change from a low-speed-high-torque condition to a high-speed-low torque condition as the pawl release lever pivots from a neutral position to an end high position.

  • Publication number: 20200117206
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to controlling braking a vehicle in an autonomous driving mode. For instance, the vehicle may be controlled the autonomous driving mode according to a first braking control mode using a first model to adjust the position of a vehicle relative to an expected position of a current trajectory of the vehicle. Using a second model how close to a maximum deviation threshold the vehicle would come if a maximum braking strength for the vehicle was applied is predicted. The maximum deviation threshold may provide an allowed forward deviation from the current trajectory. Based on the prediction, the vehicle is controlled in the autonomous driving mode according to a second braking control mode by automatically applying the maximum braking strength.

  • Publication number: 20200114889
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to controlling braking behaviors a vehicle in an autonomous driving mode in the event of a hydraulic system failure. For instance, the vehicle may be controlled in the autonomous driving mode according to a first braking control behavior based on a first relationship between position of a brake pedal of the vehicle and amount of deceleration for the vehicle. While controlling the vehicle, a failure of a hydraulic system may be determined. Based on the determination, the vehicle may be controlled in the autonomous driving mode according to a second braking control behavior by moving the brake pedal until the vehicle reaches a deceleration target defined by the second braking control behavior.

  • Publication number: 20200102771
    Abstract: A two-pull, automatic reset, latch system is configured to operate during a no-power scenario and a power scenario. The latch system includes a release system, a release lever, and a coupling lever. The manual release lever is pivotally engaged to a stationary structure about a first axis. The coupling lever pivots about a second axis offset from the first axis, and is adapted to couple the release lever to the release system during a no-power scenario and upon two manual actuations of the release lever. The coupling lever is further adapted to maintain decoupling of the release lever from the release system during a power scenario.

  • Patent number: 10597950
    Abstract: A tubular member connection system includes a pin having a central axis, external pin threads, and an annular pin lip at a shoulder surface. A box has internal box threads and an annular box lip at an end surface of the box. The box threads are shaped to mate with the pin threads to releasably secure the pin to the box. A recess is formed in an outer diameter surface of the pin and extends in an axial direction from the pin lip. An anti-rotation key is located within the recess and has a row of teeth along an outer edge. A fastener retains the anti-rotation key in the recess. A circumferentially extending series of grooves on the box lip are sized to engage the teeth and resist a rotation of the pin relative to the box in an unscrewing direction when the pin is releasably secured to the box.
