  • Publication number: 20200310037
    Abstract: An example apparatus includes an optical fiber, an actuator, and a joint mechanically coupling the actuator to the optical fiber. The joint includes a neck extending along an axis. The optical fiber is threaded through an aperture extending along the axis through the neck. The optical fiber is attached to the joint at a surface of the neck facing the axis. The joint also includes a collar extending along the axis. The actuator is mechanically attached to the joint at an inner surface of the collar facing the axis. The joint also includes a flexural element extending radially from the neck to the collar. During operation, the joint couples a force from the actuator to the optical fiber to vary an orientation of a portion of the optical fiber extending from the neck with respect to the axis.

  • Patent number: 10776463
    Abstract: Embodiments herein disclose a method and system for authenticating users of an electronic device. In an example, data pertaining to a user of the electronic device is collected for authentication. The data is data indicative of an interaction behavior of the user with the electronic device. A deviation of the collected data from a behavior model of the user is checked. To generate the behavior model, data from multiple users is collected to create the behavior model corresponding to each of the users, each behavior model is indicative of data uncommon between the user corresponding to the behavior model and other users in the plurality of users to separate the user corresponding to the behavior model from other users in the multiple users. Further, an access control policy is enforced on the electronic device, based on the deviation of the collected data from the behavior model of the user.

  • Patent number: 10751196
    Abstract: An implantable medical device, such as an intervertebral spacer, may comprise a polymeric component and a metallic component. The metallic component can contain both porous metal and substantially-solid metal. The polymeric material can contain particles of an osseointegrative material. The metallic component can be more protruding toward bone than the polymeric component while having a smaller dimension of roughness than the polymeric component. In embodiments, the pin may press-fit against substantially solid metal. The porous metal may surround solid metal which in turn may surround the pin. The pin may have a press-fit with metal and a looser fit with polymeric component, if the metal components and polymeric components are trapped. A pin may connect superior and inferior metal components by a press-fit. The central opening may be exposed to porous metal and also to substantially-solid metal and to polymer. Specific geometries of implants are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10757216
    Abstract: A network-based enterprise or other system that makes items available for selection to users may implement group profiles for group item recommendations. A request for item recommendations offered via the network-based enterprise may be received. Multiple user accounts of the network-based enterprise may be detected as associated with the request. A group profile that includes the detected user accounts may be identified. Group profiles may maintain behavioral data for the respective user accounts included in the group profiles, as well as behavioral data for the group profile as a whole. Item recommendations may be generated according to the group profile and provided to the detected users. Group profiles may available across multiple systems and devices so that item recommendations based on a group profile may be provided to different systems.

  • Publication number: 20200262070
    Abstract: An end effector for engaging flexible packaging materials includes a frame, along with a first and second wheel mounted for rotation with respect to the frame. The first wheel and the second wheel are mounted to the frame relative to each other so that the outer surfaces of the two wheels are positioned opposite of each other. The first wheel and the second wheel can be driven in opposing directions to effectively define a roller intake which can be used to draw the flexible packaging materials of a target parcel between the first wheel and the second wheel. The end effector of the present invention can be combined with a robot to provide an improved system for engaging the flexible packaging materials of a parcel.
