  • Publication number: 20220241996
    Abstract: The present invention describes a novel spring mechanism for a razor. In the razor, the spring member may be disposed in a movable member assembly, portions of which may be used for ejection or pivoting. The spring may be fully encompassed within the assembly and be placed within supporting structures therein. The spring is a loop-shaped element having overlapping end portions with free distal ends. Alternately, the spring member is tear drop shaped loop shape with distal ends that are spaced apart. The spring may be disposed within a first and/or second movable member such as an eject button or a pivot member. A retarding structure on the spring provides a retarding force which is based on the interaction of the retarding structure with a protrusion on an assembly portion to keep the spring orientation intact. The spring is desirably comprised of stainless steel and is a flat wire.

  • Publication number: 20220248106
    Abstract: A transmitter for transmitting payload data and emergency information using data symbols in a single-carrier or multi-carrier broadcast system comprises a modulator configured to modulate one or more transmission symbols with signaling data for use in detecting and recovering the payload data at a receiver and to modulate one or more transmission symbols with the payload data. An emergency information receiver receives emergency information carrying information of an actual emergency. An emergency information embedder embeds emergency information into one or more transmission symbols, wherein the emergency information is embedded within a predetermined time period after its reception by using a resource used for carrying signaling data and/or payload data if no emergency information shall be transmitted. A transmission unit transmits the transmission symbols.

  • Patent number: 11402561
    Abstract: An optical element for implementation in a heads-up display or other near-eye display system includes a lightguide and an incoupler optically coupled to the lightguide. The incoupler receives a display beam incident upon the lightguide at a first incidence position. The incoupler directs a first portion of the display beam into the lightguide to form an incoupled beam and causes a second portion to remain non-incoupled relative to the lightguide to form a non-incoupled beam. The optical element further includes a reflector to receive the non-incoupled beam and to reflect the non-incoupled beam towards the incoupler to form a reflected beam incident upon the incoupler at a second incidence position. The incoupler direct a corresponding portion of the reflected beam into the lightguide to form a further incoupled beam.

  • Patent number: 11391219
    Abstract: A method of operating a gas turbine engine having a bleed air system with a switching valve, operable to switch between multiple air sources depending on an operating mode of the gas turbine engine (e.g. a motive powered mode or a standby mode), is described. The method includes operating the switching valve to provide pressurized air from a selected one or more of the multiple air sources to a cavity of the gas turbine engine having seals, and testing the switching valve to determine if the switching valve is functioning normally or abnormally. The switching valve is functioning normally when operable to switch between the multiple air sources and is functioning abnormally when switching between the multiple air sources is not possible. If the switching valve is determined to be functioning abnormally, the gas turbine engine is controlled to prevent a change of the operating mode.

  • Publication number: 20220207422
    Abstract: An apparatus for processing seismic data variables comprising a tracking module and an interpretation module. The tracking module selects groupings of subsurface data variables from the seismic data variables, selects a subsurface data variable for each grouping, and determines an isochron variable for each subsurface data variable for each grouping. Each grouping of subsurface data variables has spatial coordinates values. The interpretation module predicts a horizon variable for each grouping using the isochron variable and an algorithmic model or trained algorithmic. The interpretation module predicts a horizon variable using the isochron variable for each grouping and a trained algorithmic model. The tracking module selects the subsurface data variable for each grouping based on a peak, trough or zero-crossing identified in the grouping.

  • Patent number: 11370392
    Abstract: A vehicle ridesharing system includes a user interface used to interact with rideshare passengers. The interface matches a selected user identifier with a PIN index and sends the PIN index to a vehicle body control module (BCM) of the vehicle through an unsecure communication channel. The BCM uses the PIN index to select a salt value and a nonce associated with a unique user associated with the PIN index, and sends a salt and a nonce back to the interface through the unsecure channel. The user enters a PIN value into the interface to authenticate their identity for the rideshare service. The interface generates a first hash result by hashing the PIN value with the salt and the nonce received from the BCM, and sends the hashed result back to the BCM for authentication.
