  • Publication number: 20220296815
    Abstract: A device for administering a fluid can include a cylinder, a piston connected to a piston rod, and a tensioning device connected to the piston rod. In a dispensing procedure, a ramp track is rotated until a roller runs over a transfer region and is accelerated toward the first plateau and, as a result, the piston is moved toward an open dispensing end. The ramp track runs on the face side of a wall extending along a circular path. A cover engages over the ramp track, the driver and the roller and has at least one scraper extending counter to the first direction and extending within the wall as far as the inner side of the wall, and thus scrapes off lubricant located on the inner side from the inner side.

  • Patent number: 11391586
    Abstract: An approach is provided for discovery of semantic nodes for map-based dynamic location sampling. The approach, for instance, involves identifying a semantic node occurring on a road segment. The semantic node is a point of interest on or near the road segment that is different from beginning node and end node of the road segment. The approach also involves calculating an estimated time of arrival at the semantic node based on historical traversal time data for the road segment. The approach further involves determining a sampling rate for a location sensor of vehicle traveling the road segment based on the estimated time of arrival. The approach further involves configuring the location sensor to collect location data using the sampling rate.

  • Patent number: 11384699
    Abstract: A method of operating a gaseous fuel internal combustion engine comprises performing at least one measurement relating to the combustion of a mixture of gaseous fuel and air in a combustion chamber of an associated cylinder in a combustion cycle. At least one combustion parameter, for example, a start of combustion, is determined based on the at least one measurement. When the combustion parameter differs from a desired combustion parameter, an ignition device associated with the cylinder is controlled based on the comparison in order to control the combustion in the current combustion cycle.

  • Patent number: 11340078
    Abstract: An approach is provided for path recovery when using map-based dynamic location sampling. The approach, for instance, involves initiating a capture of a current location of a vehicle on a road segment by a location sensor based on a keep-alive sampling rate. The location sensor is configured to operate at a sampling rate that is reduced from a default sampling rate in addition to the keep-alive sampling rate. The approach also involves determining a predicted location of the vehicle based on an estimated time of arrival of the vehicle at an end node of the road segment. The estimated time of arrival is based on historical traversal time data for the road segment. The approach further involves reconfiguring the location sensor to operate at the default sampling frequency based on determining that the predicted location differs from the current location by more than a threshold distance.

  • Patent number: 11260156
    Abstract: A sorbent canister utilized when performing a dialysis treatment during hemodialysis (HD) or peritoneal dialysis (PD) is provided. The sorbent canister includes inlet and outlet ports that include a threaded interface for connection to inlet and outlet tubes for circulation of dialysate through the sorbent canister. Upon disconnection from a dialysis machine, a pressure relief cap can be threaded onto the threaded interface to seal the fluid in the sorbent canister while allowing for off-gases to be expelled when a pressure within the sorbent canister exceeds a threshold pressure, thereby preventing a rupture in the canister body. In one embodiment, the pressure relief cap includes a deformable insert with a hole formed therein that is closed in an uncompressed state and opened in a compressed state. In another embodiment, the pressure relief cap includes a diaphragm that mates with a feature of the inlet or outlet port.
