  • Patent number: 10485681
    Abstract: An exoskeleton worn by a human user consists of a rigid pelvic harness, worn about the waist of the user, and exoskeleton leg structures, each of which extends downwardly alongside one of the human user's legs. The leg structures include hip, knee, and ankle joints connected by adjustable length thigh and shin members. The hip joint that attaches the thigh structure to the pelvic harness includes a passive spring or an active actuator to assist in lifting the exoskeleton and the human user with respect to the ground surface upon which the user is walking and to propel the exoskeleton and human user forward. A controllable damper operatively arrests the movement of the knee joint at controllable times during the walking cycle and a spring located at the ankle and foot member stores and releases energy during walking.

  • Patent number: 10360579
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for facilitating collaboration amongst individuals working on a coordinated campaign toward certain goals. In furtherance of these goals, the individual team members use technical resources provided by specialized tools, which are also sometimes referred to as applications or products. As the campaign progresses, these applications generate a large volume of data, some of which may be useful to teams other than those which were originally responsible for producing the data. In certain embodiments a campaign manager platform is used to facilitate data sharing and collaboration amongst the various teams that comprise a campaign. In such embodiments the individual team members interact not only with the applications specifically adapted for their team, but also with the campaign manager, which provides a medium for exchanging data and ideas with other teams.

  • Patent number: 10286174
    Abstract: An expiratory limb for a breathing circuit includes an enclosing wall defining a flexible singular expiratory flow passage between an inlet and an outlet and bounding the flexible singular expiratory flow passage and ambient air. The expiratory limb includes one or more regions of the enclosing wall that made from a material that allows passage of water vapor without allowing passage of liquid water, thereby forming a water vapor flow path from the flexible singular expiratory flow passage to the ambient air through the material. The expiratory limb is configured to allow diffusion of water vapor along the flexible singular expiratory flow passage and dry the flow of expiratory gases between the inlet and the outlet.

  • Publication number: 20180365238
    Abstract: A filesystem can be shared between containers. For example, a computing device having a host filesystem can launch a first container from an image file. Launching the first container can include creating an initialization directory for the first container on the host filesystem. The initialization directory can include a filesystem to be shared between containers. Launching the first container can also include creating a first filesystem directory for the first container on the host filesystem and mounting the initialization directory to the first filesystem directory. The computing device can also launch a second container from the image file. Launching the second container can include creating a second filesystem directory for the second container on the host filesystem and mounting the initialization directory to the second filesystem directory to enable the second container to access the filesystem.

  • Publication number: 20180239921
    Abstract: An implementation of this disclosure provides a system comprising memory to store a plurality of layers and a processing device coupled to that memory to set up the layers and to mount them into an overlay. The layers comprise an upper and one or more lower layers. The overlay provides access to a plurality files stored in the overlay filesystem. A request from an application to access a file in the mounted overlay is received. An access policy for the mounter that mounted the layers is identified in view of the mounter's credentials. The processing device checks, in view of the access policy, whether a security context label for the file provides access to the application and to the mounter of the overlay in at least one lower layer comprising the file. An instruction to provide the application with access to the file is issued in view of the check.

  • Publication number: 20170249469
    Abstract: An access control engine can enable a host operating system to propagate a private resource of an isolated virtual environment, such as a container, running on the host operating system outside of the isolated virtual environment. The private resource can include, for example, a file system mounted within the isolated virtual environment. The access control engine can receive a command and launch the isolated virtual environment in response to the command. Also, in response to the command, the access control engine can interface with a kernel of the host operating system to configure the isolated virtual environment so that the private resource is accessible outside the isolated virtual environment.
