  • Publication number: 20230236364
    Abstract: A system for maintaining relative orientation of optical fibers in an array is provided. Fibers extend parallel and include a first fiber and an adjacent fiber. The system includes a fiber holder with alignment holes configured to receive stripped fiber sections. The alignment holes extend from the first surface to the second surface, and the alignment holes include a first alignment hole configured to receive a stripped fiber section of the first fiber and an adjacent alignment hole configured to receive a stripped fiber section of the adjacent fiber. The fiber holder has a wall separating the first alignment hole and the adjacent alignment hole that permits rotation of the stripped fiber section of the adjacent fiber in the adjacent alignment hole without causing rotation of the stripped fiber section of the first fiber in the first alignment hole.

  • Publication number: 20230216818
    Abstract: Various techniques for gesture-based community moderation are described, including activating a moderator application at a computing platform hosting a syndication of electronic messages, receiving a signal causing presentation of an electronic message at an interface, detecting an input associated with a position of each of the electronic messages on the interface and activating an automatic action by the moderator application, determining if a non-compliant message component is included in the each of the electronic messages, modifying each of the electronic messages if the non-compliant message component is detected, invoking a predicted automatic action based on the modified electronic message, and displaying the modified electronic message in a different position of the interface.

  • Patent number: 11691309
    Abstract: An apparatus includes channel assemblies in a rotatable section, a cutting assembly, a discharge assembly, and a cleanout assembly. The channel assembly holds a bulk instance of compressible material extending through upper and lower channels of a continuous channel. The cutting assembly moves in relation to the channel assembly to isolate the upper and lower channels, severing upper and lower material portions of the bulk instance. The discharge assembly directs gas into the lower channel of a channel assembly to discharge the lower material portion from the lower channel, based on radial alignment of a conduit assembly of the channel assembly with a conduit assembly of the discharge assembly. The cleanout assembly supplies a fluid through the conduit assembly of the channel assembly, based on radially alignment of the conduit assembly of the channel assembly with a conduit assembly of the cleanout assembly.

  • Patent number: 11680616
    Abstract: Some embodiments relate to an electro-mechanical actuator that includes a screw, structurally segregated (split) housings, first and second nuts coupled to the screw, a sensor assembly, a plurality of motors, and a controller. The first nut is coupled to a first mounting point, and the second nut is coupled to a second mounting point. The sensor assembly may generate signals indicative of (e.g., relative) positions of left and right units of the actuator or positions of the first nut and the second nut on the screw. The controller controls the motors based on the signals generated by the sensor assembly. The motors may rotate each nut about a screw axis of the screw. This rotation results in one or both nuts moving along the screw. Movement between the first nut and the second nut along the screw adjusts a distance between the first mounting point and the second mounting point.

  • Publication number: 20230185752
    Abstract: A Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable includes a connector and a switch. The connector includes a housing configured for gripping by a user to manually insert/remove the connector to/from a port of an electronic device. The connector includes a power line configured to enable transfer of power to the electronic device and a data line configured to enable exchange of data with the electronic device. The switch is integrated into the outer surface of the housing and includes, for example, a toggle that is mechanically movable between a first position that activates a private mode and a second position that deactivates the private mode. The exchange of data with the electronic device is only enabled while the toggle is in the second position, and the transfer of power to the electronic device is enabled regardless of whether the toggle is in the first position or the second position.

  • Publication number: 20230166770
    Abstract: Four-wheel steering of a vehicle, e.g., in which leading wheels and trailing wheels are steered independently of each other, can provide improved maneuverability and stability. A first vehicle model may be used to determine trajectories for execution by a vehicle equipped with four-wheel steering. A second vehicle model may be used to control the vehicle relative to the determined trajectories. For instance, the second vehicle model can determine leading wheels steering angles for steering leading wheels of the vehicle and trailing wheels steering angles for steering trailing wheels of the vehicle, independently of the leading wheels.

  • Patent number: 11616786
    Abstract: Various computers will communicate messages back and forth over a communication network. These communications may exchange various information. In one aspect, an apparatus for communicating data over a communication network may comprise a computer processor, a receiver, and a memory. The computer processor may generate a request for transmission to a first server via the communication network. The request may include a data inquiry for data about an authorized user of a communication device. The computer processor may also generate a communication message for transmission to the authorized user with a prompt to provide user data via the communication device. The receiver may receive a response from the first server and user data from the communication device. The computer processor may further format the user data and generate a dynamic value based on the formatted response for display.

  • Publication number: 20230023286
    Abstract: A watercraft comprises a vehicle payload bay; a sail connected to the payload bay for propelling the watercraft in a foiling mode; and three or more hydrofoils connected to the payload bay. The hydrofoils are configured to provide control of the roll, pitch, and yaw of the watercraft and to elevate the vehicle payload by above a water surface when the watercraft is in the foiling mode. The hydrofoils can also provide control of roll, pitch, yaw, and elevation of the watercraft during the transition from a prone mode to a foiling mode. A mechanical propulsive system can be used for propelling the watercraft at least during transition from the prone mode to the foiling mode. The watercraft may not include a hull such that during the transition from the prone mode to the foiling mode, pitch and roll control are not substantially provided through the actions of gravity and buoyancy.
