  • Patent number: 10888314
    Abstract: A suturing device includes a curved needle, a suture, an elongate body, an actuator and a curved needle holder. The suture connects with the curved needle. The actuator is operable between a first operating position and a second operating position. The curved needle holder extends away from a distal end portion or is provided as part of the distal end portion of the elongate body. The curved needle holder includes a distal end section having a distal-most tip. The curved needle holder defines a curved needle passage and a distal opening. Movement of the actuator from the first operating position toward the second operating position moves the curved needle with respect to the curved needle holder toward a released condition. The distal end section is configured to allow the curved needle to release from the curved needle holder at a location offset from the distal-most tip.

  • Publication number: 20200396578
    Abstract: Devices and methods for internet of things (IOT) discovery/auto discovery are described. A discovery packet is received from a device. The discovery packet includes a first stream identifier and a request to establish a second stream. A stream acceptance packet is sent to the device. The stream acceptance packet includes the first stream identifier and an input for generating a second stream identifier. A first association is added to the registration based on the request to establish the second stream. The first association is between the second stream identifier and a determined destination. A first data packet is received from the device, where the first data packet includes/utilizes the second stream identifier. The first data packet is sent to the destination based on the first association in the registration.

  • Publication number: 20200396074
    Abstract: A node and methods for securely communicating information are described. The node includes a transducer that provides a first stream of data elements, a network interface, and a microcontroller. The microcontroller identifies a first data type associated with the first stream of data elements from the transducer, harvests each data element (e.g., measurement) from the first stream of data elements based on the first data type, aggregates a plurality of the measurements into an array of first measurements, generates a payload that includes a length identifier, a data type identifier that identifies the first data type, and the array of first measurements, identifies a destination for the payload, determines a token based on the identified destination, adds the identified token to the payload to form a datagram; and sends the datagram to the destination, via the network interface.
