  • Patent number: 9360398
    Abstract: The present invention provides a single self-contained device for collecting, extracting, on-site testing, and transferring for forensic confirmatory analysis, a wide variety of substances including, but not limited to, drugs of abuse, explosives, weapons of mass destruction, food toxins and industrial wastes. Samples can be obtained from a surface by swabbing a suspect area or the testing of solid materials (pills, capsules, powders), air samples and biological and non-biological fluids by placing the substance in the device. The device includes a swab, a retention well including a wash, and analysis technologies that can be, for example, a lateral flow testing system. The swab is rinsed with a wash prior to testing thereby not compromising the chemistry of the detection technologies and allowing for a wide variety of applications under a number of field conditions. Also, the device is a single self-contained unit instead of having a separate reagent droppers or sprays, making it compact and easy to use.

  • Patent number: 8414846
    Abstract: The present invention is a single self-contained device for collecting, transferring, extracting, and testing for the presence of a target analyte in a sample obtained from a surface by swabbing, solid materials (pills, capsules, unknown powders), air samples and biological and non-biological fluids. The device includes a swab, a retention well including eluent fluid, and analysis technologies which can include but are not limited to lateral flow testing analysis. The major improvement is the invention of rinsing the swab with proprietary elution fluid prior to testing thereby not compromising the chemistry and allowing for a wide variety of applications under extremely hot or cold field conditions. Also, the device is in one self-contained unit instead of having a separate water dropper or spray.

  • Patent number: 7468495
    Abstract: An airflow control system for an oven having an oven cavity and a fan having a first operating mode for generating a first flow of air and a second operating mode for generating a second flow of air is provided. A baffle is included adjacent the fan to direct the first flow of air to a first region of the cavity in the first operating mode and to direct the second flow of air to a second region of the cavity in the second operating mode. A method of controlling airflow in an oven having an oven cavity is also detailed. The method can include different modes of operation, with different clockwise and counterclockwise rotational times for the fan, with different heating elements energized, or a combination of both, depending upon the food to be cooked in the oven.

  • Patent number: 6804580
    Abstract: A system for controlling a plurality of robots and a method for controlling said system. Said system comprises a plurality of controllers, each having an associated motion system adapted to control attached robots, with each motion controller being able to receive motion instructions from at least one motion instruction source and at least one of said motion instruction sources being a control program, as well as a computer network over which said controllers communicate. In this way, the invention can be applied to solve problems which are commonly encountered in coordination activities such as load sharing, mating of parts while processing, fixtureless transfer, teaching, manual motion of coordinated operations, and time coordinated motion.

  • Patent number: 6341246
    Abstract: An object oriented motion system for controlling the movement of a robotic manipulator is presented. The motion system includes a trajectory generator object for producing a stream of machine joint commands. A kinematics object is operable to provide a set of robotic arm specific functions for the trajectory generator object. A servo object provides an interface to the servo system. The stream of machine motor commands are converted by the servo object to a stream of signals that drive the servo system, thereby controlling the trajectory of the robot arm.

  • Patent number: 6317651
    Abstract: A trajectory generation system is provided for operating a robot in response to a motion command. The robot is a multi-jointed manipulator with an end-effector that traverses a trajectory. A Cartesian trajectory generator converts the motion command into a requested Cartesian positions vector and a requested Cartesian velocities vector. A Jacobian matrix of the manipulator defines the relationship between the manipulator joint velocities vector and the manipulator Cartesian velocities vector. A requested joint velocities vector is computed from the requested Cartesian velocities vector by way of the inverse of the Jacobian matrix. The requested joint velocities vector defines a planned state vector for the manipulator.
