  • Publication number: 20210361899
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides for a flow therapy apparatus that can implement one or more closed loop control systems to control the flow of gases of a flow therapy apparatus. The flow therapy apparatus can monitor blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) of a patient and control the fraction of oxygen delivered to the patient (FdO2). The flow therapy apparatus can automatically adjust the FdO2 in order to achieve a targeted SpO2 value for the patient.

  • Patent number: 11182760
    Abstract: Some systems and methods are directed to a device agnostic architecture configured to control and/or manage the interactions between any front end store systems (e.g., self checkout (SCO) systems) for capturing purchase items and backend systems (e.g., point of sale (POS) subsystems) for completing purchase of the items. The device agnostic architecture can include a translation layer or translation component that mediates communications from and/or between the front end and backend systems. For example, the translation layer maps any commands received from any SCO and/or POS device into execution commands native to receiving systems. For example, back-end processing systems can be configured to control on-line identification of products and/or services for purchase, and manage execution of sales of any goods or services. The translation layer manages communication between SCO devices and the backend systems so each communicates with each other according to their respective formats (e.g.

  • Patent number: 11182135
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to determining a similarity of components of a current user interface (UI) to new UI components for use in automatically generating a new UI. A computer system may receive information specifying a current UI including a particular current UI component and information specifying a plurality of new UI components for a new UI. The computer system may then identify characteristics of the particular current UI component. Based on these identified characteristics, the computer system may score ones of the plurality of new UI components, where the scoring is performed to determine a similarity to the particular current UI component. The computer system may then select, based on the scores, a particular new UI component from the plurality of new UI components for use, in the new UI, for the particular current UI component. Such techniques may advantageously improve user experience by automatically providing up-to-date user interfaces.

  • Patent number: 11180159
    Abstract: A method and system of intelligently alerting and/or routing vehicles to improve driving safety is disclosed. The method includes sharing data collected by vehicles in different locations to determine whether the presence of dynamically moving objects such as animals and pedestrians will affect traffic conditions for other vehicles on the nearby roadways. If the system determines there is a likelihood of such objects being obstacles to other vehicles, an alert can be automatically presented to the drivers of the impacted vehicles. The method further includes generating routes for the driver that avoid, or limit, the driver's exposure to the obstacle.

  • Publication number: 20210353895
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to medical tubes and methods of manufacturing medical tubes. The tube may be a composite structure made of two or more distinct components that are spirally wound to form an elongate tube. For example, one of the components may be a spirally wound elongate hollow body, and the other component may be an elongate structural component also spirally wound between turns of the spirally wound hollow body The tube need not be made from distinct components, however. For instance, an elongate hollow body formed (e.g., extruded) from a single material may be spirally wound to form an elongate tube. The elongate hollow body itself may in transverse cross-section have a thin wall portion and a relatively thicker or more rigid reinforcement portion. The tubes can be incorporated into a variety of medical circuits or may be employed for other medical uses.

  • Publication number: 20210338073
    Abstract: A method for controlling the illumination of ophthalmological devices which operate in an observation mode and a recording mode. The method adapts the illuminance from ophthalmological devices which include an observation mode and a recording mode and the illuminance therefrom being increased above a specified value for the radiant flux ?soll for the duration of the recording mode. According to the invention, the illuminance is increased to a radiant flux above the specified value ?soll for the recording mode and lowered to a radiant flux below the specified value for the radiant flux ?soll for a specified period of time after the recording mode has finished. Although the proposed method for adapting the illuminance is provided for slit lamp microscopes, it can be used for any ophthalmological device that has both an observation mode and a recording mode to obtain high-quality, well-lit recordings in the recording mode.

  • Publication number: 20210334666
    Abstract: A textual properties model is used to infer values for certain font properties of interest given certain text-related data, such as rendered text images. The model may be used for numerous purposes, such as aiding with document layout, identifying font families that are similar to a given font families, and generating new font families with specific desired properties. In some embodiments, the model is trained from a combination of synthetic data that is labeled with values for the font properties of interest, and partially-labeled data from existing “real-world” documents.
