  • Publication number: 20220281244
    Abstract: A system is disclosed. The system comprises a roller with a spindle to wind and/or unwind a roll of media, a media advancement sensor to measure the advancement of the media, and a controller. The controller is to control the spindle to rotate an angular displacement, and to determine a calculated media advancement based on the angular displacement and a radius of the roll of media. The controller is also to receive from the media advancement sensor a measured media advancement. The controller is further to detect that a displacement difference between the measured media advancement and the determined media advancement exceeds a predetermined threshold. If the displacement difference exceeds the predetermined threshold a slippage condition is detected.

  • Patent number: 11413892
    Abstract: Obstacle detection for a moving element activated by a motor is disclosed. The obstacle detection may comprise a controller to: move the element at a substantially constant speed; determine an actual torque value to move the element at the constant speed; determine a torque parameter based on the actual torque value; comparing the torque parameter with a threshold value; and determining the presence of an obstacle if the torque parameter is above the torque parameter threshold; wherein the torque parameter is determined based on a set of historical torque values and the actual torque value.

  • Patent number: 11406232
    Abstract: An improved tear resistant wiper is provided having a repeating pattern of thin, closely spaced curvilinear embossed elements adjacent the leading edge of the wipe and which pattern extends inwardly less than a third of the length of the wipe. The linear emboss elements have a high aspect ratio and narrow width in order to obtain a high density of embossments such that discrete unembossed regions within the leading edge region are small and yet the overall unembossed area still occupies at least 70% of the surface area.

  • Publication number: 20220045953
    Abstract: A network device transmits data to a user equipment (UE) via a first Radio Access Network (RAN) using first Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) congestion control parameters. The network device receives a notification message indicating that the UE has moved from the first RAN to a second RAN. The network device modifies, responsive to receipt of the notification, the first TCP congestion control parameters to create second TCP congestion control parameters, where the first TCP congestion control parameters include a first slow start threshold (ssthresh), and wherein the second TCP congestion control parameters include a second ssthresh that is different than the first ssthresh. The network device transmits data to the UE via the second RAN using the second TCP congestion control parameters.
