  • Patent number: 11137582
    Abstract: A generally conical element is defined about a vertical axis and having a tip on the vertical axis, and a generally conical odd aspheric contour mirror surface that is defined upward from the tip relative to the vertical axis. A toroidal lens element, disposed to capture light data input of a surrounding scene reflected from the odd aspheric contour mirror surface, has a cross-section shape defined relative to a plane passing through the toroidal lens element and including the vertical axis and is defined by revolving a convex or concave lens surface cross-section shape around the vertical axis, the convex or concave lens surface cross-section shape defined from another axis parallel to the vertical axis but offset, wherein the toroidal lens element cross-sectional shape is constant in rotation about the vertical axis and imparts a toroid shape to the toroidal lens element relative to the vertical axis.

  • Publication number: 20210215005
    Abstract: An oilfield band cutter is useful for removing a band from a tubing string structure as the tubing string structure is being pulled up from the well. The oilfield band cutter includes a base frame with a central hole, an axis extending vertically and centrally through the frame coaxial with the central hole. A tubing follower member is coupled to the base frame and is positioned against an outer surface of the tubing string structure.

  • Patent number: 10898724
    Abstract: Embodiments enables a wearable phototherapy apparatus that produces beneficial effects to a human body such as anti-viral effects, activation of stem cells, improvement in strength, improvement in stamina, pain relief via a non-transdermal container. May include an optional transdermal container that releases or increases copper peptide GHK-Cu in a subject's body. The non-transdermal apparatus reflects or emits specific wavelengths of light to elevate levels of the copper peptide GHK-Cu in the body. The non-transdermal apparatus includes one or more materials that prevent the Left-Handed molecule from direct contact with the body while the enclosure is coupled to the body and prevents the Left-Handed molecules from entering the body. Embodiments may include or be used with any bioavailable form of copper, e.g., such as copper glycinate as an anti-viral therapy and may include an anti-inflammatory or both.

  • Publication number: 20210012125
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for changing vehicle configuration based on vehicle storage compartment contents. At an autonomous vehicle, a camera is mounted inside a storage compartment. The camera monitors the interior of the storage compartment. The camera can confirm that the storage compartment is empty when it is supposed to be empty and contains an object when it is supposed to contain an object. Any discrepancies can be reported to a human operator. The human operator can instruct the autonomous vehicle to change configuration to address discrepancies. In one aspect, a machine-learning camera memorizes a background pattern permeated to a surface of the storage compartment. The machine-learning camera detects objects in the storage compartment based on disturbances to the background pattern.

  • Publication number: 20200344293
    Abstract: The technology provides for a robotic control system implemented on a distributed system, which may include at least one processor on a cloud computing system and at least one processor on a robot. For instance, configuration data for a plurality of controllers of the robot may be received and the plurality of controllers may be deployed on the distributed system. For example, a first controller may be deployed on the cloud while a second controller may be deployed on the robot. The system may include a cloud database and a robot database. Both databases may store configuration data and current states of the first controller and the second controller, and may be synchronized. Workload for the first controller and the second controller may both be controlled based on the configuration data and the current states of the first controller and the second controller.
