  • Publication number: 20230017194
    Abstract: An adjustable sofa-bed assembly for use within a vehicle such as a van or RV. The sofa-bed includes a seat portion, a back portion, and either a permanently fixed base or a removable leg portion which allows the legs to be installed into the vehicle prior to installing the seat and back portions to allow for additional elements to be installed beneath the sofa-bed, such as power elements for a powered sofa-bed assembly or for other equipment. The sofa-bed can be transformed from a sofa configuration with an upright back portion to a bed configuration with a laid-flat back portion. When in the bed configuration, the seat portion and back portion are aligned such that there is no gap between the two portions and the two portions lie completely flat, forming a complete bed assembly.

  • Patent number: 11466228
    Abstract: An improved method of sealing a window into an aperture in a body uses a lubricant comprising polymer particles suspended in a volatile, low viscosity, low surface tension carrier fluid. The carrier fluid is applied to one or both of the sidewalls of the window and aperture, and the window is pressed into the aperture such that the carrier fluid evaporates, leaving the polymer particles to fill interstitial surface voids, while enabling the sidewall of the window to make intimate mechanical contact with the sidewall of the aperture. While having broader application, the present disclosure finds particular utility in optical characterization techniques based upon the Raman effect and fluorescence probes used in process monitoring and control.

  • Patent number: 11436310
    Abstract: A biometric attribution approach identifies a keyboard actor based on timing between entered keystrokes. Patterns tend to emerge in a timing interval between keystrokes entered by an actor. The keystroke patterns of an actor are analyzed to compute a signature exhibited by the actor. Gathered or intercepted keystroke patterns of an unknown actor are compared to identify a likelihood that typing sessions emanated from a common actor. Keystroke activity of a purported suspect actor can be compared to a database or model of keystroke attributes for determining if the keystroke activity emanated from the same actor as other keystroke sequences. Keystroke patterns rely only on the timing between keystrokes, as key data and upstroke information need not be gathered since the comparisons reply only on keystroke timing deltas.

  • Patent number: 10300815
    Abstract: Adjustable driver's side and passenger's side side-facing sliding seat assemblies. Each side-facing sliding seat assembly is adjustable between an original seat orientation to an extended, sleeping surface configuration wherein the two side-facing sliding seat assemblies converge together, forming a flat sleeping surface. The side-facing sliding seat assemblies may also mate with a lay-flat sofa bed assembly for a larger flat sleeping surface. Each of the side-facing sliding seat assemblies may be powered and adjustable using a motor to transform between their two respective configurations.

  • Publication number: 20160062217
    Abstract: A camera-tablet device mounting apparatus is described, with related systems and methods, which allows for hands-free use of a tablet device in conjunction with the use and control of a camera. The mounting apparatus can be used to support a tablet device in adjustable user-preferred configurations, for various modes of camera operation (e.g. standard photography mode, video mode, self-recording/capture mode). The adjustable configurations of the mounting apparatus can be used to align the tablet device over the center of gravity of the camera, allowing for a properly weight balanced configuration in the user's hand. The adjustable configurations of the mounting apparatus can be used to fold the mount into a compact position. It is further contemplated that additional accessory devices can be supported by the mounting apparatus. A wired or wireless connection between the tablet device and the camera allows for remotely viewing and operating the camera through the tablet device.
