  • Patent number: 11231310
    Abstract: A fluid sensor system comprises a radio frequency transmitter with adjustable output power, a radio frequency detector proximal to the radio frequency transmitter; a constant current source, and a switch coupled between the radio frequency detector and the constant current source. A method of determining the identity of a fluid using the fluid sensor system includes immersing the sensor system in a first fluid, increasing a transmit power of a radio frequency (RF) transmitter of the fluid sensor system until an RF signal is detected by a RF detector of the fluid sensor system, and determining the transmit power of the RF transmitter that first resulted in a detection of the RF signal by the RF detector to be the transmit power that is required for detecting the RF signal in the first fluid.

  • Patent number: 11207599
    Abstract: A gameplay system for providing interactivity based on a piece of merchandise or other object held or worn by a player. Th system includes an object identification assembly, which may be a modified computer vision system, that operates to sense, for a gameplay participant, the presence and identity of a particular augmenting object such as themed merchandise worn or held by a rider of a theme park ride. The sensing may be performed by detecting an on-and-off pattern of light emitted from the object. In response, the gameplay system selects or modifies the interactive features of gameplay associated with the participant based on the identified augmenting object. For example, the interactive features are selected from memory by the gameplay system controller to match a character associated with the augmenting object during any interactive gameplay. This allows the gameplay participant to choose their abilities or powers for gameplay.

  • Publication number: 20210357267
    Abstract: A system and method for the dynamic, run-time configuration of logic core register files, and the provision of an associated execution context. The dynamic register files as well as the associated execution context information are software-defined so as to be virtually configured in random-access memory. This virtualization of both the processor execution context and register files enables the size, structure and performance to be specified at run-time and tailored to the specific processing, instructions and data associated with a given processor state or thread, thereby minimizing both the aggregate memory required and the context switching time. In addition, the disclosed system and method provides for processor virtualization which further enhances the flexibility and efficiency.

  • Publication number: 20210243180
    Abstract: Methods and systems for mapping a sharable resource using a one-time password are disclosed. An identifier included in a set of provided credentials uniquely associates the one-time password with an executable within a computing environment that hosts the sharable resource. When credentials are received in association with a mapping request, it is determined whether a supplied username corresponds to a user authorized to access the sharable resource and whether a representation of a supplied password received in association with the mapping request matches a representation of the one-time password. Validating the mapping request provides access to the sharable resource.

  • Publication number: 20210047136
    Abstract: Devices and methods for compaction of an asymmetric load are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, a movable upper structure is connected to a stationary base structure through front end pivot linkages and rear end pivot linkages. One or more actuators impart motion to the upper structure. The motion of the upper structure is controlled by adjusting the length and position of the pivot linkages. In other embodiments, the pivot linkages are attached to a pull arm that is attached to an actuator, and the pull arm imparts motion to the upper structure.

  • Patent number: 10902251
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided by which information such as text may be extracted from a captured digital image, and displayed as an editable overlay over the captured digital image in a digital user interface. One or more boundaries defining a region or regions of the captured digital image from which information is extracted may be displayed over the captured digital image, and may be selectively added, edited, or deleted, resulting in corresponding information in the editable overlay being added, edited, or deleted. Additionally, information in the editable overlay may be added, edited, or deleted directly. The extracted information may correspond to responses to a homework assignment or test depicted in the captured digital image. The extracted information may be arranged in ordered steps, with the order of the steps being editable, and individual steps being removable, addable, or otherwise editable via interaction with the user interface.
