  • Publication number: 20220015631
    Abstract: A contact tip for a contact tonometer has a body including a contact surface, and a coating applied to the contact surface. The coating includes a light-activated material and a biocompatible water soluble adhesive for adhering the coating to the contact surface. The water soluble adhesive dissolves upon contact with the corneal tear film during a tonometric measurement, thereby releasing the light-activated material into the tear film. The present disclosure further provides a single-use tonometer contact tip product which includes a sterilized contact tip having the mentioned contact surface coating, and an opaque package containing the sterilized contact tip.

  • Publication number: 20220021153
    Abstract: A manufacturing method for assembling a high voltage vertical disk ferrule, the ferrule being stamped and having a vertical disk-like structure, which is not necessarily round or does not necessarily have any roundness. The high voltage disk ferrule has an opening residing and traveling over the wire core and/or a wire braided shield, to which an end portion of the wire braided shield is affixed thereto the ferrule, or between two ferrules, such that a portion of the wire braided shield is flared and substantially perpendicular to the direction along which the wire core extends. The high voltage vertical disk ferrule slides over the core insulation, towards the outer insulation when the wire is pushed. The end portion/flared portion of the braided shield and the high voltage vertical disk ferrule, or the end portion/flared portion of the braided shield between at least two high voltage vertical disk ferrules are soldered, welded, or brazed together.

  • Publication number: 20220021152
    Abstract: A high voltage vertical disk ferrule, and method for assembling thereof, the ferrule being stamped and having a vertical disk-like structure, which is not necessarily round or does not necessarily have any roundness. The high voltage vertical disk ferrule has an opening residing and traveling over the wire core and/or a wire braided shield, to which an end portion of the wire braided shield is affixed to the ferrule, or between two ferrules, such that a portion of the wire braided shield is flared and substantially perpendicular to the direction along which the wire core extends. The high voltage vertical disk slides over the core insulation, and towards the outer insulation when the wire is pushed. The wire braided shield develops a natural spring force against the ferrule, and causes it to be accordioned, pleated, or folded against itself, and therefore pushes the vertical disk ferrule forward.

  • Patent number: 11227435
    Abstract: A cross reality system that provides an immersive user experience by storing persistent spatial information about the physical world that one or multiple user devices can access to determine position within the physical world and that applications can access to specify the position of virtual objects within the physical world. Persistent spatial information enables users to have a shared virtual, as well as physical, experience when interacting with the cross reality system. Further, persistent spatial information may be used in maps of the physical world, enabling one or multiple devices to access and localize into previously stored maps, reducing the need to map a physical space before using the cross reality system in it. Persistent spatial information may be stored as persistent coordinate frames, which may include a transformation relative to a reference orientation and information derived from images in a location corresponding to the persistent coordinate frame.

  • Publication number: 20220005348
    Abstract: The technology relates to detecting and responding to emergency vehicles. This may include using a plurality of microphones to detect a siren noise corresponding to an emergency vehicle and to estimate a bearing of the emergency vehicle. This estimated bearing is compared to map information to identify a portion of roadway on which the emergency vehicle is traveling. In addition, information identifying a set of objects in the vehicle's environment as well as characteristics of those objects is received from a perception system is used to determine whether one of the set of objects corresponds to the emergency vehicle. How to respond to the emergency vehicle is determined based on the estimated bearing and identified road segments and the determination of whether one of the set of objects corresponds to the emergency vehicle. This determined response is then used to control the vehicle in an autonomous driving mode.

  • Patent number: 11198124
    Abstract: A microfluidic probe includes a probe head with a processing surface that includes a first aperture and a second aperture. The probe further includes a liquid injection channel, which leads to the first aperture, and a liquid aspiration channel, which extends from the second aperture. The probe also includes a bypass channel, arranged so as to fluidly connect the liquid injection channel to the liquid aspiration channel, as well as a control channel. The latter fluidly connects to the bypass channel, hence forming a junction therewith, so as to define two portions of the bypass channel. These portions includes: a first portion that extends from the junction to the liquid injection channel; and a second portion that extends from that same junction to the liquid aspiration channel. The invention is further directed to methods of operation of a probe as described above, to process a surface.
