  • Publication number: 20190190739
    Abstract: A system includes a controller including hardware comprising at least one processor and a memory. The controller receives information from at least one sensor. At least one sensor is constructed and adapted to sense, non-intrusively, real-world physical information associated with at least one appliance. Based at least in part on the information from at least one sensor, the controller determines a current condition of at least one appliance and/or predicts a future condition of at least one appliance. Based at least in part on (i) the current condition of at least one appliance and/or (ii) the predicted future condition of at least one appliance, the controller initiates at least one intervention with at least one appliance.

  • Patent number: 9513911
    Abstract: A method of detecting stack overflows includes the following steps: storing in at least one dedicated register at least one data item chosen from: a data item (SPHaut) indicating a maximum permitted value for a stack pointer, and a data item (SPBas) indicating a minimum permitted value for said stack pointer; effecting a comparison between a current value (SP) or past value (SPMin, SPMax) of said stack pointer and said data item or each of said data items; and generating a stack overflow exception if said comparison indicates that said current or past value of said stack pointer is greater than said maximum permitted value or less than said minimum permitted value. A processor for implementing such a method is also provided.

  • Patent number: 9188422
    Abstract: According to the invention, a set of sensors (4a) is placed on this shape (curve or surface), each sensor outputting signals representative of the orientation of the curve or the surface at the location of this sensor; a model of the curve or the surface is chosen; model parameters are determined from the signals; and the spatial distribution of the points on the geometric shape are determined using these parameters. The invention particularly applies to machining, joinery, masonry, and building domains.

  • Patent number: 9171531
    Abstract: Musical rendition is provided through the use of microsensors, in particular of accelerometers and magnetometers or rate gyros, and through an appropriate processing of the signals from the microsensors. In particular, the processing uses a merging of the data output from the microsensors to eliminate false alarms in the form of movements of the user unrelated to the music. The velocity of the musical strikes is also measured. Embodiments make it possible to control the running of mp3 or wav type music files to be played back.

  • Patent number: 9150279
    Abstract: A method and system for measuring the output power produced in a device having a crankset, includes: measuring the orthogonal force exerted on at least one pedal of the crank; determining the angular velocity of the crank; and deducing the tangential force exerted on the crank and the power, using a pre-established model of the distribution of the force exerted on the actuating member as a function of the angular velocity.

  • Patent number: 8907194
    Abstract: The invention relates to a computer-aided prerecorded-music-interpretation system. The system comprises at least one musical actuator (A1, A2) actuatable by an interpreting artist user, memory means for storing musical information (MM) relating to the score of a piece of music to be interpreted by the user, and means for transmitting the musical information to an electronic/computerized device (A4) adapted for producing audio signals on the basis of the musical information received. The memory (MM) for the musical information defines the totality of the musical events (EM) constituting the piece of music to be interpreted. The invention is usable in the field of prerecorded-music interpretation.

  • Patent number: 8880208
    Abstract: Controlling playback by strokes entered via a MIDI interface or measured by one or more motion sensors is disclosed. The variations of the playback speed can also be smoothed to ensure a better musical rendition. The velocity of the strokes can also be taken into account to control the volume of the audio output and other gestures or strokes can also act on the tremolo or vibrato.

  • Patent number: 8072417
    Abstract: A stand-alone device for navigating in a space having at least three dimensions comprises a housing capable of being manipulated by a user. The housing houses means for generating signals that represent the inclination of the housing according to its pitch axes, rolling axes and yaw axes, and houses at least one isometric device that generates a control signal of a bi-directional displacement according to at least one axis of said space. The invention is used, in particular, for navigating in a virtual space.
