  • Publication number: 20190382077
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a pedal system having a cuff for retaining a foot or footwear at the pedal in a manner that supports different sizes and form factors of feet or footwear. The pedal system has a rod secured to a pedal in a rotatable manner and the cuff is coupled to the rod. A lever may be coupled to the rod in a manner where engagement of the lever by the user's foot or footwear affects the rod and thus, a position of the cuff relative to the user's foot or footwear. The lever and the cuff may retain the user's foot or footwear at the pedal in an engaged mode and release the user's foot or footwear from the top surface in a disengaged mode. The pedal system is switchable between the engaged mode and the disengaged mode.

  • Publication number: 20190384346
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a pedal system having a pedal coupled to a main drive shaft having a locked mode where the pedal does not rotate relative to the main drive shaft and a released mode where the pedal can rotate relative to the main drive shaft. In the locked mode, rotation of the pedal relative to the main drive shaft is prevented by a plunger that engages the main drive shaft. In the released mode, rotation of the pedal relative to the main drive shaft is enabled by having the plunger disengage from the main drive shaft. The pedal system is switchable between the locked and released modes. When a user's foot or footwear is engaging the pedal, the pedal is placed in the released mode, and when the user's foot or footwear is disengaged from the pedal, the pedal is placed in the locked mode.

  • Patent number: 10503908
    Abstract: Techniques related to vulnerability assessment based on machine inference are disclosed. A vulnerability assessment server may receive, from a client device, a set of metadata corresponding to a program stored on the client device. Further, the vulnerability assessment server may extract a program name from the set of metadata. Still further, the vulnerability assessment server may determine one or more vulnerabilities of the program based on searching for the program name in one or more storage systems that maintain sets of vulnerability data.

  • Patent number: 10412825
    Abstract: A printed circuit board assembly includes a printed circuit board having a plurality of signal lanes. The PCBA also includes at least one application-specific integrated circuit operatively mounted to the printed circuit board and connected with the plurality of signal lanes. The PCBA includes a first configuration element operatively mounted to the printed circuit board in a first orientation and at a first location and having a first bridging element for providing an electrical connection between at least a first pair of signal lanes selected from the plurality of signal lanes. The first configuration element also includes a second bridging element so that if the first configuration element were operatively mounted to the printed circuit board in a different, second orientation relative to the printed circuit board, the second bridging element would provide an electrical connection between at least a second pair of signal lanes.

  • Publication number: 20190233873
    Abstract: An automated system for identifying in a biological sample microorganisms and their antimicrobial susceptibility (AST). The system provided an automated platform for preparing, from a single biological sample, inoculates for both ID and AST. The system loads a plate for ID testing as samples are being prepared for AST testing. The system tracks the sample and the inoculates from the samples to link the test results to the sample and the patients from whom the sample was obtained.

  • Publication number: 20190205974
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for distributing content items. In one aspect, a method includes identifying a content item that is eligible to be provided in response to a content item request and is associated with a bid. It is determined that the identified content item includes two or more different interactive elements that each cause different actions to be initiated in response to user interaction with the different interactive elements. An auction score is determined for the content item based on a function of the bid, a bid modifier for each different interaction, and a probability that each interaction will be invoked. The content item is selected to be provided based on the auction score. Data that cause presentation of the selected content item at a user device are output.

  • Patent number: 10324121
    Abstract: An electrostatic clamp monitoring system has an electrostatic clamp configured to selectively electrostatically clamp a workpiece to a clamping surface via one or more electrodes. A power supply electrically coupled to the electrostatic clamp is configured to selectively supply a clamping voltage to the one or more electrodes. A data acquisition system is coupled to the power supply and configured to measure a current supplied to the one or more electrodes, therein defining a measured current. A controller integrates the measured current over time, therein determining a charge value associated a clamping force between the workpiece and electrostatic clamp. A memory stores the charge value associated with the clamping force over a plurality of clamping cycles, therein defining a plurality of charge values, and the controller determines a clamping capability of the electrostatic clamp based on a comparison of a currently determined charge value to the plurality of charge values.
