  • Patent number: 10251242
    Abstract: Techniques for employing an enhanced light device to determine desirable information to a user are presented. Such light device(s) can comprise or be associated with a light management component (LMC) that can employ sensors to monitor respective characteristics or conditions of a device, an environment, and/or a user to determine respective contexts for the device, environment, or user, wherein the user can interact with or be in proximity to the device or environment. The light device(s) collects data, including sensor data, relating to the device or environment from the device, the environment, or other data sources. The LMC determines a desirable subset of information to present to the user based on the respective contexts. The LMC facilitates presenting the desirable subset of information to the user via the light device or a communication device of the user that is communicatively connected to the light device.

  • Publication number: 20190088132
    Abstract: A broadcasting system for an autonomous vehicle is disclosed and includes an antenna, a plurality of sensors, one or more processors, and a memory coupled to the processors. The antenna is configured to send and receive wireless communication, and the antenna receives publically available wireless signals. The sensors are configured to generate signals indicating a real-time velocity and a real-time direction of travel of the autonomous vehicle. The processors are in communication with the antenna and the plurality of sensors. The memory stores data comprising program code that, when executed by the one or more processors, causes the system to receive as input the publically available wireless signals and the signals indicating the real-time velocity and the real-time direction of travel of the autonomous vehicle. The system is further caused to determine a real-time velocity and real-time direction of travel of autonomous vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10100386
    Abstract: A method for preparing an article of a base metal alloyed with an alloying element includes the steps of preparing a compound mixture by the steps of providing a chemically reducible nonmetallic base-metal precursor compound of a base metal, providing a chemically reducible nonmetallic alloying-element precursor compound of an alloying element, and thereafter mixing the base-metal precursor compound and the alloying-element precursor compound to form a compound mixture. The compound mixture is thereafter reduced to a metallic alloy, without melting the metallic alloy. The step of preparing or the step of chemically reducing includes the step of adding an other additive constituent. The metallic alloy is thereafter consolidated to produce a consolidated metallic article, without melting the metallic alloy and without melting the consolidated metallic article.

  • Patent number: 10095677
    Abstract: Disclosed are techniques and systems to detect a layout of a source document. A process may include receiving content from a first page and a second page of the source document, designating sections in each page along a first direction of the page, and assigning similar sections to a group. For the group, the process may proceed by dividing sections for each page into discrete portions associated with 2D coordinate areas, and identifying sets of 2D coordinate areas for the discrete portions that contain content. The number of times each portion contains some content may be compared to a threshold to determine a layout of the group of sections.

  • Patent number: 9965446
    Abstract: In some examples, a computing device may receive a content item for formatting, the content item including at least one scalable object to be rendered with a portion of content during presentation of the content item on an electronic device. The computing device may convert a complex shape element in the scalable object to at least one path command that includes a sequence of one or more paths that correspond to the complex shape element. The computing device may format the at least one path command for parsing by a content parser of the electronic device. Further, the computing device may associate the at least one path command with the portion of content so that the at least one path command will be rendered in place of rendering information for the scalable object that was originally included with the content item.
