  • Publication number: 20200170671
    Abstract: The present embodiments relate generally to systems and methods for measuring an analyte in a host. More particularly, the present embodiments provide sensor applicators and methods of use with activation that implant the sensor, withdraw the insertion needle, engage the transmitter with the housing, and disengage the applicator from the housing. Systems and methods according to present principles allow for such steps to occur without significant loss of spring force, and without deleterious effects such as seal slingshotting.

  • Publication number: 20200139131
    Abstract: Techniques related to classifying a posture state of a living body are disclosed. One aspect relates to sensing at least one signal indicative of a posture state of a living body. Posture state detection logic classifies the living body as being in a posture state based on the at least one signal, wherein this classification may take into account at least one of posture and activity state of the living body. The posture state detection logic further determines whether the living body is classified in the posture state for at least a predetermined period of time. Response logic is described that initiates a response as a result of the body being classified in the posture state only after the living body has maintained the classified posture state for at least the predetermined period of time. This response may involve a change in therapy, such as neurostimulation therapy, that is delivered to the living body.

  • Patent number: 10596709
    Abstract: A system and method for using locally stored historical performance data with a self-contained modular manufacturing device having modular tools and parts configured to collectively accomplish a specific task or function. In an embodiment, the modular device includes an interface configured to communicate with a remote control system capable of control the robotic arm. The modular device also includes one or more other modules that are configured to accomplish a particular task or function. Such modules are sometimes called end-effectors and work in conjunction with each other to accomplish tasks and functions. In a self-contained modular manufacturing device, a processor disposed in the housing may be configured to control the functional tools (e.g., each end-effector) independent of the overall manufacturing control system. Further, historical data may be locally stored and retrieved to tailor the functioning of the modular device.

  • Patent number: 10557918
    Abstract: A method for establishing and controlling a mobile perimeter and for determining a geographic location of an emitting radio frequency (RF) emitter in a vicinity of the mobile perimeter includes at each of a plurality of RF sensors, receiving an RF transmission, processing the received RF transmission to produce RF signal data, and wirelessly transmitting the RF signal data to a central station. At the central station, a processor: executes a cross-correlation process to: compare characteristics of pairs of RF signal data; based on the compared characteristics, determine a time difference of arrival (TDOA) between RF transmissions received at each RF sensor of a pair of RF sensors, and repeats the cross-correlation process for each pair of RF sensors from which RF signal data are received. Using the TDOA values for two or more pairs of RF sensors, the processor determines a location estimate for the RF emitter.

  • Publication number: 20190339414
    Abstract: A method of evaluating subsea geodetic data, the method includes providing at least one tiltmeter station along a subsea surface. The tiltmeter stations are positioned at a plurality of surface locations. Subsea geodetic data is obtained, the subsea geodetic data including subsea surface gradient information from the tiltmeter stations, and subsea surface elevation information. A set of constraining relationships is generated based on the geodetic data. Values for temporal changes in subsea surface elevations and subsea surface gradients at each desired surface location is identified based on determining a solution to the set of constraining relationships.
