  • Publication number: 20200304753
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide various examples of displaying video images of a surgical video captured at a first resolution on a screen of a surgical system having a second resolution lower than the first resolution. In one aspect, a process begins by receiving the surgical video and selecting a first portion of the video images having the same or substantially the same resolution as the second resolution. The process subsequently displays the first portion of the video images on the screen. While displaying the first portion of the video images, the process monitors a second portion of the video images not being displayed on the screen for a set of predetermined events, wherein the second portion is not visible to the user. When a predetermined event in the set of predetermined events is detected in the second portion, the process generates an alert to notify the user.

  • Patent number: 10725731
    Abstract: This is directed to controlling the output of audio based on the mode of an electronic device. In particular, this is directed to an electronic device having a sound mode, silent mode, and mute mode controlling the output of audio along different audio output routes. In the sound mode, all audio can be output, while only registered or authorized audio can be output in the silent mode. In the mute mode, no audio can be output. The sound and silent modes can be enabled using an interface of the device (e.g., a switch having two possible states), while the mute mode can be enabled using an accessory coupled to the device. To disengage the mute mode, a user can provide a corresponding instruction using the accessory, or providing an instruction on the device related to volume control. For example, a user can change the device volume using an on-device interface, or toggle a sound/silent switch to a sound mode.

  • Publication number: 20200214395
    Abstract: Systems and apparatus related to footwear including a modular lacing engine are discussed. In this example, the lace guide is deformable to assist in facilitating automated lace tightening. The lace guide can include a middle section, a first extension and a second extension. In this example, the lace guide can be configured to define a first route for a lace cable, the first route including receiving the lace cable along the first incoming lace axis and expelling the lace cable along the first outgoing lace axis. In this example, the lace guide can also deflect, in response to tension on the lace cable, resulting in defining a second route for the lace cable, the second route including receiving the lace cable along a second incoming lace axis and expelling the lace cable along a second outgoing lace axis.

  • Patent number: 10708860
    Abstract: Systems and methods for wake up signaling in 802.11 DFS channels include enabling a primary connectivity radio of a device responsive to a wake up radio of the device receiving a composite radio signal transmitted by an access point in an 802.11 Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) channel, the composite radio signal comprising a wake up radio signal and a time-continuous signal, the time-continuous signal being substantially adjacent in frequency, but not necessarily contiguous in frequency, to the wake up radio signal; and exchanging data with the access point through the primary connectivity radio after the primary connectivity radio is enabled. The wake up radio signal may be an IEEE 802.11ba signal disposed in a center frequency band of a IEEE 802.11ax Physical Layer Convergence Protocol (PLCP) Protocol Data Unit (PPDU). The time-continuous signal may be real or emulated data traffic disposed in at least one IEEE 802.11ax resource unit.
