  • Publication number: 20200317088
    Abstract: A user interface for a snow groomer or other tracked vehicle, such as tracked carrier to carry and enable use of work equipment on various terrains, is provided. The user interface may comprise an input device, an output device and a controller. The controller is configured to receive from the input device an indication of a desired snow grooming distance, and the controller is further configured to measure a distance traveled by the snow groomer, and to cause the output device to convey a remaining distance to be traveled by the snow groomer, the remaining distance being the difference between the desired snow grooming distance and the distance traveled by the snow groomer.

  • Patent number: 10782853
    Abstract: Certain exemplary embodiments relate to entertainment systems and, more particularly, certain exemplary embodiments relate to jukebox systems that incorporate digital downloading jukebox features along with karaoke jukebox and/or photobooth features. A combined karaoke/photobooth/jukebox may enable more integrated performance-like experiences in an in-home or out-of-home location or venue. By leveraging vast audio media libraries, trusted rights-respecting network infrastructure, and on-site image/video capturing from integrated recorders and/or remote portable devices, a more sociable experience may be created for karaoke jukebox patrons, e.g., where custom content can be generated and shared in a safe and legally appropriate manner.

  • Patent number: 10586863
    Abstract: Provided are a low-cost semiconductor device manufacturing method and a semiconductor device made using the method. The method includes forming multiple body regions in a semiconductor substrate, forming multiple gate insulating layers and multiple gate electrodes in the body region; implementing a blanket ion implantation in an entire surface of the substrate to form a low concentration doping region (LDD region) in the body region without a mask, forming a spacer at a side wall of the gate electrode, and implementing a high concentration ion implantation to form a high concentration source region and a high concentration drain region around the LDD region. According to the examples, devices have favorable electrical characteristics and at the same time, manufacturing costs are reduced. Since, when forming high concentration source region and drain regions, tilt and rotation co-implants are applied, an LDD masking step is potentially omitted.
