  • Publication number: 20200089400
    Abstract: The present invention relates to touch sensor detectors incorporating interpolated variable impedance touch sensor arrays and specifically to detectors for non-planar touch controls. Variable impedance touch sensor arrays are applied to the surface of objects, inside objects, or other objects such that touches are detected directly or indirectly from the non-planar touch controls. An exemplary system includes a plurality of sensor panels on a plurality of device and a processor communicatively coupled to the sensor panels. The sensor panels include a plurality of physical VIA columns connected by interlinked impedance columns and a plurality of physical VIA rows connected by interlinked impedance rows. The processor detects touches at a first time at the sensor panels, determines that the two or more touches at the first time are arranged in a pattern corresponding to a predetermined gesture, and determines a relative pressure between the two or more touches.

  • Publication number: 20200089367
    Abstract: The present invention relates to interpolated variable impedance touch sensor arrays for force-aware large-surface device interaction. An exemplary system for detecting a continuous pressure curve includes a plurality of physical variable impedance array (VIA) columns connected by interlinked impedance columns and a plurality of physical VIA rows connected by interlinked impedance rows. The system also includes a plurality of column drive sources connected to the interlinked impedance columns and to the plurality of physical VIA columns through the interlinked impedance columns as well as a plurality of row sense sinks connected to the interlinked impedance rows and to the plurality of physical VIA rows through the interlinked impedance rows. Further, the system includes a processor configured to interpolate the continuous pressure curve in the physical VIA columns and physical VIA rows from an electrical signal from the plurality of column drive sources sensed at the plurality of row sense sinks.

  • Publication number: 20200089383
    Abstract: The present invention relates to touch sensor detector systems and methods incorporating an interpolated variable impedance touch sensor array and specifically to such systems and methods for gesture recognition and associating a UI element with the recognized gesture. In one embodiment, the present invention provides a variable impedance array (VIA) system for receiving a gesture that includes: a plurality of physical VIA columns connected by interlinked impedance columns; a plurality of physical VIA rows connected by interlinked impedance rows; and a processor configured to interpolate a location and/or pressure of the gesture in the physical columns and rows from an electrical signal from a plurality of column drive sources (connected to the plurality of physical VIA columns through the interlinked impedance columns) sensed at a plurality of row sense sinks (connected to the plurality of physical VIA rows through the interlinked impedance rows).

  • Publication number: 20190138301
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can receive information about an application design plan. The application design plan can be associated with at least one deployment criterion. One or more available infrastructure resources can be identified based on the information about the application design plan. A plurality of deployment options can be determined based on the one or more available infrastructure resources. The plurality of deployment options can be determined to be compliant with the at least one deployment criterion. The plurality of deployment options can be ranked to produce an ordered set of deployment options.

  • Publication number: 20190132255
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can receive information about requested resources from a computational resource consumer. The information about the requested resources can be analyzed to generate a first multi-dimensional array including a first set of name-value pairs associated with the requested resources. Information about offered resources can be received from a computational resource provider. The information about the offered resources can be analyzed to generate a second multi-dimensional array including a second set of name-value pairs associated with the offered resources. The first multi-dimensional array and the second multi-dimensional array can be evaluated based on an evaluation algorithm.
