  • Publication number: 20210124814
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for transitioning a device controller comprised with an electronic device from an at least partly inactive mode to an at least partly active mode, wherein the method comprises: determining the area portion of a finger detecting structure being touched by an object; determining a force applied on the fingerprint sensing device. When the area portion of the finger detecting structure being touched by the object exceeds a predetermined threshold area portion, and the force exceeds a predetermined threshold force value, transitioning, using the pre-processing module, the device controller from the at least partly inactive mode to the at least partly active mode. The invention also relates to such an electronic device.

  • Patent number: 10960546
    Abstract: A shear pin for calibrating an industrial robot, the shear pin including an elongated body including a weakening defining a break location in case of overload. The shear pin is configured to be mounted to a calibration pin holder on the robot. A maximum force that the calibration pin can exert on the robot during calibration can be easily limited by dimensioning the weakening appropriately.

  • Patent number: 10539499
    Abstract: A method for detecting a fault in a robot joint includes the steps of: performing a first torque measurement at the robot joint to thereby obtain a first set of torque values; calculating a first distribution characteristic reflecting a distribution of the first set of torque values; performing a second torque measurement at the robot joint to thereby obtain a second set of torque values; calculating a second distribution characteristic reflecting a distribution of the second set of torque values; and comparing the first and the second distribution characteristics to determine whether a fault is present or not. A difference in the distributions of torque measurements is a robust fault indicator that makes use of the repetitive behavior of the system.

  • Publication number: 20190357449
    Abstract: A flexible layered fabric sheet comprising a porous front layer and a pre-seeded substrate layer, where the seeds are in-between the two layers (rather than at the back of the substrate layer), for supporting root growth, the two layers together having an upper and lower edge and being attached together with one or more non-continuous seams between the upper and lower edges, which seams have a component of direction parallel to the upper and/or lower edge, and wherein the non-continuous seams enable water to exit the layered fabric sheet at its lower edge, and the non-continuous seams further serve to slow water flow through the water sheet. The seams also serve to keep the two layers from separating which would hamper the penetration of the sapling through the front porous layer, and thus stunt growth.

  • Patent number: 9167754
    Abstract: The invention refers to a greenhouse screen comprising strips of film material that are interconnected by a yarn framework of transverse threads and longitudinal threads to form a continuous product, wherein the yarn framework is thermally bonded to at least one side of the strips of film material, wherein also those parts of the yarn framework that is thermally bonded to the strips have liquid-transporting capacity by capillary action. The amount of yarn in the yarn framework interconnecting and holding the strips can herewith be reduced.

  • Patent number: 9123837
    Abstract: A semiconductor radiation detector includes a bulk layer of semiconductor material. On a first side of said bulk layer is an arrangement of field electrodes and a collection electrode for collecting radiation-induced signal charges from said bulk layer. A radiation shield exists on a second side of said bulk layer, opposite to said first side, which radiation shield selectively overlaps the location of said collection electrode.

  • Publication number: 20150244874
    Abstract: According to one aspect of the teachings herein, one or more messages are sent within or from an IP Multimedia Subsystem, IMS, network, to indicate the communication failure of an IMS node supporting a given IMS call session. Advantageously, the one or more messages includes a detection time of the communication failure—e.g., a timestamp—that provides a precision or resolution suitable for adapting a Charging Data Record, CDR, for the affected IMS call session. For example, charges for a portion of the IMS call session are adapted according to the detection time. More broadly, messages indicating the communication failure indication and the corresponding detection time may be exchanged between IMS nodes, e.g., to prompt session termination(s) and/or may be sent to online or offline charging or billing systems, to prevent over-charging.

  • Publication number: 20130100863
    Abstract: The present invention concern methods and apparatuses for transporting and using time zone information in an internet protocol multimedia subsystem, IMS, network. When a call session control function, CSCF, node receives a request message related to a user equipment, UE, the CSCF node retrieves and stores time zone information associated with the UE. The time zone information is sent by the CSCF node to at least one other IMS network node, which is then able to support time zone based services and/or charging associated with the UE. The CSCF node may optionally create an Attribute Value Pair, AVP, including the stored time zone information and send a charging message including the AVP to a charging node, to enable usage of the time zone information in charging.
