  • Publication number: 20210049433
    Abstract: According to a first aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method of making an optically readable element, the method comprising: providing one or more optically readable structures in or on a body, a strain being applied to the one or more optically readable structures as a result of an interaction between the body and the one or more optically readable structures; the one or more optically readable structures each having an intrinsic band structure prior to application of the strain, and wherein the applied strain changes that intrinsic band structure; and wherein the interaction is such that the strain is maintained, after the element has been made, without the need for an external influence.

  • Publication number: 20210048898
    Abstract: A planar (two-dimensional, XY location) touch sensor may include a knitted structure and supplementary method of sensing detects human touch on a fabric surface. This sensor may be fully knitted and detect the continuous planar location and contact force of human touch along the surface of the structure. The fabric may conform to any arbitrary surface and may be a rectangle for touch pad applications. This sensor may be used for applications that include robotics and human-machine interaction, smart garments and wearables, as well as medical textiles and flexible embedded sensors. This touch sensor may require as few as only two electrode connections from the fabric to sense both planar touch and pressure, which allows it to work in areas with limited space that allow for limited complexity for wiring.

  • Publication number: 20210001072
    Abstract: A respiatory mask includes a frame and a cushion module. The frame can include a front wall having a vent and/or a gas inlet opening and a collar extending away from the front wall. The collar surrounds the vent and/or the gas inlet opening. The cushion module comprises a cushion and a housing, which is made of a material more rigid than the cushion. The housing defines a connection opening. A friction coupling selectively couples the cushion module to the frame and comprises an elastomeric friction member coupled to a portion of the housing that defines the connection opening. In some arrangements, an outer surface of the friction member is exposed when the cushion module is coupled to the frame. In some arrangements, the housing extends through the peripheral surface.

  • Publication number: 20200409352
    Abstract: A vehicle computing system may identify a scenario in an environment that violates an operating constraint. The vehicle computing system may request remote guidance from a guidance system of a service computing device. The vehicle computing system may receive input from the guidance system including one or more waypoints and/or associated orientations for the vehicle to navigate through the scenario. The vehicle computing system may be configured to validate the input. A validation may include processing the input to determine whether the waypoint(s) and/or orientation(s) associated therewith may cause the vehicle to violate a safety protocol. Based on a determination that the input will not cause the vehicle to violate the safety protocol, the vehicle computing system may control the vehicle according to the input, such as by causing a drive system to operate the vehicle to each waypoint at the associated orientation.

  • Publication number: 20200409368
    Abstract: A vehicle computing system may identify an obstruction along a route of travel and may connect to a service computing device for guidance. The service computing device may include a guidance system configured to receive waypoint and/or orientation input from an operator. The operator may evaluate the scenario and determine one or more waypoints and/or associated orientations for the vehicle to navigate the scenario. In some examples, the guidance system may validate the waypoint(s) and/or associated orientation(s). The service computing device may send the waypoint(s) and/or associated orientation(s) to the vehicle computing system. The vehicle computing system may validate the waypoint(s) and/or associated orientation(s) and, based on the validation, control the vehicle according to the input. Based on a determination that the vehicle has navigated the scenario, the guidance system may release vehicle guidance back to the vehicle computing system.

  • Publication number: 20200409670
    Abstract: Software for a computer system may be automatically generated to reduce costs. Software may be automatically generated using a set of software components where each component may have one or more input properties and one or more output properties. A property may correspond to a type of data (e.g., a customer ID) used by the computer system. A graph may be created from the components where the graph includes component nodes for the components and property nodes for the input and output properties. To automatically generate software for a task, a task specification may be received that includes a task input property and a task output property. A path on the graph may be determined from the task input property and the task output property, and software for accomplishing the task may be generated using components on the path. The software may then be executed or stored for later execution.

  • Patent number: 10878796
    Abstract: A system and method for remote active noise correction at a remote device includes receiving, at the remote device, an ambient noise signal from a microphone. The remote device is disposed along a processing and transmission path between the microphone and a headphone. The processing and transmission path exhibit non-zero latency. The remote device further analyzes the ambient noise signal to generate an anti-noise signal, performs a first correction of the anti-noise signal for a headphone interface effect, performs a second correction of the anti-noise signal for the non-zero latency of the processing and transmission path between the microphone and the headphone. The remote device then transmits the corrected anti-noise signal to the headphone.

  • Publication number: 20200396782
    Abstract: A communication system and method for supporting a plurality of vehicle-to-everything radio access technologies (V2X RATs) is provided. The communication system configured to support multiple V2X RATs transmits, using a first V2X RAT, an indication of its availability to support an interworking function between the plurality of V2X RATs. The communication system receives an instruction to provide the interworking function between different V2X RATs. The interworking function may be incorporated in a vehicle that is joined to a platoon configured to use a first V2X RAT, and provide the interworking function between the first and a second V2X RAT. The interworking function may be used to add further vehicles to the platoon that communicate using only the second V2X RAT.

  • Patent number: 10851911
    Abstract: A gas valve having a gas valve body having a valve and a valve seat both housed by the gas valve body. The valve may further include an armature housed by the gas valve body, a pole situated outside of the gas valve body so as to not be exposed to gas in the gas valve body. The pole may be positioned to be in magnetic communication with at least part of the armature through the gas valve body. The valve may further include a coil situated outside the gas valve body. The coil may be wound about the pole such that activation of the coil produces a magnetic flux that is carried to an end of the pole, through the gas valve body, and to the armature, resulting in movement of the armature, and movement of the valve between the open position and the closed position.
