  • Patent number: 10430574
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a computer-implemented platform for managing electronic endorsable instruments and electronic endorser verification information in order to validate endorser identity. A computer system receives an endorsable electronic instrument and a mobile phone number associated with a targeted potential endorser. The endorsable electronic instrument and a verification information request are sent to the mobile phone number by sending a link to a web-based application via SMS/MMS message. The endorsed electronic instrument and corresponding verification information are received and are associated to validate the endorsed instrument.

  • Patent number: 10422093
    Abstract: Methods for restoring tidal areas adjacent to a tidal water area are provided. The method can comprise: pumping water from the tidal water area; and directing a high-pressure water stream, using the water pumped from the tidal water area, to the bottom surface of the tidal water area during an incoming tide period. The high-pressure water stream impacts the bottom surface of the tidal water area with sufficient force to dislodge sediment from the bottom surface into the tidal water area.

  • Patent number: 10373136
    Abstract: An image of a check may be presented for payment in a banking system in place of the physical paper check. The check to be deposited can be collected from a depositor using a scanner. A web site, accessed through a depositor's web browser, can be used to drive the process of collecting the check, but in some contexts (e.g., in less popular computing environments, such as those that do not run the most popular operating systems), it is economically infeasible to obtain the certificates that would be used to allow a program executing in the web browser to control the scanner. Thus, a depositor can be instructed to capture and upload images of the check in the form of files, where the image files are then presented for payment through a banking system.

  • Publication number: 20190224413
    Abstract: An injection device comprising a housing (12) and a dose selector (16) to set a dose of medicament to be ejected from the injection device. A spring (20) coupled to the dose selector stores energy necessary for ejecting the dose from the injection device. A ratchet (25) arrangement is provided to rotationally couple a ratchet component and an internal surface of the housing in a coupled state and to allow relative rotation between the ratchet component and the internal surface of the housing in an uncoupled state. An over-torque feature (27) located between the dose selector and the spring is actuatable, when the rotation of the dose selector causes the charging force to exceed a defined limit, to reduce the charging force transferred from the dose selector to the spring. Both the ratchet component and the over-torque feature are provided on a single component (28).

  • Patent number: 10362402
    Abstract: A method of operating an audio system having first and second sources includes outputting a first audio signal from the first source on first and second speakers. In response to a listener input, the first audio signal and a second audio signal from the second source are output simultaneously on the first and second speakers. The first signal is output from each of the first and second speakers such that the first signal is perceived by a listener to originate from a first direction toward the listener. The second signal is output from each of the first and second speakers such that the second signal is perceived by the listener to originate from a second direction toward the listener. The second direction is offset at least ninety degrees from the first direction.

  • Publication number: 20190202551
    Abstract: A method of engaging a drive system with a rotating wheel of an aircraft landing gear is disclosed. A motor is operated to apply torque to a pinion so the pinion rotates. An engagement command is issued to an actuator at an engagement time, and the actuator operates the actuator in response to the engagement command to move the pinion from a neutral position to a contact position in which it contacts a rotating driven gear at an initial contact time, the rotating driven gear being mounted to a rotating wheel of an aircraft landing gear; then after the initial contact time operating the actuator to move the pinion further to a meshing position where the pinion meshes with the driven gear. A centre-to-centre distance between the pinion and the driven gear reduces as the pinion moves to the contact position and to the meshing position.

  • Publication number: 20190193845
    Abstract: The invention provides methods and systems for controlling speed of an aircraft during an autonomous pushback manoeuvre, i.e. under the aircraft's own power without a pushback tractor. The method includes applying a torque to at least one landing gear wheel of the aircraft, the torque being in a direction opposite to the backwards rolling direction of rotation of the landing gear wheel. The torque applied does not exceed a limit for ensuring aircraft longitudinal stability. For longitudinal stability the torque applied should not cause the aircraft to risk a tip-over event.

  • Patent number: 10323896
    Abstract: A flash redirecting recoil compensator for a firearm includes a compensator body that provides a platform for the rest of the components. The compensator body attaches with a firearm in order to reduce recoil force and redirect the muzzle flash away from the site of the shooter. An attachment chamber and a discharge chamber of the compensator body are positioned through a top portion of the compensator body from a rear face to a front face. The attachment chamber fastens the compensator body into the firearm while the discharge chamber provides space for the discharging bullet. At least two vectoring ports, which are traversed through the compensator body and into the discharge chamber, redirect hot gas and unspent propellants away from the firearm after the bullet is discharged as the redirection of the hot gas and unspent propellants reduce the recoil force and provide a clear shooting sight.

  • Patent number: 10325600
    Abstract: Examples disclosed herein provide the ability to identify the location of an individual within a room by using a combination of microphone arrays and voice pattern matching. In one example, a computing device may extract a voice detected by microphones of a microphone array located in a room, perform voice pattern matching to identify an individual associated with the extracted voice, and determine a location of the individual in the room based on an intensity of the voice detected individually by the microphones of the microphone array.

  • Publication number: 20190170720
    Abstract: An underwater camera and water quality monitoring system provides the capability of shooting video or time lapse photography together with recording water condition or quality measurements in an integrated device for stationary, submerged deployment in a body of water under study. The underwater camera and water quality monitoring system has a configurable delay from submerged deployment in the waterway until image/video recording and water quality measurement sampling begins, allowing aquatic life activity to resume in the vicinity after disruption of the system deployment. The monitoring device may be used in combination with recognition software utilizing artificial intelligence techniques to identify species or individuals observed during monitoring.
