  • Publication number: 20200007975
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for enabling adaptive audio signal alteration are described. When an input audio signal is received, a determination of whether the user of an audio device hears the input audio signal is performed based upon brain activity of the user. A determination of whether the user is distracted by the audio signal is performed based upon sensor measurements indicating a physical state of the user. In response to determining that the user hears the input audio signal and that the input audio signal causes the user to be distracted, a determination of configuration parameter(s) is performed. An alteration of audio signal(s) is caused based upon the configuration parameter(s) to obtain modified version(s) of the audio signal(s) that are intended to address the distraction caused by the input audio signal, and output audio signals are output, where the output audio signals include the modified versions.

  • Patent number: 10494125
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a device in a filling machine, said filling machine comprising a filling pipe for supplying liquid food to the tube of packaging material, a pipe for supplying pressurized sterile air to the tube of packaging material, and a gasket for sealing against the tube of packaging material and any pipes inside the tube, for creating an overpressure in the tube. The device further comprises a first pressure gauge for measuring a first pressure inside the pipe at a location upstream from the tube, a device for determining an air mass flow in the pipe, and a control unit for receiving the measured parameters, where the control unit is adapted to calculate the pressure in the tube based on the air mass flow and the first pressure, according to a first pre-established relationship. The invention also relates to a method being implemented by the device.

  • Publication number: 20190354663
    Abstract: A computing device for authenticating a user is provided. The computing device is operative to display a first text to the user, acquire a representation of the user subvocalizing a part of the first text, derive a user phrasing signature from the acquired representation, and authenticate the user in response to determining that the user phrasing signature and a reference phrasing signature fulfill a similarity condition. Optionally, the computing device may be further operative to determine if the user is authorized to read the first text. Further optionally, the computing device may be operative to reveal obfuscated parts of the first text in response to determining that the user is authorized to read the first text, or to discontinue displaying the first text, or to obfuscate at least part of the first text, in response to determining that the user is not authorized to read the first text.

  • Publication number: 20190272364
    Abstract: A computing device (300) for authenticating a user (110), such as a mobile phone, a smartphone, a tablet, or the like, is provided. The computing device is operative to acquire a representation of a melody generated by the user, and authenticate the user in response to determining that the acquired representation of the user-generated melody and a representation of a reference melody fulfil a similarity condition. The user-generated melody may either be vocalized or subvocalized. If the melody is vocalized, the representation is derived from audio data captured by a microphone (102). If the melody is subvocalized, the representation is derived from nerve signals captured by sensors attached to the throat (111) of the user, or from a video sequence acquired from a camera (103), the video sequence capturing one or more body parts (111-115) of the user subvocalizing the melody, by magnifying motions of the one or more body parts which are correlated with the subvocalized melody.

  • Publication number: 20190248847
    Abstract: A recombinant spider silk protein, consisting of no more than 800 amino acids, comprising a set of domains arranged according to the formula (NT)-REP-CT, wherein: the optional NT-domain, if present, comprises a sequence of 100 to 160 amino-acid residues derived from the N-terminal domain of a spider silk protein; the REP-domain comprises a sequence of 30 to 600 amino acid residues derived from the repetitive segment of a spider silk protein; and the CT-domain comprises a sequence of 70 to 120 amino acid residues derived from the C-terminal domain of a spider silk protein selected from: a sequence of 72 to 110 amino acid residues derived from the C-terminal domain of a spider silk protein, wherein the sequence comprises at least 7 residues independently selected from K, R, E and D; a sequence having at least 85% identity to SEQ ID NO: 15 or any one of SEQ ID NO:s 62-65 or 67-73; and a sequence having at least 70% identity to SEQ.

  • Patent number: 10352597
    Abstract: An evaporator for an absorption heat pump or a single coolant cooling process comprises a number of stacked plates provided with a pressed pattern to hold the plates on a distance from one another to form a heat exchanging strip, vapor leading spaces and outer walls, the heat exchanging strip being designed such that flow channels are formed by internal surfaces of the strip, said flow channels connecting a heat carrier inlet and a heat carrier outlet, wherein a coolant forms a falling film on external surfaces of the heat carrier channels by being provided above the heat carrier channels by a coolant inlet, wherein coolant being vaporized from the external surfaces by heat from a heat carrier flowing from the inlet to the outlet rapidly enters the vapor leading spaces. The vapor leading spaces are provided between the heat exchanging strip and the outer walls.

  • Patent number: 9377033
    Abstract: A gerotor pump including a housing which includes a first supply socket and a second supply socket, an inner rotor, and an outer rotor rotatably located relative the housing. The inner rotor is located within the outer rotor, lobes of the inner and the outer rotors are engaged, and the inner rotor is centered around a rotational axis which is eccentric from an axis of rotation of the outer rotor. A pressure chamber with a high pressure and a low pressure section is defined between the inner and outer rotors. The inner rotor is rotatably arranged on a shaft cylinder which is fixed at one end of a central drive shaft of the pump and is centered about the rotational axis, whereby the inner rotor wanders in the outer rotor when the central drive shaft is turned. The inner rotor is provided with radial supply conduits extending from the pressure chambers to the shaft cylinder.
