  • Patent number: 10679425
    Abstract: In an AR environment in which the pointing direction of the video camera is slaved to field technician motion to capture a video signal within a camera FOV of an object at arm's length from the technician and remotely-generated hand gestures for manipulation of the object are overlaid on the video signal to instruct the technician in manipulation of the object, a customer-defined key code and FOV limitations are used to exclude portions of a scene for data capture and transmission compliance. If the video camera pointing direction does not satisfy an alignment condition to a marker in the scene, the camera is controlled to exclude at least a portion of the camera FOV that lies outside a user-defined allowable FOV from capture within the video signal. The customer-defined key code includes at least technician identification, marker pairing and specified tolerance fields that define the allowable FOV.

  • Patent number: 10670648
    Abstract: Generally discussed herein are systems, devices, and methods for determining if a circuit is acting improperly. A system can include a module to receive proper performance values of a circuit, a module to receive improper performance values of the circuit, a module to compare actual circuit input characteristics (Xa) and actual circuit output characteristics (Ya) to X, Y, D, and Z to determine if the circuit is more likely operating properly or more likely operating improperly, and an alert module to, in response to determining the circuit is operating improperly, provide an alert to personnel indicating that the circuit is operating improperly or providing one or more signals to the circuit that cause the circuit to alter its current operation.

  • Patent number: 10542083
    Abstract: Generally discussed herein are systems and apparatuses for multi-mode collaboration between entities in different jurisdictions. According to an example a technique can include determining a location of a remote communication device by at least one of a global positioning system (GPS), low frequency (LF) atomic time radio, earth magnetic signature, internet protocol (IP) address, and cell phone tower triangulation, determine regulations regarding communication from an internal network to the remote device based on the determined location, and configure the remote device to transmit and receive communications in a manner compliant with the determined regulations including one of voice over internet protocol (VOIP) communication, hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) communication, text communication, voice communication, video communication, and augmented reality communication.

    Abstract: In an AR environment in which the pointing direction of the video camera is slaved to field technician motion to capture a video signal within a camera FOV of an object at arm's length from the technician and remotely-generated hand gestures for manipulation of the object are overlaid on the video signal to instruct the technician in manipulation of the object, a customer-defined key code and FOV limitations are used to exclude portions of a scene for data capture and transmission compliance. If the video camera pointing direction does not satisfy an alignment condition to a marker in the scene, the camera is controlled to exclude at least a portion of the camera FOV that lies outside a user-defined allowable FOV from capture within the video signal. The customer-defined key code includes at least technician identification, marker pairing and specified tolerance fields that define the allowable FOV.

  • Publication number: 20190084739
    Abstract: A zip tie operable with one hand comprising a head having a channel defined by a first top wall, a second top wall, a bottom wall, a first side wall, a second sidewall, a front wall and an end wall. The first top wall and the second top wall are configured to cooperate to provide a top access to the channel. Teeth are disposed on an inner wall of the channel transverse to a longitudinal axis of the channel and an elongated member extends from the head. The elongated member has a distal section having a serrated section, a starter cord and a pull tab. The starter cord is insertable into the channel typically through the top access and the pull tag enables pulling of the elongated member through the channel while the one or more teeth engage with the serrated section to prevent the zip tie from getting undone.

  • Publication number: 20180116341
    Abstract: The present invention is for a slip resistant shoelace comprising a shoelace tube and one or more friction inducing features such as a plurality of bumps made or rubber or silicone disposed over at least a portion of the length of the shoelace tube. The bumps can also be disposed over a rope in any desired manner to make it a slippage resistant rope. The plurality of bumps, when come in contact with each other or with any other surfaces in a tied knot, offer higher co-efficient of friction and thus resist slipping of the knot. A knot tied with the slip-resistant shoelace or the slip-resistant rope prevents slipping and from getting loosened and untied inadvertently.

  • Patent number: 9888744
    Abstract: The present invention is for a slip resistant shoelace comprising a shoelace tube and one or more friction inducing features such as a plurality of beads placed inside the shoelace tube. The plurality of beads of the shoelace interlock with each other while in a knot and thus resist slipping of the knot in the slip resistant shoe lace. The interlocking occurs as one or more beads of the plurality of beads of one section of the slip resistant shoelace fit in space available between two consecutive beads of the plurality of beads of another section of the slip resistant shoelace which are passing over each other in the knot. The interlocking prevents the shoelace from getting loosened and untied inadvertently. The slip resistant shoelace can be tied and untied in the traditional manner.

  • Patent number: 9412280
    Abstract: A system for delivery of payload at a precise location by autonomous delivery vehicle. A machine-readable unique identifier is laid at a place where a user wants delivery of an item. User opens a precise delivery app on smartphone, activates the scanner and standing near the unique identifier scans it. Precise delivery app reads the unique identity of the unique identifier and collects the geophysical location of the smartphone. Third party system feeds this information of the target unique identifier to the autonomous vehicle. The autonomous delivery vehicle includes a first prior art navigator and a second scanner navigator. The autonomous vehicle determines its route to the approximate location of the target unique identifier with the help of the first prior art navigator and the second scanner navigator scans every unique identifier that may be present around that location and guides the autonomous vehicle to the target unique identifier.
