  • Publication number: 20220129152
    Abstract: Techniques for processing I/O operations in a data storage system may include: receiving I/O operations directed to a logical device associated with a service level specifying a target I/O response time goal; receiving a input identifying whether to calculate an observed I/O response time for the logical device using only an internal processing time associated with processing performed within the data storage system when servicing I/O operations directed to the logical device; determining, in accordance with the input and the I/O operations directed to the logical device, the observed I/O response time for the logical device; determining a service level violation for the first logical device whereby the observed I/O response time violates the service level; and responsive to determining the service level violation whereby the observed I/O response time violates the service level, performing processing to alleviate or remove the first service level violation.

  • Publication number: 20220083198
    Abstract: A wearable display system can automatically recognize a physical remote or a device that the remote serves using computer vision techniques. The wearable system can generate a virtual remote with a virtual control panel viewable and interactable by user of the wearable system. The virtual remote can emulate the functionality of the physical remote. The user can select a virtual remote for interaction, for example, by looking or pointing at the parent device or its remote control, or by selecting from a menu of known devices. The virtual remote may include a virtual button, which is associated with a volume in the physical space. The wearable system can detect that a virtual button is actuated by determining whether a portion of the user's body (e.g., the user's finger) has penetrated the volume associated with the virtual button.

  • Publication number: 20210406224
    Abstract: A cloud-native global file system is augmented to include a file exporter (or, more generally, a file export tool) that facilitates an enterprise customer's use of a cloud-native tool that would otherwise be unable to operate against the global file system's underlying file system representation. In a typical use case, the file exporter is configured to extract in a native object format and to an unencrypted target (e.g., an S3 bucket, an Azure storage account, and the like) all or a portion of a volume's data from the underlying file system representation. In this manner, the exporter creates a copy of the data set that the enterprise user can then leverage against the desired cloud-native tool or other cloud services that are not under the management or control of the global file system service provider.

  • Publication number: 20210381921
    Abstract: Capillary-based pressure threshold sensors are provided for liquids that exploit the properties of hydrophobic, superhydrophobic, oleophobic and amphiphobic porous membranes to detect when fluid passes through the membrane in the event of the pressure across the membrane rising above the breakthrough pressure of a fluid. Example implementations are provided of different configurations for a capillary-based pressure threshold sensor, and of how a capillary-based pressure threshold sensor is used in a medication delivery device or other fluid delivery devices to detect occlusion or other fluid flow condition.

  • Patent number: 11191392
    Abstract: An insulated container assembly, comprises a container body, including an inner wall and an outer wall coupled at a top of the container body and separated by a vacuum gap, and a lid that is reversibly attachable to the container body. The lid includes a vacuum insert; and a sleeve encompassing the vacuum insert, the sleeve configured to facilitate attachment of the lid to the container body, and further configured to generate a seal between the vacuum insert and the inner wall of the container body such that a base of the vacuum insert is exposed to a central cavity of the container body when the lid is fully attached to the container body. In this way, the entire central cavity may be surrounded by vacuum insulation, thus improving the thermal properties of the insulated container assembly.

  • Publication number: 20210336875
    Abstract: A first router generates session establishment metrics for use in network path selection. For example, a plurality of routers connect a client device to a network service instance hosted by a server. A first router is connected to the network service instance via first and second paths. The first router receives session performance requirements for a session between the client device and the network service instance. The first router forwards, along the first path, network traffic for the session by modifying a first packet of the session to include a session identifier for the session. The first router determines that session establishment metrics for the session do not satisfy the session performance requirements. In response, the first router forwards, along the second path, the network traffic for the session by modifying a second packet of the session to include the session identifier for the session.

  • Publication number: 20210263517
    Abstract: Systems and methods for stabilizing the steering and throttle of a radio-controlled (RC) vehicle are described herein. More specifically, sensors and circuitry are configured to control the wheel speed and wheel direction of a RC vehicle based on rotational information. In operation, one or more sensors may be configured to receive angular rotational information associated with a rotation of the RC vehicle. The rotational information may define a rotation of the RC vehicle around one or more axes of the RC vehicle. The circuitry may be configured to receive the angular rotation information associated with the rotation of the RC vehicle from the one or more sensors, and control a wheel speed and/or a wheel direction of at least one wheel of the RC vehicle based at least in part on (i) command data received from a controller associated with the RC vehicle and (ii) the received angular rotation information.

  • Patent number: 11061557
    Abstract: Touchscreen-enabled devices are provided to display images of either real or virtual environments, the devices having at least one user interface including a graphical overlay laid over the images for navigating the environments. The device can interpret gestures made by a single finger of the user on the touchscreen as commands to achieve intended maneuvers such as translations of the point of view and rotations of the point of view within the displayed environment. This allows for one-finger navigation of the environment. The elevational angle of the viewpoint may be tilted above or below horizontal as the viewpoint approaches topographical features within the displayed environment, and may return to horizontal after transitioning to a level surface.

  • Publication number: 20210187676
    Abstract: A system and method for drilling a hole in a vehicle structure and installing a fastener in the hole. A drill plate having openings and associated machine-readable elements is positioned on the structure. A drill gun is positioned in a particular opening and reads hole information from the associated element, and a computer determines whether the drill gun is properly set-up to drill the hole. A fastener insertion gun is positioned in the particular opening and reads fastener information from the element, and the computer determines whether the hole has been drilled and, if so, whether the fastener insertion gun is properly set-up to insert the fastener. A fastener delivery subsystem stores, tracks, and delivers fasteners to the fastener insertion gun. A system computer monitors the drilling of every hole, the insertion of every fastener, and the overall operation of the fastener delivery subsystem.

  • Publication number: 20210114077
    Abstract: The principles of the present invention further provide both a shaped metal container and its preforms that exhibit a rounded grain structure characteristic created by an annealing process and a method for making a shaped metal container. The process of making said metal container results in a quicker process time and uses less metals (at least 10% metal weight savings), thus allowing for a decrease in the costs of making such shaped metal containers. A shaped metal container may include work hardened rolled sheet-metal defining a sidewall, an opening, and a base, where at least one section along the sidewall has grains with an average aspect ratio less than about 4 to 1.
