  • Patent number: 10348040
    Abstract: A modular electrical connector with separately shielded signal conductor pairs. The connector may be assembled from modules, each containing a pair of signal conductors with surrounding partially or fully conductive material. Modules of different sizes may be assembled into wafers, which are then assembled into a connector. Wafers may include lossy material. In some embodiments, shielding members of two mating connectors may each have compliant members along their distal portions, such that, the shielding members engage at points of contact at multiple locations, some of which are adjacent the mating edge of each of the mating shielding members.

  • Patent number: 10317080
    Abstract: A liner panel for use in a combustor for a gas turbine engine includes a forward region including a multiple of effusion passages each directed at an orientation consistent with a local swirl direction of combustion gases. Another liner panel for use in a combustor for a gas turbine engine includes a forward region forward of a dilution passage and an aft region aft of the forward region. The forward region includes a multiple of effusion passages each directed generally circumferentially. The aft region includes a multiple of effusion passages each directed at an orientation generally axially. A method of cooling a wall assembly within a combustor of a gas turbine engine includes orienting a multiple of effusion passages within a forward region consistent with a local swirl direction of combustion gases.

  • Publication number: 20190002006
    Abstract: A gyroscopically-responsive power assisted moment arm is disclosed for use in connection with vehicles such as load carrying devices. A moment arm extends to a pivot point such that when a longitudinal force is applied at the moment arm, a sensor senses such force and outputs an energizing signal to a motor to drive a wheel. If a rotational or vertical force is applied to the moment arm, the motor need not be driven. According to the invention, therefore, a power assist can be provided to a user to drive a wheel in a desired direction of transport while not causing drive during tipping or unloading of the load carrying portion of the vehicle. Such an apparatus can be advantageously applied to a power assisted wheelbarrow, as one exemplary application.

  • Patent number: 10044735
    Abstract: A system and method is disclosed for validating the authenticity of communications between users using message transmission systems. The system is configured to be independent of the message transmission system and is configured to determine a verification status associated with the message sender, the message recipients, or both. Based on the assigned verification status, the system generates notifications which are transmitted to at least one of the parties to the message, depending on the verification status, thereby providing a representation of the authenticity of the message. In certain embodiments, the system is configured to prompt user actions to be taken at remote devices, such as mobile phones and computers based on the verification statuses.

  • Patent number: 7015796
    Abstract: A device for weaning an addiction includes a housing, an indicator, a processor, and an actuator. The processor is configured to deliver a state signal to the indicator under control of an algorithm. The state indicates either an armed state or a wait state. The actuator is supported by the housing and is communicatively coupled to the processor. In response to actuation of the actuator, the algorithm delivers the state signal indicative of the wait state until the timing signal satisfies a threshold value. If actuated after the timing signal satisfies the threshold value, the algorithm delivers the state signal indicative of the armed state and increases the threshold value. A method for weaning an addiction such as a smoking habit includes the steps of providing a device as above, enabling the user to seek permission from the device, and selectively indicating permissions to the user.
