  • Patent number: 10336333
    Abstract: Methods and systems for improving operation of a vehicle driveline that includes an engine and an automatic transmission with a torque converter are presented. In one non-limiting example, the engine may be stopped while a vehicle in which the engine operates is rolling. A transmission coupled to the engine may be shifted as the vehicle rolls so that vehicle response may be improved if a driver requests an increase of engine torque.

  • Publication number: 20180342135
    Abstract: A processing system adapted for use in a gaming environment is configured to detect when a user might accidentally drop an input device, such as a handheld game controller. The processing system includes an input device, a processing unit and a warning unit. The input device has one or more pressure sensors operable to sense pressure inputs from a user. The processing unit is operable to identify an imminent dropping of the input device from measurements obtained by the pressure sensors. And the warning unit is operable to provide a warning to the user when the processing unit identifies an imminent drop of the input device.

  • Patent number: 7496398
    Abstract: The present invention provides for x-ray imaging and ultrasound imaging of a body region of interest in a spatially correlatable manner. The resultant x-ray and ultrasound images may be combinatively employed to provide three-dimensional information regarding a location of interest within the body, and is particularly apt for use in the analysis/biopsy of potential lesions and suspicious masses in a female breast. The invention provides for direct body contact by an ultrasound imaging head, as well as targeted ultrasound imaging of a selected portion of the region from which x-ray images are obtained. A user interface system facilitates various procedures including ultrasound guided needle biopsy procedures.
