  • Patent number: 11190531
    Abstract: A secure communication management (SCM) computer device for providing secure data connections in an aviation environment which, includes safety of flight information, is provided. The SCM computer device includes a processor in communication with a memory. The processor is programmed to receive, from a first user computer device, a first data message for a first aircraft. The first data message is in a standardized data format. The processor is also programmed to analyze the first data message for potential cybersecurity threats. If the determination is that the first data message does not contain a cybersecurity threat, the processor is further programmed to convert the first data message into a first data format associated with the first aircraft and transmit the converted first data message to the first aircraft using a first communication protocol associated with the first aircraft.

  • Patent number: 11189174
    Abstract: Method and apparatus are disclosed for accelerometer-based external sound monitoring for voice controlled autonomous parking. An example vehicle includes a body control module, an infotainment head unit, and an autonomy unit. The example body control module communicatively couples to a mobile device. The example infotainment head unit communicatively couples to an accelerometer mounted on a window of the vehicle. The example autonomy unit autonomously parks the vehicle in response to a first key word detected by the accelerometer when (i) a button is activated on the infotainment head unit and (ii) a message from the mobile device is being periodically received.

  • Publication number: 20210362894
    Abstract: A handheld vacuum sealer device is provided for drawing a vacuum to remove air from a bag or container to prolong freshness of food stored in the bag or container. The sealer device includes an activation button to initiate drawing the vacuum that is activated at the same time a user pushes downwardly on the sealer device to form a seal between the sealer device and the bag or container. A charging cradle for recharging the sealer device is also provided that charges the sealer device regardless of the orientation of the sealer device when the sealer device is placed within the charging cradle.

  • Patent number: 11180098
    Abstract: Method and apparatus are disclosed for monitoring of vehicle window vibrations for voice-command recognition. An example vehicle includes a window, an outer layer, a vibration sensor coupled to the window to detect audio vibrations, an audio actuator coupled to the outer layer to vibrate the outer layer, and a controller. The controller is to detect a voice command from a user via the vibration sensor, identify an audio response based upon the voice command, and emit the audio response to the user via the audio actuator.

  • Patent number: 11182977
    Abstract: The described technology includes a depth ray shader stored in memory and executable to receive a depth map defining a depth in association with each pixel in a three-dimensional scene and define a color gradient between a first pixel value and a second pixel value, wherein each sequential step in the color gradient between the first pixel value and the second pixel is assigned to a corresponding depth of increasing magnitude relative to a reference point. The depth ray shader is further executable to provide an instruction to a graphics engine to cause the graphics engine to apply a depth ray layer to a select portion of the three-dimensional scene, the depth ray layer altering each pixel in the selected portion to assume a pixel value defined within the color gradient to correspond to a depth of the pixel specified by the depth map.

  • Publication number: 20210356927
    Abstract: A method for operating a temperature control system for a structure is disclosed. The method includes monitoring historical data, and controlling the temperature control system to inject outdoor air into the supply duct of the temperature control system based upon historical data. Some embodiments of the system include monitoring an interior and exterior temperature of a structure, defining a first time range and a second time range, associating one or more operating parameters of the temperature control system with the first time range and the second time range, monitoring operational time and operational load of the cooling system for the first time range, and controlling a ventilation subsystem during the second time range based upon the monitored operational time and operational load of the cooling subsystem for the first time range, and the one or more operating parameters of the cooling subsystem associated with the second time range.

  • Publication number: 20210355045
    Abstract: A composting apparatus comprises a bin, an access panel, an aerator, a water content sensor, a valve, and a composting controller. The bin stores organic materials and compost therein. The access panel, disposed over an opening within the bin, allows access to an interior of the bin. The aerator, disposed within the bin, allows air into the bin to aerate the organic materials and compost therein. The water content sensor, disposed within the bin, senses a quantity of water within the organic materials and compost within the bin. The valve, coupled to a water line, controls a quantity of water added to the bin. The composting controller, coupled to the water content sensor and the water valve, actuates the water valve to control a quantity of water added to the bin based on the sensed quantity of water within the organic materials and compost.

  • Publication number: 20210349030
    Abstract: A method of smoothing spectral data recorded by a spectrometer including successively fitting a plurality of spline curves to the spectral data, each spline curve having a different number of knots. A knot position of each knot, other than end point knots, in each spline curve is determined based upon a measure of fit of points of a previously fitted one of the spline curves having fewer knots to the spectral data. The method further includes selecting one of the spline curves as a smoothed data curve of the spectral data based upon a model selection criterion.

  • Patent number: 11172430
    Abstract: Various aspects of the present disclosure generally relate to wireless communication. In some aspects, a user equipment may determine a resource allocation, from a resource set, for a response message using a resource allocation selection procedure. In some aspects, the user equipment may transmit the response message using the resource allocation and based at least in part on determining the resource allocation. In some aspects, the user equipment may determine, using an implicit resource mapping procedure and before a radio resource control connection establishment, a resource allocation for a redundancy scheme response message based at least in part on a remaining minimum system information (RMSI) value. Numerous other aspects are provided.
