  • Publication number: 20200334846
    Abstract: A volume of contents in a container of a work vehicle can be estimated in various examples. One example involves a system with a 3D sensor on a work vehicle, where the sensor captures images of a material in a container of the work vehicle. A processor device that is in communication with the 3D sensor determines a volume of the material in the container using the images.

  • Patent number: 10733752
    Abstract: A volume of contents in a container of a work vehicle can be estimated in various examples. One example involves a system with a 3D sensor on a work vehicle, where the 3D sensor captures images of the contents in a container of the work vehicle. The system also includes a sensor for detecting an angle of the container. A processor device that is in communication with the 3D sensor and the sensor determines a volume of the contents in the container using the images and the angle.

  • Publication number: 20190026914
    Abstract: A volume of contents in a container of a work vehicle can be estimates. For example, a system can include a 3D sensor on a work vehicle. The 3D sensor can capture multiple images of contents in a container of the work vehicle. The system can also include a sensor for detecting an angle of the 3D sensor with respect to a position of the container for at least some of the images. A processor device can be in communication with the 3D sensor and the sensor. A memory device can include instructions executable by the processor device for causing the processor device to determine a volume of the contents in the container using the images and the angle.

  • Publication number: 20060113150
    Abstract: A parking brake system including at least one braking unit actuated by at least one cable, a cylinder having a piston chamber and a rod chamber, a piston slidably received within the cylinder and having a rod connected thereto, the rod extending through the rod chamber and operably connected to the cable, a pressurized fluid source connected to the piston chamber, and a valve for controlling the flow of the fluid to the piston chamber, wherein the piston and rod move through the cylinder when the fluid pressurizes the piston chamber, thereby actuating the braking unit.

  • Publication number: 20050274580
    Abstract: A shape memory alloy actuator includes a housing, a plunger, a shaft, a resilient member, and a shape memory alloy component. The plunger is slidably but non-rotatably received in the housing and has a first locking component. The shaft has a second locking component. The resilient member is positioned to slidably urge the plunger into a disengagement position of the first and second locking components allowing rotation of the shaft. The shape memory alloy component is positioned to slidably urge the plunger into an engagement position of the first and second locking components, when the shape memory alloy component is heated, preventing rotation of the shaft. In one application, the first and second locking components are interdigitable vehicle-parking-brake latch teeth.

  • Publication number: 20050167211
    Abstract: An electric caliper assembly for a brake system is provided. The electric caliper assembly includes a housing defining a bore with a bridge extending therefrom, a first and a second friction element and a brake rotor disposed under the bridge, a piston having a flat outer surface for engaging the first friction element, an electric motor connected to a ballscrew mechanism for applying an axial load to the piston, a cap connected to the ball screw mechanism, and a universal connection between a spherical surface of the piston and a complimentary spherical surface of the cap for allowing a swiveling movement of the piston relative to the assembly. This swiveling movement allows the piston to engage the first friction element perpendicularly so that the load may be transmitted from the piston to the first friction element over the entire surface of the piston, maximizing the efficiency of the assembly.

  • Publication number: 20050144850
    Abstract: A roofing panel includes an insulation board and a laminate of a metal layer and a fabric layer attached to the board. The board has a quadrilateral shape defining four edges and the laminate is attached to the board such that the laminate overhangs at least two of the edges of the board. A roof is formed from a plurality of the roofing panels which are interconnected with one another such that an overhanging edge of one roofing panel overlies a non-overhanging edge of an adjacent roofing panel.

  • Publication number: 20050082908
    Abstract: An actuator for an electro-mechanical-brake motor assembly includes a housing surrounding a rotatable motor shaft presenting a longitudinal axis. A spring is non-rotatably supported on the housing. A latching device is non-rotatably supported by the housing. The latching device has a plurality of teeth. A latch gear is non-rotatably supported on the rotatable motor shaft and circumscribes the longitudinal axis and presents a plurality of axially facing angled teeth presenting a meshing engagement with the teeth of the latching device. The latching device is axially movable relative to the housing in response to magnetic force generated by the electric coil.

  • Patent number: 6699490
    Abstract: Prolonged parenteral release into the circulatory system of a cow of a bioactive bovine somatotropin at desirably effective levels can be achieved using novel compositions in which the bovine somatotropin is present in an aqueous liquid at a dose of at least about 150 mg and at a concentration of at least about 50 mg/ml. The aqueous bovine somatotropin formulation provides for the sustained release of bovine somatotropin into the circulatory system of the animal for greater than three (3) days.
