  • Publication number: 20190361843
    Abstract: In a distributed system, each of N machines receives a similarity search query through a linear communication orbit. The similarity search query includes token identifiers corresponding to tokens in a target document. Each machine, in response, identifies files that meet predefined similarity criteria with respect to the target document. Subsequent to receiving the similarity search query, the machine generates a first report, including a count of files stored at the machine that meet the predefined similarity criteria with respect to the target document, and/or information identifying a set of files that meet the predefined similarity criteria with respect to the target document; and sends the first report to a server through the linear communication orbit. The server produces a merged report presenting information with respect to files at a set of machines, including the N machines, that meet the predefined similarity criteria with respect to the target document.

  • Patent number: 8469383
    Abstract: A wheelchair includes a frame, and a front pivot arm pivotally mounted to the frame at a front pivot point, the front pivot arm having a caster for supporting the frame. A rear pivot arm is pivotally mounted to the frame at a rear pivot point, the rear pivot arm having a caster for supporting the frame. A ground engaging mid-wheel drive wheel is connected to the frame. A linkage connects the front and rear pivot arms to each other in a manner such that an upward or downward rotation of one of the pivot arms about its pivot point causes rotation of the other pivot arm about its pivot point in an opposite rotational direction.

  • Patent number: 8113531
    Abstract: A personal mobility vehicle includes an base unit having a frame and front and rear pivot arms pivotally mounted at respective front and rear pivot points. The front and rear pivot arms support casters. A drive unit having a ground engaging mid-wheel drive wheel is connected to the frame. A linkage connects the front and rear pivot arms to each other in a manner such that an upward or downward rotation of one of the pivot arms about its pivot point causes rotation of the other pivot arm about its pivot point in an opposite rotational direction. The base unit may also include a drive unit that is pivotally supported on the base unit by a torque arm and a suspension system that includes a suspension stop. The torque arm selectively disengages the suspension stop to allow movement of the front caster wheel in response to the terrain traversed.
