  • Publication number: 20190158465
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses enable deploying and executing a security policy on endpoints in a network. In an embodiment, a security orchestrator determines a set of endpoints in a network and determines transformed endpoints from the determined set of endpoints through an endpoint transformation process. The security orchestrator determines a connectivity vector for at least a first transformed endpoint and a second transformed endpoint, where the connectivity vector includes properties associated with the corresponding transformed endpoint. Using the properties from the connectivity vector of the first transformed endpoint, a security policy is generated and deployed to the first transformed endpoint. Based on a comparison of the connectivity vectors of the first and second transformed endpoints indicating a similarity between the first and second transformed endpoints, the security policy is further deployed to the second transformed endpoint.

  • Publication number: 20190129379
    Abstract: A display unit for a manually operated machine tool includes a display having windows and text each associated with and indicating positions of different axes of the manually operated machine tool which are manually adjustable. A memory stores configuration modes of the display including a stationary mode in which the windows and text provided in the display are each the same size and color, and at least one emphasis mode in which the window and/or text associated with one of the different axes is larger and/or a different color. A processor is configured to switch the display from using the stationary mode to using an emphasis mode based a position signal indicating that one of the different axes is being adjusted by manual operation of an operator such that the window and text associated with the axis being adjusted is emphasized on the display.

  • Patent number: 10263390
    Abstract: Described are various configurations of integrated wavelength lockers including asymmetric Mach-Zehnder interferometers (AMZIs) and associated detectors. Various embodiments provide improved wavelength-locking accuracy by using an active tuning element in the AMZI to achieve an operational position with high locking sensitivity, a coherent receiver to reduce the frequency-dependence of the locking sensitivity, and/or a temperature sensor and/or strain gauge to computationally correct for the effect of temperature or strain changes.

  • Publication number: 20190079539
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining the location of a vehicle are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method for localizing a vehicle includes driving over a first road segment, identifying by a first localization system a set of candidate road segments, obtaining vertical motion data while driving over the first road segment, comparing the obtained vertical motion data to reference vertical motion data associated with at least one candidate road segment, and identifying, based on the comparison, a location of the vehicle. The use of such localization methods and systems in coordination with various advanced vehicle systems such as, for example, active suspension systems or autonomous driving features, is contemplated.

  • Publication number: 20190072715
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented for heterogeneous integration of photonics and electronics with atomic layer deposition (ALD) bonding. One method includes operations for forming a compound semiconductor and for depositing (e.g., via atomic layer deposition) a continuous film of a protection material (e.g., Al2O3) on a first surface of the compound semiconductor. Further, the method includes an operation for forming a silicon on insulator (SOI) wafer, with the SOI wafer comprising one or more waveguides. The method further includes bonding the compound semiconductor at the first surface to the SOI wafer to form a bonded structure and processing the bonded structure. The protection material protects the compound semiconductor from acid etchants during further processing of the bonded structure.
