  • Patent number: 10387670
    Abstract: Methods and associated data processing system for handling sensitive data required by an application in a secure computer system. The secure computer identifies sensitive data in one or more data aspects of a request message. The secure computer system tokenizes the sensitive data in the one or more data aspects by replacing the sensitive data with tokenized data and stores a mapping between the sensitive data and the tokenized data in the secure computer system. The secure computer system sends the request message to an external computer system. After the request message is sent to the external computer system, the secure computer system receives a response message from the external computer system. The response message includes annotations for the tokenized data with transform instructions for the tokenized data. The secure computer system replaces the tokenized data with the sensitive data and performs the transform instructions on the sensitive data.

  • Patent number: 10382962
    Abstract: A network authentication system with dynamic key generation that facilitates the establishment of both endpoint identity, as well as a secure communication channel using a dynamically-generated key between two end devices (potentially on separate local area networks). An interactive or non-interactive authentication protocol is used to establish the identity of the target end device, and dynamic key generation is used to establish a shared symmetric session key for creating an encrypted communication channel between the end devices.

  • Publication number: 20190222926
    Abstract: Embodiments are described for a high-frequency waveguide that improves the performance of large-scale surround sound and immersive audio environments. A horn waveguide is configured to be asymmetric about one of a vertical axis and horizontal axis of the waveguide to form an asymmetric horn waveguide. A spherical enclosure surrounds the asymmetric horn waveguide to form a horn speaker, and a three-axis mounting system is configured to fix the horn speaker to one of a wall or ceiling surface of the venue, wherein the mounting system facilitates rotating the horn speaker to a location that provides maximum coverage of the venue within the passband of the asymmetric horn waveguide.

  • Publication number: 20190217189
    Abstract: A virtual reality (VR) system is provided that mixes real-world tactile stimulation with audiovisual stimulation provided through VR headgear. The VR system uses three sets of components. The first set comprises mobile objects that are tracked using motion tracking LEDs. The second set comprises stationary objects that are tracked using wires connected to an I/O controller to a game server. The third set comprises objects that are not tracked at all, but which are depicted with a thematic rendering in the VR world. A grid is set up that provides discrete locations for setting up both stationary and mobile components. A VR game server serves constructs of a VR world having thematically-embellished virtual objects that appear to be located in positions and orientations that match the positions and orientations of the components of the first, second, and third sets.

  • Patent number: 10345809
    Abstract: An event is detected that impairs a confidence level of the autonomous vehicle in progressing through a current route. In response to detecting the event, the autonomous vehicle communicates information about the event to a remote source of guidance. The autonomous vehicle can receive instructions from the remote source of guidance on how to handle the event. The autonomous vehicle can then implement the instructions to handle the event while it operates.

  • Publication number: 20190200525
    Abstract: A crop feeding apparatus having a roller through which the fingers are extended and retracted, has fingers that are formed with tubular finger bodies extending between an inner end configured to be mounted on a finger drive arrangement of the crop feeding apparatus and an outer end of the finger body configured to protrude from the outer peripheral wall of the roller. A breakaway region is formed in the finger body by diametrically opposed slots which are circumferentially elongated to define a shear plane perpendicular to the long axis of the finger body. A slot axis extending between opposing ends of each slot is parallel to the axis of the crop feeding apparatus. The finger body is also hardened by heat treating, and by applying a wear resistant coating over the heat treated body.

  • Publication number: 20190195955
    Abstract: An electrical device includes a memory storing a value indicative the remaining available rated capacity of one or more batteries. The stored value is changed in use to reflect reducing capacity. The initial stored value is chosen so that there is a very high (e.g. >99.9%) confidence that the one or more batteries will provide at least the capacity indicated by the initial stored value. This reduces the chance of failure during emergency procedures. The one or more batteries may be integral to the electrical device. An override facility is provided.

  • Patent number: 10327073
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure provide methods, apparatuses, and systems for closed-loop respiration entrainment based on spatialized audio signals. According to an aspect, based on a determined rate of a subject's respiration, spatialization of a virtual sound source is altered to simulate a distance or directionality to the subject. Simulating the distance, directionality, and/or source characteristics comprises processing sounds of the virtual sound source to generate a perception of the sounds being heard from one or more distances or directions with reference to the subject. The altered virtual sound source attempts to regulate the rate of respiration of the subject. An audio device outputs the sounds of the altered virtual sound source.
