  • Publication number: 20220050435
    Abstract: Automated systems and methods of using a smart end-effector tool (20) including an applicator (30) to apply a coating onto an object surface (2) (e.g., a wind blade) are provided. The smart tool (20) can process on-board sensor signals and update its working state with a remote robot controller (28) in real time and send instructions to the robot controller (28) to adjust the tool's travelling around the object surface (2) and optimize the applicator's (30) operation.

  • Publication number: 20220016774
    Abstract: Automated systems and methods of using a smart end-effector tool to prepare (e.g., scuffing, abrading, sanding, polishing, etc.) an object surface are provided. The smart tool can update its working state with a robot arm in real time, which in turn adjusts locomotion parameters to optimize the tool's working state on the object surface.

  • Publication number: 20210241125
    Abstract: A method includes receiving sensor information generated by a sensor embedded in an article of apparel. The method includes determining, based at least in part on the sensor information, a thermal comfort score indicative of a probability that a user of the article of apparel will be comfortable at a future time. The method also includes determining, based on the thermal comfort score, whether the user of the article of apparel is likely to be comfortable at the future time. The method further includes responsive to determining that the user of the article of apparel is not likely to be comfortable at the future time, performing an operation.

  • Publication number: 20190328278
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems and methods for monitoring respiratory parameters of a person (e.g., a user). In some examples, a system for respiratory monitoring includes a sensor and a computing device. The sensor monitors at least one respiratory related parameter. The computing device is connected to the sensor. The computing device includes a processor. The processor receives a feature vector having a plurality of features, each respective feature associated with a respective respiratory related parameter. The processor also receives from the sensor the at least one respective respiratory related parameter. The processor determines a first breathing state based on the feature vector.
