  • Publication number: 20200320903
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a method for tamper-evident shipment or storage of goods. An Electrical Shield pattern is embedded in or printed on a substrate with other electrical, optical, and electronic components, communication components, semiconductors, which are attached or printed on a substrate to form a shipment bag used as a shipping container. The shield pattern can be made variable between different bags by using algorithms entered into a printer control system. The shipment bag with its components can then be assigned a unique signature which differentiates each bag. Application of encryption methods serves to guarantee the shipped goods are authentic and that were not tampered with during shipment. Digital signal processing is used to generate pedigree information, which may include items such as shipping location, serial numbers, sensor information, and lot numbers for the goods.

  • Patent number: 10750905
    Abstract: Provided is a grill apparatus having an elongated base assembly coupled to a firebox assembly. The base assembly includes a lid with a handle, where the lid is pivotally coupled to a base along the length of the base assembly. The base has a bottom, and a hole in a side portion that is adapted to accept an exhaust piping assembly, while the bottom of the base has a hole that substantially accommodate a fire box assembly. The firebox assembly is coupled to the base assembly and includes a firebox and at least one vent. A removable shield separates the firebox assembly from the base assembly. The shield is slightly larger than the hole in the base in at least one dimension, such that as the shield rests on the base above the hole in the base, a gap is left that allows heat and air to flow from the firebox into the base assembly.

  • Publication number: 20200234614
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a method for tamper-proof protection of containers used for shipment of goods. An optical fiber is embedded in an Optical Shield Wallpaper which lines all interior surfaces of any size of a shipping container, package, box, barrel or other shaped container. Wallpaper is manufactured using large scale rollers that press fibers with encapsulated adhesives onto an appropriate medium. Small medicine containers are protected with a fiber optic shield and sensors manufactured using ink jet printing techniques. Light is applied to the optical fiber and a measurement of optical fiber characteristics is performed. Digital signal processing is used to generate pedigree information, which may include items such as shipping location, serial numbers and lot numbers for the goods. The status of the autonomous anti-tampering system is monitored real-time for unauthorized intrusions. Intrusions detected are relayed to an authorized recipient via a variety of communication channels.

  • Publication number: 20200229871
    Abstract: Surgical robot for tracking and compensating bone movement, the robot comprising: a robot arm (3) and a tool guide (5) at the arm's end-effector, a tracker (1) attached to the robot arm at the same plane as the tool guide, the tracker comprising an assembly of articulated segments (1a-1d) and encoders (2) associated to the segments such that movement of the tracker is allowed and monitored in at least six degrees of freedom. The tracker base and the tool guide share the same frame, that is, are on the same plane, so that the system is able to determine directly the exact positioning of the tool guide with respect to the tracked bone without any intermediate device. This way, an optical tracker and the associated cameras can be dispensed with.

  • Publication number: 20200088144
    Abstract: A silencer for reducing gas noise in a combustion engine intake system has a tubular casing with a first casing part and a second casing part connected to each other by a weld seam to form an outer casing wall, wherein the weld seam is a part of the outer casing wall. A third part for compensating gas noise is positioned inside the tubular casing. The third part is arranged in the tubular casing such that an annular cavity is formed by the third part and the outer casing wall. A weld flash protrudes from an inner surface of the outer casing wall into the annular cavity and is contained therein. The silencer is produced in a single welding process in which the first and second casing parts are connected to each other to form the outer casing wall and the third part is connected to the tubular casing.

  • Publication number: 20190292096
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for manufacturing glass sheets with diffuse finish and the resulting glass sheet by this process. The glass sheet is subjected to a series of alternate immersions in acidic solutions and alkaline solutions to remove impurities and waste and to generate a diffuse finish on both sides of the glass sheet. The process generates in the glass sheet in at least one side, a diffuse surface with a peak to valley roughness (Rt) of between 5.8343 ?m and 9.3790 ?m; an average roughness (Ra) value between 0.8020 ?m and 0.9538 ?m; an RMS roughness between 0.9653 ?m and 1.1917 ?m; a solar transmission between 84.8% and 46.50%; a solar reflection between 7.4 and 4.4%; a light transmission between 88.5% and 67.70%; a reflection of light between 6.50% and 5.20%; and UV transmission between 35.60% and 70.20%.
