  • Patent number: 10758250
    Abstract: Measurement of a leading edge of an instrument passing from a first medium having a first density to a second medium having a second density using a displacement sensor alone. In particular, a displacement signal, a velocity signal, and an acceleration signal measured from or derived from a displacement sensor are analyzed to determine when the leading edge of the instrument passes from the first material to the second material as the leading edge of the instrument is advanced relative to the material. For instance, the measurement may be used to output an occurrence signal that indicates to a user that the instrument has passed from the first medium to the second medium. Additionally, a length measurement of the path of the instrument when passing from the first medium to the second medium may be recorded, and/or the instrument may be controlled (e.g., the instrument may be stopped).

  • Publication number: 20200239240
    Abstract: A conveyor sled assembly is utilized to supply proppant in support of oilfield hydraulic fracturing operations. The conveyor sled assembly includes precisely positioned components where tolerances between components are so small as to prevent significant spillage at component junction boundaries. This manner of fitting proppant pods onto the conveyor sled assembly increases predictability of which pods will discharge their proppant load first. This enhances reliability of the overall proppant delivery system.

  • Publication number: 20200197784
    Abstract: Systems and methods for resolving discrepancies between recordings made by multiple scorekeepers for a game comprising discrete events. In an example, a discrepancy resolving system include at least two personal computing devices and a remote server connected thereto, wherein each of the personal computing devices and the server is equipped with software which enables the personal computing devices to receive recordings of game events from a different scorekeeper, sending such recordings to the server, where the recordings from different scorekeepers are compared and discrepancies detected. The discrepancies are sent back to the computing devices for further responses from the scorekeepers. When the responses from different scorekeepers agree with each other, the discrepancies are resolved.

  • Publication number: 20200155166
    Abstract: A method and device for reducing the damaging effects of a blast or concussive event includes applying pressure to at least one jugular vein to reduce the egress of blood from the cranial cavity during the incidence of the concussive event. Reducing blood out flow from the cranial cavity increases intracranial pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid to reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury and injuries to the spinal column. Reducing blood out flow further increases the intracranial pressure, and thereby increases the pressure of the cochlear fluid, the vitreous humor and the cerebrospinal fluid to thereby reduce the risk of injury to the inner ear, internal structure of the eye and of the spinal column. In addition, increasing intracranial pressure reduces the likelihood of brain injury and any associated loss of olfactory function.

  • Publication number: 20200033128
    Abstract: Disclosed are technologies for autonomous tracking. An initial coordinate of a beacon device carried by a user is registered as a dead reckoning waypoint with a drone configured to track the user. The drone receives IMU measurements from the beacon as the user moves. For each IMU measurement, a displacement vector characterizing user movement is calculated. Estimated beacon locations are calculated by dead reckoning, based on the displacement vectors and the dead reckoning waypoint. Later, an updated dead reckoning waypoint is calculated by obtaining the current location coordinate of the drone and performing optical triangulation to determine a relative position of the user with respect to the drone. The updated dead reckoning waypoint does not depend on previously estimated beacon locations, and accumulated IMU/estimation error is eliminated. Tracking continues, where subsequent estimated locations of the beacon are calculated by dead reckoning based on the updated dead reckoning waypoint.
