  • Patent number: 10585993
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is provided that determines and simulates the proper putting stroke using at least aiming direction and speed for successfully making a particular putt based on particular putting green characteristics and the location of the golf hole on the putting green, and which is interactive with the user thereby providing an enhanced playing experience and improved putting results.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10360323
    Abstract: A putting stroke apparatus and method is provided that determines and simulates the proper putting stroke using at least an aiming direction and initial ball speed for successfully making a particular putt based on particular putting green characteristics and the location of the golf hole on the putting green. A pendulum putter apparatus is coupled with a putting diagnostic tool wherein the putting diagnostic tool determines at least an aiming direction and initial ball speed for a particular putt using inputs such as: (i) topographic information (e.g., contours) specific to the green; (ii) the green speed at a particular time; (iii) the golf hole location (i.e., the physical location of the golf hole); and (iv) the golf ball location on the green (i.e., the physical location of the golf ball).

  • Patent number: 7292930
    Abstract: Engine systems and methods for accomplishing regeneration of a NOx adsorber (28) using in-cylinder post-injection in a way that creates a lean-rich transition (FIG. 3) for regenerating the NOx adsorber while attenuating engine torque output fluctuations during the transition without the necessity of using torque sensing to attenuate the fluctuations.

  • Patent number: 7047730
    Abstract: De-sulfurizing a NOx adsorber catalyst (48) without significantly increasing the temperature of exhaust gases leaving the engine exhaust manifold (42) by using a diesel oxidation catalyst (46) between the exhaust manifold and the NOx adsorber catalyst to elevate exhaust gas temperature entering the NOx adsorber catalyst to suitable de-sulfurizing temperature through control of certain aspects of engine operation (24, 28, 52).
