  • Publication number: 20210021766
    Abstract: An image capturing apparatus that includes one or more image sensors configured to capture a plurality of images and store the captured images in a memory. The apparatus also includes a circuitry that detects an input trigger and continues to capture new images in response to the trigger. The numbers of new images captured are equal in magnitude to half the magnitude of the capacity of the memory. The first new image captured after detecting the trigger is tagged as a reference image. In response to the number of new images captured, the sensors are deactivated and the reference image is displayed immediately on a display panel. On detecting an input operation, the apparatus displays a target image from the plurality of images captured in a quick and efficient manner.

  • Publication number: 20200055261
    Abstract: Methods of co-bonding a first thermoset composite (TSC) and a second TSC to define a cured composite part are disclosed herein. The methods include partially curing the first TSC to a target state of cure (SOC) to define a first partially cured TSC. The partially curing is based, at least in part, on a maximum temperature of the first TSC during the partially curing and on an elapsed time that an actual temperature of the first TSC is greater than a threshold temperature. The methods further include combining the first partially cured TSC with the second TSC to define a partially cured TSC assembly and heating the partially cured TSC assembly to bond the first partially cured TSC to the second TSC, cure the partially cured TSC assembly, and produce a cured composite part.

  • Publication number: 20190302046
    Abstract: A gas sensor and the drive circuit for the sensor are installed within a mobile electronic device. The gas sensor is intermittently heated to an operating temperature for detecting gases and kept at an ambient temperature for other periods. When a sensor of the mobile electronic device detects that the device is placed in a closed space, the heating of the metal oxide semiconductor is halted. When the sensor detects that the mobile electronic device has been taken out from the closed space, the heating of the metal oxide semiconductor is resumed. The poisoning of the gas sensor by siloxanes or the like is prevented.
