  • Patent number: 11211071
    Abstract: Systems and methods for generating a request to an appliance service provider include the use of a processor in operable arrangement with a microphone to receive an audio signal therefrom and a computer-readable medium to execute an appliance service program contained therein. The appliance service program includes a speech recognition module, a command intent discernment module configured to determine whether speech data from the speech recognition module includes command data and appliance data, a fetch module to send appliance data from the audio signal to a content server in response to the command intent discernment module determining the speech data includes a service connect command and to receive the appliance service data from the content server, and an interface module configured to transmit the appliance service data to a user interface.

  • Publication number: 20210317991
    Abstract: A heat modulating system includes a heat source, a temperature sensor proximate the heat source, and a controller in connection with the temperature sensor and the heat source. The controller modulates a rate of temperature increase of the heat source based on temperature detected by the temperature sensor, and at a temperature set point detected by the temperature sensor the controller modulates power to the heat source to help to prevent unintended autoignition of cooking oil.

  • Patent number: 11123086
    Abstract: A glenoid reamer having a rim, a hub located central to the rim, a plurality of cutting blades, each of the blades extending from the rim to the hub, and a first transverse slot and a second transverse slot, wherein the first and second transverse slots are positioned to bisect the rim. The glenoid reamer can be configured to slide over a guide pin and toggle with respect to the guide pin, such that the guide pin is received in the first and second transverse slots and the reamer is substantially parallel with the guide pin. The glenoid reamer can also be configured to toggle with respect to the guide pin, such that the reamer is substantially perpendicular with respect to the guide pin.

  • Patent number: 11093513
    Abstract: The invention provides a large technological infrastructure to provide a unique comparison of athletic performance using a system. When a user traverses a route during a workout, the system can identify individual ones of a set of predetermined courses that are associated with the route. The system can include a unique point system and can compare aggregate athletic performances of different users across different geographical tracks or sections. Advantageously, people who cannot do the same course(s) can compete with one another; aggregate performances can be accumulated to give an overall performance metric; and people with differing abilities can compete with one another.

  • Patent number: 10955801
    Abstract: A system and approach for providing information about a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. A screen of the system on a display may have a portion revealing a perspective with a view of components such as cooling and heating coils, fans, dampers, sensors, and so forth. Data modules may be shown proximate to the components on the screen and indicate certain parameters about them. As second portion of the screen may show control and information modules related to items such as temperature and pressure control, and operating mode. The screen may also reveal relationships among sub-systems, applications, zones, alarms, and other items.

  • Patent number: 10767880
    Abstract: An HVAC system may include a VAV box including a damper movable between a first damper position and a second damper position and an HVAC controller that is mounted remotely from the VAV box. The HVAC controller may be configured to control the VAV box in accordance with a temperature set point entered into the HVAC controller and may be programmed with a test and balance procedure. In some cases, the HVAC controller may also be programmed with functionality that facilitates an installer or other technician in configuring and/or reconfiguring the VAV box. This may include providing a user interface that supports a test and balance procedure of the VAV box. Such functionality may be user-accessible via the user interface of the HVAC controller, and in some cases, may be used to drive the damper of the VAV box between various damper positions as well as perform other functionality.

  • Patent number: 10539970
    Abstract: An HVAC controller configured to control a VAV box including a damper may include a temperature sensor that is configured to sense a temperature proximate the HVAC controller and a touch screen user interface that is configured to display the sensed temperature and to enable a user to input a temperature set point. A controller may be operatively coupled to the touch screen user interface and the temperature sensor and may be configured to regulate operation of the VAV box in accordance with the sensed temperature and the temperature set point. The HVAC controller may be programmed with a test and balance procedure that is user-accessible via the touch screen user interface.
