  • Patent number: 10767144
    Abstract: A soap reforming assembly includes a housing and a soap collection unit that is coupled to the housing for collecting and transporting pieces of soap when the pieces of soap are dropped into the housing. A heating element is coupled to the housing and the heating element heats the soap collection unit to melt the soap pieces into a fluid soap. A forming unit is positioned within the housing for receiving the fluid soap from the soap collection unit when the heating element produces the fluid soap. The forming unit cools and forms the fluid soap into a bar for bathing. A drawer is slidably positioned in the housing and the drawer receives the bar of soap from the forming unit. The drawer is positionable in an open position having the drawer extending outwardly from the housing to dispense the bar of soap.

  • Publication number: 20200103509
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for quantitatively characterizing performance of a laser steering galvanometer mirror directs a laser beam from a calibration “sensor” onto a side region of the mirror to directly determine rotational positioning, velocity, and/or acceleration thereof using interferometry, time-of-flight measurements, and Doppler measurements. Measured positioning errors can be compared with a database to predict required calibration adjustments. Embodiments automatically adjust digital calibrations. Mirrors, splitters, and/or a plurality of sensors can apply measurement beams simultaneously or sequentially to both sides of a mirror, and/or to more than one mirror. Large rotation ranges, for example larger than +/?15 degrees, can be accommodated by applying measurement beams from a plurality of directions. The calibration apparatus can be distinct, or integral with the galvanometer, and can be used to monitor and/or to control the mirror positioning.

  • Publication number: 20190332959
    Abstract: The technology disclosed herein provides a summary of a predicted timeline for an event that has yet to occur. In a particular implementation, a method provides identifying a first event that has yet to occur. The method further provides identifying first data objects from a plurality of data objects obtained from a plurality of information sources. The first data objects include information pertinent to the first event. The method also provides extracting first time information relevant to the first event from the first data objects, determining a confidence level for each portion of the first time information, and generating a summary of the first time information based on the confidence level for each portion of the first time information.

  • Patent number: 10444203
    Abstract: Mechanical vibration may be sensed by a remotely located ultrasonic sensor. An ultrasonic wave may be transmitted from a transmitter to a vibrating surface, in which the transmitter is separated from the vibrating surface by a distance. A reflected portion of the ultrasonic wave that is reflected from the vibrating surface may be received by a receiver that is also separated from the vibrating surface by a distance. A measure of phase shift amplitude in the reflected portion of the ultrasonic wave may be determined and converted into an amplitude of a vibration of the vibrating surface.

  • Patent number: 10440776
    Abstract: One example includes a capability gateway that is comprised of a receiver and a transmitter. The receiver receives, from a ground station associated with a satellite system, a standard protocol associated with the ground station and a non-standard alternate protocol that includes alternate service layers inserted into an inter-layer boundary of standard radio layers, the alternate service layers providing end-to-end signaling between the capability gateway and a user equipment. The transmitter transmits the non-standard alternate protocol to the user equipment.
