  • Publication number: 20240182276
    Abstract: The present application relates to a stopping method and apparatus for a device with a hoisting mechanism and a crane. The method includes: generating a displacement change rate according to position offset information of a hoisting handle of the device when the position offset information meets a triggering condition; comparing the displacement change rate with a preset threshold to generate a stopping control instruction; and controlling an overhead system of the device to perform deceleration stopping according to the stopping control instruction. The stopping method and apparatus for the device with the hoisting mechanism, the crane, the electronic device and the computer readable medium involved in the present application may achieve the purpose of rapid stopping control only through the hoisting handle of the device, and reduce the requirement for the driver's reaction time and increase the safety of the device when emergency stopping is required.

  • Patent number: 11985515
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to dynamic antenna array reconfiguration and signaling in millimeter wave bands. A user equipment (UE) may detect an antenna array change condition. The UE may transmit a request for beam training for an antenna array configuration in response to the detecting. The request for beam training may include a requested antenna array configuration for the UE and an indication of beam weights to use with the requested antenna array configuration. A base station may determine whether to grant or deny the requested antenna array configuration for the UE. The UE may receive, from the base station, an indication of an antenna array configuration for the UE. The base station may transmit the number of reference signals as a set of contiguous channel state information reference signals (CSI-RS). The UE may train the reconfigured active antenna array configuration based on the reference signals.

  • Patent number: 11844687
    Abstract: A method of making an implantable prosthesis includes applying a gelling enhancer layer over an inner surface of a wall of a silicone shell having anterior and posterior walls surrounding an interior volume. The method includes filling the interior volume of the shell with a silicone gel and curing the silicone gel. The cured silicone gel that is located within a zone that is in the vicinity of the gelling enhancer layer has a higher level of cohesiveness than the cured silicone gel that is located outside the zone. The zone of the silicone gel having the higher level of cohesiveness has a thickness of 2-10 mm. The silicone gel located outside the zone has a first concentration level of a gelling enhancer and the silicone gel located within the zone has a second concentration level of the gelling enhancer that is 5%-300% greater than the first concentration level.
