  • Patent number: 11025750
    Abstract: An accessed indicator is encoded in a uniform resource locator (URL) of a first request message, for a first action, to determine if a first request is for a native behavior that provides client-side platform specific actions implemented by the client device that has client-side resources instead of a server in communication with the client device. The first request message represents the first request to access the native behavior. The first action is implemented using a client-side resource of the client device without transmitting the first request from the client device to the server that the first request was originally destined for. A second request message with a second request specifying a second action is intercepted. It is determined that the second action cannot be performed by any of the client-side resources of the client device. The second request specifying the second action is transmitted from the client device to the server.

  • Patent number: 11011077
    Abstract: A virtual reality system providing a virtual robotic surgical environment, and methods for using the virtual reality system, are described herein. Within the virtual reality system, various user modes enable different kinds of interactions between a user and the virtual robotic surgical environment. For example, one variation of a method for facilitating navigation of a virtual robotic surgical environment includes displaying a first-person perspective view of the virtual robotic surgical environment from a first vantage point, displaying a first window view of the virtual robotic surgical environment from a second vantage point and displaying a second window view of the virtual robotic surgical environment from a third vantage point. Additionally, in response to a user input associating the first and second window views, a trajectory between the second and third vantage points can be generated sequentially linking the first and second window views.
