  • Patent number: 10877483
    Abstract: A sensor synchronization system for an autonomous vehicle is described. Upon initializing a master clock on a master processing node for a sensor apparatus of the autonomous vehicle, the system determines whether an external timing signal is available. If the signal is available, the system synchronizes the master clock with the external timing signal. Based on a clock cycle of the master clock, the system propagates timestamp messages to the sensors of the sensor apparatus, receives sensor data, and formats the sensor data based on the timestamp messages.

  • Publication number: 20200383501
    Abstract: A privacy screen attachment apparatus can include a screen body having a plurality of elongated rungs spaced apart from each other. The rungs can be configured to facilitate releaseable attachment to screen bodies and other structures to allow for an adjustment in the extent to which a visible barrier is provided. Structures that can be connected to the rungs can also permit other functionality (e.g. attachment of a tackable surface, dry erase board, etc.) in addition to adjusting the visible barrier provided by the body of the privacy screen apparatus. A connection mechanism can be provided to facilitate a releasable attachment of such structures to the rungs without requiring use of any mechanical tools. Embodiments of the connection mechanism can be configured to also help prevent accidental disconnection to avoid accidents that could result in damage to the privacy screen apparatus or other objects.

  • Publication number: 20200387878
    Abstract: Configuring data transfers based on electronic messages. A system includes a communication module, a processor, and a memory. The memory stores instructions that, when executed, configure the processor to: receive, from a client device, an authentication credential and associate the authentication credential with a client record. The processor identifies, based on delegated access to query a message account at a message server, a resource request message associated with the message account using a defined criteria. The processor obtains, based on the resource request message, a resource parameter to define a proposed resource transfer to a recipient entity. The processor generates and transmits, to the client device, a transfer request alert based on the proposed resource transfer for display at the client device. In response to receiving, from the client device, a selection of a selectable option, the processor allocates a resource to the recipient entity.

  • Patent number: 10861239
    Abstract: A computer system renders one or more virtual objects on a display of a hybrid-reality system (DHR), such as head-mounted display (HMD), which represents occluded or obscured details in the field-of-view. Information is presented to a user by establishing a view position relative to a real-world object and receiving dimension and position data associated with an occluded object. The occluded object is at least partially occluded by the real-world object at the view position. A first image of at least a portion of the occluded object is rendered on the DHR using the first data. Second data associated with the occluded object is received and a stimulus is provided to the user representing the second data.

  • Publication number: 20200373009
    Abstract: A method of pairing a therapeutic product delivery device to a handset is described. The handset is restricted to controlling only delivery devices which it is paired with. The method comprises the steps of: at the delivery device, setting, in response to the delivery device being connected to a charging device, a pairing indicator indicating that the delivery device is available for pairing, and broadcasting the pairing indicator using a radio transceiver; at the handset, discovering the delivery device based on the broadcast pairing indicator; and pairing the discovered delivery device and the handset together. By limiting the handset to pairing with devices which are broadcasting a pairing indicator, and by limiting the setting and/or broadcast of the pairing indicator to when the delivery device is connected to a charging device, the risk of accidentally pairing the wrong delivery device (for example someone else's) to the handset is greatly reduced.

  • Publication number: 20200364821
    Abstract: The present invention facilitates efficient and effective utilization of unified virtual addresses across multiple components. In one exemplary implementation, an address allocation process comprises: establishing space for managed pointers across a plurality of memories, including allocating one of the managed pointers with a first portion of memory associated with a first one of a plurality of processors; and performing a process of automatically managing accesses to the managed pointers across the plurality of processors and corresponding memories. The automated management can include ensuring consistent information associated with the managed pointers is copied from the first portion of memory to a second portion of memory associated with a second one of the plurality of processors based upon initiation of an accesses to the managed pointers from the second one of the plurality of processors.
