  • Patent number: 11150896
    Abstract: A method, system, and computer program product for automatically generating service definitions for application clients of a message broker is provided. The method includes retrieving a trace of interactions between different application instances and corresponding message queues in a message brokering system. Thereafter, messages in the trace can be analyzed to identify the application instances and related message exchange data. Finally, a service definition document can be generated for each identified application instance using the related message exchange data to describe computational services provided by the identified application instance.

  • Publication number: 20210290310
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods are provided for user input to control automated movement of catheters and other elongate bodies. Fluid drive systems can be used to provide robotically coordinated motion. Precise control over actual robotic catheter-supported tools are enhanced by moving a virtual version of the tool from a starting location of an actual tool to a desired ending position and orientation. A processor of the system can then generate synchronized actuator drive signals to move the tool without following the (often meandering) path input by the system user. The progress of the tool along a multi-degree-of-freedom trajectory can be controlled with a simple 1D input. Standard planar or proprietary input devices can be used for orientation and translation movements. Hybrid image display with 2D and 3D components is provided, along with spacial constrained movement to workspace boundaries.

  • Publication number: 20210240985
    Abstract: A method and system for authoring a three-dimensional (3D) presentation can involve dividing a scene into a grid of equals-sized segments or non-equally sized segments, wherein one or more 360-degree cameras record the scene from a center of each segment, and a size of the each segment is proportional to a complexity of an environment captured in the scene. One or more objects can be created within the scene for a user interaction with a 3D presentation of the scene in the context of a video stream. A logical center of the object(s) can be used as a center point for recording a 360-degree video by the one or more 360-degree cameras for use as a low fidelity background video when the user interacts with the 3D presentation of the scene. The 3D presentation can be based on a 3D model.

  • Patent number: 10979777
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to processing systems that generate reverse video content output streams for reconstruction of sensor devices. A computing platform may receive video content including step completion inputs. Based on the step completion inputs, the computing platform may mark data packets in the video content, and may use the marked data packets to generate video segments. The computing platform may refine the video segments to remove the step completion inputs, and may generate a first reverse video content output stream using the refined video segments. The computing platform may send the first reverse video content output stream to an enhanced reality device for display. The computing platform may determine a maintenance update corresponding to a sensor device shown in the video content, and may send commands directing a maintenance database to update a maintenance log and to cause the sensor device to perform a setting adjustment.

  • Publication number: 20210086859
    Abstract: A micromobility electric vehicle with a controller that operates the vehicle in a walk-assist mode, expanding the population of users that can comfortably use the vehicle. In walk-assist mode, the speed of the vehicle may be limited to a walking speed, regardless of the position of a throttle. In contrast, in a riding mode, the maximum speed may be higher. The walk-assist mode may be entered or exited based on output of one or more sensors, indicating that the user is or is not riding the vehicle or that a user is or is not pushing the vehicle. Such sensors may be positioned in a seat, in a floorboard or on the handlebars of the vehicle. Alternatively or additionally, the sensor may be associated with a control, such as a tab configured to be pressed by a user's thumb when the user is pushing the vehicle.
