  • Patent number: 11603958
    Abstract: Systems and methods for assembling structural components are disclosed wherein a selectively configurable fixture is placed on an assembly surface of an assembly table. An assembly table interface couples about a pin of a pin slot of the assembly table and, by means of linkage assembly, translates movement of the pin to a positioning member. The positioning member, by the translated movement of the pin, abuts an element of structural component and supports the element while a fastener is applied to join multiple elements of the structural component. A selectively configurable fixture may be used in isolation, or in combination with other fixtures.

  • Publication number: 20230019372
    Abstract: Various techniques related to authenticating and verifying the integrity of data received by a computer system from an external source (such as a sensor) are disclosed. Hardware circuits are disclosed that, along with the computer processor, allow for error-checking and authentication of data received by the computer system. For instance, the hardware circuits may generate a separate authentication code that can be compared to the authentication code in the data itself to determine whether or not the message is authentic and whether or not there is an error in the data. The disclosed techniques reduce the processing requirements of a computer system and can be implemented using simple hardware circuit designs.

  • Patent number: 11549502
    Abstract: A valved manifold module is disclosed, constructed and arranged to be readily connected in a chain with similar modules to form a manifold assembly. The modular manifolds allows for expansion or modification of the manifold assembly to control a group of pneumatically or hydraulically driven pumps, valves or combinations thereof in a liquid flow control apparatus. The valved manifold module can be configured to accept a group of four substantially identical valve assemblies, and can be controlled by a local controller mounted to the manifold module, thus forming an independently programmable valved manifold module. The resulting modular system is expandable to allow for coordinated operations of a liquid flow control system, using substantially independent controller functions originating at the manifold assembly level.

  • Publication number: 20230007162
    Abstract: A computational pixel imaging device that includes an array of pixel integrated circuits for event-based detection and imaging. Each pixel may include a digital counter that accumulates a digital number, which indicates whether a change is detected by the pixel. The counter may count in one direction for a portion of an exposure and count in an opposite direction for another portion of the exposure. The imaging device may be configured to collect and transmit key frames at a lower rate, and collect and transmit delta or event frames at a higher rate. The key frames may include a full image of a scene, captured by the pixel array. The delta frames may include sparse data, captured by pixels that have detected meaningful changes in received light intensity. High speed, low transmission bandwidth motion image video can be reconstructed using the key frames and the delta frames.

  • Publication number: 20220408625
    Abstract: A tillage implement for variable tillage has a linkage mechanism disposed longitudinally between two gangs of annular harrow tools, the gangs each having a toolbar that is rotationally mounted on a frame of the implement. The linkage mechanism has a plurality of pivotally connected linkage arms, the toolbars each pivotally connected to at least one of the linkage arms. Operation of the linkage mechanism simultaneously rotates one toolbar about a first vertical rotation axis and the other toolbar about a second vertical rotation axis in an opposite rotational direction as the first toolbar. The implement has at least one wheel mounted on the frame longitudinally forward of both of the gangs or longitudinally rearward of both of the gangs. The tillage implement provides variable tillage while having a shorter frame to facilitate folding wing sections of the frame in a more compact manner for transportation while remaining assembled.

  • Patent number: 11536851
    Abstract: The disclosed technology for preparing digital samples for synthesis of RF to simulate channels and GNSS satellites using GPUs includes receiving simulated position and velocity of an antenna, dividing the cycle into points to be converted into the synthesized signal, and computing the points. A first LUT includes pseudo random sequences combinable to produce a code that varies over time for encoding the channel, and a second LUT specifies linear combinations of the pseudo random sequences in the first LUT that produce channel codes to produce the digital sample points. Also included is using GPUs to generate the channel code for a point by mapping the channel code and time position, combining the code with data to be encoded, repeatedly applying the using and combining to produce points, using multiple GPU cores to encode sample points concurrently in the cycle, and sending an ordered sequence of points to a converter.
