  • Publication number: 20240069161
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a lidar system includes a wavelength-tunable light source configured to emit pulses of light, each emitted pulse of light having a particular wavelength of multiple different wavelengths. The lidar system also includes a scanner configured to scan the emitted pulses of light across a field of regard of the lidar system. The scanner includes (i) a beam deflector configured to angularly deflect each emitted pulse of light along a first scan axis according to the particular wavelength of the emitted pulse of light and (ii) a scan mirror configured to scan the emitted pulses of light along a second scan axis different from the first scan axis. The lidar system further includes a receiver configured to detect a received pulse of light that includes a portion of one of the emitted pulses of light scattered by a target located a distance from the lidar system.

  • Publication number: 20230321303
    Abstract: A volatile composition dispenser including a solid article having a volatile composition and a peripheral evaporative surface. The solid article shrinks relative to the peripheral evaporative surface from an initial size to a reduced size smaller than the initial size upon exposure of the solid article to the environment in an interior space. The solid article is characterized by a shrinkage in a direction away from the peripheral evaporative surface of greater than 1% to less than 40%. A visual indicator is located proximal to the peripheral evaporative surface of the solid article. The dispenser has a first configuration in which the visual indicator is not visually perceptible, and a second configuration in which the visual indicator is visually perceptible upon shrinkage of at least a portion of the solid article from the initial size to the reduced size for indicating a state of use of the dispenser.

  • Patent number: 11497451
    Abstract: A method for clip selection includes receiving through an interface to a medical imaging device, a selection of a diagnostic procedure and a target portion of a mammalian body. Thereafter, the device acquires video clip imagery of the target portion and stores the video clip imagery in an image store. Each video clip of the video clip imagery is then image processed to determine a view and a quality of each video clip and a rule is retrieved from a rules base corresponding to the selected diagnostic procedure and target portion. In this regard, the rule specifies a requisite view and quality of the video clip imagery. Finally, the retrieved rule is applied to the video clip imagery as a filter to produce a subset of video clip imagery satisfying the specified requisite view and quality and the subset of video clip imagery is stored in the image store.
