  • Publication number: 20220302752
    Abstract: A method and system for a headset wireless charging dock, where the charging dock comprises a radio, a coil, and a proximity sensor. The method may comprise sensing a presence of a headset using the proximity sensor, wirelessly charging a battery in the headset utilizing the coil, and wirelessly communicating commands, using the radio, to the headset to power down when fully charged. The command may be communicated to the headset utilizing a protocol and a RF radio used by the headset to receive audio signals. The command communicated to the headset may power down audio processing circuitry in the headset. The charging induction coil may be inductively coupled to a coil in the headset to wirelessly charge the battery in the headset. The proximity sensor may comprise a Hall sensor.

  • Patent number: 11390393
    Abstract: A nacelle assembly includes a fixed inlet segment and a translating inlet segment. The translating inlet segment includes a slider beam laterally between a pair of tracks of the fixed inlet segment. The slider beam is mated with and slidable longitudinally along the pair of tracks. The translating inlet segment is configured to translate longitudinally between a retracted position and an extended position. An aft end of the translating inlet segment is abutted against a forward end of the fixed inlet segment when the translating inlet segment is in the retracted position. An airflow inlet into an inlet passage of the nacelle assembly is opened longitudinally between the aft end of the translating inlet segment and the forward end of the fixed inlet segment when the translating inlet segment is in the extended position.

  • Patent number: 8519984
    Abstract: An input device capable of optically communicating with an electronic apparatus is provided. The input device includes a light source, a force sensor, and a controller. The force sensor is configured to sense a force applied to a tip of the input device and generate a first sensing signal corresponding to the sensed force. The controller is electrically connected to the light source and the force sensor, and configured to receive the first sensing signal and control the light source to generate light pulses in response to the first sensing signal according to a predefined protocol.

  • Publication number: 20110175444
    Abstract: A remote station may be constructed such that components or the station arc placed upon a skid and transported to a remote site. When deposited at the remote site, the remote station may cause a minimal disturbance on the ground while providing the necessary remote services, such as power and communications, because the skid may simply rest upon the ground, and the components rest atop the skid.
