  • Publication number: 20190250187
    Abstract: Build sequences for fabricating an atomically-precise product can be determined using computational chemistry algorithms to simulate mechanosynthetic reactions, and which may use the mechanosynthesis process conditions or equipment limitations in these simulations, to determine a set of mechanosynthetic reactions that will build an atomically-precise workpiece with a desired degree of reliability. Methods for error correction of pathological reactions or avoidance of pathological reactions are disclosed. Libraries of reactions may be used to reduce simulation requirements.

  • Patent number: 10282924
    Abstract: A device for sending and receiving messages between an electronic control unit of a vehicle and an external device includes a processor, a memory, a first port, and a second port. The memory, first port, and second port are each in communication with the processor. The first port is configures to communicate with the electronic control unit of a vehicle, while the second port is configured to communicate with the external device. The processor is configured to receive a request message from the external device via the second port, transmit the request message to the electronic control unit of the vehicle; receive requested information from the electronic control unit of the vehicle based on the request message, and determine an information subset in the requested information that should be transmitted to the external device; and transmitting the information subset to the external device.

  • Publication number: 20190016351
    Abstract: A vehicle, particularly a rail vehicle, includes at least two coach bodies being coupled together and at least one line bridging a gap between the coach bodies. The line, which is an outwardly electrically insulated high-voltage line, is flexible and is guided by a cable guiding device in the region of the gap between the coach bodies at least in sections. The cable guiding device includes a multiplicity of guiding elements which are mechanically coupled together and can be pivoted in relation to each other in a guiding plane. The cable guiding device is flexible in the guiding plane and is less flexible in a plane which is perpendicular thereto than in the guiding plane.

  • Publication number: 20170322930
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for document based query and information retrieval which rapidly locate similar documents within a document corpora providing a document based search result to the search initiator including one or more estimated measures of similarity for each search result item and appropriate search result document metadata. After providing document based similarity approximation search results, the system also rapidly retrieves and determines more accurate measures of similarity, including the relevant document terms and term statistics used to determine an exact measure of similarity, between the document based query document term collection and individual search result document term collections using one or more computing devices, that are application and platform independent, participating in a distributed multicore processing environment.
