  • Patent number: 10785621
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods to provide an interactive space based on vehicle-to-vehicle communications. A vehicle may store experience information and/or other information. The experience information may define virtual content to be presented to a user residing in the vehicle to create an interactive space. The virtual content may be associated with an experience location in a real-world environment. Responsive to a vehicle location of the vehicle being at or near the experience location, the user may be presented with views of the virtual content. The user may interact with the virtual content causing an update of the experience information. Upon detection of presence of a second vehicle, the vehicle may communicate the updated experience information to the second vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200289315
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for manipulating the temperature of a surface are provided. Devices of the present disclosure may include a thermal adjustment apparatus, such as a controller in electrical communication with one or more thermoelectric materials, placed adjacent to the surface of skin. The device may generate a series of thermal pulses at the surface, for providing an enhanced thermal sensation for a user. The thermal pulses may be characterized by temperature reversibility, where each pulse includes an initial temperature adjustment, followed by a return temperature adjustment, over a short period of time (e.g., less than 120 seconds). The average rate of temperature change upon initiation and upon return may be between about 0.1° C./sec and about 10.0° C./sec. In some cases, the average rate of the initial temperature adjustment is greater in magnitude than the average rate of the return temperature adjustment.

  • Patent number: 10654102
    Abstract: 3D-printed parts may include binding agents to be removed following an additive manufacturing process. A debinding process removes the binding agents by immersing the part in a solvent bath causing chemical dissolution of the binding agents. The time of exposure of the 3D-printed part to the solvent is determined based on the geometry of the part, wherein the geometry is applied to predict the diffusion of the solvent through the 3D-printed part. The 3D-printed part is then immersed in the solvent bath to remove the binding agent, and is removed from the solvent bath after the time of exposure.

  • Publication number: 20200136965
    Abstract: A method for routing CAN or CAN-FD frames by receiving at least a portion of an incoming frame; applying a programmed policy to determine to which of one or more destination interfaces the incoming frame should be forwarded, at any time when the policy can be evaluated against the incoming frame, even if before the incoming frame is received in its entirety; and initiating queuing or immediate transmission of the received frame on the destination interfaces, possibly before the incoming frame has been received in its received entirety. The method may include applying a programmed policy to the incoming frame which includes a rate limit, specifying the rate at which the policy may forward frames. And may further include enacting a frame modification during the reception or transmission, with the modification further encoded within the programmed policy modification of the CAN frame as it is received or transmitted.

  • Patent number: 10625337
    Abstract: A 3D printer includes a build plate providing a surface on which an object is printed. Prior to printing, a sheet is fixed to the surface of the build plate. The sheet is composed of a material that adheres to a binder component of the feedstock used to print the object. During printing, the first layer of the printed object forms a bond with the sheet, which secures the location of the first layer and resists movement of the object during printing. Following printing and the object gaining sufficient rigidity, the object and sheet can be removed together from the printer. The sheet may then be peeled from the object, and the object can undergo debinding and/or sintering to create a finished object.

  • Publication number: 20200115891
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes systems and apparatus for detecting an impending sewer backup by detecting fluid undulations of predetermined magnitude inside a main body of a backwater valve. When at least a predetermined number of fluid undulations of predetermined magnitude are detected within a predetermined time period, an alarm can be triggered. Such undulations can be detected by monitoring a buoyant gate in a normally-open backwater valve to detecting instances of movement of the gate from a lowered position in which fluid flow from an inlet through the backwater valve is unobstructed by the gate toward but stopping short of a raised position in which the gate closes the inlet to obstruct fluid flow through the valve. For example, a sensor can be carried on the gate to detect movement of the gate. Alternatively, fluid levels inside the main body can be monitored directly.
