    Abstract: An exhaust aftertreatment system includes a diesel oxidation catalyst in exhaust gas receiving communication with an engine. A selective catalytic reduction catalyst on filter (SCR on filter) is positioned downstream of the diesel oxidation catalyst. A hydrocarbon doser is configured to inject hydrocarbons into a flow of the exhaust gas upstream of the diesel oxidation catalyst. A reductant doser is configured to inject reductant into the flow of the exhaust gas upstream of the SCR on filter and downstream of the diesel oxidation catalyst. An aftertreatment controller is operatively coupled to the hydrocarbon doser. The aftertreatment controller is configured to control a dosing rate at which the hydrocarbon doser injects hydrocarbons into the flow of the exhaust gas so as to cause regeneration of the SCR on filter.

  • Patent number: 10786728
    Abstract: A system that mirrors motion of a physical object by displaying a virtual object moving in a virtual environment. The mirroring display may be used for example for feedback, coaching, or for playing virtual games. Motion of the physical object is measured by motion sensors that may for example include an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer. Sensor data is transmitted to a computer that calculates the position and orientation of the physical object and generates a corresponding position and orientation of the virtual object. The computer may correct or adjust the calculations using sensor data redundancies. The virtual environment may include constraints on the position, orientation, or motion of the virtual object. These constraints may be used to compensate for accumulating errors in position and orientation. The system may for example use proportional error feedback to adjust position and orientation based on sensor redundancies and virtual environment constraints.
