  • Patent number: 10735888
    Abstract: A machine-to-machine (M2M) gateway (GW) includes reachability, addressing, and repository (RAR) capability. The GW maintains a local mapping table and local device application repository, performs data aggregation, address/name translation, provides event reporting and establishes GW reachability and wake-up time. The GW supports requests from M2M applications or other capabilities within the GW, and from a network and application (N&A) domain RAR. The GW may include an M2M device and M2M gateway management (MDGM) capability that receives management requests for an M2M device and functions as a network proxy. The MDGM accepts and processes requests from the N&A domain on behalf of the M2M device and performs management functions of the M2M device on behalf of the N&A domain. The MDGM may request the N&A domain for permission to interact with the M2M device, initiate an interaction for device management tasks with the M2M device, and report to the N&A domain.

  • Publication number: 20200221400
    Abstract: An electronic device, method, and computer program product provide an asynchronous quick connection or reconnection between wireless connecting devices for low-latency transitions in presentation of content to a user. A first device transmits an out-of-band frame sync signal to a second device to prompt the second device to synchronize clocks with the first device and to one of: (i) connect; and (ii) reconnect an over-the-air (OTA) communication session with the first device. First and second devices establish the OTA communication session. The establishment is expedited by the out-of-band frame sync signal. First device transmits output data, via the in-band OTA session, by the first device to the second device to present the output data on a second user output device of the second device.

  • Publication number: 20200171613
    Abstract: A spindle locking apparatus for power tools having a spindle mounted for rotation within a tubular housing. The locking apparatus includes a locking sleeve disposed between the spindle and its tubular housing, a locking collar surrounding the tubular housing radially outboard of the locking sleeve, and a set of drive pins mechanically coupling the locking collar to the locking sleeve through axial slots in the tubular collar. The inner periphery of the locking sleeve is shaped to lockingly engage a flat-sided portion of the spindle, and a spring element biases the locking sleeve away from the flat-sided portion of the spindle to unlock the spindle. The locking collar is axially shiftable against the spring bias as permitted by the slots in the tubular housing to bring the locking sleeve into locking engagement with the flat-sided portion of the spindle to prevent spindle rotation.

  • Patent number: 10404542
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for supporting machine-to-machine (M2M) communications in a hierarchical network architecture including an M2M gateway are disclosed. An M2M entity, (such as M2M device, M2M gateway, or M2M network entity), may perform a service capability discovery procedure to discover an M2M service capability entity that may provide an M2M service capability, and register with the discovered M2M service capability entity. The address or identity of the service capability entity may be pre-configured or obtained from the dispatcher server. The M2M entity may indicate a support M2M service identifier and receive an identity or address of the M2M service capability entity mapping the service identifier. The gateway may advertise M2M service identifiers supported by the gateway so that the M2M device may access the gateway if there is a match. The address of M2M service capability entities may be obtained from the core network.

  • Publication number: 20190215229
    Abstract: A method of accessing services affiliated with a service provider is disclosed. An issuer performs a bootstrap procedure with the at least one discovered service provider. The issuer performs a discovery procedure to determine available service capability layers (SCLs) supported by the at least one discovered service provider. The issuer transmits a domain name system-based service discovery (DNS-SD) query from the issuer to a DNS-SD M2M service discovery function (MSDF) server. The DNS-SD MSDF server is provisioned with SCL discovery records. The DNS-SD MSDF server is registered with a public DNS registrar entity. The SCL discovery records include, for each SCL, a type of M2M service capabilities supported by each SCL and a class of M2M services supported by each SCL. The issuer receives SCL discovery records from the DNS-SD MSDF server in response to the DNS-SD query.

  • Publication number: 20160055304
    Abstract: Apparatuses, systems, methods, and program products are disclosed for targeted electrical stimulation. A method includes determining, by a processor, a base configuration for each of a plurality of electrodes configured to transmit an electrical current towards a target area of a biological structure. A method includes calculating a cost associated with transmitting an electrical current to the target area according to the base configuration. A method includes modifying the base configuration in response to the calculated cost not satisfying a minimum cost threshold. The modified configuration clusters electrical current transmitted by each of the electrodes at the target area according to a resistivity map of the biological structure to minimize the cost of transmitting the electrical current. The cost is re-calculated according to the modified configuration and the configuration is modified until the minimum cost threshold is satisfied.

  • Patent number: 8068892
    Abstract: The present invention relates to electrode assemblies, neurostimulation systems and methods for implanting and using same. In exemplary embodiments, the electrode includes a body having a conductive contact surface dimensioned and configured to contact a patient's skull; and an electrode head associated with the body. The electrode head is sized for subcutaneous positioning adjacent the subject's skull, and the electrode body is of a length and configured such that the electrode body extends at least partially through the patient's skull but does not contact the patient's dura mater. As these electrodes need not directly contact the brain nor penetrate the dura mater to be effective in neurostimulatory applications, they avoid many of the disadvantages, e.g. increased risk of infection and invasive implantation procedures, associated with conventional electrode design.
