  • Patent number: 11768438
    Abstract: A method includes driving, while producing a burst of pulses at a pulse repetition rate, a spectral feature adjuster among a set of discrete states at a frequency correlated with the pulse repetition rate; and in between the production of the bursts of pulses (while no pulses are being produced), driving the spectral feature adjuster according to a driving signal defined by a set of parameters. Each discrete state corresponds to a discrete value of a spectral feature. The method includes ensuring that the spectral feature adjuster is in one of the discrete states that corresponds to a discrete value of the spectral feature of the amplified light beam when a pulse in the next burst is produced by adjusting one or more of: an instruction to the lithography exposure apparatus, the driving signal to the spectral feature adjuster, and/or the instruction to the optical source.

  • Publication number: 20230257044
    Abstract: Systems and methods for collecting electric scooters are described herein. In some embodiments, the systems and methods facilitate a “snaking” configuration of attaching, coupling, or fixing multiple electric scooters to one another. The snaking configuration enables multiple electric scooters to be collected together and moved to various locations, such as locations where the electric scooters can be rented, serviced, and so on. Further, the systems and methods enable any electric scooter to act as a collecting scooter, and thus a scooter share service or other fleet of scooters can manage the collection and provisioning of scooters in a location without special vehicles or equipment, among other benefits.

  • Publication number: 20230249687
    Abstract: A tight turn wheel locking system may include a steering end stop sensor to output signals indicating that steered front wheels of a vehicle are in an end stop state towards a short turn side, an end stop steering wheel input sensor to output signals indicating end stop operator input to the steering wheel while the steered front wheels are in the end stop state, and a controller configured to automatically enter a tight turn mode in response to the end stop operator input satisfying a predetermined threshold. The controller, in the tight turn mode, outputs tight turn control signals that cause a vehicle braking system of the vehicle to lock a rear wheel of the vehicle corresponding to the short turn side.

  • Publication number: 20230240168
    Abstract: A vehicle may operate in a first mode in which an electric motor operates in a forward state such that the rear ground traction members of the vehicle are driven forwardly by the electric motor while a hydraulic pump is powered by the electric motor and may alternatively operate in a second mode in which the electric motor operates in a reversed state such that the rear ground traction members are driven forwardly by the electric motor while the electric motor is operably decoupled from the hydraulic pump by a one-way clutch/bearing ring coupled between the electric motor and the hydraulic pump.

  • Publication number: 20230233176
    Abstract: Example implementations can include a method of calibrating orientation of a cerebral sensor and generating feedback from an injector for a cerebral sensor, by scanning an anatomical structure, by a cerebral sensor, proximate to the scan position and satisfying a first threshold, obtaining at least one cranial signal from the cerebral sensor in accordance with a first pathway over the anatomical structure, obtaining from the cranial signal a point corresponding to the anatomical structure, storing the obtained point to a point cache operable to store one or more points, in response to a determination that the point satisfies a second threshold, modifying the first pathway for actuating the cerebral sensor, in response to the determination that the obtained point satisfies the second threshold, selecting an optimized point from the point stack, and actuating the cerebral sensor continuously based on the optimized point.
