  • Patent number: 11982119
    Abstract: An automated door system includes a door pivotally coupled to a vehicle body at a hinge axis defined by at least one hinge assembly. A power assist device is coupled to the hinge assembly and further coupled to the door. The power assist device is configured to slow movement of the door along a door swing path from an initial velocity to a slow close velocity when the initial velocity exceeds a predetermined threshold velocity, thereby providing a slow and controlled close when a user attempts to slam the door. The power assist device is further configured to power opening and closing movement of the door as initiated by a user.

  • Patent number: 11719363
    Abstract: In an example, an adjustable clamp system includes a base, a clamp assembly, and a first eccentric bushing. The base includes an anchor portion configured to couple the base to a support structure, a first clamp-support portion extending from the anchor portion, and a second clamp-support portion extending from the anchor portion. The clamp assembly includes a clamp defining a bore, a first flange extending from a first side of the clamp and coupled to the first clamp-support portion, and a second flange extending from a second side of the clamp and coupled to the second clamp-support portion. The first eccentric bushing couples the first flange to the first clamp-support portion. The first eccentric bushing is rotatable relative to the first flange to translate the clamp assembly in a first direction relative to the base and adjust a distance between the clamp and the anchor portion of the base.

  • Patent number: 11568185
    Abstract: Centroids are used for improving machine learning classification and information retrieval. A plurality of files are classified as malicious or not malicious based on a function dividing a coordinate space into at least a first portion and a second portion such that the first portion includes a first subset of the plurality of files classified as malicious. One or more first centroids are defined in the first portion that classify files from the first subset as not malicious. A file is determined to be malicious based on whether the file is located within the one or more first centroids.

  • Patent number: 11501120
    Abstract: An artifact is received and features are extracted therefrom to form a feature vector. Thereafter, a determination is made to alter a malware processing workflow based on a distance of one or more features in the feature vector relative to one or more indicator centroids. Each indicator centroid specifying a threshold distance to trigger an action. Based on such a determination, the malware processing workflow is altered.

  • Patent number: 11338531
    Abstract: An automatic can crusher apparatus for crushing cans for recycling includes a housing having a ram aperture extending through to a housing inside. A ram has a pneumatic cylinder body, a ram arm extending through the ram aperture, and a ram head coupled to the ram arm. The ram moves the ram head between a load position and a crush position adjacent a housing right side. A can positioner is coupled to a housing left side within the housing inside to secure a can adjacent the ram head in the load position. A feeder chute is coupled to the housing top side to receive a plurality of cans through a chute top end and dispense each can through a chute bottom end onto the can positioner when the ram head is in the load position.

  • Publication number: 20220134079
    Abstract: A fluid-containing cap that fits onto corresponding tubing connectors comprised of a housing and rigid, non-compressible internal fluid reservoir. Fluid is retained within the cap by means of a high surface area internal structure providing sufficient surface tension to prevent fluid from exiting the reservoir until a corresponding tubing connector is inserted therein causing the fluid to disperse out of the cap reservoir and onto the inserted tubing connector.

  • Patent number: 11316663
    Abstract: Techniques for authentication using a blockchain hash value as a moving factor. The techniques include retrieving, by an authenticating device and from a blockchain, a current hash value of the blockchain, where the authenticating device and an authenticator server share a secret key value and each have access to the blockchain. The techniques further including generating, by the authenticating device, a secure token based on the secret key value and the current hash value. The techniques further including transmitting the secure token to the authenticator server and receiving an indication of authentication from the authenticator server.
