  • Publication number: 20220224973
    Abstract: Methods and systems for selecting and delivering content are provided. More particularly, content can be delivered to an output device from a user device through a device adaptor, such as an over-the-top (OTT) device. The OTT device or devices available to the user device are determined by a communication server. In particular, the OTT device or devices available to the user device are limited to those OTT devices associated with an output device in the user's room, or that the user is otherwise authorized to access.

  • Publication number: 20210318736
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing temperatures of wearable device components are disclosed. In one aspects, a method includes determining a temperature of an electronic component of the wearable device, determining a rate of temperature change of the electronic component, and determining whether to increase or decrease a transmission rate limit of the electronic component based on the temperature and the rate, adjusting the transmission rate limit based on the determination, and limiting a rate of transmission of the electronic component based on the adjusted transmission rate limit.

  • Patent number: 10809304
    Abstract: Systems, devices, media, and methods are presented for adaptively estimating power. The systems and methods measure an electrical potential of a power source coupled to a wearable computing device and determine a current power consumption on the power source. The systems and methods identify a current slope value mapping the electrical potential to an estimated capacity percentage based on the measured electrical potential. The systems and methods determine a correction value based on the current power consumption and the current slope value and generate a current capacity value from the electrical potential and the correction value. The systems and methods cause presentation of a representation of the current capacity value within a power indicator and control one or more processes operating within the wearable computing device based on the current capacity value.

  • Patent number: 10551889
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing temperatures of wearable device components are disclosed. In one aspect, a wearable electronic device includes glasses, a wireless transmitter, an ambient temperature sensor, hardware processing circuitry, and a hardware memory storing instructions that when executed configure the hardware processing circuitry to determine an ambient temperature using the ambient temperature sensor, determine a maximum temperature of the wearable electronic device based on the ambient temperature, determine a temperature of the wearable electronic device, determine a difference between the maximum wearable temperature and the determined temperature of the wearable electronic device, and adjust a transmission rate of the wireless transmitter based on the difference.

  • Patent number: 9998547
    Abstract: A vehicle computing system includes at least one processor configured to provide a lockout icon to a mobile device using a uniform resource identifier. The at least one processor is further configured to, in response to established communication with the mobile device having a user-interface display, retrieve the uniform resource identifier based on an application being executed at the mobile device. The at least one processor is further configured to transmit the uniform resource identifier to the mobile device to lockout the user-interface display with the lockout icon associated with the uniform resource identifier.

  • Patent number: 9480383
    Abstract: The present cleaning attachment, for engagement to a rim of a utility bucket, permits the pushing or sweeping of solid and liquid waste up a ramp and into the interior space of the bucket. The ramp of the attachment is connected to a frame configured to engage the rim of the bucket. A waste retention wall at the back of the ramp creates a contained volume and blocks the waste from exiting the bucket once swept in.

  • Publication number: 20060283363
    Abstract: An improved cup-style potato planter that corrects seed “skips.” Cups on a continuous belt conveyor sometimes fail to pick up potato seeds from a bin, or the seeds drop from the cup due to vibration. The design disclosed here puts replacement seeds in empty cups before the conveyor reaches a point in conveyor travel where the seed is supposed to be dropped into the ground.
