  • Patent number: 10106238
    Abstract: A system of modular components can be used with existing sensor suites to fuse data and determine the operating environment (surface contacts/tracks) for an autonomous marine vehicle and feed an autonomy decision engine to improve the vessel arbitration process in deciding which way to turn, how fast to go, obstacle avoidance, and mission monitoring. The system includes the ability to obey the set of navigation rules published by the International Maritime Organization, generally referred to as COLREGS (collision regulations).
    Type: Grant
    Filed: March 9, 2018
    Date of Patent: October 23, 2018

  • Publication number: 20170209073
    Abstract: A surgical tool having an electromagnetic (EM) sensor component is provided. The surgical tool has a flexible shaft portion. Additionally, the surgical tool has a rigid portion attached to the flexible shaft portion. The rigid portion comprises at least one EM sensor within the rigid portion. The at least one EM sensor comprises an extended core portion surrounded by a coil. Additionally, the at least one EM sensor generates a change in voltage when exposed to an electromagnetic field.
