  • Publication number: 20210228290
    Abstract: A robotic surgery system includes a control unit assembly that supports and operates one or more robotic tools and a mechanical arm assembly that movably supports the control unit assembly in space. The mechanical arm assembly includes a boom assembly with one or more boom arms rotatably coupled to each other via one or more joints and having one or more actuators. An elevating linkage assembly is coupled to the boom assembly and has an actuator operable to allow vertical movement of the control unit assembly in a substantially weightless manner. Yaw and pitch control assemblies are interposed between the elevating linkage assembly and the control unit assembly and have actuators operable to allow movement of the control unit assembly in yaw and pitch. The one or more actuators are actuatable to allow movement of the control unit assembly in space upon actuation of one or more user interfaces of the control unit assembly.

  • Patent number: 10158567
    Abstract: A method for assisting media access control (MAC) address learning is disclosed. The method includes receiving, at a first provider edge (PE) device, a data packet from a core network, the data packet identifying an Ethernet Segment (ES) from which the data packet originated and identifying a first MAC address as the destination MAC address; determining, at the first PE device, whether the first PE device has an Ethernet connection in the ES identified by the data packet and whether the first PE device has learned the first MAC address; and, upon positive determination, sending an announcement message to the core network, the announcement message identifying the first MAC address.

  • Publication number: 20160220836
    Abstract: The device and method for phase-locking brain stimulation to electroencephalographic rhythms improves the accuracy, specificity, and effectiveness of non-invasive brain stimulation devices by timing pulses of brain stimulation to occur in synchrony with naturally occurring brain rhythms measured at the scalp of a patient in order to treat an assortment of neurological and psychiatric conditions. The device and method provided herein improve non-invasive brain stimulation techniques by time-locking the onset of brain stimulation to the phase of naturally-occurring rhythmic oscillations of brain activity that can be recorded with electroencephalography (EEG). The device and method perform real-time signal analysis of a specified EEG rhythm, extract frequency-domain phase information to estimate the next occurrence of a desired EEG rhythm phase, and trigger a brain stimulation pulse so as to align precisely with this predicted EEG phase.

  • Patent number: 9166405
    Abstract: A method, device, and system for controlling power delivered to a power-consuming device. The device can harvest power from a conductor carrying a high voltage using a power harvesting device. The device can include a power storage device to power a hardware processor and a communication component when there is no voltage flowing through the conductor. The device can determine when a control event is to occur. At such time, the device terminates control power delivered to the power-consuming device and continues to withhold the control power until the control event expires. When the control event has ended, the device allows control power to flow to the power-consuming device. The device uses a timer and the communication component to send and receives signals associated with a control event to a user. The device can also operate in a limited mode to conserve power when the device is not in use.
