  • Publication number: 20220172464
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for systems and methods for water non-water segmentation of navigational imagery to assist in the autonomous navigation of mobile structures. An imagery based navigation system includes a logic device configured to communicate with an imaging module coupled to a mobile structure and/or configured to capture images of an environment about the mobile structure. The logic device may be configured to receive at least one image from the imaging module; determine a water/non-water segmented image based, at least in part, on the received at least one image, and generate a range chart corresponding to the environment about the mobile structure based, at least in part, on the determined water/non-water segmented image and/or the received at least one image.

  • Publication number: 20200150677
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for systems and methods to provide extrinsic sensor calibration for mobile structures. A sensor calibration system includes first and second sensors coupled to a mobile structure and a logic device. The logic device is configured to receive first and second series of pose measurements corresponding to sensor data provided by the respective first and second sensors, determine a set of intermediate calibration transformation estimates corresponding to the first and second sensors based, at least in part, on a scale-dependent calibration error function and/or the first and second series of pose measurements, and determine an ongoing calibration transformation estimate corresponding to the first and second sensors based, at least in part, on the determined set of intermediate calibration transformation estimates.

  • Publication number: 20100263125
    Abstract: A massage table (210) for supporting a person above a surface (16) during a massage includes a table top assembly (212) and a headrest assembly (224). The table top assembly (212) includes a table aperture (212A) and the headrest assembly (224) is positioned substantially within the table aperture (212A). The headrest assembly (224) can include a headrest (232) that supports a head (25B) of the person during the massage and a coupler assembly (234) that couples the headrest (232) to the table top assembly (212). The headrest (232) includes a support frame (236) and a resilient assembly (238). The resilient assembly (238) is positioned substantially above the support frame (236) and is supported by the support frame (236). The support frame (236) and the resilient assembly (238) cooperate to adjustably support the head (25B) of the person during the massage.

  • Patent number: 7452032
    Abstract: A resting device assembly for supporting a person during a procedure includes a resting device and an armrest. The resting device supports the person during the treatment and includes a device frame. The armrest includes an arm support, a frame bracket, a frame pivot, and a support arm pivot. The arm support supports an arm of the person. The frame pivot connects the frame bracket to the device frame, and allows the frame bracket and the arm support to concurrently pivot relative to the device frame. The support arm pivot connects the arm support to the frame bracket and allows the arm support to pivot relative to the frame bracket. In certain embodiments, the two pivots of the armrest assembly allows for improved adjustability of the armrest. As a result thereof, the person is more comfortable during the manicure or other procedure.

  • Publication number: 20080083068
    Abstract: An armrest assembly for attachment to a massage table having a first leg and a second leg that is spaced apart from the first leg is used to support an arm of a person during a massage. The armrest assembly can include a first arm frame, a second arm frame, a frame connector, and an armrest attachment assembly. The first arm frame includes a first leg engager that engages the first leg. The second arm frame includes a second leg engager that engages the second leg. The arm frames cooperate to support the arms of the person. The frame connector assembly connects the arm frames together and allows for relative movement between the first leg engager and the second leg engager. The armrest attachment assembly attaches the arm frames to the massage table. With this design, the armrest assembly is uniquely designed to selectively fit different sized massage tables and the same armrest assembly can be used on many different models of massage tables.
