  • Publication number: 20220199812
    Abstract: Transistor structures with monocrystalline metal chalcogenide channel materials are formed from a plurality of template regions patterned over a substrate. A crystal of metal chalcogenide may be preferentially grown from a template region and the metal chalcogenide crystals then patterned into the channel region of a transistor. The template regions may be formed by nanometer-dimensioned patterning of a metal precursor, a growth promoter, a growth inhibitor, or a defected region. A metal precursor may be a metal oxide suitable, which is chalcogenated when exposed to a chalcogen precursor at elevated temperature, for example in a chemical vapor deposition process.

  • Publication number: 20220100743
    Abstract: The APPARATUSES, METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR A LEAD GENERATING HUB (“HUB”) facilitates the generation, evaluation, and recording of information and activities related to property transactions and associated communications. In embodiments, the HUB may be configured to identify leads for users based on user-entered information, user contacts, and/or the properties associated with a user and/or in which a user is interested. Leveraging connectivity between contract relationship management functionality, property listing service features, intelligent inbox coordination capabilities, and/or the like, the HUB may identify connections between user requirements and/or assets and opportunities to fulfill those requirements and/or to transact those assets.

  • Publication number: 20220025920
    Abstract: A self-reacting center wheel nut assembly includes a reaction ring (120) formed between a center wheel nut (110) and a lock collar assembly (130). The self-reacting center wheel nut assembly may also include a washer (140) and O-rings. The self-reacting center wheel nut assembly improves and simplifies wheel bolt tightening; uses the lock collar assembly as a reaction point by transferring opposing torque generated during installation and removal through the reaction ring, which is reacted on by a dual sleeved drive assembly; may be used with HYTORC electric battery powered torque multiplier gun/tools to deliver quick, accurate and precise torque; eliminates the need for external reaction points such as the rim or ground, thereby eliminating side loads and damage to the wheel; is fully sealed and lubricated; eliminates vehicle movement and the need to lock the brakes; reduces operator fatigue, chances of injury and saves operator time and energy.

  • Publication number: 20210390613
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a computer-based system for managing just-in-time preparation and delivery of food products. In the system, customers can build, place, and pay for their order. Once the order is placed, the system will track the users location, only starting to prepare their food when the customer is within a specific proximity to the retail location. The proximity will be dynamic and expand and contract with the customer's movements. Finally, the system will coordinate the preparation, assembly and packaging of the order to provide just-in-time delivery of the customer's order, thereby reducing food waste and enhancing the freshness and taste of the product delivered to improve the customer experience.

  • Publication number: 20210382884
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods that can extract part data from a PLM database and suggest changes to the manufacturing of the part. In one example, the method may include querying a database for a plurality of values of a part to be manufactured from a plurality of fields of computer-aided design (CAD) file stored in the database, mapping the plurality of fields of the CAD file to a plurality of corresponding fields of a host platform based on a type of the database, extracting the plurality of values from the CAD file and transferring the plurality of values to the mapped plurality of corresponding fields of the host platform, determining changes to one or more manufacturing attributes of the part to be manufactured based on the transferred plurality of values, and outputting the changes to a display.

  • Patent number: 11164401
    Abstract: A vehicle system includes a vehicle component with a component temperature sensor, and a fluid circuit in fluid communication with the component and with a fluid temperature sensor. A controller is in communication with the component sensor and the fluid sensor. The controller is configured to, in response to a temperature difference between the component sensor and the fluid sensor being greater than a predetermined threshold value, output a flag or a diagnostic code indicative of a fluid level in the fluid circuit. A vehicle diagnostic method and a vehicle are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20210018986
    Abstract: The interactive holographic human-computer interface (H2CI) has the following key capabilities: 1. Support for multiple applications just as today's human-computer interfaces support any application that is developed for the computer 2. Provision of the convenience, efficiency, combined data display and input interface of virtual physical controls (displayed as holograms) 3. Interaction with the virtual physical controls, as the actual interface to the local or external system, would also result in changes to the system being controlled, not just in the displayed holograms 4. Use of sensor feedback (in realtime, under computer control), including EMR emission and detection, to allow synchronization of physical objects with each other, under the control of virtual objects representing both the targets and tools or instruments to manipulate them 5. holographic interface that would distinguish the type of motion 6.
