  • Patent number: 10967777
    Abstract: A lift assist device for a slide-out room includes a base and a floor support having a fixed portion, a deflecting portion, and a biasing member disposed between the base and the deflecting portion. When the slide out room is in an extended position, the weight of the room deflects the deflecting portion, thereby compressing the biasing member. As the slide-out room is being retracted from the extended position, the biasing member decompresses, thereby facilitating lifting of the slide-out room.

  • Publication number: 20200325968
    Abstract: A motor stop mechanism for a motor including an output shaft includes a motor mounting surface to which the motor is attachable and a threaded drive shaft fixed to and rotatable with the motor output shaft. A trunnion threaded on the threaded drive shaft is displaceable between a retracted position and an extended position by forward and reverse rotation of the threaded drive shaft. A housing surrounds the threaded drive shaft and the trunnion, and a stop limit fixed to the housing defines the extended position of the trunnion. In use, when the trunnion reaches the stop limit, the motor is stopped.

  • Publication number: 20200274391
    Abstract: A wirelessly electrically-coupled deployable apparatus comprising a deployable structure supported on a supporting structure for motion between a stowed position and a deployed position, an electrically-powered device carried by the deployable structure, a wireless electrical power receiving circuit carried by the deployable structure and connected between the device and a wireless electrical power receiver, and a wireless electrical power transmitting circuit carried by the supporting structure and connected between an electrical power supply and a wireless electrical power transmitter. The wireless electrical power transmitter is carried by the supporting structure, and the wireless electrical power receiver is carried by the deployable structure, in respective positions where wireless electrical power transfer between the wireless electrical power transmitter and receiver powers the device via the receiving circuit when the deployable structure is in its deployed position.

  • Publication number: 20200200243
    Abstract: A motor stop mechanism serves as a stop limit for a motor including an output shaft. The motor stop mechanism includes a motor mounting surface to which the motor is attachable, where the motor output shaft is positionable through the motor mounting surface. A coupler is fixable to and rotatable with the output shaft, and a threaded drive shaft is fixed to and rotatable with the coupler. A trunnion threaded on the threaded drive shaft is displaceable on the threaded drive shaft with rotation of the threaded drive shaft. The trunnion is displaceable between a retracted position and an extended position by forward and reverse rotation of the threaded drive shaft. A stop limit defines the extended position of the trunnion. In use, when the trunnion reaches the stop limit, the motor is stopped.

  • Patent number: 9675370
    Abstract: A minimal access tool includes a frame arranged to be attached to an arm of a user, a tool shaft having a proximal end and a distal end, where the tool shaft proximal end is connected to the frame. The tool further includes an input joint having a first end connected to the frame and a second end arranged to receive user input, the input joint including a virtual center-of-rotation (VC) mechanism which provides a center of rotation that generally coincides with a wrist joint of the user. An output joint is connected to the tool shaft distal end, where the output joint is coupled to the input joint via a mechanical transmission connected therebetween to correlate motion of the input joint to motion of the output joint.

  • Publication number: 20150095148
    Abstract: A system and method for generating a marketplace on a computing system that allows advertisers to bid for different modes of engagement with consumers that show an interest in the goods or services offered by the advertisers. The system allows advertisers to bid for opportunities to engage with consumers via one or more publishers, the opportunities offering different modes of engagement with consumers. The modes of consumer engagement include, but are not limited to, a click or other expression of interest that leads to a referral of the consumer to an advertiser website, a call or other communication that leads to a voice connection between the consumer and the advertiser, a submission of one or more pieces of information about the consumer including a request for the advertiser to contact the consumer and/or provide content about the advertiser, and an opportunity to enter into a chat session with an advertiser.

  • Publication number: 20150095142
    Abstract: A system and method for creating a marketplace on a computing system that allows advertisers to bid for different modes of engagement with consumers that show an interest in the goods or services offered by the advertisers. If the consumer engages with the advertiser via one of the engagement modes, the advertiser is charged the bid amount pertaining to that mode subject to certain modifications of the bid amount. One of the modifications to the bid amount is based on a performance index that is calculated by the system. The performance index attempts to estimate the present value of engagement opportunities provided to the advertiser based on historical conversion information associated with prior engagement opportunities that were provided by a publisher. Once calculated, the performance index is used to adjust the bid amount to arrive at the actual price to be paid by the advertiser for the corresponding engagement.

  • Patent number: 8948364
    Abstract: A method for screening incoming communications includes the steps of receiving an incoming communication intended for a communication device or a recipient and identifying a sender of the communication and a communication type, which can includes an email. The method also includes the steps of identifying screening settings based on the sender and the communication type and determining whether the communication is allowed in accordance with the identified settings. Further, the method includes the steps of notifying a recipient of the communication, if the communication is allowed. In addition, the method includes the step of processing the communication without notifying a recipient, if the communication is not allowed.

  • Patent number: 8619578
    Abstract: Presently described is a system and method for switching multimedia data communications, including but not limited to Voice over IP (VoIP) telephony, cable TV, digital audio and video. The system utilizes a single, integrated device to provide all PacketCable-compliant functionality, including enhanced user privacy, compliance with CALEA, E911 and other mandated services not available in conventional distributed PacketCable systems. High speed and efficient, low cost operation are provided by means of an optimized data unit encapsulation scheme for internal switching and routing. A proprietary fiber optic backplane and removable optical connectors are used to enable lightspeed internal communications hot-swapping of components. Furthermore, the present system is extensible to all forms of digital data switching and is secure, resistant to Denial of Service attacks, and fault-resilient.
