  • Publication number: 20210042907
    Abstract: A method for determining part wear, such as using a wear metric, includes receiving, from a sensor, sensor data representing a surface of a wear part. The method further includes determining distances between measured points in the sensor data and points on one or more part models, which part models may include new part models and/or worn or wear limit part models. The method further includes using a bounding model that at least partially envelopes the part model(s) and the measured points to determine a direction along which the distances are measured. The method may also include quantifying wear using the measured distances.

  • Patent number: 10773228
    Abstract: A self-sealing container, used for transferring one or more air sensitive samples between vacuum systems, includes a housing with a cavity that holds the sample(s), and a lid disposed on top of the housing. The lid is configured to interface with the housing to form a seal over the cavity when the lid is closed. At least two flexure systems, each coupled to the housing and the lid, are disposed on opposing sides of the housing. The flexure systems apply forces to the lid that move the lid horizontally and vertically above the housing, into an open position. A pneumatic actuator, movably coupled to the housing and the lid, that is actuated by a change in ambient pressure. When actuated, it applies forces that move the lid horizontally and vertically to the closed position, in opposition to and in excess of the forces applied by the flexure systems.

  • Patent number: 10665109
    Abstract: An example method and apparatus are disclosed. An infrastructure device is mounted to construction equipment located at a road construction zone with an input view of a predefined area of a road. The device may receive sensor data of road users and the road construction zone. Responsive to the sensor data, the device classifies objects as construction lane markers and determines coordinates of the construction lane markers. Using map data indicative of drivable lane boundaries of the road construction zone, the device determines whether the construction lane markers are within the drivable lane boundaries. Responsive to the determination, temporary lane boundaries for the construction zone are computed and transmitted in a data set to at least one autonomous vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10249071
    Abstract: Provided are devices and methods for generating a view tile for a user interface. In one example, the method may include generating a top image layer comprising a plurality of transparent segments which are capable of representing a plurality of values based on which of the plurality of transparent segments are filled in with a color, generating a background color layer including the color, and overlaying the top image layer on the background color layer to generate a view tile representing a value from among the plurality of values. The generated view tile may provide a quick overview of an item with only a glance without requiring the viewer to read information in detail allowing the viewer to provide their attention to other activities.
