  • Publication number: 20230014514
    Abstract: A piston, in particular for a gear-change selector, including a piston body with a piston skirt and with a piston end face which can be pressurised with a working fluid. The piston includes a first sealing portion and a second sealing portion. The piston body and the first sealing portion have mutually complementary geometries so that they form a first vent channel. The first vent channel is arranged in a hydraulic series circuit with the second sealing portion. The second sealing portion prevents venting up to a first pressure and allows this above the first pressure. The invention furthermore concerns a gear-change selector and a gearshift for a vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11556878
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for managing organizational or corporate structures, including the employee roles or activities administered by human resources. A portion of the role datasets received within human resource records may be used to generate role tokens comprising unique datasets that have been truncated and deduped. Such tokens may be extracted based on assigned prioritization scores, and further assigned training labels representing categorical levels. Predictive labels may be assigned to a remaining portion of the extracted tokens via a logistic regression classifier, and a model organizational dataset may be generated based on the assigned training labels and the assigned predictive labels. The prediction certainty of the role tokens in the model organizational dataset may be used to map the identified role tokens to the roles represented in the human resource records.

  • Patent number: 11504055
    Abstract: The following disclosure discusses systems and methods of detecting and analyzing cutaneous conditions. According to one embodiment, a 2D image of the cutaneous condition and a set of 3D point clouds associated with the 2D image are captured using an image capturing device. The 2D image and the set of 3D point clouds are sent to a computing device. The computing device generates a 3D surface according to the set of 3D point clouds. Subsequently, the computing device receives a depth map for the 2D image based upon the 3D surface from another computing device such that the depth map comprises depth data for each pixel of the 2D image. The cutaneous condition may then be measured and analyzed based upon the depth map using the computing device.

  • Patent number: 11484638
    Abstract: Leak location devices and methods of using leak location devices that can be used in conjunction with negative pressure wound therapy systems are disclosed. In some embodiments, a leak location device can include a microphone for detecting sound pressure produced by a leak. Detected sound pressure can be compared to a threshold, which can correspond to background or ambient sound pressure. Background or ambient sound pressure can correspond to sound produced by a negative pressure source. The leak detection device can include a display configured to visually depict the detected sound, and a light source which creates a visual depiction of the coverage angle of the microphone.

  • Patent number: 11435424
    Abstract: A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system can include a processor and a memory. The processor can receive an acquired magnetic resonance (MR) dataset having a first signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The processor can extract, from the acquired MR dataset, a first set of values corresponding to a first variable having a second SNR and a second set of values corresponding to a second variable. The processor can apply a constraint function that includes a function of the first variable and the second variable. The processor can minimize a cost function according to the constraint function to generate a cost function solution. The processor can input the first variable and the second variable into the cost function solution to generate a modified first variable having a third SNR, the third SNR being greater than the second SNR.
