  • Patent number: 11445112
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining a location of a wearable electronic device are disclosed. In some aspects, the device includes a position acquisition device and an accelerometer. A hardware processor included in the device may be configured to generally maintain the position acquisition device in a low power state to save power. When a video or image is captured, it may tag the video or image with first location information. Given the inoperative position acquisition device, a current location may not be known. In some aspects, in response to a need for location information, measurements from an accelerometer may be stored. The position acquisition device may also be transitioned to an operative state, and after some time delay, a second location determined. In some aspects, the location of the capture may then be obtained based on the acceleration measurements and the second location.

  • Publication number: 20220276924
    Abstract: Often there are errors when reading data from computer memory. To detect and correct these errors, there are multiple types of error correction codes. Disclosed is an error correction architecture that creates a codeword having a data portion and an error correction code portion. Swizzling rearranges the order of bits and distributes the bits among different codewords. Because the data is redistributed, a potential memory error of up to N contiguous bits, where N for example equals 2 times the number of codewords swizzled together, only affects up to, at most, two bits per swizzled codeword. This keeps the error within the error detecting capabilities of the error correction architecture. Furthermore, this can allow improved error correction and detection without requiring a change to error correcting code generators and checkers.

  • Publication number: 20220259535
    Abstract: Some embodiments are directed to a system for the efficient cultivation of algae using both cultivation media and growth media. The system can include: discrete biomass receptacles, each receptables being configured to contain the cultivation medium and the algae; a supplier configured to supply the cultivation media to each of the receptacles, the supplier being configured to provide the growth media to each of the multiple receptacles, the supplier defining an orifice through which at least one of the cultivation media and the growth medium is provided to each of the receptables; sensors, one sensor being disposed at each of the multiple receptacles to sense conditions therein; and a controller that is in communication with each of the sensors, the controller being configured to control an amount of growth media supplied to each receptacle based on sensed conditions so as to enhance algae growth within each of the receptacles.

  • Patent number: 11270840
    Abstract: A process is provided for the production of rare earth magnets comprising the steps of exposing a rare earth alloy to hydrogen gas at an elevated temperature so as to effect hydrogenation and disproportionation of the alloy, mechanically processing the disproportionated alloy, and degassing the processed alloy so as to effect hydrogen desorption and recombination of the alloy. The process of the invention finds use in the production and shaping of rare earth magnets, and may be particularly applicable to the production of thin magnetic sheets.

  • Publication number: 20220046163
    Abstract: Systems, methods, devices, media, and instructions are described for fast video sensor adjustment. In one embodiment, a portable electronic device with image capturing capabilities automatically captures a first plurality of frames upon selection of an input button while sensors of the device are determining camera settings for the environment. The first plurality of frames are captured using different automatic bracketing settings. Once the camera settings are determined, a second plurality of images are captured using the determined camera settings. One or more of the first plurality of images are used along with the second plurality of images for a video file. The one or more images may be selected based on a match between certain of the automatic bracketing settings and the final camera settings.

  • Publication number: 20220039011
    Abstract: Systems and methods for device handshaking are described. Embodiments for client device and associated wearable device initiated handshaking are described. In certain embodiments, a device such as wearable camera eyeglasses having both high-speed wireless circuitry and low-power wireless circuitry communicates with a client device. The low-power wireless circuitry is used for signaling and to manage power on handshaking for the high-speed circuitry in order to reduce power consumption. An analysis of a high-speed connection status may be performed by a client device, and used to conserve power at the glasses with signaling from the client device to indicate when the high-speed circuitry of the glasses should be powered on.

  • Publication number: 20220038622
    Abstract: System, methods, devices, and instructions are described for fast boot of a processor as part of camera operation. In some embodiments, in response to a camera input, a digital signal processor (DSP) of a device is booted using a first set of instructions. Capture of image sensor data is initiated using the first set of instructions at the DSP. The DSP then receives a second set of instructions and the DSP is programmed using the second set of instructions after at least a first frame of the image sensor data is stored in a memory of the device. The first frame of the image sensor data is processed using the DSP as programmed by the second set of instructions. In some embodiments, the first set of instructions includes only instructions for setting camera sensor values, and the second set of instructions includes instructions for processing raw sensor data into formatted image files.
