  • Publication number: 20210297968
    Abstract: A method is implemented in a wireless transceiver device arranged to operate in a cellular wireless communication network and capable of operating in an unlicensed spectrum where listen-before-talk is employed. The method includes determining a first parameter, for the unlicensed operation, indicative on provision of synchronisation signal blocks, and determining quasi-co-location, QCL, relationship between one or more synchronisation signal and physical broadcast channel, SS/PBCH, blocks each having a first index, by determining a second index for the one or more SS/PBCH blocks by applying a modulo operation on the first index, respectively, based on the first parameter, where the QCL relationship is determined to occur if the second indices coincide. A computer program for implementing the method in a wireless transceiver and such a transceiver are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11059668
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an inventory storage module has first and second conveyor segments that are vertically spaced from one another and third and fourth conveyor segments that connect the first and second conveyor segments to define a movement path that is elongate along a longitudinal direction. The module has a plurality of container carriers that are supported by the first to fourth conveyor segments. Each container carrier supports at least one inventory storage container that can support at least one inventory item therein. The module has at least one movement system that can push the container carriers along the first and second conveyor segments along the longitudinal direction between the first and second module ends. The storage module can translate inventory storage containers around the movement path until a desired one of the inventory storage containers is presented at one of the first and second module ends.

  • Patent number: 10948287
    Abstract: A wearable device for spacing awareness including a housing assembly and an electronics assembly is disclosed. The housing assembly includes a housing which includes a lens. The housing includes a securing clip at a rear side to easily attach the housing to a wearer. Within the housing is the electronics assembly. The electronics assembly includes sensors securing within the housing and behind the lens. The sensors being infrared sensors that detect when someone is too close to the wearer through heat detection. The lens help improve the function of the sensors. When the sensors detect a person is too close to the wear a laser beam is emitted. The laser beam indicates how far from the wearer other people must remain so that proper social distancing is achieved. With proper social distancing the likelihood of cross contamination from air borne diseases, bacteria and viruses is reduced.

  • Patent number: 10781043
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an inventory storage system has a vertical stack of storage modules. Each storage module has first and second conveyor segments that carry storage containers along a longitudinal direction between first and second modules ends, and third and fourth conveyor segments that carry the containers between the first and second conveyor segments at the first and second module ends, respectively. The conveyor segments define a movement path having a closed shape, and the storage module translates the containers around the movement path until a desired one of the containers is presented at one of the first and second module ends. The system also has a multi-directional elevator having a platform. The elevator moves the platform over the vertical stack along at least one of the longitudinal direction and a lateral direction, and lowers the platform into an interior of the vertical stack.

  • Patent number: 10579240
    Abstract: A user computing device may receive a command from a user to modify an object of a canvas. The received command may be accepted and the user computing device may perform one or more operations on the object of the canvas according to the command, such as modifying a mutable attribute. The canvas state may then be captured by the computing device using one or more patches. The computing device may generate and store one or more snapshots to include a subset of the one or more patches and further provide the one or more snapshots to playback a sequence of at least some of the one or more operations that were performed on the object of the canvas.

  • Publication number: 20200057672
    Abstract: Data can be processed in parallel across a cluster of nodes using a parallel processing framework. Using Web services calls between components allows the number of nodes to be scaled as necessary, and allows developers to build applications on the framework using a Web services interface. A job scheduler works together with a queuing service to distribute jobs to nodes as the nodes have capacity, such that jobs can be performed in parallel as quickly as the nodes are able to process the jobs. Data can be loaded efficiently across the cluster, and levels of nodes can be determined dynamically to process queries and other requests on the system.

  • Publication number: 20190343024
    Abstract: Improved methods and systems for cooling a data room are presented wherein an HVAC mini-split unit is configured with a manifold and return air ducts that enhance the movement of warm air to the return air intake of the unit without mixing the return air with the cool air supplied by the unit. Other embodiments provide methods and systems for supplying cool air from a mini-split unit to the front of the equipment rack, thereby shortening the path of warm air behind the equipment rack to the mini-split unit and eliminating the mixing of intake air with supply air.

  • Patent number: 10206668
    Abstract: The provided technologies provide an implant closure device having a mesh layer formed on a flexible substrate, collectively forming a sealable member, that improves a seal formed over an aperture in a body lumen. The mesh facilitates a faster and more secure adherence of the sealable member to the surrounding edges at the puncture site. Furthermore, the provided technology may promote platelet-capture and encourage localized platelet aggregation at the exposed collagen in the wound edges on the mesh layer. The platelet impregnated mesh layer can facilitate cellular adhesion, enabling the sealable member that is local to the wound opening to act, in essence, as a “biological glue”.
