  • Patent number: 10449619
    Abstract: A system (40) for processing a workpiece includes a support surface (88) for supporting a workpiece (44). The system (40) includes a processing tool (92) movable with respect to a processing path. The system (40) includes a sensor carriage (408) movable along a scan axis and having a light source (476, 515, 550, 586) located to emit a light beam at an angle to the scan axis onto a target surface of a workpiece (44), and a camera (484, 522, 558, 594) configured to record location data of the light beam on a target surface of a workpiece (44) as the sensor carriage (408) moves along the scan axis. The system (40) includes a control system for generating a three-dimensional point representation of a workpiece surface from the light beam location data, to control movement of the processing tool (92) based on the three-dimensional point representation of a workpiece (44).

  • Publication number: 20190316652
    Abstract: An isolator device comprises a first mount coupleable to an input structure subject to shock and/or vibration energy, a second mount coupleable to an object to be isolated (e.g., an electronics device). A flexure structure is coupled between the first and second mounts, and comprises a plurality of parallel flexures, a series of flexures, and a plurality of transition portions, all defining an isolation path between the first and second mounts. The parallel flexures are tuned to resonant frequency to attenuate shock and/or vibration in an axial direction relative to a normal axis. The series of radial flexures are tuned to resonant frequencies to attenuate shock and/or vibration energy in both radial directions relative to the normal axis. The isolator device can be a single piece of metallic material. An elastomeric damping material can be disposed within openings defined by the flexure structure to dampen response at the isolator's resonant frequency. Associated systems and methods are provided.

  • Publication number: 20190318604
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for providing indications of received emergency alert messages to devices within a consumer premises are disclosed. In one embodiment, a consumer premise equipment (CPE) receiving one or more emergency alert messages from a content provider or managed network determines one or more alert responses for one or more devices of the consumer premise network. In one implementation, the responses are based at least in part on the received emergency alert messages themselves. The CPE issues one or more commands to one or more devices present within the consumer premises (which may be for example a home automation system), to indicate the one or more determined alert indication responses, such as auditory alert and visual alert by the one or more devices. Thus, users in the consumer premises may be made aware of an alert message outside of the typical means in which an alert is displayed, such as via a television.

  • Patent number: 10445807
    Abstract: This disclosure is directed to, in part, providing customers with an enhanced shopping experience during a visit to a physical store location. The enhanced shopping experience may include providing the customer with customized delivery of product information. The product information may include demonstrations of product use, samples of products, recommendations of related products or areas of interest to a customer, etc. To provide the customized information, the customer may register to be identified while at the physical store location. The physical store location may include sensors that identify a location of the registered customer. A presentation module may then push relevant content to a device located near the customer, possibly in response to a request from the customer and/or a location of the customer.

  • Patent number: 10445257
    Abstract: Described herein is a system for driver execution. A driver is loaded in a first domain with the driver controlling an associated device. In response to a request from the driver, the driver companion is loaded in a second domain different than the first domain, the second domain comprising a secure environment. The driver companion communicates with the associated device. Communications between the driver and the driver companion are managed (e.g., by an operating system framework). In response to a request from the driver, the driver companion is unloaded.

  • Publication number: 20190312941
    Abstract: A method and system for measuring and analyzing in vehicle media consumption and user interaction with a vehicle through an in vehicle entertainment system located in the vehicle. The in vehicle entertainment system receives media content. The method and system monitors both the media content and user interaction with the vehicle with content and interaction measurement software stored in the storage of the head unit of the vehicle as a module on the in vehicle entertainment system. The content measurement software directly records data relative to the media content being played or user interaction, in real time, as a data set and transmits the data set relative to the media content being played and user interaction to at least one immutable distributed ledger. The data set includes at least the local time of the start of the media content or the user interaction and is hashed.

  • Patent number: 10432914
    Abstract: A graphics processing system includes a graphics processing pipeline, which includes a primitive generation stage and a pixel processing stage. The graphics processing system is arranged to process input data in the primitive generation stage to produce first primitive data associated with a first view of a scene and second primitive data associated with a second view of the scene. The graphics processing system is arranged to process the first primitive data in the pixel processing stage to produce first pixel-processed data associated with the first view. The graphics processing system is arranged to determine, for second pixel-processed data associated with the second view, whether to use the first pixel-processed data as the second pixel-processed data or whether to process the second primitive data in the pixel processing stage to produce the second pixel-processed data, and perform additional processing in the graphics processing pipeline based on the determining.

  • Patent number: 10423943
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems and methods for generating a set of recommended media works based on an identified seed media work. The seed media work is used to identify a set of co-occurring media works, which are defined as media works that have been intentionally interacted with within a predetermined time window as the seed media work by a single user. After the co-occurrence set is created, it is ranked and filtered. Media works identified in the co-occurrence set may then be selected based on their ranking.
