  • Publication number: 20200395029
    Abstract: Utilizing an adaptive multichannel technique to mitigate reverberation present in received audio signals, prior to providing corresponding audio data to one or more additional component(s), such as automatic speech recognition (ASR) components. Implementations disclosed herein are “adaptive”, in that they utilize a filter, in the reverberation mitigation, that is online, causal and varies depending on characteristics of the input. Implementations disclosed herein are “multichannel”, in that a corresponding audio signal is received from each of multiple audio transducers (also referred to herein as “microphones”) of a client device, and the multiple audio signals (e.g., frequency domain representations thereof) are utilized in updating of the filter—and dereverberation occurs for audio data corresponding to each of the audio signals (e.g., frequency domain representations thereof) prior to the audio data being provided to ASR component(s) and/or other component(s).

  • Publication number: 20200353615
    Abstract: A pneumatic robotic tool, such as grinder, sander, etc., implements passive force control and compliance using two or more double-acting pneumatic pistons distributed about a pneumatic motor within the tool housing. The multiple pistons facilitate a compact design, reducing tool stack height, as compared to prior-art, single-piston designs. In one embodiment, filtered breather vents and an air pressure equalization passage maintain ambient atmospheric pressure throughout the tool, while preventing the infiltration of dust and other particulates. In one embodiment, a hard port rigidly affixed to the tool housing is provided for at least motor supply pneumatic fluid. The motor supply air is transferred from the hard port to the pneumatic motor via a flexible pneumatic fluid tube within the tool housing. In one embodiment, the pneumatic motor discharge air is vented from the tool housing in a sealed passage that accommodates the tool compliance motion, and prevents dust infiltration.

  • Publication number: 20200318464
    Abstract: An automated system for use in well control comprises a controller configured to receive an input signal indicative of a fluid flow rate or fluid volumetric rate from a wellbore. The controller is configured to determine from the input signal whether the fluid flow rate or fluid volumetric rate exceeds a preselected threshold indicative of a fluid influx condition in the wellbore system. On determining that the fluid flow rate or fluid volumetric rate exceeds the preselected threshold, the controller is configured to automatically output one or more command signals initiating an initial well control protocol.
