  • Publication number: 20240115446
    Abstract: A remotely deployed, inflatable device designed to reduce or eliminate falls in senior living and assisted care facilities. Upon detecting undesired movement, nurses may deploy one or more inflatable cylinders, thereby inflating the device under one or both sides of the mattress, creating a barrier that prevents the resident from exiting the bed until on-site assistance arrives. It is envisioned that initially the operation of the device will rely on the remote monitoring of residents by one or more operators via live camera feeds. In more advanced versions it is envisioned that software and artificial intelligence will be able to use one or more camera feeds and will be able to supplement or even replace the need for a person to monitor any camera feeds.

  • Patent number: 11927839
    Abstract: An electro-absorption modulator (EAM) is configured to include an on-chip AC ground plane that is used to terminate the high frequency RF input signal within the chip itself. This on-chip ground termination of the modulation input signal improves the frequency response of the EAM, which is an important feature when the EAM needs to support data rates in excess of 50 Gbd. By virtue of using an on-chip ground for the very high frequency signal content, it is possible to use less expensive off-chip components to address the lower frequency range of the data signal (i.e., for frequencies less than about 1 GHz).

  • Publication number: 20240061140
    Abstract: The present device and technique relates to measuring geological formation permeability, such as by injection/withdrawal of conductivity-permeability doped fluid and measuring the magnetic permeability and/or conductivity of the surrounding formation. Before, during and/or after injection or withdrawal, pluralities of electromagnetic measurements of the radial distribution of magnetic permeability and/or conductivity of the surrounding formation may be made. The rate of change of the radial distribution of magnetic permeability and/or conductivity of the formation is generally directly proportional to the permeability of the surrounding formation. In implementations, magnetic permeability and electrical conductivity can be measured independently in time domain or frequency domain, such that the magnetic permeability mapping is not disturbed by other confounding electromagnetic parameters.

  • Patent number: 11860077
    Abstract: Systems and methods include a computer-implemented method for performing real-time measurements of drilling fluid in a well. A driver and a reference are monitored for responses by a measurement controller of a system for measuring fluid flow. The driver is configured as a driving electromechanical resonator for contacting the drilling fluid. The reference is configured as a reference electromechanical resonator for contacting the drilling fluid. The reference is of a similar construction as the driver and is in contact with the drilling fluid in a substantially same way. Real-time measurements are performed by the measurement controller based on information received from the driver and reference. A viscosity and density of the drilling fluid are determined based on the real-time measurements. The similar construction of the driver and reference enables mitigation of environmental sensitivities of the driver and reference, enhancing fluid property sensitivities to physical properties of the drilling fluid.
