  • Patent number: 11912066
    Abstract: Systems, methods and apparatus for automated vehicle wheel removal and replacement are provided. One system includes a computer system with applications for scheduling the replacement of tires for the vehicle. An electronically controlled lift device and robotic apparatus is configured for interaction with the computer system. The lift device mechanically adjusts arms for placement on lift points of vehicles. The robotic apparatus detects positioning of lug nut configuration for a wheel, removes lug nuts, and then removes the wheel from the wheel hub with gripping arms. The wheel and tire are then handed off to a separate tire changing machine. When a new tire is replaced the robotic apparatus then mounts the wheel to the original wheel hub, and then secures the lug nuts to the lug nut bolts.

  • Publication number: 20230135757
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for generating a combined three-dimensional ultrasound image of a body portion are described. Therein, two ultrasound scans are preformed, using a relative tracking system, specifically an inertial tracking, and two partial volume images are generated therefrom. The first and second volumes have an overlapping volume containing a predetermined anatomical structure. Then, respective anatomical structure position data indicative of the position of the predetermined anatomical structure in the respective partial volume image are identified by image segmentation. Then, an initial spatial relationship between the first and second partial volume images is established, based on the identified first and second anatomical structure position data. Then a fine registration algorithm using the initial spatial relationship as an initial input is carried out; and the partial volume images are combined in the common volume using the fine-registered spatial relationship.

  • Publication number: 20230071279
    Abstract: A steering control system adapted for use on a vehicle having two or more wheels each configured to rotate about a rotational axis, at least one of the wheels being a driven wheel and at least one of the wheels being a turning wheel, and an automatic pivot steer mode. The system further comprises a vehicle speed sensor, a steering sensor, a steering control device, a speed control device, and a controller in communication with the speed sensor, the steering sensor, and the speed control device. The controller receives inputs from the speed sensor and the steering sensor and, if both inputs fall within a predetermined range, activates a speed control device thereby altering the rotational speed or direction of at least one of the two or more wheels of the vehicle, reducing the turning radius of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11504723
    Abstract: A spray head adapted for connection to a supply of fluid. The head includes a body to receive the supply of fluid and a number of conical mixing volumes, in fluid connection with the body and supply of fluid, each conical mixing volume having an outlet. Each conical mixing volume includes at least one first inlet for a flow of fluid into the conical mixing volume at an angle to a conical axis thereof, and at least one second inlet for a flow of fluid into the conical mixing volume substantially parallel to the conical axis. There is a valve disposed upstream of the conical mixing volumes, the valve adapted to divide and vary the supply of fluid flow between the at least one first inlet and the at least one second inlet, which in turn varies the output of the fluid from the outlet of the conical mixing volumes.
