  • Publication number: 20190125968
    Abstract: An integrated circuit includes circuitry to control a process. The process includes adjusting fuzzy-logic control parameters based on received and retrieved blood glucose-related data, predicting blood glucose levels based on the received blood-glucose-related data, and generating control signals to control dispensing of insulin based on the received blood glucose-related data and the fuzzy-logic control parameters. The process may include predicting blood glucose levels based on the retrieved blood glucose-related data. The process may include transitioning between a post-meal correction protocol and a fasting protocol. The process may include transitioning from a post-meal correction protocol to a fasting protocol when a fasting criteria is satisfied.

  • Patent number: 4825374
    Abstract: An aircraft navigational system includes a digital computer, a first visual output for displaying to an aircrew a geometrical representation of an optimum descent guideslope relative to a symbol representing the location of the aircraft, and a second visual output for displaying optimum descent guideslope information, such as altitude and distance, alphanumerically. The visual display provides guidance information to the aircrew to control the descent of the aircraft along an optimum descent guideslope which is referenced to a selected end of descent waypoint such as a destination airport or to an instrument approach marker. The guideslope is calculated in accordance with predetermined airspeed and altitude requirements with define a descent profile which is fuel efficient and which complies with aviation regulations regarding maximum airspeed limitations.

  • Patent number: 4792906
    Abstract: An aircraft navigational system for providing a geometic display to the pilot of the vertical position of the aircraft relative to a selected vertical flight path profile as the aircraft progresses between its departure and destination. The vertical profile, which has a climb portion, a cruise portion and a descent portion, is formed by a number of navigational points, each of which is defined by an altitude component and a geographical position component. The profile points which form the climb and descent profiles are calculated from controller assigned altitude and waypoint constraints as well as from airspeed and altitude operating limitations which define various selected aircraft performance climb and descent modes.

  • Patent number: 4692869
    Abstract: Aircraft navigational system and methods are disclosed for creating aircraft navigational guidepoints during in-flight operations. A digital computer and computer control displays provide dynamic and static display of the aircraft relative to the flight path and earth referenced data. In one embodiment, a new guidepoint is located and displayed at the intersection of a pilot selected radial and a track line, such as the aircraft projected flight path, defined by a series of guidepoints which are stored in the computer. The selected radial emanates from a selected geographical location defined by a known latitude/longitude, such as for example, preprogrammed NAVAIDS, geographical reference points and pilot entered geographical locations.
