  • Publication number: 20210047003
    Abstract: A drive mechanism for a bimini top with a pair of bimini arms supporting the bimini top includes a motor, a worm screw coupled with the motor for rotation by the motor, and a driven gear coupled with the worm screw. One of the pair of bimini arms is connected to the driven gear, and the driven gear is configured for displacement between a stowed position and an extended position by operation of the motor. A pivot hub engages the driven gear via an intermediate hub, and the other of the pair of bimini arms is connected to the pivot hub. The pivot hub and intermediate hub are configured for displacement between a down position and an up position by operation of the motor through the driven gear and the intermediate hub. A first arc spanned by the driven gear between the stowed position and the extended position is greater than a second arc spanned by the pivot hub between the down position and the up position.

  • Patent number: 10897488
    Abstract: Techniques of operating a server computer running an application for clients operating in multiple network namespaces involve multiplexing communications streams from clients hosted in different network namespaces into a single communication stream to present the requests to an application as if they originated from a single network namespace. Along these lines, a server computer commences operation by initiating a network namespace driver for each network namespaces and a multiplexing driver to multiplex network namespace communication streams received from the network namespace drivers. When the multiplexing driver receives an application access request from a network namespace driver within a network namespace communication stream, the multiplexing driver provides the request and a network namespace identifier identifying the network namespace driver to a stream head within a multiplexed communication stream that includes requests from other network namespace drivers.

  • Publication number: 20210002070
    Abstract: A kit for forming a hopper bottom of a particulate material storage container comprises a generally conical lower section having a tapering diameter from a first end to the second end such that the second end is sized diametrically smaller, and a plurality of arcuate cone segments each defining an inclined concavely curved wall following a generally circular curvature, all of which can collectively form a hopper cone. The arcuate cone segments are connected in an annulus in which the walls of the arcuate cone segments collectively form a generally conical second cone section having a tapering diameter from one end to an opposite end which has a diameter substantially equal to that of the second end of the first cone section. Afterwards, the opposite end of the formed second cone section is connected to the first end of the first cone section so as to form the hopper cone.

  • Publication number: 20210006650
    Abstract: Described herein are technologies related to generating a predicted routine of a user of a mobile computing device. Location entries generated by the mobile computing device are processed to generate visit entries, wherein the visit entries are representative of visits made by the user to places over several days. An input sequence of states is constructed based upon the visit entries, wherein each state has a place identifier assigned thereto, and further wherein each state corresponds to a time interval of predefined length. A predicted routine of the user is generated based upon the input sequence of states.

  • Publication number: 20200391883
    Abstract: Disclosed are devices, systems and methods for global plane identification number (GPIN) generation and applications are disclosed. Embodiments of the disclosed technology advantageously enable aircraft to be tracked throughout their service life, and associate parts, software and services that correspond to a particular aircraft. An exemplary method for identifying an aircraft includes generating, based on a manufacturer, a model and a series of the aircraft, an alphanumeric prefix that uniquely identifies the model and the series of the aircraft from the manufacturer; generating, from a manufacturer serial number that is assigned to an airframe of the aircraft, a modified serial number; and generating, based on concatenating the alphanumeric prefix and the modified serial number, an identification number for the aircraft.

  • Publication number: 20200345487
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are described herein for use in the transvascular delivery and deployment of a prosthetic mitral valve. In some embodiments, a method includes inverting an outer frame of a prosthetic mitral valve when the valve is in a biased expanded configuration. After inverting the outer frame, the prosthetic mitral valve is inserted into a lumen of a delivery sheath such that the mitral valve is moved to a collapsed configuration. The distal end portion of the delivery sheath is inserted into a left atrium of a heart. The prosthetic mitral valve is moved distally out of the delivery sheath such that the inverted outer frame reverts and the prosthetic mitral valve assumes its biased expanded configuration. In some embodiments, actuation wires are used to assist in the reversion of the outer frame. The prosthetic mitral valve is then positioned within a mitral annulus of the heart.
