  • Publication number: 20240025507
    Abstract: Various electric balance vehicles are described. In some embodiments, the vehicle has first and second housings with platforms to support a user's feet. The first and second housings can be rotatable relative to each other. The vehicle can have first and second wheel assemblies. A support member can extend within tapered portions of the first and second housings. In some embodiments, one of the first and second housings can rotate relative to the support member and the other of the housings can be rotationally fixed relative to the support member. The vehicle can balance and provide locomotion to the user. The vehicle can be light, compact, and/or have a low center of gravity.

  • Publication number: 20230331335
    Abstract: A variety of scooters are disclosed. In some embodiments, a scooter can include a pivot assembly that allows the scooter to move between a folded and unfolded configuration. The pivot assembly can include a knob that frees a pin from a bracket to allow the scooter to fold. Turing the knob increases compressive forces on elements of the pivot assembly to reduce rattling noise and wobbling movement when the scooter is in use. Some embodiments of the scooter can include a center stand that can be deployed from either side of the scooter deck to stabilize the scooter when the scooter is stationary. Certain embodiments have an ergonomic handgrip.

  • Patent number: 11772824
    Abstract: Systems and methods for obtaining images of a lunar surface and cislunar space using a hybrid telescope are provided. One hybrid telescope is carried by each of two spacecraft. Each spacecraft is in an elliptical orbit about the Moon. The periapsides of the spacecraft orbits are 180° apart from one another. In addition, the spacecraft can be phased 180° apart from one another to enable an offset in access times of each telescope to the cislunar and surface domains respectively. The image sensors associated with the telescopes can include a staring mode for collecting images from cislunar space, and a scanning mode for collecting images from the lunar surface.

  • Publication number: 20230133794
    Abstract: Various hub motor arrangements, systems, and methods are disclosed. The hub motor arrangement may include a transmission assembly to provide increased torque. The transmission assembly may include a motor gear, a planetary gear, an idler gear, and a ring gear. The idler gear may be positioned farther away from an axis of rotation of the hub motor arrangement compared to the planetary gear. The motor gear may drive the planetary gear, the planetary gear may drive the idler gear, and idler gear may drive the ring gear. The rotation of the ring gear may rotate a housing of the hub motor arrangement to propel a vehicle incorporating the hub motor arrangement.

  • Publication number: 20220348284
    Abstract: A personal mobility vehicle, such as a scooter, includes at least one battery and motor for powering at least one driven wheel. The vehicle also includes a braking assembly configured to isolate the motor from the at least one driven wheel such that power is terminated from the motor to the at least one wheel in response to a user engaging a braking assembly of the vehicle. The vehicle can include a switch or position sensor that interacts with the braking assembly to initiate the isolation of the motor from the at least one driven wheel and the switch or position sensor preferably is inaccessible to the foot of the user.

  • Patent number: 11212684
    Abstract: Aspects of the embodiments are directed to systems, methods, and computer program products for displaying floorplans and electromagnetic (EM) emissions to facilitate EM emission design within the floorplan. The display of the floorplan and EM emissions can be performed on a wearable device, such as a augmented reality implement or virtual reality implement. The implement can also facilitate a configuration, manipulation, and revision of floorplan and EM emitter positioning, to allow an operator to more precisely configure EM emitter placement and selection.
