  • Patent number: 11553926
    Abstract: A compression device for freeing a ring trapped on a digit includes a rigid outer body. The rigid outer body includes a digit cavity extending from a cavity opening at a body proximal end of the body towards a body distal end of the body, a fluid inlet, and a fluid flow path fluidly connecting the fluid inlet to one or more inflation chambers positioned in the digit cavity. The body proximal end includes an upper portion, a lower portion, and two laterally spaced-apart side portions. At least one side portion is distally recessed as compared to the upper and lower portions to accommodate an interdigital fold. At least one flexible bladder lines the digit cavity, each flexible bladder defining at least one wall of one of the one or more inflation chambers.

  • Publication number: 20230009887
    Abstract: Data associated with a structure or home may be received from an insurance provider, from publicly available sources and/or from a user. The data may include information about the structure and/or items within the structure, as well as a locality in which the structure is located, and/or other structures in the locality or neighborhood. The data may be used to assess items associated with the structure to determine a probability that an item may have an issue. Other aspects relate to receiving a request for assistance from a user in identifying a cause of an issue and remedying the issue. In some examples, the received data associated with the structure may be aggregated with data from the user about the issue in order to identify a cause of the issue and develop an action plan to address the issue.

  • Patent number: 10079979
    Abstract: The invention relates to a camera arrangement for a vehicle, comprising a camera (12), wherein by means of the camera arrangement a brightness of the surroundings of the camera is determinable. The camera arrangement comprises a storage device (38) in which is stored at least one brightness reference value (34) capturable by the camera. This reference value (34) is correlated with a corresponding value (36) indicative of a photometric quantity measurable by means of a photometer (14) at this brightness. An evaluation unit of the camera arrangement is designed for comparing a brightness value determined by the camera with the brightness reference value (34). Furthermore, the invention relates to a method for calibrating a camera (12) and for operating a camera arrangement.

  • Patent number: 9649973
    Abstract: A method and system for correcting an inclination of headlights of a motor vehicle based on measurements of accelerations of the vehicle supplied by a sensor borne by the motor vehicle. The method and system comprises a step of computing a variation of inclination of the vehicle between a first distinct instant and a second distinct instant defining a duration during which the motor vehicle registers a single stoppage followed by a restart, as a function of the measurements of accelerations, and a step of controlling the inclination of the headlights as a function of a computed variation of inclination of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20150015711
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for detecting raindrops (26) on a windscreen of a vehicle, in which at least one image (30, 32, 34) is captured by a camera. An object extracted from the at least one image (30, 32, 34) captured by the camera is identified as a raindrop (26), if a confidence value assigned (S20) to the extracted object is above a predetermined threshold value. The threshold value is modified (S22) in dependence of the presence of an item (16) within the vehicle path. Moreover the invention relates to a camera assembly for detecting raindrops (26) on a windscreen of a vehicle.

  • Patent number: 6522732
    Abstract: A computerized method of preserving stable calls during a split mode operation of telecommunications equipment includes the steps of sending a call block update message from a first side of the telecommunications equipment to a second side of the telecommunications equipment. The call block update message includes dynamic call state data on the stable call handled by the first side and stored in a call block file in the first side of the telecommunications equipment. The method includes sending a call block update acknowledgement message from the second side of the telecommunications equipment to the first side of the telecommunications equipment in response to receiving the call block update message. The above steps are repeated until all dynamic call state data in the call block file is duplicated and sent to the second side.

  • Patent number: 5217067
    Abstract: An injection valve for use in a well, for example, an oil well, enables gas to be injected to cause the oil or other fluid to be lifted to the surface. The valve has a valve body having an inlet at one end and an outlet at the other end, which are adapted to be fitted into conventional production oil tubing. Within the valve body, there are a plurality of ducts extending through between the inlet and the outlet, for the flow of oil or other fluid. A gas injection port opens into the outlet of the valve body and there is at least one gas inlet opening in the side of the valve body, which is connected to that gas injection port. This enables compressed gas to be sent down the well between the casing and the tubing, and injected through the gas injection port into the flow of oil.
