  • Patent number: 10721578
    Abstract: Methods and devices for correcting warping in spatial audio may include identifying a geometric transform that defines a geometric warping between a first spatial geometric model that represents how sound is produced in a first volumetric space and a second spatial geometric model that represents how sound is produced in a second volumetric space different from the first volumetric space. The methods and devices may include determining an inverse of the geometric transform that compensates for the geometric transform. The methods and devices may include applying the inverse of the geometric transform to a first location in the first spatial geometric model by mapping the first location to a second location in the second spatial geometric model to correct for the geometric warping.

  • Publication number: 20200146205
    Abstract: A planter includes a seed a delivery system for delivering seed from one or more hoppers to one or more row units of the planter. The seed delivery system includes a number of seed entrainers. The seed entrainers receive seed from the one or more hoppers. The seed is combined with a fluid, such as air, which moves the seed through the seed entrainer and towards one or more row units of the planter. The entrainer includes one or more outlets, with the outlets corresponding to different row units, and the outlets can be varied based upon the need of seed delivery for the planter.

  • Publication number: 20200124856
    Abstract: An optical system including at least a first lens, a partial reflector and a reflective polarizer is described. The optical system has an optical axis such that a light ray propagating along the optical axis passes through the first lens the partial reflector and the reflective polarizer without being substantially refracted. At least one major surface of the optical system is rotationally asymmetric about the optical axis. A major surface of the optical system may have a first portion defined by a first equation and a second portion adjacent the first portion defined by a different equation. The first lens may have a contoured edge adapted to be placed adjacent an eye of a viewer and substantially conform to the viewer's face.

  • Patent number: 10581984
    Abstract: A network function (NF) profile repository function (NPRF) is provided to receive, for each one of a plurality of NF instances of a plurality of different NF types, information associated with the NF instance and store the information in memory. The NPRF may then also receive, from an NF repository function (NRF), a message which indicates a request for information associated with one or more NF instances of an indicated NF type. In response, the NPRF may retrieve, from the memory based on the indicated NF type, information associated with the one or more NF instances. The NPRF may send, to the NRF, a message which indicates a response to the request, where the response includes retrieved information associated with the one or more NF instances.

  • Patent number: 10492133
    Abstract: An example method is provided in one example embodiment and may include provisioning a user equipment (UE) with a list comprising one or more locations at which the UE is to report its location; reporting a location of the UE when the location is identified in the list; provisioning the UE with one or more access network selection policy based on the reported location of the UE; and applying at least one access network selection policy at the UE based on the location of the UE. The list comprising the one or more locations can be sent to the UE from an Access Network Discovery and Selection Function (ANDSF) server after the UE reports its location to the ANDSF server. The one or more access network selection policies can be permanent type and/or temporal type policies.
