  • Patent number: 10429347
    Abstract: A method of determining a charge of at least one test particle (as herein defined), comprising: applying one of an electric current or a voltage across an aperture connecting two chambers, whereby the chambers are at least partially filled with electrolyte and whereby the at least one test particle is suspended in the electrolyte of at least one of the chambers; measuring a value indicative of the other of the electric current or voltage across the aperture; determining a time interval between a first and a second point in time, the second point in time corresponding to a point in time when the measured current or voltage has reached a specific proportion of the measured current or voltage at the first point in time; and determining the charge of the at least one test particle by: determining a value indicative of an electrical velocity component of a total velocity of at least one calibration particle having a known charge, taking into account that the total velocity of the at least one calibration particle

  • Publication number: 20190294852
    Abstract: A fingerprint sensor device with built-in liveness detection capabilities includes: an area sensor disposed on a top surface of a substrate; a stiffener disposed below a bottom surface of the substrate; a printed circuit making electrical connection to the sensor disposed below the stiffener; and a light source and a photodetector. At least one of the light source and photodetector is disposed on the printed circuit below the area sensor.

  • Patent number: 10406287
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed that provide smart alerts to users, e.g., alerts to users about diabetic states that are only provided when it makes sense to do so, e.g., when the system can predict or estimate that the user is not already cognitively aware of their current condition, e.g., particularly where the current condition is a diabetic state warranting attention. In this way, the alert or alarm is personalized and made particularly effective for that user. Such systems and methods still alert the user when action is necessary, e.g., a bolus or temporary basal rate change, or provide a response to a missed bolus or a need for correction, but do not alert when action is unnecessary, e.g., if the user is already estimated or predicted to be cognitively aware of the diabetic state warranting attention, or if corrective action was already taken.

  • Patent number: 10372292
    Abstract: Semantic zoom based navigation may be used to navigate content, such as content related to spreadsheets. Different gestures (e.g. pinch/stretch, pan, swipe) may be used while navigating the content. For example, while viewing data from a particular sheet in a workbook a pinch gesture may be received that changes the displayed content to a thumbnail view showing thumbnails that each represent a different sheet within the workbook. A gesture may also be received to change a view of an object. For example, a user may perform a stretch gesture near an object (e.g. a chart, graph, . . . ) that changes the current view to a view showing underlying data for the object. A user may also perform a gesture (e.g. a stretch gesture) on a portion of a displayed object that changes the current view to a view showing the underlying data for a specific portion of the object.

  • Publication number: 20180029680
    Abstract: The present disclosure discusses a method of and an arrangement for the lubrication of a controllable pitch propeller of a marine vessel. The lubrication is based on continuous lubricant circulation from the hydraulic powerpack to the hub and back to the oil tank, when the marine vessel is sailing ahead with propeller blades locked in a desired position. The lubrication is performed by maintaining, at least when the propeller blades are locked in a desired position, a pressure difference between the astern oil chamber and the lubricant chamber for circulating lubricant from the astern oil chamber via the lubricant chamber to the oil tank.

  • Patent number: 9494430
    Abstract: A system for determining the position of a mobile machine is disclosed. The system may include a first sensor configured to generate a first signal indicative of a pose of the mobile machine, a second sensor configured to generate a second signal indicative of a parameter of the mobile machine, and a controller in communication with the first and second sensors. The controller may be configured to generate a measured pose of the mobile machine based on the first signal, to generate an estimated pose of the mobile machine based on the second signal, and to determine uncertainty values associated with each of the measured and estimated poses. The controller may be further configured to determine overlap of the uncertainty values, to selectively adjust the measured pose based on the overlap, and to determine a pose solution based on the estimated pose and adjustment of the measured pose.
