  • Publication number: 20220177681
    Abstract: Compositions comprising post-consumer recycled (PCR) waste are described. The PCR is combined with at least one virgin resin and a propylene-based compatibilizer that enhances the blend between the PCR and virgin resin as well as improving one or more physical properties of the composition. The propylene-based compatibilizer is a reactor made thermoplastic polyolefin or a heterophasic copolymer with a semi-crystalline matrix and a rubber component. This allows for the selection of a compatibilizer that can shift the composition's physical properties based on the end use application, and provide a stronger, miscible blend.

  • Publication number: 20220011783
    Abstract: A system and a method are disclosed for a vehicle control and interface system configured to facilitate control of different vehicles through universal mechanisms. The vehicle control and interface system can be integrated with different types of vehicles (e.g., rotorcraft, fixed-wing aircraft, motor vehicles, watercraft, etc.) in order to facilitate operation of the different vehicles using universal vehicle control inputs. In particular, the vehicle control and interface system converts universal vehicle control inputs describing a requested trajectory of a vehicle received from one or more universal vehicle control interfaces into commands for specific actuators of the vehicle configured to adjust a current trajectory of the vehicle to the requested trajectory. In order to convert the universal vehicle control inputs to actuator commands the vehicle control and interface system processes the universal vehicle control inputs using a universal vehicle control router.

  • Publication number: 20210321035
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method performable with an imaging device comprises selecting a frame from a video feed output with the imaging device during a movement of the imaging device relative to a body part and detecting the body part in the frame. If the body part is detected, a first process is performed comprising: calculating an azimuth angle of the imaging device relative to the body part, calculating a metering region for the body part, and measuring a motion characteristic of the movement. The method also involves qualifying the frame based on at least one of the azimuth angle and the motion characteristic. If the frame is qualified, a second process is performed comprising: adjusting a setting of the imaging device based on the metering region, capturing an image of the body part with the imaging device based on the setting, identifying a location of the image relative to the body part based on the azimuth angle, and associating the image with a reference to the location.
