  • Patent number: 11411837
    Abstract: A subscription request to obtain notifications of actions pertaining to the data file that has been previously stored at the cloud-based file system is received. The subscription request identifies the networked device and a set of actions to the data file that are to prompt the notifications to be transmitted to the networked device. An occurrence of an action is identified from the set of actions specified in the subscription request and involving the data file. Responsive to identifying the occurrence of the action from the set of actions involving the data file and in view of the subscription request identifying the networked device, a notification indicating the occurrence of the action involving the data file is transmitted to the networked device.

  • Publication number: 20220130215
    Abstract: In some implementations, an automated teller machine (ATM) may accept a card. The ATM may eject the card at a first time. The ATM may retract the card based on a determination that a threshold amount of time has elapsed from the first time and that the card has not been removed. The ATM may eject the card at a second time after retracting the card. The ATM may retract the card based on a determination that the threshold amount of time has elapsed from the second time and that the card has not been removed. The ATM may provide the card to a card storage compartment of the ATM after retracting the card and based on a determination that the card has been ejected or retracted a threshold number of times.

  • Patent number: 11222549
    Abstract: A collision avoidance system for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) receives physical space data for a flight area and creates a virtual world model to represent the flight area by mapping the physical space data with a physics engine. The automatic collision avoidance system creates a virtual UAV model to represent the UAV in the virtual world model. The automatic collision avoidance system receives flight data for the UAV and determines a current position of the virtual UAV model within the virtual world model. The automatic collision avoidance system determines a predicted trajectory of the virtual UAV model within the virtual world model, and determines whether the predicted trajectory will result in a collision of the virtual UAV model with the virtual world model. The automatic collision avoidance system performs evasive actions by the UAV, in response to determining that the predicted trajectory will result in a collision.

  • Publication number: 20210315659
    Abstract: A new and innovative medical sizing instrument and method are provided for determining an appropriate depth and/or length of a clavicle hook plate for a patient. The provided medical sizing instrument may enable a surgeon to determine an appropriate hook depth without having to switch between different components, such as a series of templates. In an example, a surgeon may insert the medical sizing instrument into a patient the same as the surgeon would a clavicle hook plate, adjust the hook depth on the medical sizing instrument until a hook depth is obtained that appropriately maintains the anatomical alignment of the patient's clavicle and acromion, and read an indicated depth on the medical sizing instrument. The surgeon may then remove the medical sizing instrument from the patient and select the appropriate clavicle hook plate to insert into the patient.

  • Patent number: 10817458
    Abstract: This disclosure describes techniques for extending a range of bidirectional bus communications through the use of a differential signal path. The disclosed techniques include first separating the bidirectional bus into first and second unidirectional buses that transmit and receive signals, respectively, and then communicating the signals from the first and second unidirectional buses over a differential signal path. The separation of the bidirectional bus into the first and second unidirectional buses is performed using logic circuitry that blocks or permits communication between a given one of the first and second buses and the bidirectional bus based on whichever one of the first and second buses becomes dominant first. If the logic circuitry determines that the first bus becomes dominant before the second bus, the logic circuitry permits communications between the first bus and the bidirectional bus and blocks communications between the second bus and the bidirectional bus.

  • Patent number: 10794761
    Abstract: An electronic circuit comprises an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) circuit. The ADC circuit includes a pre-amplifying transistor and a quantizer circuit. The pre-amplifying transistor includes a base, an emitter and a collector. The pre-amplifying transistor is configured to receive an input voltage at the base that varies logarithmically; and produce an output voltage at the collector according to a comparison of a reference voltage and a difference between the input voltage and a voltage at the emitter. The quantizer circuit is operatively coupled to the pre-amplifying transistor and is configured to generate a digital value for the input voltage using the output voltage produced by the pre-amplifying transistor.

  • Patent number: 10686381
    Abstract: In some boost converter applications, an input voltage normally exceeds a regulated output voltage. The operation of the boost converter in this condition can be referred to as a pass-through operation. Using various techniques, the efficiency of a pass-through operation of a synchronous boost regulator circuit can be greatly improved. For example, a synchronous boost regulator circuit can include an input voltage VIN to output voltage VOUT voltage comparator that can accurately monitor the output voltage to detect the pass-through operation. In a pass-through operation, the high-side switch can be kept ON to maintain high efficiency, and the quiescent current of the regulator circuit can be minimized by setting portions of the control circuit into a sleep mode.
