  • Publication number: 20230002074
    Abstract: An introduced autonomous aerial vehicle can include multiple cameras for capturing images of a surrounding physical environment that are utilized for motion planning by an autonomous navigation system. In some embodiments, the cameras can be integrated into one or more rotor assemblies that house powered rotors to free up space within the body of the aerial vehicle. In an example embodiment, an aerial vehicle includes multiple upward-facing cameras and multiple downward-facing cameras with overlapping fields of view to enable stereoscopic computer vision in a plurality of directions around the aerial vehicle. Similar camera arrangements can also be implemented in fixed-wing aerial vehicles.

  • Patent number: 11542166
    Abstract: An apparatus and method to exfoliate a graphite grain is described. A mixture of a graphite grain and a fluid medium are transferred into a vessel. The vessel includes an agitator and a chiller. The chiller chills the mixture such that the fluid medium at least partially solidifies into an ice grain. The agitator agitates the mixture to induce a contact between the graphite grain and the ice grain. The contact between the graphite grain and the ice grain exfoliates the graphite grain.

  • Publication number: 20220370042
    Abstract: An ultrasound probe (“probe”) for use with an ultrasound imaging system is disclosed. In particular, the probe is sized and configured so as to be supported and readily used with as little as one finger on a single hand of a user of the imaging system. This configuration enables remaining fingers on the hand of the user to be employed for other purposes, such as skin traction and patient contact. In one embodiment, therefore, an ultrasound probe is disclosed, comprising a body, a lens included on head portion of the body, a stabilizing portion extending from the body and configured to stabilize the body on a skin surface of a patient without user assistance, and a finger grip portion configured to enable a user of the probe to grasp and maneuver the probe during use thereof with no more than two fingers on a single hand of the user.

  • Patent number: 7541475
    Abstract: This invention is directed to processes for making substituted thiazoles. The substituted thiazole, ethyl 2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-4-methyl-1,3-thiazole-5-carboxylate, also known as TEI-6720, is useful for treatment of gout and hyperuricemia. This compound belongs to a class of substituted thiazoles that inhibit xanthine oxidase and thus block uric acid production.
