  • Publication number: 20220094729
    Abstract: A live media streaming architecture facilitates live interaction among multiple participants, such as viewers and stage performers for a show. A cluster of computers is responsible for generating, transmitting, and displaying a composed live stream, such as a grid, of one group of individuals, by mixing live streams from those individuals, that will allow them to interact with a stage performer or other contributors or other individuals during an event. The architecture can support receiving the live streams at a physical location of an event or other locations for centralized redistribution.

  • Publication number: 20210277628
    Abstract: A remote control console or operator's station includes a proportional travel control joystick that effects continuous changes in machine travel speed through movement of the joystick away from a central-biased position, a sensor that measures progressively changing positions of the joystick, and an electronic controller communicatively coupled to the sensor and the joystick. The electronic controller is programmed to perform a closed loop control including mapping the progressively changing positions of the joystick to corresponding desired machine travel speeds, and adjusting the speeds of an engine used to propel the machine and the amounts of service braking used to slow the machine to achieve desired machine travel speeds.

  • Publication number: 20210172435
    Abstract: A regulator pump provides disconnects an inflow from an outflow, such that a downstream pressure is unaffected by an upstream pressure. The regulator pump receives a fluid through an input valve, while an output valve remains in a closed position. The fluid continues to flow to the regulator pump until the regulator pump is full. With the regulator pump filled with the fluid, the inlet valve shifts to a closed position, thereby isolating the regulator pump chamber from the fluid source. The regulator pump drives the fluid downstream to an applicator with the inlet valve closed. The regulator pump fully isolates the upstream fluid from the downstream fluid such that the upstream pressure has no effect on the downstream pressure.

  • Patent number: 10679421
    Abstract: An interactive spa that may allow users to experience what it would be like to use a fully operational spa. The spa may contain a cutaway, or a void, on one of the sides of the spa to allow users to enter and exit the spa without needing to climb over the sides. The spa may also have windows that allow users to view certain internal aspects of the spa for display purposes. The spa may also utilize one or more virtual reality sensors to allow users to experience, to an extent, what it would be like use an operational spa. The spa may include a monitor stand that may have one or more touch-screen monitors, which may allow users to browse through information about the spa or view the virtual reality content that users are seeing while within the spa.

  • Patent number: 10310826
    Abstract: Technologies for automatic reordering of sparse matrices include a computing device to determine a distributivity of an expression defined in a code region of a program code. The expression is determined to be distributive if semantics of the expression are unaffected by a reordering of an input/output of the expression. The computing device performs inter-dependent array analysis on the expression to determine one or more clusters of inter-dependent arrays of the expression, wherein each array of a cluster of the one or more clusters is inter-dependent on each other array of the cluster, and performs bi-directional data flow analysis on the code region by iterative backward and forward propagation of reorderable arrays through expressions in the code region based on the one or more clusters of the inter-dependent arrays. The backward propagation is based on a backward transfer function and the forward propagation is based on a forward transfer function.
