  • Patent number: 10229523
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for systems and methods effective to detect an alteration in augmented reality. A processor may receive a real image that corresponds to a real object and may receive augmented reality instructions to generate a virtual object. The processor may determine that the virtual object at least partially obscures the real object when the virtual object is rendered on a display. The processor may, upon determining that the virtual object at least partially obscures the real object when the virtual object is rendered on the display, simulate an activity on the real object to produce a first activity simulation and simulate the activity on the virtual object to produce a second activity simulation. The processor may determine a difference between the first and the second activity simulation and modify the augmented reality instructions to generate a modified virtual object in response to the determination of the difference.

  • Publication number: 20180276326
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided that are effective to generate an alarm for a vehicle. The methods include receiving, by a device, a first sensor value from a first sensor for the vehicle. The methods further include receiving, by the device, a second sensor value from a second sensor for the vehicle. The methods further include retrieving, by the device, an instruction from a memory disposed in the vehicle while the memory is in a write-protected mode. The methods further include evaluating, by the device, the first sensor value and the second sensor value based on the instruction. The methods further include determining, by the device, that the first sensor value is outside a range associated with the first sensor based on the evaluation. The methods further include transforming, by the device, the determination into an alarm.

  • Patent number: 10079743
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for systems, devices and methods effective to monitor performance of a computing device. A computing device may receive a specified counting rate. The computing device may count at the specified counting rate to generate a sequence of counting numbers. The computing device may identify a first output of a process, such as results from computations performed on data, and may identify a first counting number when the first output is identified. The computing device may identify a second output of the process, such as additional results from the computations, and may identify a second counting number when the second output is identified. The computing device may then determine whether an alert should be generated based on the first and second counting numbers such as when a difference between the first and second counting numbers exceeds a threshold value.

  • Patent number: 9892197
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for systems, methods and devices effective to remove information from a network such as the Internet. In some examples, a device may include a memory including instructions and a processor configured in communication with the memory. The processor may be configured effective to receive user information relating to a user and search the network using the user information. In response to the search, the processor may find additional information relating to the user stored in the network. The processor may receive a first request to remove particular information from the network. The particular information may be part of the additional information and the particular information may be removable by a second user. The processor may send a second request to remove the particular information from the network.

  • Patent number: 9817626
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for systems and methods effective to output a composite image. In some examples, a processor may be configured to receive first and second display data that relate to a first and second image. The processor may identify an overlap region where the first display overlaps the second display and generate imaging instructions effective to cause the first and second image to be output on the first display and second display, respectively. The processor may further modify the first imaging instructions based on the overlap region to produce a modified first imaging instruction. The processor may send the modified first imaging instruction to the first display so that the first image is output on the first display at a first resolution. The processor may send the second imaging instruction to the second display so that the second image is output on the second display at a second resolution.

  • Patent number: 9472334
    Abstract: A transformer comprises first winding portions (101, 102) constituting a first foil winding and second winding portions (103, 104) constituting a second foil winding having a substantially same magnetic axis as the first foil winding. The first and second winding portions are interleaved in directions substantially perpendicular to the magnetic axis so as to reduce the leakage inductances of the first and second foil windings. The first winding portions are electrically interconnected so that at least one end-portion of each first winding portion is split to constitute two strips (105a, 105b) folded to mutually opposite directions substantially parallel with the magnetic axis, and ends of the strips of different first winding portions are interconnected to constitute connection bridges over a particular one of the second winding portions located between these first winding portions. The second winding portions are electrically interconnected in the corresponding way to constitute the second foil winding.
